Pres- ent were councilmen Denis Joyce, Kin- ley Slauter, John Tczap, and Ben Bran- num. City Attorney Sandra Kuntz and City Engineer Mike Njos were also present. Minutes from the August 1 regular meeting were reviewed. Tczap moved to approve the minutes as presented and seconded by Joyce. Minutes were unanimously approved. With no objec- tion, Corneil changed the order of the Agenda and tabled some of the ordi- nance reviews until the October meet- ing. Chuck Andrus was present to once again ask the Council to strike Ordi- nance 8.0601, referring to Outside Dis- play of Merchandise. Corneil stated it will be addressed at the October meet- ing. Kailee Tescher requested permis- sion to have a lemonade stand during special events in Medora. The Council willingly agreed to her request and a transient merchant permit would only be needed if she planned on setting up regularly throughout the summer sea- son. Njos reviewed his written report. The Council prefers the bike path be built in the fall, during the off-season. Njos will plan on an April bid-opening date with fall construction. The building timeline is 6-8 weeks. Flood control slide gates have been ordered and they should be installed yet this year. Njos introduced Mike Berg with APEX to re- view the lagoon capacity study results. The results show that the city ponds are getting close to capacity. At this point, APEX was not hired to look at reme- dies. Njos added that the next step will be to look at remedies. He does not have a definite time frame, but within a month or two the city will start looking at options and costs. Kuntz distributed an updated version of Ordinance 05-2017 reflecting legisla- tive updates. After Council review, a further updated version will be reviewed at the October meeting. No written ambulance report was submitted. The written police report for the month of August was reviewed. The MCC and Public Works written re- ports were reviewed. Dell Beach added that HA Thompson is working on an es- timate to repair the sewer line from the Chuckwagon to the Girls Dorm. Pace will be out the week of Sept. 11 to clean sewer lines. City Auditor, Carla Steffen, pre- sented the 2017 audit proposal from Wosepka Accounting. Slauter made the motion to approve the proposal. Second by Tczap. Motion passed unanimously. Steffen presented $80,000 in general fund budget amend- ments for 2017. Brannum made the motion to approve the amendments, second by Joyce. Motion passed unan- imously. The ND Cares Training Event will be held at the MCC on Oct. 5. Invi- tations are going out soon and every- one is welcome to attend. Steffen reminded the Council that the State is coming out this Friday to do a walk- through of the bathroom project. ' Clarence Sitter with TRMF pre- sented an update on the Bunkhouse Project. The plan is still to set all the buildings, but they won't hook up more than the 212 units until the lagoon ca- pacities are met. TRMF would like to get a Flex PACE loan through the Bank of ND, but the local community must contribute to the interest buydown. TRMF is asking the City and County to share in the local contribution equally. The City share would be $40,590 over 15 years. They would like an answer at the October Council Meeting. Pay- ments wouldn't start until 2018. TRMF CEO, Randy Hatzenbuhler, added that TRMF has successfully used PACE loans twice in the past and the City was supportive. PACE allows TRMF to get a much lower interest rate on larger projects. Joyce made the motion to approve the 2nd Reading of Ordinance 03-2017 noting the changes to the definition of "community cat". Second by Tczap. Motion passed unanimously. Dell Beach presented estimates on cleaning out 3 separate sections of the drainage ditch. Corneil would like Cor- dova Construction to do the section by the new Berg home because they had done the dirt work in that area and re- moved the "bee hive". Slauter added that the City does not have an ease- ment for the section that is on TRMF property and something formal should be developed moving forward. Beach added that if the City pays $2,100 to hire excavators to clean the silt dam and drainage ditch on TRNP propery, TRNP would haul it out. Beach had only received estimates from one con- tractor for each of the 3 sections. Slauter thinks it is best practice to get more than one estimate for the October meeting. Joyce asked if TRMF still wants the culverts on the hill where the cable tv equipment was located. Slauter said it will be looked at. Corneil called a recess at 9:16 p.m. The meet- ing reconvened at 9:30 p.m. Corneil stated that TRNP and Dell Beach had already met on the $2,100 price for the TRNP clean-out so he would like to au- thorize Beach to move ahead with cleaning that section. Slauter made the motion to accept the $2,100 proposal for the TRNP section. Second by Joyce. Motion passed unanimously. A Gaming Site Authorization from the Bismarck Cancer Center Founda- tion to sponsor gaming at the Roughrider Hotel Banquet Room on Oct. 21, was reviewed. Kuntz stated she had no concerns. Joyce made the motion to approve the Gaming Site Au- thorization, second by Brannum. Mo- tion passed unanimously. A letter from Inn Connors resigning from the Zoning Commission, was re- viewed. Corneil thanked Connors for his service. Doug Ellison and Chuck Bokinskie are interesting in completing Connors' term which is through March, 2018. Slauter stated it is good to have 2 worthy individuals interested in the position. Because Ellison had ex- pressed interest first, Slauter made the motion to accept Connor's resignation and appoint Doug Ellison as of Oct. 1, 2017. Per NDCC 40-14-04 a City Assessor needs to be appointed at the first meet- ing of the city council in September of each odd-numbered year. Slauter made the motion to re-appoint Stacey Swanson. Second by Brannum. Mo- tion passed unanimously. Joye made the motion to approve the financials. Second by Tczap. With all ayes the following financials were approved. 2805 CORDOVA CONSTRUCTION 2677.00 2806 DAKOTA PUMP & CONTROL, Inc. 1645.00 2807 NORTH DAKOTA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH 173.24 2808 ONE CALL CONCEPTS 23.30 2809 SOUTHWEST WATER AUTHORITY 19056.26 2810 THEODORE ROOSEVELT MEDORA FDTN 18500.00 281'1 WASTE MANANGEMENT291.56 5146 ASSOCIATED SUPPLY Co INC. 468.56 5147 BAYLI KRANCE 100.00 5148 BRAUN DISTRIBUTING 36.40 5149 HAWKINS, INC. 410.17 5150 JOSIAH ORLUCK 100.00 5151 KOBI ALLEN 100.00 5152 MIDSTATE TELEPHONE COMPANY 32.35 5153 MILLER, BRANDON, 100.00 5154 REBEKA PADILLA 87.50 16006 ALLEGIANT EMERGENCY SERVICES, INC. 789.30 16007 APEX Engineering Group 2244.00 16008 BERGEn ELECTRIC, INC. 218.93 16009 BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER 458.28 16010 CARLA STEFFEN 49.02 16011 CHILLER SYSTEMS, INC 746.26 16012 CORDOVA CONSTRUCTION 2790.00 16013 D F LIGHTING CO 688.55 16014 DAKOTA DUST-TEX, INC. 159.35 16015 DAKOTA PUMP & CONTROL, Inc. 470.00 16016 DAKOTA SPORTS 95.00 16017 DICKINSON TIRE, INC. 25.00 16018 FARMERS ONION 1455.82 16019 Foremost Insurance Company/Grand Rapids 562.00 16020 HIGHLANDS ENGINEERING & SURVEYING, PLLC 7680.00 16021 ITD 40.65 16022 JAMES J.

' Corneil thanked Councilmen Brannum and Joyce for hosing down the streets with the firetruck. He also thanked Council- man Tczap for assisting the Police Dept. this summer. Steffen reviewed the preliminary revenue and expense budgets for the year 2018. YTD cash fund balances and 2010 year-end cash balances were reviewed to show the increase to re- serves over the past 6 years. Steffen added that most of the sales tax rev- enue for 2017 as well as oil distribution tax, will be disbursed to the City in Sep- tember-December. Fund balances can be reviewed again in January of 2018 and adjustments to the budget can be made. Rate increases for all utilities will be looked at in December. Infrastruc- ture expenses have been budgeted out of the 2% sales tax fund. No expenses are budgeted out of the V~% sales tax fund. Steffen presented the estimated tax calculation with a zero- increase mill of 28.2 which will generate approxi- mately $53,297 in general tax revenue. Several budget items were reviewed in- cluding repairs to the pool deck with grading around the pool and tennis court and basketball court repairs. Joyce stated it is fine to leave those items in the budget, but they may have to be looked at again once we find out what work will need to be done to the lagoons. Upon review of the MCC budget, Slauter stated that community center projects need to be looked at and he thinks what is budgeted is nec- essary. No estimates for re-siding the MCC have been received and 1 esti- mate for cement work around the MCC was received. Joyce recommended holding off on that project for now and look at doing re-siding and cement work at the same time. There was discus- sion on changing all the street lights over to LED. $15,000 was added to the street light budget. The Police Dept. re- quested $75,000 for a new fully equipped pick-up. After discussion, it was the consensus to lower that budget item to $50,000. Councilman Tczap left the meeting at 10:15 p.m. Lagoon ca- pacity upgrades will not be in the budget. City will have to make amend- ments once estimates and funding op- tions are received. Mary Griffin added that the City Shop needs to be stained. Corneil responded that a new roof on the shop is the first priority. 2018 an- nual salary increase to full-time em- ployees will be $3,000. Permanent PT Employee will receive 50 cent/hour raise. Slauter made the motion to ap- prove the 2017 Preliminary Budget. Second by Joyce. Motion passed unanimously. Corneil read the announcements. Slauter thanked Steffen and Dept. Heads for their work compiling the data for the preliminary budget. ,There being no other business, Brannum motioned to adjourn. With no objection, meeting was adjourned at 11:12 p.m. Attest: Todd Corneil, Mayor Attest:Carla Steffen, City Auditor (September 14) Notice Zoning Hearing Notice The Golden Valley County Zoning Board will hold a public hearing on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. in the Commissioner's Room at the C0urthouse for the following busi- NeW Business Steiner, Michael Request a 3 Acre Tract in SE1/4 SEC 29-137-104 Parcel # 00578000 be rezoned from Agricultural to Commercial for the pur- pose of Operating a gunsmith business.
