Motis moved that the minutes of the January 18 meeting be approved.

Motis seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
Tom Lang of Otter Tail Power Co. suggested that the city place the new siren in the FSA-Bank Building parking lot. There is already a pole there so all that needs to be done is remove it and install a larger one.

Peterson made a motion approving Motis attending Cities Day in Bismarck on February 22, 2005. Motis seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
The council discussed putting a disclaimer on city building permits so the city would not be liable for plumbing and electrical work done on any property. All completed inspection reports must be sent to the city auditor.
Due to the ill health of building inspector Virgil Matthews the council discussed asking Clinton Huffman and Al Staloch if they would be interested in helping the city with building inspections. Weed will speak to both men.
This will be discussed at the March city council meeting.
