Proposed Lengthening of Oak Street

Special City Council Meeting Minutes

City of Porter

Monday, September 20, 2010, 7:00 p.m.

 

Mayor Donald Verschelde called the special city council meeting to order.

 

Council members present were Eric Dybsetter, Kim Jelen, Darlene Moeller, Donald Verschelde, and Pat Vlaminck.

 

Also present was Bruce Tetrick, Jacob Tetrick, Dennis DeVos, and Larry Stoks.

 

The proposed lengthening of Oak Street to the west was discussed.  The street would provide access to the new grain leg and bin installed by the Porter Elevator, Inc.

 

Rough quotes have been received from Sterzinger Construction for 2 options as follows:

 

Option 1 about $1250:  no excavation, about 8 of graded gravel about 200 long

Option 2 about $4800:  30 excavation, fiber blanket layer, re-grade with gravel, about 200 long

 

A rough quote has also been received from Sterzinger Construction for an 8 PVC drainage pipe from the intersection of Oak and Prairie to the drainage ditch to the west.  This project was estimated at $8300.

 

Pat Vlaminck made a motion to cut the sod and add 8 to 10 of gravel to form a temporary road for this fall.  The new road will be centered on the current dirt track that intersects with Prairie Avenue.  It is understood that a future permanent road may move north or south based on a more accurate survey.  Darlene Moeller seconded the motion.  All were in favor with none opposed and the motion was carried.

 

The city council agrees that improvements to drainage will need to be made.  The City will install culverts (both east-west and north-south) under the intersection of Oak Street and Prairie Avenue when water and sewer maintenance is being done in the area.   

 

Pat Vlaminck made a motion to approve a building permit for a garage at the Kim Jelen residence, contingent upon the receipt of an official scale drawing of the project.  Darlene Moeller seconded the motion.  Kim Jelen abstained and all others were in favor, and the motion was carried. 

 

Darlene Moeller made a motion to approve a building permit for Ken and Linda Hennen to build a garage near the Quonset Hut, contingent upon the receipt of an official scale drawing of the project.  Pat Vlaminck seconded the motion.  All were in favor with none opposed, and the motion was carried.

 

A motion was made by Kim Jelen, seconded by Pat Vlaminck, to adjourn the meeting.  All were in favor with none opposed, and the motion was carried.
