Elaine Carr and Rusty Box were present to discuss concerns about speeding down in their area by 1st Ave and 11th St. There has been increased traffic and kids new to the area playing. They would like to see a speed limit sign placed in the area. There was much discussion on what an acceptable speed limit would be and if a speed limit sign would help. Syverson motioned to put a speed limit sign up and reduce the speed to 15 mph with a children at play sign. Simon seconded. Syverson-aye, Herdt-aye, Simon-aye, Thomas-nay.

Rusty Box was present to ask about a utility pole that he believes is in his yard. He would like it moved. Much discussion on the exact location of the pole and if it is in his yard or the right of way. It was tabled until Larry could go down and look at where this pole is located.

Matt Richard was present on behalf of the Park Board. They would like to put underground sprinklers down by the softball field and where soccer is being held this fall. They would use the preexisting lines but that section by the community garden would have their own zone. Matt just wanted to make sure the city would be ok with this. There is a section of land that needs to be deeded over to the Park Board so they will work on that and can move forward with the sprinklers.

The parking ordinance the city currently has is outdated so there are options being reviewed to update it. One option being discussed would be to have no campers, trailers, etc parked on the streets from October to May. Another option would be that all vehicles on the street need to be licensed and parked in front of own residence. Will look into other towns and see what they have.

The tree ordinance has been discussed and the newest one appears to be good just would like to see what species for trees or bushes are acceptable. Once that is added in the first reading will take place.

Lazier presented an updated Fire and Tornado Policy. It was found by adjusters going around that a few buildings were currently understated in their value. With this new finding and increased values, a couple questions were addressed by the commissioners. Would like to get verification on what is exactly all covered with the buildings. Tabled until they found out the answers.

Thomas would like permission to go and look at dump trucks instead of looking at a picture. The purchase could be paid out of sales and use fund, but not to exceed $60,000. Syverson motioned to proceed with looking at dump trucks but keeping at $60,000 or less. Herdt seconded. Upon roll call, all members present voted aye. Motion carried.

Thomas would like to create a new ad and advertise for a public works employee, preferable with water plant experience. The ad can be nationwide and more detailed. Thomas motioned to advertise for a public works employee for a month, month-and-a half. Syverson seconded. Upon roll call, all members present voted aye. Upon roll call, all members present voted aye. Motion carried.

AE2S Update:

New FEMA update with potentially more funding. Eric will stay on top of that.

Herdt-Stove will be coming out downstairs at the MH

Simon-asked how the new janitor was doing

Thomas-clean up letters for residents received poor response. Will figure out how to proceed without having to fine people but getting it cleaned up properly, will fine if need too. Questioned if getting a crossing put up by 3rd St would help with increased traffic for sports taking place down there. Unimog brought back and seems to be working so far.

Lazier-Had an employee ask if a deduction could be taken out of their paycheck to get a new phone. Thomas motioned that a deduction would be allowed but can not exceed 6 months and nothing less than $50 a pay period. Syverson seconded. Upon roll call, all members voted aye. Motion carried.

A.Thomas-Signed up two employees for a basic computer class. 4th Ave had a water main break but fixed. GIS programming was done on main Ave as a test. Will start going around town and marking shut offs.
