February 15, 2013
Monday evening the Gladbrook City Council met and Craig Sash, Ken Wiebensohn and Matt Koester from the Gladbrook Fire Department presented plans of building a new fire station in the next year or two. The current fire station is becoming too small as trucks are getting bigger. The proposed building would be 115 x 75 with 5 bays with an ambulance bay included. Each bay would be 75’ long. The building would include a meeting room, office, storage area, restrooms, etc. Koester said they have talked to a couple property owners about securing land for the new building. Watch for more details and fund raisers. Resolution No. 13-28 for pay application #13 for water mains was presented and approved to pay S L Baumeier $6,080.00. City Clerk Lori Bearden presented the proposed budget for 2013-14 and the Council set a public hearing date of Monday, March 11th at 7 p.m. to approve the budget. Sheriff Dennis Kucera presented the sheriff’s report which showed his department spending 124.5 hours within the city limits of Gladbrook during January. There were 15 calls for service. Public Works Director Mark Lowry said the DNR is looking at redoing the bids for the lagoon. He said the new permit will require changes in how testing is done and testing for e-coli will be done as well. He said it could be up to 45 days before the new permit is received and the city will have a 3-year plan to control e-coli.
