MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING
LEEDS CITY COUNCIL
April 5, 2005
The Leeds City Council met in regular session April 5, 2005 at 6:30 p.m. at the Leeds City Hall. Present were Mayor Dennis Paulson and Aldermen Ken Bischoff, Cal Schlieve, Lloyd Himle and Loren Lunde. Visitors were John Brossart Jr., Attorney Bill Hartl, Dale Robbins (Midcontinent), Bob Keller representing Bartlett & West Engineers, and Dan Schafer of All Seasons Water.
The council discussed cable TV concerns with Robbins. Right now the updating being done by Midcontinent does not include Leeds. Cable service as it is will be continued in Leeds as long as its franchise agreement is in effect (through 2011). If there is a possibility of the city receiving cable by fiber, Robbins was told that the interest to continue cable TV is there.
Tom Sabo entered the meeting to give the police chief’s report.
Keller and Schafer visited the council regarding the city hooking up to rural water as an emergency contingency plan. This hookup would be metered and if the city water supply was down due to a water main break, rural water could fill the towers. This is all in the planning stages and will be presented to the All Seasons Water board later this month.
Several city residents entered the meeting with complaints regarding barking and messy dogs. Tom Sabo will handle the complaints.
A motion was made, seconded and carried to approve a raffle permit for the WELCA.
Water was discussed. It was decided that the city’s system needs new filters and greensand. The mains will be flushed as soon as possible.
Applications were reviewed for the dumpgrounds position. Tamie Brossart was hired. The city will be having a cleanup week in May with the dumpgrounds being open each night. Dates will be announced later.
Streets and catch basins were discussed. Three fire hydrants need repair.
The auditor will call the owner of the Park Vue building, which was removed, regarding the time frame on closing the hole left behind.
