Citizen’s Comments: none
Clem Benoit gave an update on the mall construction project. Thrifty White Drug Store is completed and the Building Inspector has inspected that site. There will be a final inspection by Thrifty White Pharmacy today at 1:00 p.m.
Discussion was held concerning the back entrance and the cement pad, downspouts and drainage. Mayor Harmoning has issue with bids coming in for the same information. The architectural drawings include more expansive pad and parking area and the council wants to just bid out the back door ramp. His opinion is to get new quotes for the back slab job and we may need an RFP so the bids will be apples to apples.
Knaack moved, seconded by Matzke, to stay with Clem Benoit as the mall project manager. MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY
Bertilrud moved, seconded by Knaack, to set the budget at $50,000 for the Underdahl Hardware remodeling project allowing $40,000 from the City and up to $10,000 from Underdahl’s for the rear entrance portion of the remodeling project and that if the project
