The City is currently at 70% of the snow and ice control budget for the year.  Utility bills were estimated this month due to the amount of snow we’ve received.  Accounts will be trued up the next billing cycle pending we don’t get an excessive amount of more snow.

Attorney Gustafson stated there will be a joint City Planning Commission and ETZ Committee meeting on March 4th to continue with the ETZ ordinance repeal process. 

The Council commended the Street Department on keeping the roads safe due to the extreme snow fall we’ve had.  Alderman Koehler thanked the community for assisting in keeping the hydrants clear of snow as well their sidewalks clear.

Mayor Steinmetz attended the Annual Chamber meeting on February 20th which included a tour at Glass Insulators.

Charter Nex representatives Rich Koehler and Adam Henneman discussed future plans for expansion on their existing property.  Koehler stated that nothing has been approved at this time, but the intention is to start out with the expansion of one big line and then adding an additional line each year for the next 5-7 years.  Discussion took place as to what their electrical needs would be for the expansion.  The preliminary outlook shows that the expansion would utilize the remainder of the City’s Electric Utility capacity.
