Karen Erickson Clerk-Treasurer City of Walnut Grove Special Session May 24, 2004 The council met in special session on the 24th day of May, 2004, at 7:30 P.M., in the coun- cil room. Present: Bob O'Donnell, Donald E. Johnson, David Hoyt, Todd Harrington, and Lee Steffen. Mayor O'Donnell presid at the meeting. Purpose of the meeting was to hear a presentation on health insurance for city employees. Steve Severson, Appletree, went over details of the health insurance policy he carries. However, he would not be the agent. The city would appoint an agent. This plan cames a high deductible, with the employees being involved in the cost. The city will get some estimates of what the policy would cost, but the employees would actually have to fill out applications to know for sure what the cost would be. The city will look at the estimates at their regular June meeting. The council then set a special meeting for June 11, at 6:00 PAl., to interview for the 30 hour per week police position. The police department was asked to contact people who need to clean up their yards while they are out patrolling and this should be an ongoing thing, not just a once a year project. Motion by Lee Steffen, sec- ond by Todd Harrington, to file a title transfer for the property at 432 Main Street to the City of Walnut Grove. The owners signed the necessary papers for this transfer. The city will pay the back taxes, liens, and attor- ney fees necessary for the trans- fer. The house will then be cleated from the property and the lot offered for sale on sealed bids.
