The Council approved use of the grass at the Little League fields for the 100 TK-8th grade soccer players along with use of the restrooms. It was approved with a request they lock the restrooms at night when leaving due to vandalism.
Einen Grandi approached the Council over receiving sewer water and having no access when he needs it. In the past City pumps worked automatically but the system no longer works. He told of cooperation with City workers and proposed access to the gate and one building to operate the pumps at no cost to the city and he would notify workers every time he went in. Councilman Jerry Gerow wanted to “give him whatever the hell he wants.” Einen thought the agreement stated a 50/50 split on electricity and said he should get billed for a 15 hp pump for one day a week. Joy Markum moved and Gerow seconded and it was approved with notification with City workers. On another note, Einen noted it was good the pH is not down but it’s better and was always above 10. He explained high pH ties nutrients up and plants can’t pull nutrients. He stated his crop this year was better and a crop consultant commended it.
