APPROVAL OF CONSENT AGENDA Motion Edwards, second Trebelhorn. Passed voice vote. NEW BUSINESS a. Winthrop Chamber request for Solar lights for the Chamber pots. Brenda Meyer spoke on behalf of the Winthrop Chamber and Christmas in the Country Committee. They would like to have solar string lights to place in the 1 8 pots the Chamber decorates. The strands would be approx. $13.99/each. Clerk Lorenz also stated that since they are LED, they would qualify for a CIP Fund rebate. Motion Trebelhorn, second Schmidt passed voice vote b. Formal request from Kurt Reetz to provide as needed assistance. Reetz is requesting a formal acknowledgement from the council to continue his consulting services on an as needed basis as Public Works Director Martin has achieved his licensure goals. Motion Trebelhorn, second Malheim passed voice vote. c. Boulevard Trees Council discussed replacement of boulevard trees in the construction area from the 2020 Street Project. As the old trees were removed and the boulevard can no longer accommodate trees, could we offer trees for placement in the yards of the residents. Council would like to approve up to $200 reimbursement to residents per tree that was lost due to the construction. Trees would have to be from an approved list provided by a local nursery and Dept. of Natural Resources. Trees must also be planted at the acceptable setback of 14 ft. from the street. Council will approve these purchases through 2022 and for future construction projects up to one year after completion of the project. Motion Edwards, second Malheim. Passed voice vote. d. Park Pavilion location options: four locations were brought to the council via the Park Committee and Lions Club. The Lions would like it to be located at the West end near the tank. Councilor Trebelhorn expressed concern with that location as it doesn’t offer much for shade and the pavilion would be up on a hill and the audience would be sitting looking uphill. Councilor Schmidt approves of the location and would like for the Lions to have a say as they have secured the majority of funds through donations. Clerk Lorenz updated the council as to the meeting with ISG (Bryan Petzel and Amanda Prosser) Amanda is the Parks Coordinator for ISG and is willing to come to a park committee meeting and assess the needs for our parks for the future. This would help the City not only regarding a better location for the pavilion but also how to properly maintain them moving forward to be more cost effective. Motion by Edwards to allocate up to $5000 for this service, second Malheim. Passed voice vote. Council would like the park committee to present a final location at the December council meeting. e. Carver street parking issues Councilor Machaiek stated that he has seen semis attempting to drive down Carver St. and again stated the difficulties in both parking and driving down Carver when vehicles are parked. There is limited room. Council discussed having staggered parking, vacating the east side of the street, having parallel parking as well as utilizing the City’s dirt lot for parking. Discussion regarding putting up a sign for parking in the municipal lot as well as if there are not any “no trucks” signs acquiring them. Council would like the Street Committee to meet and discuss the parking issue and report at the November meeting. Councilor Trebelhorn motioned if there are no truck signs currently that we purchase them second Edwards passed voice vote. REPORTS OF OFFICERS. BOARDS AND COMMITTEES d. ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT REPORT-Machaiek updated the council on the mnvIPA Meeting. f. PARK COMMITTEE-Met along with the Lions to scout out locations for the pavilion.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING PROPOSED MANAGEMENT OF INDIAN LAKE IN SIBLEY COUNTY, MINNNESOTA   NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that a public hearing will be held by the Department of Natural Resources on Thursday, December 16 at 6:00 p.m. at the Winthrop City Hall, 305 North Main Street, Winthrop, MN 55396, regarding the management and wildlife designation of Indian Lake in Sibley County (Sections 20-21, 28-29 of T113N, R29W); DOW inventory #72006600, pursuant to M.S. Section 97A.101.  All interested persons are invited to attend to present formal testimony or ask questions. Proposed management includes temporary water level drawdowns and motorized watercraft restrictions.   M.S. 97A.101 allows the restriction of surface use on Designated Wildlife Lakes after public input is taken.   These restrictions are intended to protect aquatic plants and would apply to watercraft use during the open water season. Restrictions would not apply to driving motorized vehicles on the ice during winter. Boat motors have been shown to negatively impact aquatic vegetation. Protecting aquatic plants is critical to maintaining wildlife habitat and water quality on Indian Lake. Protection can be achieved by restricting the use of motorized watercraft on the entire lake including electric trolling motors. The proposed restriction would protect breeding waterfowl and their broods, and minimize disturbances to feeding and resting wildlife during various life stages including both spring and fall migrations.  An overview presentation of the proposed management plan will be given at the hearing.  A copy of the plan is available from Steve Kittelson, Wildlife Lake Specialist, Madelia DNR Office, 35365 800th Avenue, Madelia, MN  56062 or steve.kittelson@state.mn.us.  Copies will also be available at the Winthrop City Hall and at the hearing.  The plan is posted on the MN DNR website at:   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/wildlife/shallowlakes/program-work.html  Written testimony is welcome and will be accepted at the Madelia DNR Office at the above address or comments may be submitted t steve.kittelson@state.mn.us until January 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm.   Upon advance request, information will be provided in alternative form.  Any person with such a request should contact Steve Kittelson at 507-578-8891, or steve.kittelson@state.mn.us, or the above address, no later than December 10, 2021. 5-6(af)c
