Minutes—December 2, 2020

Minutes of the Roland City Council

Regular Session

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

The Roland City Council met in regular session on Wednesday, December 2, 2020.  The meeting was held at 6:00 pm at the Roland Community Center with Mayor Andy Webb presiding via Zoom.  Council members present at roll call via Zoom: Jerry Balmer, Malissa Grimsley, and Kailah Schmitz.  Absent:  Riley Larson and Russ Neely.  Also present were City Clerk Jodi Meredith, Public Works Director Nathan Hovick via Zoom, Public Works Assistant Director Dalton Johnston via Zoom, and 3 visitors from the public via Zoom. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the public can access through Zoom.

It was moved by Schmitz and seconded by Balmer to approve the consent agenda which included Agenda, Minutes from the November 18, 2020 Council Meeting, and Claims for December 2, 2020 in the amount of $110,137.27.  All in favor, motion carried.

Public Input: None.

Department Head’s Reports were as follows

Public Works Director: The trees needing to be taken down have been and now trimming will be focused on.  Stumps are being measured and numbered to get quotes for removal.  Quotes are being asked for to grind and removal of the storm pile.  Jacobson Bear Creek Park clearing has been moving forward again.

City Clerk: None.

Deputy Christian asked about complaints of trailer parking on Alyssa Parkway and Lauren Lane.  The council would like a third letter sent and repeat offenders to be ticketed and then towed.

Nathan mentioned that a grey Dodge Dakota had tried to dump furniture at the brush site and when he saw employees left.  The pickup left town and came back empty, so it is most likely in a ditch somewhere.

CM Larson joined via Zoom at 6:16pm.

Brenda Dryer went through the draft Strategic Plan that came from the Strategic Planning Session.  There will be another meeting lined up to discuss how to move forward in more detail.

Consensus of the council is to move forward with dissolving the Pool Board and having the council in charge of the pool manager.

Mayor/Council Comments: Mayor Webb shared that at the Strategic Planning Session better communication to residents was discussed.  Story City and their Chamber send out formatted emails on a regular basis, maybe Roland should look into something to send out every other month or as needed.  Nathan shared that the annual snow ordinance reminder will be sent and bridge replacement with detour information will be included.  CM Grimsley would like to have the schools bussing information included so residents get the information at one time.

Public Input: None.

With no further business at this time, Balmer moved for adjournment of the meeting at 6:34 pm seconded by Grimsley.  All in favor, motion carried.  The next regular scheduled meeting will be Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at 6:00 pm at the Roland Community Center.
