Old Business

Change Orders 

We discussed if we want to move forward with allowing Bolton & Menk to approve  change orders for a certain dollar amount. After discussion we decided to table this until  our February meeting. We would like some examples of what change orders would be.  

Repairs to Fire Hall 

Jake received a bid from Frandrup Masonry of $10,865.00 for repairs to the fire hall which will consist of pressure washing the block above and below grade, repair damaged  block behind down spouts, apply stick and peel waterproofing membrane from 1’ above  grade to and over footing, install drain tile and 12” pea rock and backfill creating a swale  from building to the east, pour splash blocks from down spouts to swale. He also asked them to give an amount for the remaining 20 feet of the north side of the building to the  west which was $3,100.00. Also if he finds any other issues he will take care of them  which he gave an estimate of $1,000. He thinks this will fix the leaking but since we  don’t know the hall was constructed if there is leaking after this work is done then it will  be coming from the roof. Timeline to get this done depends on the temperature but he  still could do it during the winter. After review of the bid between $14,000 and $15,000,  Friedrich made a motion to approve the bid of $10,865 plus $3,100 and possibly another  $1,000 from Frandrup Masonry, seconded by Carlock. All voting in favor, none  opposed, motion passed 5:0.

Gambling Permit for Waterford Warriors/R Bar 

R Bar asked for approval for the Waterford Warriors to conduct gambling such as bingo,  meat raffles and the $5 pull tabs at R Bar. They will submit their 10% to the City  annually by February 15th of each year.  

Motion to approve the Waterford Warriors to conduct gambling in the R Bar was made  by Friedrich, seconded by Price. All voting in favor, none opposed, motion passed 5:0.  

Dakota County Deputy 

Deputy Ryan was present and asked if we had anything to discuss. They like to patrol  around in the school in the morning and after school. He indicated if we see a big gap  when we don’t see them for a while just call them and tell them we haven’t seen them in  a while. If you see something, say something, call 911.

We are going to look into switching banks to Castle Rock Bank. They are local and they have been very good to us. Motion to approve the appointments of the committees for the year 2024 was made by Friedrich, seconded by Jacob. All voting in favor, none  opposed, motion passed 5:0.

Insurance Claim for City Buildings 

The League of Minnesota Cities sent us a list of what he examined and what he noted for  damages. He asked that we decide what we all want done. We need to get at least one  bid from a contractor. We will ask the contractor to check the garage by the water tower  to be sure they don’t see more damage. 

Historical Society Water 

They are now hooked up to water but they can’t use it because it has no place to go.  They are paying for water and asked why they have to pay for a service they don’t have.  We have a rule that if they have a curb stop they are being charged. That is the same  throughout the city. There are several other properties that pay for water that are not  using it. If we change it for one person, we have to change it for everyone.  

Bolton & Menk Sewer Update 

Matt noted that trees have been cut down. He will follow up on having the materials for  construction being moved to the holding pond site.  

It was asked about the dirt walls that were built where the holding ponds are going. They  built a pond on the lowest part of the property. The contractor chose that site and its on  them if anything happens. The resident in that area did approve of where it is and said it  does not have to be moved.  


Council Member Reports

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

It was noted that we need to get the high/low meter installed at the school. Marie will  talk to Bryce. 


Adjournment

Motion to adjourn the meeting made by Haro seconded by Carlock, the meeting was  adjourned at 8:00 p.m. All voting in favor, none opposed, motion passed 5:0.
