Gladbrook City Council By Marcy Knaack
April 12, 2013
Monday evening the Gladbrook City Council met and discussed snow ordinances that several cities use and the Council along with Public Works Director Mark Lowry talked what Gladbrook would like to see in their snow ordinance. City Clerk Lori Bearden said she would like the Council to adopt a snow ordinance by September 2013. Lowry said he had given a copy of the new permit for the lagoon which was effective April 1st to Engineer Mike Bearden as there are forms that need to be completed and sent to the DNR. The lagoon updates will need to be done by 2016. As the city is now testing for e-coli, Lowry found a site in Cedar Falls that will test for this. A quote had been received for storage conversion at the City Center to provide secure storage. The area is in the center of the building, adjacent to the concession area. The money for this project would come from the Gladbrook Foundation. Sheriff Dennis Kucera reported his deputies had spent 122 hours within the city limits of Gladbrook during March and there were eleven calls for service. Lowry talked about the curb and gutter project on Gould Street and said more dirt will need to be hauled in and when the time is right the area will be seeded. He said that Municipal Streets has looked at the area on Gould and 5th Street as to what street work needs to be done. A budget amendment public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. on May 13th. Under the consent agenda, a liquor license was approved for Hometown Foods. Brady Swenson was approved as a new fireman.
