Council members for the city of Blue Mound met on Tuesday, July 5, for their regular monthly meeting. City Clerk Max Krull informed the council he would be meeting with the county treasurer on July 6 to discuss the city’s budget. Krull noted the city may need to consider the revenue neutral rate, and reminded the council that the county would not be distributing funds to each city within the county like they have done the previous few years. Due to this fact, the city may have to raise utilities, even if they don’t necessarily want to do so.

Council members discussed how this deficit may impact their budget, and what they could do with the budget without raising taxes. Krull told council members he would know more after his meeting with the treasurer.

Council members also discussed the issue of semi tractor trailers being parked on the side of the streets. Council member Paul Moeller noted he had looked into state laws, etc. The places the semis are parked are blocking views, right-of-ways, and damaging streets. Due to one semi having a cattle trailer attached, there have also been complaints on smells from the trailer. The council will contact the owners of the semis; and, hopefully find an easy solution.

The council also approved the following: minutes of the June 6 regular meeting; minutes of the June 16 special meeting; and minutes of the June 28 special meeting. Also approved was the payment of bills in the amount of $41,027.99.

During the special meeting held on June 16, the council approved the following: CMB special license for the Sunflower Saloon for July 2 and July 3; and the bid on a vac tank and trailer on Purple Wave with a max bid of $9,000 plus auction fees.

During the special meeting held on June 28, the council approved the following: to bid on a bucket truck on Purple Wave with a maximum bid of $18,000 plus auction fees.
