New City Hall Well
Mayor Allen contacted Northland Drilling and Blue Water Wells concerning a new well for the City Hall building. Blue Water Wells responded and said a new well would have to be put in the southeast part of the property as the well has to be 50 feet from the septic system.
Allen proposed to the council to put a small addition on the back of the existing building for the well and to also accommodate more storage area as it is badly needed. Council discussed acquiring building quotes so the City can make a plan going forward and budgeting for the project for 2022.
Council approved a motion to put together a plan with measurements and quotes on building the addition.

• Approved a motion for a $100 donation to the Initiative Foundation;
• Tabled the rain gutter project for City Hall until the addition is completed;
• Learned the calcium chloride treatment has been completed on the roads;
• Will discuss the 2022 City budget at the September 7 council meeting.
