Stacy City Council met November 14 for a regular meeting, Marie Lawrence was absent.  

The meeting began with attorney James Monge discussing a proposed contract with Cintas.  Monge said he looked it over and the only item he questioned was disputes with the company or contract would require City Council arbitration.  The council passed the contract unanimously.

The council then voted to remove a ban on lawn sprinkling that was instituted in the summer.

The council had a brief discussion on city employee uniforms.  Council member Tim Sawatzky said there was a discrepancy with other municipalities as far as allowances. The council agreed to have Sawatzky inquire with other cities on their allowances.

Last month, the council discussed stormwater fees to residents of Stacy.  Mayor Mark Utecht told the council it is his belief the best option is to do away with the stormwater fee and if the next council decides to re-instate that would be addressed at that time.

Sawatzky made a motion to abolish the stormwater fee effective December 31, which passed unanimously.

The council then formally approved raising meeting per diems to $60 per meeting.  

 In the engineer’s report, city engineer Dan Boyum told the council the city should consider looking into a future CIP or capital improvement plan for the streets Finch Avenue, Finch Court and Fenway Court.  Boyum said the streets are deteriorating.  The council agreed that Boyum’s plans for the roads should include the Maintenance Supervisor when the position is filled.

The council then passed a motion to approve an easement and combination of a property along the freeway along Fernwood Circle.  The application had already been approved by the county and the easement would be for utilities if a 307th Street loop were ever to be completed. All passed the easement.

The council then passed a motion to allow bingo to the Stacy Lions Club on December 9 at Rick Doyle Fields.

The council then approved Stacy Sports Bar manager Aerica Benson for tile repair. Benson had a quote for the repair for $1,250.

The council then agreed to appoint Carolyn Cagle to the parks commission.  

The council then reviewed letters of interest for the planning commission two vacant spots from Jeff Johnson, Susie Brooks and Dick Stiers. Sawatzky told the council he would step back and attend as a city liasion and a non-voting member.  The council appointed Brooks and Johnson unanimously. 

Finally, the council agreed on a gopher bounty of $3 per set of front feet.
