Council scales down Fourth Avenue project

There will be no curb, gutter or widening of Fourth Avenue Southeast in Pierz.

On Tuesday, the council heard that the state will not be doing a project in the city in the near future and decided to have the street over-laid as it is.

The project will cost $21,500 and will be done this summer, along with other scheduled projects. The council cancelled the scheduled improvements on Edward Street.

In other business, the council:

• Heard a concern on if it was necessary on the construction of a green house that four inspections would be needed;

• Approved hiring part-time help for the golf course superintendent;

• Approved the regular insurance benefits for a full-time employee and agreed to reimburse him premium payments that he had paid since he became full-time;

• Approved proceeding with the construction of the shower/shelter building at the city park as soon as possible;

• Accepted a $25,000 commitment by the Pierz Lions Club to be used toward the shower/shelter;

• Heard that one additional camp site had been constructed at the city camp ground;

• Approved the Lions Club’s off site gambling request for Oktoberfest; and,

• Approved building permits for: Roger Bednar for a 10-foot by 10-foot addition; Rick Sczublewski to build a house with an attached garage and deck; and, Jim Kummet to add to the existing drive and patio.

The next regular meeting of the Pierz City Council will be held on June 10.
