Also the Dakota County  Treasurer check for the second half of the property taxes for the property for the holding  ponds was returned as they were already paid by the landowner so we need to reimburse  them to which she wrote two checks to the Endres Trust for payment which is not noted on our claims list.

Old Business

Fire District Bylaws 

Marie went to the Hampton council meeting on December 12th and was told that they had  their legal counsel review the JPA and Bylaws and didn’t see anything wrong with it so  they will not be doing anything further. We want it noted that by recommendation of legal counsel to revise the JPA, that we are not able to move forward with the assistance  from the Hampton City Council. 

New Business

Mining in Waterford Township 

Ann Lundstrom and Lisa Skluzacek talked about the proposed mining in Waterford  Township. They discussed the proposed mining and just wanted to make us aware of  what was happening.  

Bolton & Menk Sewer Update 

Matt noted that trees have been marked and will be removed very soon. The  commissioner hearing took place and it was agreed for the purchase of the land. The  materials were moved to the land acquired. The MPCA is requesting additional soil  borings. We need to do an additional 8 borings.

It was asked if the materials could be moved from Denise’s property to the property for  the holding ponds.

It was noted the tree on the Progressive Rail property has been taken care and the  chickens situation seems to be fixed.  

We received a bid from Frandrup Masonry to repair the back walls of the fire hall. He  gave an estimate of $10,365.00. However, since this was not on the agenda we cannot  act on this tonight and will add it to our January agenda.  

Clerk Haro noted that a claim was made with the League of Minnesota Cities for the hail  damage to our building. They will review the damage and get back to us but noted that  we will need 3 bids to move forward.  

Marie noted that Jim Heiman is still working on a bid for the remodel of the restrooms in  City Hall and is working with Gergen Plumbing and will get it to us soon.
