Special Meeting Minutes
August 20, 2014
A special meeting was held at the Elgin City Hall on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.    Notice of said meeting had been posted at three places, as prescribed by law.
Mayor Schmitt called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. and announced the location of the Open Meeting Act.  Council members present were Kenny Jochum, Jim Kittelson, Shirley Nissen and Don Mackel.
Also in attendance were City Clerk Vicki Miller, Michael Moser and Todd Heithoff.
The purpose of the special meeting was to discuss a pool study, a special designated permit and a building permit.
Michael Moser and Todd Heithoff met with the Council to discuss having a pool study done.
Mr. Moser explained that they had met with JEO and the committee felt pretty comfortable with them.   They then met with Dave Burback of Burback Aquatics and felt that maybe he was a little more knowledgeable about what Elgin could feasibly afford and would need.
Mr. Heithoff explained that to do a study of the existing pool, Mr. Burback would like to see the existing pool, when it was full of water and then again when it is empty.
The cost for a pool study from JEO was quoted as $2500.00 to $5000.00; the cost of a pool study from Burback Aquatics is $2,000.00.
Members of the pool committee are Michael Moser, Todd Heithoff, Bethany Miller, Duane Miller and Mike Schmitt.
Following the discussion, a motion was made by Jochum to hire Burback Aquatics to conduct a pool study for $2,000.00.  A second to the motion was made by Kittelson.   All members voted aye and the motion carried.
Mr. Heithoff explained that the special designated permit application was for the EKG’s tail gate party to be held on September 13, 2014.  The hours of the permit would be from 1:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m.  The tail gate will be held on the lot located at 100 Pine Street.
A motion was made by Mackel to approve the special designated permit application for the EKG tail gate party.  A second to the motion was made by Kittelson.  All members voted aye and the motion carried.
A building permit received from Elgin One Stop to extend the concreted area with a 20’ x 238’ addition on the north side.
After reviewing the permit, a motion was made by Kittelson to approve the permit.  A second to the motion was made by Jochum.  All members voted aye and the motion carried.
The budget workshop followed the special meeting.
There being no further business to come before the Elgin City Council, Mayor Schmitt declared the meeting adjourned.  The meeting ended at 8:00 p.m.
