Manhattan Beach Council April Highlights
Web posted May 17, 2022
(Editor’s note: The following article was written from the approved minutes of the Manhattan Beach City Council regular monthly meeting held April 5, 2022 as provided by the city.)
The regular monthly meeting of the Manhattan Beach City Council was held on Tuesday, April 5th, 2022 at the City Hall. Officers present included Mayor Paul Allen; Council members Barb Hanson-Wannebo, Rob Amundson, and Jean Amundson; and Clerk-Treasurer, Marlene Yurek. Also in attendance was Tim Bray, Crow Wing County Engineer.
Council approved the agenda with a few additions, as well as the March 1, 2022 minutes, and Clerk-Treasurer’s report including Crow Wing Power.
Clerk-Treasurer Marlene Yurek reported the TIF amount that had appeared on the Cash Control statement from last month was entered in the wrong category and has since been corrected. The TIF account is now at a $00.00 balance.
CSAH 66 Speed Limit
Tim Bray, Crow Wing County Highway Department Engineer, explained that CSAH 66 is signed incorrectly, dating back to a 1995 Speed Zoning Resolution. The zone between 2000 ft north of County Road 140 (now named Manhattan Point Blvd) to CSAH 1 is Statutory, but is currently posted 45 mph.
Bray said the sign on the southbound 45 mph zone near CSAH 1 will be removed and replaced with either End of Speed Limit or posted at 55 mph. The Minnesota Department of Transportation recently conducted field speed survey tests and indicated drivers are already driving 55mph on this segment of roadway, which Bray said supports the change. More Information regarding this is available upon request at the Manhattan Beach City Hall.
Quotes for the addition to City Hall were unavailable, and a quote from Blue Water Wells for the new well came to $11,736. Council approved moving forward with the new well at the quote amount.
Council considered moving Satchell Road was discussed as the center line of the road is not in the center and there was discussion on applying calcium chloride to the roads in Manhattan Beach. No action was taken on those two items. The summary budget was also discussed however no action was taken.
In other council action:
• Approved the purchase of a new flag for City Hall;
• Approved sending the renewal information to Manhattan Beach Lodge;
• Appointed Council member Rob Amundson to lead the ditch clean up effort on Saturday, April 23.
The next regular monthly meeting of the Manhattan Beach City Council will be held Tuesday, June 7 at City Hall.
