MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING
MADDOCK CITY COUNCIL
February 7, 2005
A regular meeting of the Maddock City Council was held on February 7, 2005 at 5:30 p.m. at the council chambers. Members present to answer roll call were Mayor Kevin Winson, Marilyn Allan, Wayne Knatterud, Mark Finley and Rodney Maddock.
Renee Beeter, representative of Waste Management, was present to discuss the termination notice the city had with Waste Management. She informed the group the contract read “Notice must be given at least 60 days prior to the renewal date.” Maddock’s notice was not given within the 60-day requirement and therefore the contract automatically renewed for three years. Waste Management offered to drop fuel charges for three years and provide individual carts for each home at no cost, and continue to keep its service level where it is or improve it if a problem exists. Renee excused herself and the meeting began.
