2/6/2013 Holstein City Council approves several projects
The Holstein City Council approved proceeding with the rec center remodel project, an ICCBF (Ida County Community Betterment Foundation) grant application and purchasing a shower/eyewash station for the pool Monday.
David Doxtad of I&S Group presented a professional design services proposal for the Lohff-Schumann Memorial Community Center remodel project. After reviewing the proposal, the council approved signing it and proceeding with the remodel project.
Under the proposal, phase one would cost $2,500 and includes conducting a site visit, evaluating the rec center, providing an opinion of probable cost for the facility improvements ($143,780) necessary for grant applications and developing conceptual renderings of the project.
Phase two includes design and development processes and construction documents.
Resolution 2013-03 was approved supporting an ICCBF grant application to purchase and install steps at the pool and purchase a low lifeguard chair for the shallow end of the pool.
The council approved purchasing the existing safety shower/eyewash station at the pool from ACCO for $100.
Scout Brad Flogstad asked the council to serve as his fiscal agent for an ICCBF grant for an Eagle Scout project to add a warning siren for the city. Flogstad presented two proposals-add a stationary siren to cover the southern part of town for $22,500 or add a rotating siren that would cover most if not all of Holstein and some of the countryside for $27,069.
Flogstad said additional funds would be raised through various fund-raising events and that his goal is to raise enough funds for the rotating siren. The council agreed to serve as his fiscal agent for the grant application.
