Since there are no blood related heirs, the state will be involved. The Contract for Deed holders Robert and Carol Peggin will need to sign off on the property. Once the house is demolished the City will sell the lot to cover the legal and clean up fees.
MOTION BY MCFARLIN (Underhill), 2ND BY PARKER (Lawson), to proceed with the probate.
Kim Sanford, residing at 805 1st Avenue West addressed some concerns she has regarding the property at 803 1st Avenue West. She is upset that no one has contacted her since the fire about the current situation. She has been speaking with Mike Wells and interested party in purchasing the property, and he addressed the chimney, and how felt was a safety hazard.
She spoke with Lalim regarding debris hanging over from the burnt house. She would like to be reassured that if there are any damages that come from the demolition of this home that their home will be covered and repaired. She would also like to be notified when the demolition would be taking place.
President Koeser responded to Mrs. Sanford and assured her that she will be notified and that they have similar concerns. The probate process could take a couple weeks. Koeser asked if Meiers, Lalim, and Chief Hanson would visit the site to see if there is an unsafe situation there right now and then go through the process.
Chris Mack a concerned neighbor informed the Commission that Harriet might have belongings inside of value that could be donated, auctions, or help pay for any costs to the city. He also suggested the possibility of closed bids for the lots. Kautzman informed Mr. Mack of the bid process.

President Koeser abstained from voting or influencing the decision due to his involvement with Kotana Communications.
Chief Hanson showed a Swiss phone to the Commission that gives capabilities that they cant get through other vendors. The advantage of this pager is personalities can be programmed into it. The pagers that are used for the department have to cover a wide range of personnel. With the Motorola to change the person who gets it, it needs to be taken in. With the Swiss Phone 50 different personalities can be programmed into it. The other advantage is its more durable and cheaper.

The employee poured beer from the tap into two go cups for two males.

I. Airport

1. MDU Transmission Line

2. Airport Improvement


Marburger is happy to report that there is a consensus on how to make the airport safer and handle more traffic. This project was initiated to develop the environmental clearance for completing improvements to the runway protection zone at the south end of Runway 11/29 an to the runway through reconstruction of the paved surface and replacing lighting and signs. Through the environmental assessment process, the project has recently evolved with some changes to the proposed scope of the project. It was identified that declared distances would not be as effective in providing a benefit to the airline without completing removal of the power line northwest of the airport.
A large power line is located northwest of the airport and is within the Terminal Approach Procedures Surface and is currently listed as an obstruction to aviation on all navigation charts. The power line relocation involves the removal of an obstruction to aviation and would compete well against other national projects. This project is proposed to be funded at the maximum federal participation rate currently at 95% and would relocate approximately 42,900 linear feet of power line away from the current airport surfaces.
MOTION BY STONER (Bogar), 2ND BY MCFARLIN (Underhill), to authorize the Amended Preferred Alternative for the Airport Projects.
