I must apologise here, I had made arrangements to have the meeting video-taped in my absence.  Unfortunately those arrangements fell through which I deeply regret and I have no video to present. 

KEY ISSUE – Agenda Item #5 Resignation of Dan Haeder as mayor.

The  February 6, 2023, meeting of the Alcester City Council was called to order by Mayor pro tem Lukas Driesen at 6:00 p.m. with Councilwoman Darla Reppe, Councilman Lukas Driesen, Councilman Kyle VandenHull present.  Attorney Austin Felts was present in the absence of City Attorney Sam Nelson  The council and gallery recited the Pledge of Allegiance.  I had heard Councilwoman Peeples was going to be taking part via telephone but since I see no reference in the minutes of the meeting as to her telephonic presence I must assume she was not present and there is a question as to quorum.

It is my understanding Mr. Haeder issued his written resignation on Friday, February 3, 2023, and dodged the meeting on February 6, 2023.  President of the Council Lukas Driesen, mayor-pro-tem read Mr. Haeder’s short resignation to the council, a motion to accept the resignation was made, seconded and approved by the council.

Items on the Agenda included item #3 approve the agenda, #4 approve the minutes of the January 9th and 23rd, 2023, meetings, #5 Resignation, #6 Public Input, #7 Wedding Fireworks (no pun intended) #8 Water/wastewater update, #9 Street update, #10 Alcester Golf Course, #11 Police Department Policy manual update, #12 Legal updates delivered by Attorney Austin Felts, #13 Ordinance 2023-02 Discretionary Taxation of Real Property, #14 Finance Office Lights quote, #15 City of Alcester Credit Card Limits, #16 – 1 More Bar Flooring quote, #17 Finance Office updates, #18 Executive Session and Item #19 Adjournment

Folks the agenda can be seen on the city website as well as the unapproved minutes of the February 6, 2023, meeting.

Folks of Alcester it is time, no it is past time the city live-streams the city council meetings!
