Roll call was taken:  Mayor Koehler, Aldermen Meinen, Bauch, Reischel, Baribeau, Administrator Frion and Attorney Gierhart were all present.

All present gave pledge to the flag.

Lon Wilson, 1707 5th Avenue, would like the City to look at other opportunities for installing the water and sewer on the lots that he would like to build on behind his property.  It would be too cost prohibitive for him to have to install as required by City Code.

Alderman Meinen discussed moving the Council meetings to the fire hall to allow for more social distancing. Further discussion regarding this will take place at a future meeting.  Meinen was going to do some research on security cameras for the North Park to include in the 2021 budget.  New sprinkler heads were installed at the Golf Course.  Alderman Reischel thanked the Rod and Gun Club for the repairs that were made on the handicap fishing dock.  Reischel would also like to see the City discuss a truck route.

Mayor Koehler commended those that were involved in planning the events within the City this last weekend.  With this normally being the time of the fair, it was great to see people out and about.

Motion by Bauch to appoint Denise Michaelsen to the Library Board to fulfill Julie Anderson’s term.  Baribeau seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

Discussion took place regarding the previous CSM approval in Duncan Creek Estates and the allowance of having well and septic on 82nd Street.  John Mickesh, Burton Development, LLC. representative, stated that if approval of the plat was completed early enough in the fall, the intentions were to put the extension of water/sewer in off of the 3rd Avenue N. yet this year.

Motion by Meinen to approve the preliminary plat as presented for Duncan Creek Estates with the condition that lots 13-22 have an alternate septic system with a diverter valve installed.  Bauch seconded the motion.  Motion carried with Reischel voting nay.

Motion by Baribeau to accept the low bid from A-1 Excavating in the amount of $227,304.21 for the lead service line replacement project.  Meinen seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

Motion by Reischel to approve hiring Mike Sarauer for the Operator II/Lead position within the Street Department starting August 17th.  Bauch seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

Motion by Meinen to convene into closed session pursuant to Wis. Stat. §19.85(e) – “Deliberating or negotiating the purchasing of public properties, the investing of public funds, or conducting other specified public business, whenever competitive or bargaining reasons require a closed session.” (Sale of land) – Reischel seconded the motion.  Roll Call Vote was taken:  Meinen – aye, Bauch – aye, Baribeau – aye, Reischel – aye.  Motion carried.
