Mayor Tom Glas called yet another special meeting of the Alcester City Council to order at 5:00 p.m. with Councilman David Larsen, Councilman Dan Haeder, Councilwoman Melissa Kay, Councilwoman Darla Reppe, Councilwoman Linda Talbott and Alcester City Attorney Sam Nelson present with Alcester Councilman Lance Johnson absent.

Pledge Allegiance was called, Approval of Agenda was called with one change to move Agenda Item number 6 to after Agenda Item number 7.  The council approved the amended agenda.

Input was called with no response.

Street Update was called and thus began yet another discussion of reclamation.  After a discussion of the pro’s and con’s of a rent the machinery and do-it-yerself street reclamation by city employees and day laborers, it was decided it would be wiser to let someone in the business of street reclamation provide the machinery and labor to reclaim 17 blocks of city street by Full Depth Reclamation.

During this discussion of which dates were discussed that The Road Guy HAD to show-up on a specific date, the Fog Seal was going to be dispensed with because it’s $18K price tag would cause the bid to exceed the bid exempt statue (o-o-o-h), the surety bond was not forfeited ($3500.00) Really? A-n-d I do believe another extension was given to The Road Guys.  ANOTHER ONE?  A call for the motion!  The council moved to accept the Loiseau bid merged with The Road Guy.

A motion to wave Council pay for this meeting was made by Councilman Dan Haeder and seconded by Councilwoman Linda Talbott, no further discussion and the vote was 4 Aye; Councilman Haeder, Councilman Larsen, Councilwoman Reppe, and Councilwoman Talbott with one Nay vote Councilwoman Melissa Kay.
