Logan utility rates, park board number to be back on city agenda Mary Darling Editor A decision on amending water and sewer rates will be back on the agenda again, after the Logan City Council failed to reach agreement on the issue at the June 18 meeting. The ordinance now in affect calls for an increase in cost per 1,000 gallons of water of one percent and then to evaluate the debt portion. The three possible

scenarios described at earlier council meetings included using a portion of a CD for water plant control updates, not using any of the CD to pay for the updates, or leaving water rates as required per the ordinance. Needed updates are estimated to cost in the neighborhood of $50,000. “Our residents obviously pay a lot for our water and the product we receive isn’t up to the acclaim like other cities,” said council

member Skip Johnson. “I don’t know how we get from here to there.” Johnson also asked if there were other areas of the city that would be a better place to have the wells then the same well field. “I would like to look at other options for wells,” Johnson said. City Administrator Angela Winther said you have to look at the infrastructure. “It’s very costly to get the

water from the wells to the city,” she said. Johnson cited the city water rates as one of the attractions of moving to a city. “I got feed-back that it will be a check point against us,” Johnson said. According to council member Nick Lefeber, many people ask why the water rates are so high. “When you look at the rates across the state, we are really not high in terms of the state,” Winther said.

CLASS OF 2014 FUNDRAISING AT PARADE The Lo-Ma Class of 2014 will have a booth set up in front of Do It Best Hardware before and during the Fourth of July Parade and will be selling Lo-Ma Koozies, pop and bottled water.

For more than 100 years, Logan has been the place to be on July 4th Mary Darling Editor “Logan must celebrate. It seems to be a popular demand that it should” That quote from the local paper of 1892 has remained true for more than 100 years. Logan does go all out for the Fourth of July. Back in 1892, the earliest written coverage that could be found, Logan celebrated the “old fashioned way.” Hometown talent furnished music, oratory and amusement, to a large crowd estimated at 6,000 to 7,000. “Without question it is the general consensus of the people in Harrison County that Logan is the place to spend Bill McKay and Dennis Michael had this entry in Logan’s 1957 SEE PLACE TO BE 4th of July parade. The sign in the middle of the pool reads, Page 2 “We’ve outgrown this one.” At the time, Logan did not have a pool.

PLACE TO BE: Logan 4th of July celebration FROM PAGE 1 a pleasant day the Fourth of July, which was made evident by the large number of persons on hand that day.” This quote from the paper of 1902, is still found to be true today, judging by the number of people that are usually on hand to take part in the holiday activities. In 1902, the street parade began at the courthouse and was headed by the band. The Logan Hose Team and Drill teams from the Lodges also took a prominent part in the parade. Basket dinners were the case back then with the park, courthouse yards, and grass-covered places in town full with families enjoying the meal. There were stands, merry-gorounds, cane racks and dance halls for the “young folks.” The fireworks display in 1902, was the “principle feature” for many. The paper said the display was the best that had ever been given here with many new features introduced. It was estimated there were at least 4,000 people in Logan joining the celebration. In 1910, the highlight of the parade was the 30 or 35 “decorated autos in line.” Mayor Bolter in his car headed the procession. “The difficulty of keeping to a walking gait told on the autos to a consider-

able extent, with several of them stopping and requiring cranking a time of two. The safety of these machines was well demonstrated in this parade as there was not a mishap,” newspaper accounts said. Those lucky enough to own automobiles gave rides and made $.25 for a trip around the glen. The merry-go-round took in $885 during the stay here. “The general manager kicked because they made him shut down during the exercises (games) and threatened to pull up his machine,” it was reported in the paper. “As always, Logan entertains guests royally on July 4, with a fine program,” 1934 headlines proclaimed. A full program of events were carried out with the 11:30 a.m. parade consisting of 35 floats headed by the Harrison County Band. There were ball games, free shows, sports and of course, “the usual accompaniment of noise.” After the evening program of music by the Logan band, and a patriotic address by Judge John A. Murray, a display of fireworks ended the day. In 1940, a well-played horseshoe match on the school grounds began the day. The parade was organized by the Junior Women’s Club and had upwards of 60 entries. One of the floats, an entry from the Iowa-Nebraska Power

and Light Company, Logan, won first place in the commercial section of the parade. This float also won first pace in the commercial section of the Missouri Valley parade, which was held first, and then was hurried to Logan by police escort in time to join the line-up here. Court Oviatt remembers the fireworks in the 1940’s being shot off on Fourth Avenue across from the Logan City Park. “There were firemen on top of the buildings along the street with wet gunny sacks to take care of any sparks,” Oviatt said. “I remember the celebration was usually just one day. The courthouse yard was just packed all over at noon with people having picnic lunches.” By 1950, a carnival was added to the park grounds and brought a large number of rides, concessions and shows. The fireworks display, which was reported to be larger than that of previous years, was moved to the high school athletic field grounds. The parade had many new entries and covered four or five blocks. Baseball games were on the schedule with Logan and Magnolia town teams scheduled to clash on the diamond. Alvin Dinkel remembers those baseball games and the events always on the Fourth. “I remember going to the parade, then the street

games, then two baseball games, and then the fireworks,” he said. Dinkel was one of the crew that helped with the fireworks and also helped construct the ground displays. “I remember Max Foutch, boy could he tie those lances. He could talk as fast as he could tie,” Dinkel said. In 1960, the S.O.S. Club was in charge of lining up the parade, with Marian Dunlap and Delores Pearsall acting as chairmen. John Stoner was in charge of the street sports assisted by Sam Strain, H.R. Glidden, Max Clark and Garland Hornbeck. LeRoy Bosworth, head of the “gigantic fireworks display,” promised a very different display from those in the past. He said practically all of the ground displays would be new items and very unusual with many of the aerial displays also news. Following the fireworks, Mal Dunn and his orchestra furnished music for the dance that was held in the park. July 4, 1970, was cool and cloudy much of the time, and allowed the large crowd to take part in many of the activities of the day in comfort, the paper reported. The Thomas shows and rides in the park were busy all during the four days they were in operation. “An overflow crowd watched the display of

fireworks,” that evening the paper said. People were scattered all through the hill area surrounding the athletic field as well as the field itself to view the display. A 24-team slow pitch softball tournament was in progress during the July 4, 1980 activities. Immanuel Lutheran Church showed the Johnny Cash film, “Gospel Road, on July 1. The carnival opened on July 3, for a four-day run on the Logan City Park grounds. A teen dance was held at the community building July 3, featuring the TNT combo. Festivities on July 4, opened with the traditional parade with the Logan Kiwanis Club now in charge of the line-up of entries. Kiwanis member Ron Greenwood began his lineup duties in 1972. “The fun part was watching the kids line up,” Greenwood said. “They were so excited.” He also remembers directing entries to line up. He said it was interesting explaining, “How to get into line and where to go to get into line,” for the parade. Street games were on schedule after the parade with peewee and cub baseball games on tap for the afternoon. Closing out the day was a huge fireworks display under the direction of LeRoy Bosworth and

crew. The Central Statesmen Barbershop Chorus of Omaha, presented a performance Sunday afternoon July 6, to close out the holiday activities. The 1990’s brought a few changes to the event. Blues Amusements was now the carnival of choice and expanded out into the street west of the city park. Water fights between area fire departments continued to draw a crowd to the competition held at the Harrison County Courthouse. In 1993, for one of the first times in the history of the parade, a persistent rain fell during much of the day on the Fourth, dampening the crowd assembled for the parade. Due to the rain, the fireworks were also postponed. The annual parade route was changed in 1999 to accommodate the expansion of the carnival, and continues to be one of the highlights of the celebration. July 4, 2012, and the tradition in Logan continues. The Logan Chamber of Commerce continues to plan a celebration full of activities for area residents to take part in during the holiday and hopes for a big crowd again at this year’s event. “Logan must celebrate. It seems to be a popular demand that it should.”

COUNCIL: Utility rates, park board numbers back on agenda FROM PAGE 1 the last council meeting it had been decided to go to a seven-member board. Lefeber also stated he didn’t see why a seven member board was needed. “I don’t see the purpose,” he said. “It was something the Park Board had requested,” Fetter said. According to Winther, council member Clarkhad suggested it at the last meeting due to gender equality laws that have to be met. Fetter said besides helping with the gender equality law, it also helps to have more people on the board to do the work. “But it doesn’t restrict volunteers,” Johnson replied.

According to Winther, all current Park Board members are requesting to stay on. She hasn’t had anyone else express an interest at this time. Council member Dennis Crum said he liked the idea of having seven members instead of five. “This way, we can keep the original Park Board members and add a couple others,” Crum said. The resolution to change from a five to seven member board will be put on the July 9, council agenda. Police Chief Elmer Smith asked the council if it was going to respond to the letter received from Lee Hieb regarding keeping chickens in town. “She is not eligible to be grandfathered in,” Smith

said. “The only thing you can do is change the ordinance.” This will also be put on the July 9, agenda. Smith also told the council the city had received permission to block off parking on Highway 127 in the area overlooking the football on July 3, for the fireworks. “We also will have someone at the gate to the field to eliminate fireworks,” Smith said. “The fine is $250 for having fireworks and no warnings will be given.” During citizens questions and comments, Don Blackford requested the council say the Pledge of Allegiance prior to the start of meetings. He also stated his concern that the public did not receive input on

the employee raises that were approved. Samantha Johnson voiced her concern that parliamentary procedures were not being followed at council meetings, and that items not on the agenda should not be discussed with the audience. Bob Dean inquired about the process someone interested in being on the council or Park Board needed to follow. “We just need something in writing why they are interested,” said Fetter. The council asked that anyone interested in filling the council vacancy or the Park Board contact the city and submit a letter with their name and why they are interested in either position. No action on the water

and sewer rates drew a response from Bill DeWitt. “I’ve heard you talk about the water rates again. It doesn’t make any sense. In my career I’ve had to move a few times and never looked at the water rates, but have driven around to see how the yards in a town are kept up and the parks.” Chris Dinkel stated as a citizen she felt the Park Board should go from five to seven members. “There was a lot of discussion at the last meeting for a seven member board. Also, the Park Board asked for it to be increased to seven,” Dinkel said. Other action items at the meeting included: •Approval of a beer permit for 4th Avenue Grill for a Beer Garden on July

4. •Approval of a Red Cross Shelter Agreement for use of the community center if ever needed as a shelter. •Approved a $1 an hour salary increase for Officer Kyle Graber who has taken on extra duties usually done by the sergeant of the police force. •Approved building permits for: Brad Hein, 301 S. Second Ave., bathroom remodel and fence; Scott Krajicek, 415 N. Second Ave., 32’ x 22’ garage; Scott Wohlers, 215 W. Third Street, 30’ x 28’ garage; Calvin Bertelsen, 312 N. Fourth Avenue, sidewalk; Mike Godden, privacy fence. All council members except Dee Clark were present for the meeting.

Perley’s Bits & Pieces By Jim Perley Logan Herald-Observer Columnist but he had other problems. His oxen were not entirely broken and one tended to lie down while the other tried to pull a plow or other farm implement. Mathew learned that the judicious use of a whip convinced the slacker to work. Mathew, his wife, and the extended family who moved in with them earned enough money to improve the farm and to buy some machinery. As was the custom, families gave lodging to wayfaring strangers. Six men driving hogs to Council Bluffs asked to stay the night in the tiny cabin. There was little room, but the family made them as comfortable as possible. The men slept on the floor next to the fireplace where a log slowly burned. Dis-

aster was averted when the fire burned too vigorously and began to spread from the fireplace. A man’s feet were so close to the fire that it woke him and the guests helped save the cabin. Years passed and the Halls were able to purchase three farms which they rented to others. They retired to Woodbine and enjoyed the fruits of their labor. Banks were still uncommon and considered unreliable, so settlers loaned money to each other. The Halls were no different. Mathew charged 10 percent and later 8 percent interest. A write for the Harrison County History noted that Mathew’s rates were low. The going rate was up to 50 percent.

Snow in My Garden in June? It is always something. Last week I got calls about the same issue in Dunlap and in Little Sioux (pretty well covering the county). Cucumbers and zucchini plants had lower leaves that were turning snowy white and then dying almost before your eyes. The diagnosis is a simple one, powdery mildew, but the treatment is a bit more complex. Powdery mildew is caused by a group of fungi that occurs across the United States. Powdery mildew on cucurbits (plants in the melon and cucumber family) is characterized as a superficial, powdery, grayishwhite growth on upper leaf surfaces, petioles, and even main stems of infected plants. Affected areas turn yellow then brown and die. The disease can overwinter on infected plant debris in and around the garden, but also can be carried into Iowa as spores on southerly winds, particu-



gality. He also bought two yolk of steers and two cows and paid $110 for 80 acres of land. Unfortunately, Hall had no more money. The first dollar he earned came from a book he sold. He spent $.25 on a sled and loaned it to a neighbor to go to the mill. A runner broke and Hall was once again without a vehicle. He needed to be creative, because such equipment was necessary to run a farm. A Scottsman, Robert Kirkwood also had no wa-gon, and the two men discussed how they might remedy their problem. They finally had an idea. They would make a wagon from a tree. They used crosscut saws to make eight wheels from the tree trunk and made an axle for them to turn on. They fashioned some lumber and their hard work yielded a wagon “fearfully and wonderfully made.” It was an odd-looking wa-gon, but probably as strong as any in Harrison County. Mathew Hall considered himself to be a rich man,

News from the Extension Service



Mathew Hall was born in 1819, and he was raised in England. His parents were poor and made their living through hard work for neighbors and others who would hire them. Like so many people of the time, Mathew soon learned the importance of money and hard work. He moved to an uncle’s farm when he was 12. Sometime around his 17th birthday, he took a job with Consett Iron Works. He was a horse keeper and onsetter in coal mine more than 100-feet underground. A year later, he found a job with a railroad and was soon promoted to engineer. He remained on the job until he met some Mormons who were looking for converts. The religion suited him and he took a 10-week trip to New Orleans in 1851. From there he traveled to Council Bluffs (Kanesville). Hall chose a claim on the Little Pigeon Creek because it already had an abandoned cabin. The ready-made home appealed to his sence of fru-

Life of a Pioneer


The day has finally arrived. I’m going to purchase one of those day-by-day pillboxes – although not for me – for our dogs. Our black lab and golden retriever, both getting close to celebrating their 10th birthdays, are on more medication than my boyfriend and me put together. Between taking medicine for sluggish thyroids, allergies and joint pain, they need to be enrolled in Medicare. They say people are spending nearly as much on their pets as they do their children. Although I’m not sure this is true, pets can definitely put a dent in the pocketbook, but we’ll do anything to keep them happy and healthy. Since I do most of my work from home, they have become my constant companions. Most of the time, the black lab is under my desk with his paw planted on my foot, while the retriever lies directly behind me. Makes it a little tough when I need to get up, but they never complaint if I happen to step on them. I can honestly say they are the best co-workers I’ve ever had. They’re always up ad ready to go when it’s break or snack time and when I’m on a roll, writing a story, they would never think to interrupt me with the latest gossip. On the down side, conversations are always one-sided and I’ve only had a couple of past co-workers who could slobber as much as my furry friends. Since most of the workday is spent with just the two of them, I’ve become one of those people who ask their pets’ questions or opinions and wait for an answer. As long as I keep passing out treats, they’ll wag their tails in agreement to everything I might say or do. How many co-workers can you find who are that easy to please? For the past five weeks, the retriever has been on restricted duty, since he tore the ligaments in his knee while chasing a dog on the other side of the fence. Just when he’s about to be fully recovered, the black lab developed swimmer’s ear and had to be knocked out to flush out the infection. Even so , they come to the office, just happy to be there and wanting to help out anyway they can. As my co-workers, they don’t have a lot of tasks to complete, but you can be sure those things that are asked of them, they do without complaint. If I’m having a bad day and snap a time or two, they never hold a grudge. They will gladly accommodate sharing my lunch and don’t mind that I’m in charge of the chip bag. If I have three cookies, to their one, they are still appreciative. I’m not saying I don’t miss my co-workers, because I do, but I have to wonder how much happier a work place might be if people took a couple lessons from a dog. My life has gone to the dogs – and I couldn’t be happier.

larly in warm, dry periods. New infections take from three to 10 days to show up, and on susceptible varieties, can dramatically cover the leaves giving the patch a frosted or snowy look. There are different powdery mildews on other home and garden plants, but today we focus on the cucurbits. In prolonged dry seasons and particularly when humidity is high, powdery mildew can cause premature leaf drop and premature fruit ripening. Powdery mildew tends to be especially problematic on late-planted cucurbits. Possible chemical treatments for cucurbit plants with powdery mildew include the following: • Dusting sulfur (powered elemental sulfur) that is applied directly to leaves and petioles. Do not apply sulfur when temperatures are above 85 degrees, and be careful using sulfur on muskmelons because some

Rich Pope Harrison County Extension Program Coordinator varieties can be damaged by the treatment. • Chlorthalonil – containing fungicides (according to label instructions). Look on the active ingredients statement on the label for “chlorthalonil” and make sure the product you use is labeled for use on garden vegetables. • Horticultural oil (like Sunspray ultra-fine) with baking soda. Add three teaspoons of horticultural oil (like Sunspray ultrafine) with baking soda. Add three teaspoons of horticultural oil to a gallon of water and then add three tablespoons of baking soda. Do not use this when temperatures are

above 90 degrees, or if you have treated with sulfur or to drought-stressed plants. The other (actually better) option, is to remember and then plant powdery mildew-resistant varieties next year (or even this year if you replant or put in plants for fall harvest). These varieties include “Regal” pickling cucumbers, “Burpless,” “Ashley,” “Pointsett8 76”, and “Dasheril” slicing cukes; and “Cordele” or “Ambrosia” cantaloupe.

IA officers make roads safe for fourth Most Americans may not realize it, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to alcoholimpaired driving crashes. That’s why this Fourth of July, beginning July 2 to July 8, officers in Iowa will join forces with Deputies of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Depart-ment and Logan Police Department,

that will be stepping up their enforcement efforts as part of the ongoing, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,” crackdown. During last year’s fourday sTEP wave, Iowa offi-

cers made 455 drunken driving contacts, and more than 12,700 traffic violations were reported by 225 agencies across the state.

Church New national system to deliver weather alerts to cell phones A new national program will allow some cell phone users to receive alerts for the most dangerous weather directly to their phones. Under the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system, the National Weather Service will begin issuing alerts for the most severe weather through participating wireless carriers directly to cell phones in designated areas. The alerts will be broadcast by cell towers. Cell phones within the selected area will immediately pick up the signal, provided they have the capability to receive the alerts. If someone travels into a threat area after an alert is first sent, a WEA-capable device will receive the message when the person enters the area. The availability of WEAs will be dependent on whether the carrier and cell phone are equipped to receive them. All major wireless carriers and hun-

dreds of smaller carriers are taking part in WEA on a voluntary basis. In Iowa, Verizon, U.S. Cellular and AT&T have reported they are ready to carry WEA alerts, however, other cellular carriers may be ready. People should check with their cellular carriers to find out if WEA alerts are available in their area and whether their cell phone is capable of receiving the alerts. The WEA system is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Commercial Mobile Alert System.

PUBLIC NOTICE HARRISON COUNTY LANDFILL COMMISSION MEETING MINUTES JUNE 13, 2012 The H.C.L.C. regular meeting was called to order at 7:03 p.m., June 13, 2012, by Vice-Chairman S. Struble. Roll call showed Representatives: J. Herman, K. Breyfogle, C. Chlupacek, P. Marshall, and Solid Waste Mgr. D. Barry. Also in attendance was R. Holthe, Logan. Representative R. Fetter arrived shortly after the meeting started. There were no changes to the present agenda. K. Breyfogle motioned to accept the agenda. C. Chlupacek seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. There were no changes to the May, 2012 meeting minutes and directors memos. P. Marshall motioned to approve the meeting minutes and directors memos. C. Chlupacek seconded the motion. All yeas. Motion passed. Dan reviewed the budget and claims: The CDs were reviewed with no changes from last month. The May sales, along with the checking and savings accounts were reviewed. K. Breyfogle wanted a quick reminder, what the retained savings account was, and what/how the IDNR allowed those funds to be spent. The Budget was reviewed, with May being the 11th month of the Fiscal Year. All group totals were looked at, with Dan explaining how he feels the numbers will end up for the fiscal year. The representatives reviewed the claims that were being presented. Dan went through each line-item of the claims. After general discussion, P. Marshall motioned to approve the budget and pay the claims. C. Chlupacek seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion passed. Item #5 was to review and vote on a Leachate Disposal Agreement with the City of Wodbine. This is an update/renewal agreement, which the Landfill and City of Woodbine has had for several years. J. Herman asked Dan for a quick review of what exactly “leachate” is. Upon reviewing leachate, and how we contain it, Dan noted that the amount of leachate in the contract is acceptable, but Woodbine is requesting an increase from $0.01/gallon to $0.15/gallon for disposal. As there has been no increase for 15 years, the Representatives felt this request was reasonable. R. Fetter motioned to accept and sign the

Leachate Disposal Agreement as presented. K. Breyfogle seconded the motion. City of Woodbine Representatives abstained from voting action. All yeas. Motion passed. P. Marshall told Dan about two (2) items that may hinder the Landfill from delivering leachate to the Woodbine lagoons. Paul and Dan will keep in contact about these items. Dan also told the representatives that he has started talking with the City of Logan to see if they are interested in working with the landfill in disposing of leachate at their Lagoons. Item #6 was for questions/concerns/misc. informa-tion that the representatives or Dan had: The representatives had no questions or concerns at this time and Dan had nothing to discuss. The month-end reports: Manager’s Activities Report, Membership Assessment Report, Landfill Activity Report, Drop Box Recycling Reports, Misc. Information/News Articles were looked at.

LOGAN CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS JUNE 18, 2012 At 7:10 P.M. Mayor Fetter called the meeting to order. Those present were Council Members Johnson, Crum and Lefeber. Council Member Clark was absent. Mayor Fetter asked if there were any additions or deletions to the agenda. The City Clerk added a building permit to the consent agenda for Mike Godden for a privacy fence. Motion was made by Crum and seconded by Johnson to approve the agenda with the addition of a building permit for Mike Godden for a privacy fence. 3 ayes. Item 4 was to approve the consent agenda which consisted of the minutes from the 5-29-12 special council meeting and 6-4-12 council meeting, set a date of Monday, July 9th, 2012, for a regular council meeting, approve the claims register and approve building permits for Brad Hein, 301 S. 2nd Ave., bathroom remodel and fence; Scott Krajicek, 415 N. 2nd Ave., 32’ x 22’ garage; Scott Wohlers, 215 W. 3rd St., 30’ x 28’ garage; Calvin Bertelsen, 312 N.

4th Ave., sidewalk; Mike Godden, 322 N. 4th Ave., privacy fence. Motion was made by Crum and seconded by Johnson to approve the consent agenda. 3 ayes. Next on the agenda was to approve an outdoor beer permit for 4th Ave. Grill for a beer garden on July 4th, 2012. The license has been approved by Alcoholic Beverages. Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Lefeber to approve an outdoor beer permit for 4th Ave. Grill for a beer garden on July 4th, 2012. 3 ayes. Item 6 on the agenda was to approve the first reading of Ordinance 440: An ordinance to amend Chapter 92 Water Rates. Mayor Fetter went over the three different scenarios that had been discussed at previous meetings. The scenarios were to use part of a CD for new controls at the water plant, not use any of the CD’s or leave the ordinance as is and increase the rates by 1%. Johnson stated that water and sewer rates are high in Logan, and the product the citizens receive may not be to the acclaim that other cities aspire to. Mayor Fetter stated that water quality has gotten better with the continuous maintenance that’s done on the water system. Johnson would like to explore options of getting better quality water he stated. He stated that he wants the rates to remain the same for now. Mayor Fetter stated that whatever is done, the ordinance would have to be rewritten. Crum stated that he would like to see the 1% increase in the rates. Johnson stated that feedback that he has received when talking to people is that water is a leading indicator for the attractiveness of a community. The quality of water and how much it costs are looked at by people who are considering moving to a community. He stated that the water in Logan is a check mark against us, and he would like to improve that attractiveness. He would like to exhaust all efforts to get better water he stated. Mayor Fetter stated that the city is trying to keep from having to borrow money and put some away in a rainy day fund. He also stated that the city would not build a million dollar rainy day fund. Johnson appreciates the fact that we have

safe drinking water he stated, but he feels that the city has met the minimum bar and nobody is excited about the water in this town. Mayor Fetter urged that the council do something with the rates because this is the fourth time this has been on the agenda. Lefeber asked why water rates are so high. The City Clerk stated that if you look at rates across the state, they are not high but more in the medium range. Johnson reiterated that if nothing is done, the water rates would remain the same. Mayor Fetter stated that Iowa Rural Water did a study and laid out the rates. To be a water customer, you pay $19.08 per month which covers your first thousand gallons, service to your house, chemicals, electricity, water wages and basic water usage. Mayor Fetter asked what the council would like to do with this item, and they decided to hold off with a decision for now and no action was taken. Next on the agenda was to approve the first reading of Ordinance 441: An ordinance to amend Chapter 99 Sewer Rates. The council decided to hold off with a decision on this item so they could pass the water and sewer rates at the same time. No action was taken. Item 8 on the agenda was to approve Resolution 12-13: A resolution to certify certain costs for collection with taxes. These costs are for mowing at abandoned houses, water, sewer and landfill. Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Crum to approve Resolution 12-13: A resolution to certify certain costs for collection with taxes. 3 ayes. Item 9 on the agenda was to approve a Red Cross Shelter Agreement with the American Red Cross for the Community Center. Red Cross Representative Sal Rinella attended the meeting and stated that at the present time there is only one shelter available in Harrison County in the event of a disaster. He stated that if the Red Cross would be using the community center as a shelter and it was rented out for an event, the Red Cross would go somewhere else during the event so as not to disrupt a planned event. They would not need any storage as cots and other items are stored at

the Rand Center in Mo. Valley. He also stated he dropped off an agreement with the Logan School to consider since the school has shower facilities. Motion was made by Lefeber and seconded by Crum to approve a Red Cross Shelter Agreement with the American Red Cross for the Community Center. 3 ayes. The next item on the agenda was to discuss appointing someone to fill the council vacancy. The Council has 40 days to appoint someone to fill the position. Within 14 days of appointing someone, the citizens can petition for a special election. The City Clerk has had a few inquiries but no official requests to be considered. An ad has been placed in the paper and posted. Item 11 was to approve the first reading of Ordinance 442: An ordinance amending Chapter 23: Park Board. The ordinance was written to change from a 5 member board to a 7 member board. It also staggers the terms of the board members with 3 seats expiring in 2015 and 4 seats expiring in 2017. If a seat is vacated before the end of the term, the new appointee would fill the remainder of that term, and they would have to be reappointed at the time that seat comes up. This way not all seats will be reappointed in any given year. An ad has been placed in the paper and posted. Johnson said he doesn’t see a need to change from 5 to 7 board members. Mayor Fetter stated that he thought at the last meeting that everyone had decided they wanted to go to a 7 member board. Lefeber stated that he didn’t get why 7 people were needed. Mayor Fetter stated that the request came from the park board. The Clerk stated that it was Clark that suggested putting 7 members on the park board at the last meeting so that no one would have to be kicked off of the board because of the gender equality law. Lefeber asked if the reason they wanted to add 2 more members to the park board was because of the gender equality law. Mayor Fetter stated that that’s part of the reason. Having two more people to help with projects would be beneficial. Johnson stated that it didn’t restrict the volunteers, only the board. Mayor Fetter stated that they do projects some-

times that they don’t ask for volunteers to help with. Lefeber asked if there has been any interest in anyone wanting to be on the park board. The Clerk said that all of the current park board members said that they plan to submit a letter requesting to stay on the board. She has not had any new people submit anything to her yet. Lefeber asked if there was an ad put in the paper and where it was, he had three people ask him about it. The Clerk told him that it was in the legal section. Crum stated that he would like to see 7 members on the park board instead of 5. The Clerk reiterated that Clark indicated at the last meeting that she would like to have 7 people on the park board. Johnson stated that recent conversations with her didn’t coincide with that so he was surprised to hear that. Lefeber stated that he didn’t really see the purpose of 7 people. He said sometimes you can have too many people and too many ideas. Crum stated that if we keep 5 instead of going with 7, we won’t be able to keep the original park board members because we will have to put another guy on the board to make it gender equal. He would like to add two more members so the original members can be reappointed if they want to stay on. The council decided to wait until Clark attends a meeting so they can discuss it with her. No action taken. Item 12 on the agenda was to approve a $1.00 increase for Officer Graber for doing sergeant duties. Chief Smith stated that the sergeant position usually pays $1.00 more per hour. Duties of this position include making sure the monthly reports are in on time, taking care of the vehicles and weapons and making sure shifts are covered if someone is gone. Officer Graber would not be eligible for a sergeant’s position because he is on probation for one year, but he is going to do the work. His probation ends on Sept. 19, 2012. Lefeber stated that if he is doing the extra work, he deserves an extra dollar. Chief Smith stated that Graber was hired Sept. 19, 2011, and between school and FTO he has not seen a whole lot of Graber. He has also had 3 or 4 weeks of Army training. Chief Smith also stated that if he’s Continued on Page 11

Logan City Council Continued from Page 10 going to start doing the work, then he deserves the raise. He has supplied the police report once he stated. Chief Smith stated that when he comes back on the 25th of June, he will begin his duties. Mayor Fetter said the council could wait with the raise to see if he continues to do the work. Johnson stated that he is inclined to give it to him too. Chief Smith asked if there would be back pay for this. He was told that the raise would be effective when the council made the resolution. Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Lefeber to approve a $1.00 increase for Officer Graber for doing Sergeant duties. 3 ayes. Item 13 was to discuss airing council meeting video on Logan’s local access channel. The clerk stated that there are about 230 households in Logan that have the local access channel. Johnson and Crum were disappointed that is was only 230. Mayor Fetter stated that we would still have it recorded and anyone could come to City Hall to view the meeting. Crum stated that we could try doing it for awhile. The clerk will get pricing to see the difference between having someone record the meetings and buying the equipment to record them ourselves is. Citizen’s questions/comments: Chief Smith asked if the council is going to respond to the letter that was written by the Hieb’s in regard to keeping their chickens. He stated they can’t grandfather in the chickens since they weren’t there

when the ordinance was established. They can’t get a variance since it is an ordinance and not a zoning issue. He stated he either has to write a ticket or the ordinance has to be changed. The council decided to put it on the next agenda. Don Blackford asked if council meetings could be opened with the Pledge of Allegiance. He also brought up that the public did not get a chance to give input when the city voted a 3% raise for themselves. He stated that his property taxes are going up again, streets and water pipes are in decline and now employees are getting a 3% raise. It should have been well thought out. He stated that it has already been done because the city has already voted for a raise, and he thinks in the future, the city should be smarter and have a pay raise freeze for 3 years. He stated that we need to get this city under control. He also stated that he was not saying a lot of the employees didn’t deserve it, but the police officers obviously do. He thinks it should have been thought out more. Mayor Fetter clarified that the raise that was approved did not include the council and the City Clerk clarified that the raise for city employees was 3% of a pool and not a straight 3% of each person’s salary. Samantha Johnson discussed Parliamentary Proced-ure with Mayor Fetter. She stated that since council meetings have not been run using proper procedures, the council’s ability to discuss among themselves to reach logical decisions and be productive has been inhibited because they have become somewhat chaotic. Her other comment was that the council, who are the elected people that we hold accountable for their decisions, are not allowed to speak about something that’s not on the agenda. She stated the City Clerk is engaging the audience at length with information, her opinions, her understanding or whatever it is, and Mrs. Johnson thinks that is out of line. If it’s not on the agenda, citizens can comment, and the council can put it on the next agenda, but nobody is supposed to be engaged in a conversation. Nikki Allen stated that council members are not to talk to each other during the meetings unless the public is able to hear their conversation. Gary Nordby stated that the shelter is ready to be used. Bob Dean asked what the process is for someone to apply for a park board position or the council position. The Mayor stated they need to submit their name and why they want to serve on the park board to City Hall. He also stated that the VFW and American Legion will be dedicating the monument at the courthouse on Sunday at 2:00 P.M. and he asked for the Mayor and Council to attend. Bill DeWitt stated that he has been to a lot of meetings recently where water rates have been discussed, and they were tabled again tonight. He commented that he has moved several times, and he has never gone to City Hall and asked what their water rates were before moving. When he looks at a new town, he drives around to see if people’s yards are kept up or not or he looks at parks and their condition he stated. Chris DeWitt asked if there is training for the council and if it is open to the public. She also stated that as a citizen, she thinks the park board should go to 7 people. She said there was a lot of discussion at the last meeting to go to a 7 member board, and two

council members stated tonight that they didn’t see why we should go to 7 members. DeWitt said that a very, very big reason for the council to approve changing the park board to 7 members is because a lot of citizens, who are interested and concerned, thought it would be a good idea to have a 7 member park board. Also, the park board asked for it to be increased to 7, and that is another very big reason for the council to consider it. Chamber update: Chris Hartwig stated they are still working on the 4th of July celebration plans.
