April 11, 2001


A regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Louisville was held on Wednesday, April 11, 2001, at 7:00 p.m. at the City Hall. Present was Mayor Henry, Council Members: Rod Petersen, Don Harris, Dave Pankonin and Greg Manley. Also present: Attorney Roger Johnson and several guests.

Notice of the regular meeting was given in advance thereof by publication in the Plattsmouth Journal and by posting in three (3) public places as shown by the certificate attached to these minutes. Notice was simultaneously given to all council members. Their acknowledgement of receipt of notice and the agenda is attached to these minutes. All proceedings thereafter were taken while the convened meeting was open to the public.

Motion by Pankonin, second by Manley to approve the consent agenda. Roll call vote: Pankonin, Aye; Harris, Aye; Manley, Aye; Petersen, Aye. Motion carried. 

Motion by Manley, second by Petersen to temporarily adjourn as City Council at 7:01 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to open public hearing on South Ridge Subdivision Final Plat at 7:01 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Ron Ross briefly described the final plat: Phase IA and Phase IB will be developed as one phase. Phase IA will be single family urban lots with Phase IB the larger 20,000 sq. ft. lots. They are proposing water, sewer, grading, paving, utilities, etc to build this all in one overall phase. Mike Keyes asked if the plan he was sent was the final plan for the distance between the fire hydrants. Mr. Ross replied yes. Don Harris commented that he felt past village boards and planning commissions had benefited from mistakes made in the Eastwood Addition and Prairie Hills. Don is concerned the city will have to go in there, maintain it, put overlays on it and probably at some point in time, the City will have to go in and tear up the asphalt and put in paving and the people that have bought those lots and have paid for the asphalt will again have to pay for paving. Don cannot understand why we are making these concessions. He knows we are expecting additional revenue to come in that is much needed, but he thinks our thinking has been clouded by the fact that there is special interest here. Dick and Bob stand to make money on this and there are other people in this community that are in position to profit from this subdivision, too. He has talked to people on Main Street and there is a lot of people that don't agree with what is taking place and the way this subdivision has been presented. They don't show up to the hearings because they feel, like he has before, the decision has already been made by City Hall and the Planning Commission, it's going to go through, regardless. Quite often the silent majority speaks at election time and he thinks that is what happened at this last election and that is why they are all sitting there as new board members. If anyone wants to contradict the concessions made by the City Council and Planning Commission, he'll accept anybody's challenge and will respect their view. 

Steve Meisinger asked if the water supply situation could handle the additional houses. Eric Obert of JEO stated we are within 4-6 weeks of having the new well up and running. It will equally match the capacity of the existing two wells. We are going to exceed the capacity that we had, so we should be able to meet the high demands this summer. Mayor Henry commented on the drawdown figures on the well. The new well is significantly better than the other two wells, basically because of the new screens. What has been wrong with the water, is the well itself was not performing that there was no water. The new well has alleviated those problems. We are still waiting on the tests to come back from the State. Steve felt Don had some very valid comments. There have been some lessons out there from the last several years that is going to cost some, he included, quite a bit extra. His comments were valid about having to go back in there in the next several years to replace the asphalt with paving. 

Greg Manley commented that the trick to asphalt is the sub-base and it will probably not stand as long as concrete, but it is easier to fix and will stand up for twenty-five years if it is put in right the first time. 

Ron Ross stated they have been very open throughout the entire planning process and they anticipate having a very first-class development. As for asphalt, counties put in mile after mile of county road. The reason for the asphalt is they wanted to have a rustic portion in this development, due to the hilly, wooded terrain. The sub-base for the asphalt will have the same type of testing that they have under the concrete road. Those tests will be furnished to the city and there will be quality control. Years down the road we will probably have to mill off the top of the asphalt and put an overlay on it. This would be a very cost-effective way to deal with any future maintenance there might be. They propose to use 71/2" asphalt, most secondary county roads use 9". It is a rural road that will carry very little traffic. Mr. Ross would not propose this to the council if he did not believe it would be a quality product. Eric, as the city engineer, will have involvement in the project. 

Mayor Henry asked Eric Obert's opinion of the asphalt. Eric did not feel it would be a problem, as the traffic would be light. The heaviest traffic it will see is when the houses are being built. If the sub-base is put in properly it should take care of that. Repairs are easy; it can be milled out and resurfaced. The problem with asphalt is you will get some dipping that you won't get with concrete. Overall he thought the asphalt would be a quality product. 

There were no further comments. Motion by Manley, second by Harris to close the public hearing on the South Ridge Subdivision Final Plat at 7:15 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Motion by Pankonin, second by Manley to open the public hearing at 7:15 p.m. the rezone request for South Ridge Subdivision. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin, and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Mr. Ross gave a brief description regarding the difference between the RS (residential suburban) and R1 (single family residential). The request is to rezone Phase IA to R1 to allow regular size single family lots. There were no questions or comments. 

Motion by Manley, second by Petersen to close the public hearing on the request for rezone from RS to R1 in the South Ridge Subdivision at 7:17 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Motion by Petersen, second by Harris to reconvene as City Council at 7:17 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Attorney Roger Johnson addressed the council regarding the Subdivision Agreement. Due to the time he received the agreement, he had not had ample time to review it. They are working on the potential conflict of interest he has. Without the agreement there is a problem with actually giving approval to the final plat because of a state statute. By approving the final plat for a subdivision that abuts to the city, that subdivision automatically becomes part of the city. At that point in time, there is a problem with who is responsible for letting the bids, getting the engineering done, etc. There needs to be some things arranged prior to approving the final plat. The responsibilities in regards to the engineering, letting of bids, etc. Once it becomes the city's it becomes the city's responsibility to handle the engineering aspects. The cost does not necessarily become that of the city's, but the engineering would become the city's obligation. There needs to be some agreement with the developer that they will take over that function and comply with the same kinds of standards that the city would have to follow. 

Ron Ross spoke on behalf of the developer. He felt developer is responsible for designing, letting it out for bids, getting the bids, furnishing to the city the results of the bids and the recommendation to award the contracts to make sure the city concurs with who the developer hires to do the grading, paving, utilities, etc. They are starting right now to let it out for bids. It was their understanding that the developer is responsible. Everything must be approved by Eric Obert, the Department of Environmental Quality, Health and Human Services, etc. When it is done they certify and Eric recommends to the city the acceptance of the project and the city then takes it over. Under the state statute there is no formal annexation process since the property abuts the city. Approving the final plat is in fact the annexation and that is where the timing problem lies. Roger will need to sit down with Dick, Bob and Eric and find a way to work around this timing problem to allow the developer to step into the shoes of the city. This problem only happens when the property is adjacent to the city. Mr. Ross stated this is the procedure he is used to in Omaha and Lincoln. It is up to the developer to get it built and financed. It has to meet state, city and city engineer criteria before construction can start. If they are any changes that Eric, DEQ, HHS comes up with they will issue an addendum to the bidding process. When it is done, the water is tested, chlorination is done, sanitary sewer is tv'd and core samples if necessary. Once everything is satisfactory, they make certification, send it to the city engineer, he in turn makes recommendation to the city and the city takes over the facility. Roger wants to cover a couple of things in writing before there is an actual vote on the final plat. Roger will need to draft an agreement between the City of Louisville and the developer. There is no reason the developer cannot keep going on securing bids, etc. This agreement can be finalized at the April 25, 2001 meeting. 

Mr. Ross noted a few items on back page of the Subdivision Agreement that he wanted to explain more specifically. They are requesting the city consider cost of the outer lane on the extension of Elm Street, 75' of paving on existing Elm, the area along the detention cell. This amounts to $13,428, based on $28/sq yard for 7" concrete paving. The removal of the 75' of pavement and rebuilding, removal is $1,332 the new pavement is $5,740. The city in the past has subsidized the intersections, the T intersection is about $4,300, the cross intersection is $8,600. On the sanitary sewer, the distance from the existing plug on Elm street to the new manhole and back to just the north property line is 671'. The costs involved there is $15,000. The sanitary sewer lift station at half the cost up to $15,000. In return for these expenses, they would grant the city one lot on the highest point to allow for a new water tower if the city would need or desire a water tower on the East Side of town. The water main will be coming to the west boundary across a 20' easement. They initially needed it at least to Elm Street, they would like to suggest the city go on over to Limestone. It is not in the agreement, but they are putting in the service in for the sanitary sewer. The city would charge the $250 tap fee to each lot. An analysis based on the lots in Phase IA and IB with an average home price of $156,000 shows annual revenue of $90,000 for improved lots. The entire development the annual revenue should be $253,000 for improved lots. The Phase IA and Phase IB taxes are a little over $62,000 alone. The city's cost in the intersections (T and cross), the outside lane and reworking Elm Street is about $40,668. The city will not incur any expense on the sewer taps, as the developer is putting those in. Eric expressed concern over the easement for the sanitary. Bob Copple is working on getting that easement. Greg Manley asked if the pavement was the only thing they were asking for from the city. Mr. Ross said the water, the pavement and sanitary sewer. The streetlights would be installed by OPPD and billed monthly on the city bill. Greg Manley stated that in the SID's he has been involved in the developer paid the cost of the intersections, including the outfall for the sanitary and whatever it takes to get the water to them. Rod Petersen agreed with Greg Manley regarding the intersections. There were some questions on the amount being considered for the lot for a water tower. They are proposing 50% participation on the lift station up to $15,000 as a trade off for a lot for a water tower. Eric Obert said there is a trade-off there, there are no set rules on the city paying for intersections. There are no guidelines, typically the city stands the costs of the intersections because it is hard to attribute that cost back to the property owner. Don Harris noted there is a difference when the development is already there and there is no way to go back against the property owners on the intersections, but you can include the cost of the intersections in the cost of the lots on a new subdivision. 

Motion by Harris, second by Manley to table South Ridge Subdivision Agreement, Final Plat, Request for Rezone and Request for Waiver until the next meeting. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried

Motion by Manley, second by Petersen to amend the previous motion to table South Ridge Subdivision Agreement, Final Plat and Request for Waiver. Ayes: Manley, Petersen. Nay: Harris. Abstain: Pankonin. Motion carried.

Motion by Petersen, second by Manley to approve request for rezone in South Ridge Subdivision Phase IA from RS to R1. Ayes: Petersen and Manley. Nay: Harris. Abstain: Pankonin. Motion carried.

Martin Siebrass addressed the council on behalf of himself and Judy Meyer regarding the undermining problems on Elm Street. Both Martin's and Judy's driveways are undermined from a leak. There is a hole in Tim Seevers driveway where water is running in and undermining Judy and Martin's driveway. The water is going into the hole in Seevers driveway and coming up in Martin Siebrass' driveway. When the hole is plugged it stops coming up in Martin's driveway. Greg Manley had gone up to look at the situation. What has happened is the builder, when the driveways were put in; the curb cut was done right down the gutter, which is against practice and city codes. The water runs down the joint, the joint has never been sealed and there is three right down the road, all the same way. The curb was cut, not ground. When you cut in to a street, you cut into the continuity and strength. Martin's driveway has sunk down about 4". Greg felt the way to fix it was to groove it out and fix with a sealant to try to keep the water on top of the street. There might be settlement later but the damage has been done right now. Mayor Henry asked if the homeowner should re-pour the curb section of driveway. Greg felt it could be patched with asphalt or re-pour it. Mayor Henry asked what would happen if the homeowner re-poured the first section of driveway and pinned it to the street. Greg said this could not be done. You cannot attach a driveway to a street, because if the street moves or expands, it pushes the driveway into the house. There is supposed to be expansion behind the curb in front of the sidewalk and in front of the house to accommodate that and there is none of that right now. Mayor Henry asked Randy Payne if maintenance would go up and seal the crack. Maintenance will do that. Mayor Henry felt the city should send that property owner a letter stating their driveway had settled and is causing water problem and a hazard on the city street. Mayor Henry felt the property owner could not be forced to replace the section of drive but he felt they could visit with the property owner about it and it would not be a big cost to the property owner, it is not a very big section if you just go back to the first joint. Randy Payne asked that if the letter was sent, the property owner be requested to come out into the street 2 ft. If the driveway is re-poured the same way, the same problem will happen again. Randy also asked if there should be an ordinance stating any time you interrupt a curb for a driveway, it should be a ground curb. Greg Manley stated there is already an ordinance that states curbs needed to ground, not cut. Greg added that any sewer; water or gas tap or any patch in the street should be covered also. Reference was made to the area that has settled in front of Don Miner's house on Fifth Street. The council will send a letter to the property owner and ask them to consider replacing the end of their driveway to correct the problem. 

Paul Wiles presented plans for adding a garage between his home and the rental home next to him that he also owns on Walnut Street. This would then make the property a duplex. Paul had the survey completed and was asking for the two lots to be made one lot. Per Keith Marvin at JEO, it was not necessary for Paul to go through the Planning Commission as this would be classified under "lot splits". What Paul wants to do will allow for more parking for his renters. Motion by Petersen, second by Harris to allow Paul Wiles to construct a garage between the two houses and making it a duplex. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: None. Motion carried. 

Steve Rose asked the Council for some additional 15-Minute parking signs on their block for the Louisville Liquors, American Legion, Dari Crème and Video Hut. Discussion was held as to whether the signs should be placed on a post or painted on the curb. Motion by Petersen to place three 15-Minute Parking spaces including the one that is there, placed directly next to one another and to direct Roger Johnson to draft a resolution to that affect, second by Manley. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. Randy Payne asked if the contractor could provide the core drill for the holes for these parking signs and the handicapped stall. It was decided these signs should not be installed until the parking lines are painted on Main Street. 

Wayne Chriswisser asked for council approval to put a propane tank at his shop for heating purposes. The size of the tank is 120 lb. and is under the State Fire Marshall guidelines and will be about 4 or 5 feet away with a fence to enclose it. Fire Chief Mike Keyes asked that a warning sign be put on the fence. Motion by Petersen, second by Manley to approve propane tank for Wayne Chriswisser's property. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Motion carried.

Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to introduce Ordinance #699 by reading the title only and suspend the three required readings. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. Motion by Petersen, second by Harris to adopt Ordinance #699. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Motion by Manley, second by Petersen to table Ordinance #707 pertaining to the South Ridge Subdivision. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried. 

Motion by Pankonin, second by Harris to approve Resolution 01-11 pertaining to rollover warrants for Prairie Hills and Main Street. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to approve Resolution 01-12 for mileage reimbursement at .345 per mile. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

Eric Obert presented the two bids received on the Phase II of the well project. Bids were opened on April 10. One bid from Posphical Construction of Waterloo and one from Layne Western. The bids were within $3,300 of each other. The real issue is the start date of construction. Posphical Construction would not be able to start until May 21, 2001. Eric contacted them about an earlier start date and they gave May 14th as a date. Layne Western would be available to start immediately. Layne Western had the higher bid, but Eric recommended Layne Western be awarded the bid since Layne Western had done the work on Phase I. The advantage with Layne Western is an earlier start date and they have done all the other work on the project. If there are problems you will only have to deal with one contractor. A specific start date was not noted in the bid letting. Completion date in the bid letting was May 31, 2001. Motion by Petersen, second by Harris to award the bid for Phase II on the well project to Layne Western. Roll call vote: Pankonin, aye; Harris, aye; Manley, aye; Petersen, aye. Motion carried.

Bids specifications have been published for Prairie Hills. Bids will be opened on May 7, 2001 at 2:00 p.m. and awarded at the May 9, 2001 Council Meeting. 

Eric reported that water test results could be back in two to three weeks. 

Teri Scholting represented the Louisville Housing Authority Board regarding the possible purchase of the Oak Ridge Apartments. Roger Johnson reported the Housing Authority has the authority to act on it's own and to incur debt for the purpose of acquiring the property. The debt incurred by the Housing Authority does not become a debt of the city itself. Decisions are made by the Housing Authority Board and not the City Council. Mayor Henry advised the Housing Authority Board that legal questions should be directed to Roger Johnson and the decision is theirs to make. The purchase is contingent on USDA funding. Members of the Housing Authority Board are Teri Scholting, Secretary, Phil Pankonin, Carl Schliefert, Loyd Braack and one member from the housing complex. 

Wayne Chriswisser at the request of the Rural Fire Board contacted the Village Board of Cedar Creek regarding a request for $3,000 per year in exchange for service to help replace the rescue squad. Cedar Creek is asking where the money would go and what happen to the interest. A draft of an agreement has been received from Cedar Creek, which Roger Johnson has reviewed. Randy Payne attended the last Rural Fire Board meeting and noted that the rural board was not agreeable to transporting patients to a hospital of choice as stated in the agreement. Roger felt there are several items that need to be addressed in the agreement. Discussion was held as to whether it was the responsibility of the Rural Board or the City to pursue the agreement with Cedar Creek. Roger asked for an opportunity to review the agreement with fire department personnel. Mayor Henry asked Roger Johnson to address the issues he is concerned about and correspond with the fire chief, assistant fire chief and Cedar Creek. Wayne Chriswisser will contact the Rural Fire Board regarding their position on the agreement. Motion by Petersen, second by Manley to refer the rescue agreement with Cedar Creek to the city attorney. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

Debbie Wickersham of Data Technologies presented the Utility Billing Program for Summit software. The city is currently using General Ledger, Accounts Payable, Payroll and Bank Reconciliation software from Summit, but uses the Municipal Power Pool for the utility billing. The Power Pool software does not interface with the Summit software. The Summit software will do everything the Power Pool software does and will interface with the General Ledger system, which eliminates duplicating procedures and transposing errors. Currently the receipts for water bills are entered in the Power Pool system and manually tracked on a spreadsheet. The Summit software will also interface with the meter reading system purchased by the previous board. The advantage of the Summit software is it will automatically post to the General Ledger. Currently, posting to the General Ledger is done at the end of the month from the manual spreadsheet. The manual spreadsheet is also used to calculate sales tax to the State of Nebraska. The Summit software will do all this calculating automatically. The windows upgrade for the Power Pool software has been received and was paid for by the previous board. Membership to the Municipal Power Pool was dropped by the previous Clerk and the cost to have technical support from the Pool to install the upgrade and train on the new version would be $350 per day. The new meter reading system will not work with the current Power Pool software. The proposal from Data Technologies is $4,500 for the Utility Billing module. There is no support agreement at this time with the Power Pool. Motion by Pankonin, second by Manley to authorize purchase up to $4,500 from Data Technologies for the Utility Billing program including customary license fees and product support. Roll call vote: Petersen, aye; Manley, aye; Harris, aye; Pankonin, aye. Motion carried. 

Greg Babbit representing American Media Group addressed the Council regarding the merger and acquisition of American Media Group by Charter USA. Bob Canning from Charter USA was also present. The documents have been received by the city to complete the FCC 394 form. They are asking the city to approve the resolution and apply signature to the consent at the next council meeting. Roger Johnson gave some background information on Charter USA and what is proposed with the merger. The two main issues for the council are the ability to provide the service and financial position. Roger felt the financial structure was strong and Charter is making rapid improvements in areas where they are going. Bob Canning gave a little more background on Charter USA. They request the resolution be passed at the meeting on April 25, 2001. 

Dave Pankonin reported on the Highway 66 Bypass issue. Congressman Bereuter's office has taken this on as a project, along with the bridge at Plattsmouth. Federal funds will be needed to make the bypass a reality. Bereuter's office is giving $500,000 for a study, along with the $2.6 million on escrow. It could still be several years down the road. Mayor Henry complimented Dave Pankonin on the time and effort he has put in to this project. 

Discussion was held on the painting of the parking stalls on Main Street and the angle they should be. Don Harris had drawings of the angles of the parking in Nebraska City and Auburn. The smaller the angle, the more parking stalls you give up. The width of the stalls was also discussed. Sixty degree angles do not work well with the extended cab pickups and SUV's. Don recommended either forty or forty-five degree angle. Wayne Chriswisser asked if the first stall on each block could be reserved for compact car parking to help alleviate the problem of the extended length vehicles. Discussion was also held on painting the curbs red where there is no parking. It was suggested that a contractor be contacted about painting the stalls and curbs the first time to get the angle correct. Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to paint the parking stalls at a forty-five degree angle and solicit a contractor to do the painting. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

The water restrictions were discussed. Several residents had contacted City Hall regarding planting a garden, washing windows, reseeding yards, etc. and if they could use the water. Larry Wittrock noted that on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we are using approximately 80,000 gallons/day. On Saturday, Sunday and Monday 130,000 to 140,000 gallons/day running the well 17 hours per day. Larry found out the #1 well was not supposed to be chlorinated when the new pump was put into the new well and the chlorine that was put in has been blown off. The old well has been blown off, a water sample has been taken to the lab, another sample will be taken up and if there are two clean samples, we should be able to use the old well which will double our capacity and output. We are currently operating on one well. Discussion followed regarding the new well coming on line soon and the need for water restrictions at this time. Larry Gulizia asked if the water restrictions could be lifted with the exception of watering yards. There appears to be a lot of confusion as to what restrictions are on. Motion by Harris, second by Manley to lift the water restrictions. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to purchase a Crafco Crack Sealer for $3,500 for street maintenance. Roll call vote: Petersen, aye; Pankonin, aye; Harris, aye; Manley, aye. Motion carried. 

Summit User Group Meeting is May 10th at the Four Points Sheraton in Omaha. Cost is $95 for first attendee and $45 for second attendee. Lunch is included with registration. Motion by Manley, second by Petersen to send Candy McClun and Cheryl Knutson to the Summit User Group Meeting on May 10th. Roll call vote: Petersen, aye; Manley, aye; Harris, aye; Pankonin, aye. Motion carried.

Motion by Petersen, second by Harris to approve Special Liquor License for the Jaycees for the Louisville Daz Celebration. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

A letter was received from the Nebraska Department of Roads regarding speed zones on Highway 50 within the corporate limits. Discussion followed regarding the changes requested and the ability of the council to make these changes. The speed limit on Fifth Street going out of town by the Care Center was also discussed. Roger Johnson felt this needed a resolution. Motion by Petersen, second by Manley to direct the city attorney to contact the State of Nebraska regarding the change in speed zones on Highway 50 and 66. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.

The Cass County Sheriff's report was given. There were 218 hours patrolled, 39 calls for service, 14 citations, 8 warnings and 6 violations. There have been no further noise complaints on Good Times. Greg Manley reported vandalism to the Library drop box and asked that the Sheriff's department keep watch on it. 

Mayor Henry and Don Harris attended the Care Center Board meeting on Tuesday, April 10, 2001. 

Larry Wittrock gave the People's Service Report. There had been a problem with a sludge machine, but it had been taken care of. Power outages caused some problems with the well and sewer plant on Saturday, April 7th. Mayor Henry suggested that new well house be equipped to run off a generator in case of a power outage and that a PTO driven standby generator be found. Discussion followed regarding the wiring currently in place and the possibility of contamination if the water level drops. Larry described the wench and hoist that Marvin Kupke designed and to get the pump out at the sewer treatment plant for maintenance. 

Randy Payne gave the Maintenance Report. Repair of potholes has been started. In the past the State of Nebraska has striped the double-yellow line down the center of Main Street. Discussion followed on whether the line on Main Street was needed or not and the possible need to purchase a compressor as opposed to renting one. The cost to rent a compressor is $225 per week. Work needs to be done where the street has settled in front of Don Miner's house. 

Don Harris asked if someone else could attend the Build Meetings every month. Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30 a.m. 

The Jaycees requested to close a portion of Main Street from the Library to the corner on the West Side all day and from the bank parking lot to the corner on the East Side until 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 23rd for a Poker Run. The council requested the Jaycees obtain signatures from the business owners involved before a decision is made and present it at the next meeting. 

Motion by Manley, second by Pankonin to adjourn at 10:00 p.m. Ayes: Harris, Manley, Pankonin and Petersen. Nays: none. Motion carried.
