The Mound City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 2, began with a request from a resident at 614 Main for the city to remove a charge from his water bill left by someone who had previously lived at that address. Following the request, the council agreed to add the discussion to the agenda for the meeting.

Don George, Kansas Wildlife and Parks Fisheries Biologist, spoke to the council and gave a report on fish stocked in the city lake and the number of anglers that had visited it over the last year. George noted that he wished local businesses would advocate fishing and suggested signs such as “Boat Parking available here” to help boost use of the city lake.

The council approved the minutes of the last meeting and then approved the warrant checking in the amount of $162,078.18.

 Codes Officer Jacob Bush asked the council their thoughts on allowing shipping containers and brief discussion followed. 

City Attorney Burton Harding asked the council to look over the nuisance codes he had written and let him know what they would like changed. 

Council then set the agenda for the meeting with two additions; one to discuss the residents request on the removal of charges and one to set a possible workshop or special meeting to review codes.

Council discussed and approved hiring two people for part-time summer help.

Mayor Wade Doering recommended appointments for the city stay the same and the council approved the mayor’s recommendation.

Public Works Superintendent John Bruns told the council a fence around the splash park would cost $14,800. The council approved the expenditure.

Council then discussed a site to use for reserving spots at the campgrounds at the city lake and Doering suggested the city use Firefly Reservations through an application called Camp It Kansas. Doering explained the app charges $3.50 per reservation so in order to get the minimum amount the city wants per spot they simply need to add the charge to the reservation amount and a brief discussion followed. Councilmember Lawrence Forbach moved to go with the reservation program and application and the motion was approved and then amended to add a $15 reservation fee.

Council then turned their attention to Resolution 23-04 on the grant for the sidewalk project. Discussions followed and the council opted not to act on the resolution (See related article in this edition)

In other business the council:

- Approved the renewal of a cereal malt beverage license for Casey’s.

- Agreed to remove a charge owed by a previous resident from a current account at the same address and attempt to collect it from the original debtor.

- Approved the purchase of 10 loads of rock at $150 per load.
