Discuss Mobile Home Park Specification for existing Parks.

City Attorney Martineck stated the current manager of Sunrise Mobile Home park wants to move in additional mobile homes to fill three vacant spots. The current ORD does not allow the homes to be that close so in order to allow this there would have to be some sort of conditional use permit.

Consensus was to send this to the Planning and Zoning Board.

CITY ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT

City Administrator Crawford reported clean up week went well. There were few places that did not sort their piles so they were left. Everyone pitched in and did a great job.

Please mow your lawns, several letters have gone out. When mowing please do not blow it in to the street as the grass clippings clog the storm drains and makes it a slippery surface for motorcycles and bicycles. Finance Director Klein mentioned the RZ Board, Visitor’s Committee and PZ Board have an opening on their boards.

City Engineer Peterson gave an update on the Construction Projects. We are having a public meeting next week for the 4dl St. and 6th St. NW-Phase Il, in preparation of the work starting in early June.

Commissioner Gulmon gave an update from the Finance Committee.

Commissioner Erickson stated hydrants will be flushed next week so run your COLD water to flush it out.
