WEST WATER MAIN

Councilman Dahlquist wanted to expand on her reasons for voting nay on the west water main. She considers City growth possible when land is contiguous to City boundaries, able to be annexed and included in the tax base. City residents purchase water plus pay property taxes to support the City budget. Repairing the existing water mains is also at the top of the priority list. And the estimated cost of the entire project with man, machine, and materials is $11,000.00.

RURAL WATER FEASIBILITY STUDY

The meeting with the City Engineer, Mayor, Councilmen Green & Schumacher and City staff held on May 25th was reported on.

Another meeting will be held within the next two weeks.

We currently have not received a mutual aid agreement from the Pennington County to be a collection point for tires. Until an agreement is received no tires from the County will be allowed at our dump.

The tires we have presently will be sprayed for mosquitoes by the public works staff.

WEST NILE

An informational meeting on the background and prevention of West Nile will be held June 10, 2004 at 6:30 at the Community Center. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Advertising will be placed in the Profit and Post and handouts will try to be obtained.
