Gladbrook City Council By Marcy Knaack
December 14, 2012
Monday evening the Gladbrook City Council met with Roger Luehring as Mayor Pro-tem in the absence of Mayor Keith Sash. Resolution 13-23 was adopted designating two handicap parking spaces in front of 412 2nd St. The handicap spaces are to be utilized only by cars with an appropriately displayed state issued handicap parking permit. The Council adopted Resolution #13-22 for an additional $16,000 to be spent on painting the interior of the water plant by S L Baumeier. Funds are available to add sandblasting and painting of interior piping filters and tanks at the water treatment facility. Public Works Director Mark Lowry received a bid from Feltz Carpentry to place steel on the east side of the library. Councilperson Trudi Scott questioned whether the west side of the building shouldn’t be done as well and Clerk Lori Bearden will have information at the January meeting as to whether there are funds available for the entire building. Lowry also talked about adding storage space in the Clerk’s office as well as the center of the theater building. Action will be taken at the January meeting. A pay application from S L Baumeier for $10,041.50 for the Gould Street Improvement project was approved by the council. The 3rd reading of the Golf Cart Operator Ordinance was tabled ‘til the January meeting as several council members were absent and clarification needs to be made on the use of golf carts on 2nd Street between Washington and Garfield Street. Sheriff Dennis Kucera reported 113.25 hours spent within the city limits of Gladbrook during November and his deputies responded to 21 calls for service. Council members authorized Clerk Bearden to submit the TIF report in the amount of $15,574 for the 2004 Main Street improvement project with the understanding it will be brought up again in January if there are any corrections. Additional claims were approved for S L Baumeier. Two were street related and were for Council approval. Three were for water main leaks that the Water Board will approve as well at their January 7th meeting for payment. Council members accepted the Annual Finance Report as presented. Lowry said he would like to meet with Council members Dan DeWitt and Sam Goos to look at Gould and 5th Streets to see what additional work needs to be done in the Spring and to include the work in the 2013 budget.
