Council works quickly through short meeting
By Kim Edward Adams

The Jesup City Council ran through a short agenda in just 20 minutes at their Oct. 3 regular meeting. They approved the Halloween bonfire at the Dairy Kone and an Urban Renewal Plan application for a residence being constructed by Caleb Leiran at 945 Second Street.

The council spent an additional $3849 on the Emergency Services building, adding meeting room and kitchen circuits to the generator panel; and adding keypad locks to four doors.

Public Works Director Mike Fettkether’s report to the council included updates on the project. The building structure has been completely erected; the exterior skin of the building is underway; the roof structure is being applied; interior walls are being framed and subcontractors are beginning their portion of the project.

Other projects reported included progress on the Fourth, Fifth and Purdy Street Reconstruction Phase IV. The city is still waiting for the results of the Sanitary Sewer Flow Monitoring study and Plan of Action from McClure Engineering; several Community Service Day projects were discussed; the new additional to the Street Department Shop is nearly complete. McClure Engineering has finished the smoke testing of the sanitary sewer lines in portions of the city, and results are expected soon; sludge depths at the lagoon were measured and are well below recommended levels, so no action needs to be taken there.

Fettkether was scheduled to attend a pictometry class in Independence. Street and Water Department employees John Fratzke and James Masteller were scheduled for training in Cedar Rapids on local roads and safety.

A council workshop was scheduled for Monday, October 9 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss stop signs and the recently closed tree dump. The next regular council meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 17. All interested persons are invited to attend the 7 p.m. meeting in the council chambers of city hall.
