(S.D.)- Edgement City Council Accepts Member Resignation
(Edgemont)-The Edgemont City Council met Tuesday, June 18. The council had accepted Betty Patrick’s resignation from the city council at their last meeting, but has not named a replacement.
City Engineer Mike Koopman reported on various issues. He stated that he continues to coordinate with other cities’ engineers in addressing the vacant and neglected housing issues. The current building code guidelines state that a house can only sit empty for two years.
Barb Strozewski presented the Utility Committee report, giving updates on the park and island projects and the status of the sewage lift station area.
The city does not appear to own the land the lift station sits on and the long-term lease with the landowner has not been located. The utility committee recommended that the city pursue purchase of at least an acre of land so that they can control access to the lift station area. The area is currently being subleased for grazing by cattle.
A member of the public reminded the council that quotes must be obtained for fuel purchases.
The open council position was discussed. Chris Evans asked that the council delay action in order to advertise in the paper that the position is open and letters of interest should be delivered to city hall right away.
Koopman also reported that the lease contract with SHED (Southern Hills Economic Development) has been written. SHED will not sign the agreement until an asbestos report is received. Samples were sent to lab and results should be back in the next few days.
The next regular meeting is July 2 at City Hall at 7 p.m.
