On roll call – all ayes.


Fire Chief Schutte read the 2016 Annual Report for the Camanche Volunteer Fire Department.


Interim Police Chief Lodge read the Police Department Monthly Report for January 2017.


Moved by Saxon, second by Metzger to approve a Resolution Setting Public Hearing on the Proposal for the Sale of Public Property to Cross Trails Properties, Inc. On roll call – all ayes.


Memorandum of Understanding – Girls Softball – between City of Clinton Parks and Recreation and City of Camanche. The City of Clinton will hire the umpires, take care of the infields. This will allow the Camanche girls to play in Camanche but it will be run by the Clinton Parks and Recreation. Kida stated the city leagues will trump the travel leagues. Judy Dell said a few years ago there were disagreements between the travel league and city league teams. The police were called. She said Park and Rec. passed something where city leagues get priority over travel leagues. There were some questions concerning the concession stand. Who is going to stock it and run it – the City of Clinton or the City of Camanche? Kida will check into it. Therefore, the council wanted this tabled until the next meeting.


Attorney Frey stated that PERB is moving forward in removing the city clerk from the bargaining unit.


Attorney Current commented on the new collective bargaining bill that was passed. In the original bill, if 30% of the unit is police and fire, there would be no change in the bargaining process. There were changes in the open records as to how to terminate and demote officers.


Kida reported that he is going over the contract and side letter – combining them. It should be ready for legal review by Friday. In early March, it should be ready for the committee to reconvene. The Masons are looking at April for the cornerstone ceremony.


Metzger would like a date right now for the handbook committee. Monday, March 13 at 5:30 PM is the date for the handbook committee to reconvene. She was wondering about the new company that we are working with for the health care insurance. Wruck wanted to know who decided on this company. Metzger stated it would have been nice to be in the loop on this. She didn’t know that Kida decided on this one. Wruck felt Andrew has over-stepped his boundary on this.


Metzger questioned the bill for trimming the bushes at the Library. Why didn’t Public Works employees do it? Jindrich stated she needed to contact the library on this. The board approves all of the library bills before they are submitted to her for payment. They asked “What if the council doesn’t want to approve it?” Jindrich stated the council can’t because the library board has authority to approve them.


Metzger noticed that mileage was paid when there was a squad available. Jindrich stated the officer will be told that in the future, if a squad is available, it needs to be used. She also asked Asst. Chief Lodge if the suicide training was general training. He said it was. She said that Speak Out Against Suicide can also provide that training. She was wondering if Mark could bring to the council the list of roads he would like to get fixed so they can give their input. She also has had people call concerning electric scooters on the streets.


Saxon wanted to congratulate Nate Thoms for finishing in 6th Place at the state wrestling tournament.


Wruck questioned whether Kida has followed up on the nuisance on 15th Place. He has concerns about the purchasing of tools. What happens to the old ones? He noticed that Hilgendorf had purchased an extension ladder. Hilgendorf stated theirs was broken and they kept the good portion of that one and use it when they have to go down into holes. Kida stated that he has talked with the leadership team about inventorying items.


Metzger was wondering if the council could get an email of the items discussed at the leadership meeting.


Lodge wanted to welcome Colin Reid to the department. He has had a meeting with him and likes the vision he has for the department.


Schutte said the State was at the department doing an inspection of the ambulance operations. There were no deficiencies. They are working on getting the things out of the old city hall. Tom Pruett has retired from the Fire Department after 25 years.


Bill Graves was wondering who Cross Trails Properties was that is buying the old city hall. Willis informed him that they are aware of the limitations of uses of the building with the well being right there.


Eddi Stearns questioned when the street light is going to be fixed at the corner of 9th Street and 7th Avenue. Jindrich stated it has been turned into MidAmerican.


At 6:48 P.M., the Mayor adjourned the regular meeting until March 7, 2017.
