Committee Reports:  

City Manager/Liquor Store – Matt: The John Deere skid loader with attachments from Midwest Machinery arrived this week and the sales representative will be here Friday to train Matt, Mike and Pat on the features. Strack’s Tree Service completed tree trimming in Bingo Park and the Morrison County Sentence-To-Serve Program came and started the clean-up. There is still more to clean-up they will continue, weather permitting. The Liquor Store will need to purchase more replacement bar stools. The two furnaces in the utility closet will need to be replaced with a single new unit as they are outdated and no longer repairable. The two furnaces heat and cool the bathrooms and pull tab area, the rooftop unit takes care of the rest of the bar area.

Maintenance Supervisor Report – Patrick: Pat has been keeping busy with the Bingo Park clean-up and plowing. He will be having his On-Site Lineman training at the end January and Meter school coming up in February.

We had a water main break on MN Ave. near St. James Parish; the break was a result of ageing infrastructure. This pipe was installed in 1968; its life expectancy is 50-70 years. It is the third break of this type we have had in the last three years.
