Discussion was held regarding renting or selling the old Mauch car wash to an individual who was interested in using it as a shop to work on cars. Council asked City Administrator Janssen to get more information before making a decision.
Discussion regarding the Parks included: metal detectors needing rules and signs, who would follow-up on violations and asking the Park Board member to decide if it really is a problem; sand volleyball court – the Park Board plans on raising money to add a 2nd one to Central Park; looking into a reasonable price solution for the tennis court; split the cost of the ice rink with the hospital and have them continue with programming – City Clerk will contact the hospital to set up a meeting; received a $10,000.00 grant from Alliant to plant more trees and Alliant staff would help with planting and the Park Board to design NE Park/trail and then a contractor can be hired.
Jerry updated the Council regarding the golf course. Jerry informed the Council they are looking into remodeling the kitchen using a grant from the Osceola Community Foundation but additional funds will be necessary to complete the project.
City Administrator Janssen reported that the railroad project is being worked on and he is currently waiting for Union Pacific to get back to him on a purchase price for the spur. A construction contractor and engineer have a plan waiting and have had some materials delivered, but cannot move forward until the property has been purchased. Janssen is also working with the City Attorney to review the possibility of purchasing as a finished product versus purchasing before work is done.
Council concerns and administrators report was given.
Motion by Pedley seconded by Groote to adjourn at 6:10 P.M. All voted Aye. Nay none.
