Himle brought discussion about the county road five miles north being chip sealed next spring. It would be $2,600 for us to do our part of the estimated 7/10 of a mile. The county commissioners need to know by January 12. They are getting 80% aid to do this project. A motion was made by Alderman Schlieve to do this as long as it is in line with the $2,600 estimate.

Bob Yri was here regarding the water situation with the newer tower being shut down temporarily. Schmeets explained to him that we would have enough water to fight a fire in the event something like that happened.

They also asked about the water tower and what was happening with it in regard to when it would be usable again. They were assured that we have adequate resources for water with our old tower, the cistern and access to emergency rural water, etc. A letter will be sent out with the water bills explaining circumstances in hopes of alleviating some of these concerns.

Danny Scott, Robert Scott and Raphael Keller visited with the council regarding 2 a.m. bar closing to be reconsidered.
