ABSENT: None. VISITORS: Daren Long. Mayor Gubler welcomed everyone and Director Prouse led the Pledge of Allegiance. A roll call was taken by Clerk West to open the meeting. CONSENT AGENDA: City Council Work Meeting and Regular Meeting Minutes of February 15, 2022 were reviewed. Council reviewed the finance reports for the period ending February 28, 2022 (41% of the fiscal year elapsed). The City had $2,218,037.87 in the bank and routine bills had been paid, "Exhibit A". Mayor Gubler entertained a motion. Council Member Thompson made a motion to approve the consent agenda as presented. Council President Geray seconded the motion. All in favor. Motion carried. ITEMS OF BUSINESS: General Water System Discussion—Mayor Gubler stated they had a meeting today at the water tank. He continued and stated the tank is full of water, but there are still some pin hole leaks that need to be fixed by the contractor. Mayor Gubler stated he has informed the contractor they will not receive their final payment until all the fixes are complete. Director Prouse said they tested it over 15 days and there was 1 inch of water loss due to the leaks. Mayor Gubler explained the membrane of the tank and the reason for the leaks. Council President Geray expressed frustration with the contractor and the length of time this project is taking for completion. Mayor Gubler stated it has been difficult to fix the leaks because they are too small to locate. Director Prouse did say the City is not allocating any additional funds and all expenses incurred to fix the problems are the responsibility of the contractor. Director Prouse stated the tank has passed the coliform test and the transmission line will need to be retested with Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) on site. Mayor Gubler stated the City is responsible for purchasing and installing a chain link fence around the new water tank that was not included in the contract. Mayor Gubler stated the City is divesting itself of the ditch water that runs through the City. He continued and stated Director Prouse has drafted a letter to all the ditch users throughout the City informing them that the City will no longer be involved with any management and maintenance of the irrigation water and ditches. Mayor Gubler explained the history of the ditches in the northern part of the City. Council President Geray asked if the ditch users are required to have liability insurance if mismanagement causes road or property damage in the City. Attorney Rawlings stated by statute they are already considered an unincorporated association and are not required to have insurance. If damage were to occur, it would be the individual ditch user that IONA CITY COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING—MARCH 15, 2022 would be responsible if the association does not have insurance. Discussion then shifted towards water conservation efforts pertaining to sprinkler schedules during the summer months. STAFF REPORTS: Clerk West reported she has secured an additional grant for the tennis court project in the amount of$1,500 and has applied for others that are still under review. She also reported that she met with Hamlet Homes earlier in the day and they have offered to demolish and repour the City Building front steps and update the main entrance foyer as a community service to the City. Clerk West shared their ideas and sketched rendition of the updated space. She continued and stated Hamlet Homes is hoping to complete all of this by the beginning of May. Clerk West then requested feedback from the Council on the colors and design. Council Members agreed on gray walls for the update. Council Member Wadsworth stated he likes the idea of the electronic screen on the wall to display City events and other important announcements. Mayor Gubler voiced his concern with the screen and the furniture because in the past it created a lounge type area for other people using the building. Clerk West agreed with his concerns, but also sees the value of utilizing a digital system for announcements within the City Building. Council Members agreed to the digital screen. Council Member Wadsworth and Council President Geray stated nothing to report. Council Member Thompson stated he and James West are organizing the 5k/10k run again at Iona Day this year. He asked if anyone had any suggestions or requests to change the route. Council President Geray suggested to keep it the same as last year. Council Member Mann stated nothing to report. Deputy Randall reported a short list of reports for the month of February. He continued and stated that door to door salesmen are back out and he has spoken with a few and warned them that permits are required in the City. Deputy Randall also stated there have been anonymous complaints about barking dogs and he has spoken to the owners. SUGGESTED AGENDA ITEMS: No response.
