It’s 2019, and I’m planning on rebooting this blog to provide some information to the public about City happenings. I’m going to try and keep it shorter but post more frequently. As always, I can most easily be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 507-593-8312; now onto City business.
January 14th City Council Meeting
This is technically our second meeting of the year, but our first regularly scheduled meeting. We will have our City Engineer come in with our Airport Specialist from Bolton and Menk to go over a proposal to conduct engineering, bidding, and construction observation for a taxiway extension project. This will be a good time for the Council to meet our new designated City Engineer, Cory Bienfang.
We will also be considering the approval of the first few items related to our Capital Lease program and evaluating a request to plow and perform tree maintenance for some of our local cemeteries.
We would love for you to attend the meeting, and if there is something you’d like to bring up to City Council, there is a time for public comment at the beginning of the meeting for items not on the agenda, and if you’d like to comment on something on the agenda, you can do that prior to that presentation.
2019 City Council Planning Retreat
On Saturday, January 19th from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M., City Council, along with various boards and commissions, and City Staff will be at the Le Sueur Fire Hall setting goals for 2019 and going over other various topics. The agenda for this retreat will likely go out early this week. The public is welcome to attend.
2019 Utility Rates and Community Center Rates
If you’ve received your “Le Sueur Living” newsletter, you’ll notice there is a section about the 2019 approved utility rates. Also, there is a section highlighting the 2019 Community Center rates. If at any time you have questions about these rates, how they compare to the previous year, or why these things are happening, don’t hesitate to reach out directly to me to go over these items. In future blog posts, I will go into detail for each of these areas to discuss what is going on.
I hope everyone had a great weekend, keep an eye on Facebook and the City’s website for updates. Also, congratulations to Shawn Kirby, Newell Krogmann, and Marvin Sullivan on winning their elections for the three open City Council seats.
I look forward to working with them, along with the other members of City Council.
