Goodenow moved, seconded by Ritter to approve the contract as amended 2, 3, and 4 and not have the five year requirement on it. Scott Riddlemoser On the first paragraph if you look at the maintenance paragraph and it calls out the paper trail. In the 1987 contract it talks about terminating this contract or would this be an addendum? Maes That is what I talked to Dennis about and he was going to change it. Stensrud I am not against the library but I am against the $500,000. I think we need to be fair with Tracy and Minneota.

Mather I have 911 dollars but I am saving them for a council. Ritter How many dollars are in that 911 fund? Mather I have enough to cover the council. It will be the money left over from not having any reimbursements. Ritter- How much is in the 911 fund? VanOverbeke There is about $411,000.

Goodenow moved, seconded by Ritter to create a septic loan pilot program. Ritter Is there a sunset on this if it works? Biren The loans are set up 8 to 10 years. Nelson This could help Yellow Medicine Watershed. There are three options, RCRCA, private bank and this. Florence was coming up against the MPCA and needed it. VanOverbeke This will be like a revolving loan fund. We are going to keep a close eye on it so we don't overspend. Fenske You mentioned the feedlot. Will it affect the feedlot inspection program? Biren No, not at first. After the first two year period we are going to reevaluate. All voted in favor.
