Commissioners Comments and Concerns:  Were heard and appreciated

J & W Const – Gravel Bid Golf Course:  Wayne requested to be added to the agenda to ask why his bid did not get approved or looked at when his amount was the lowest amount before gravel was put in at the golf course lake.  A long discussion was heard on how the golf course lake grant was organized by volunteers other than the city, and that any donated funds were just being kept in our bank account as a nonexempt account.  The City never asked for bids and was not required to by state.

Temporary Alcoholic Special Event License for 212-79 LLC at 321 Ash Street:  Discussion was heard by the Commission and Public on getting a temporary alcoholic event license at 321 Ash Street during the Sturgis rally.  Smeenk’s will apply for a special events license and be put on the next agenda for a public hearing.

Quote for City Hall Floor that was tabled from last meeting:  Foreman Parker talked with Steve Meguire from Marc after last meeting in March and had mentioned that he was pretty well filled up with appointments all the way through August already.  Parker and Finance Parrow went through the budget and found some areas they could get the money to do the floor this year but due to the time frame and the busy schedule in the fall and winter in city hall, it would be better to put money towards the roof this year and budget the floor into next year’s budget.  Although the Mayor said you would not believe the difference in the floor after it is done he agreed to wait. 

Avera health plan renewal agreement:  Motion by Commissioner Howie, 2nd by Commissioner Adams; to approve the Avera health plan renewal agreement effective May 1, 2015.  All in favor.  Motion carried. 

Spring clean-up dates:  Motion by Commissioner Adams, 2nd by Commissioner Howie, to approve to have free spring clean-up on May 16-22 and then June 6-12.  The City will come pick up items that our rubble site may take only at curb site.  Must call City hall  to be placed on list. If dates will not work, call for appointments with the City Foreman.  All in favor.  Motion carried. 

Water Technology Expo April 29-30 in Rapid City:  Motion by Commissioner Howie, 2nd by Commissioner Adams; to approve Foreman Parker to attend the water technology expo class in Rapid City on April 29-30.  All in favor.  Motion carried.
