City Council Minutes – February 6, 2017

The special meeting of the City Council of the City of Lamberton was held on February 6, 2017, in the City Office at 7:00 pm.

Members present for the meeting were Mayor Bill Schaffran, Councilmembers Darrell Knutson, Terry Neperman, Dave Irlbeck, Clerk Flaig and Wade Wellner.

The purpose of the meeting was to listen to a proposal from Bollig, Inc. about how they could help the City regarding the capital improvement plan they proposed in November.

Brian Bollig, Joe Gemske and Scott Kuhlman were present to discuss this matter.  Brian Bollig reviewed what had been discussed in November with the point being that they believed that it was important to prepare a plan that took a”30,000 foot” view of the needs to make sure that all known needs would be covered in the plan.  This would be done in a manner that would meet the criteria of Rural Developments “Professional Engineering Report”, so as to be used to obtain funding.   He believes that in working with other cities they have done a good job looking at all needs for the city and seeing what is available for funding rather than looking at one specific project at a time.

Brian still recommended that a comprehensive plan be done for the city which would be used the basis for seeking funding for any work.  He stated that their firm would do this without any cost to city.  They would like to have an agreement that would cover five years.

The council thanked him and said that they would consider this matter the February meeting.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.


Respectfully submitted,                                 Approved,
