The only way you could collect was to serve a minimum of twenty years. The fire department has had a policy that allows partial retirement after ten years of service. The ambulance association put together a proposed new retirement poli- cy to present to the council. The new pol- icy would allow for a lower number of years required to collect a reduced amount of retirement. The council thought the policy would be more equitable. Council person Craig Jans told the council the new policy is patterned after the fire department poli- cy. Although the council agreed with the policy the matter was tabled until it can be checked by the League of Small Cities. John Madson told the council there was a problem with the roof leaking at the community center. He had Scott Schoborg look into the problem. Schoborg found a tarred joint that had opened and he f'Lxed it. He also recom- mended they reshingle the roof on the entry way portion of the building, before winter. The council approved the work to be done by Schoborg.
