The Walcott City Council Meeting was held July 11, 2022 at 7:30 pm at the Walcott Fire Hall.
In attendance were Mayor Vining and council members Brown, Rhodenbaugh, Janowicz, and Oestreich.
June minutes were read and approved by Brown, 2nd by Oestreich. All approved, motion carried.
Vining reported that our payments for the John Deere tractor are now complete.
Vining presented the Release of Easement paperwork from the attorney on Koenig land purchase. We also received the paperwork for the Anderson property. Auditor Skoog will sign and file both sets of papework.
The Anderson property has mostly been cleaned up. Due to the personal items left on the property, the city will be incurring additional disposal fees for hazardous waste.
The Sherven property is being upkept by the city. It was discovered a leak has been dripping from the house and sogging the yard. It was also discovered that the curbstop was damaged, thus forcing the city to replace the curbstop today. Vining will be contacting the City attorney to proceed with paperwork regarding the property.
Regarding the 4th street drainage issues, a bid from Glacier was received, totaling $1500 to clean the ditch, and adding $800 to that total if we need to reset any culverts. Any dirt hauled out of the ditch will be put into the Anderson property to fill in the yard. Council agreed to move forward.
Ferguson should have most meters installed by the end of this week. Residents with uninstalled meters will be contacted. Auditor Skoog will continue to work with Ferguson on getting the new meter system setup.
Council agreed that they will continue with the one-time 10% late fee only on the month that payment is late.
Next Meeting August 8th, 2022.
Brown motioned to adjourn, Rhodenbaugh 2nd. All Approved, motion carried.
