November 24, 2014

Pursuant to due call and notice thereof, the City Council of Comfrey met in special session Monday, November 24, 2014 at 6:00 PM in the community center with all members present. Mayor Richter presided.

The purpose of this meeting was to discuss solid waste service options and to handle any other business brought before the council.

There has been numerous concerns voiced about the current solid waste service contractor but our options have been limited. The council was informed that the City was recently approached by Braun and Borth Sanitation as an option for a new service contractor. The current contract with Waste Management is set up to automatically renew unless they are notified in writing 90 days in advance of the renewal date which is February 28, 2015. On a motion by Arnsdorf, seconded by Evers and carried unanimously the council decided to give notice to Waste Management that the City would like to seek proposals for solid waste services from additional contractors.

Clerk Kelly also notified the council that the microphone for the community center is missing. A new microphone is needed as several events in the community center require one. After some discussion of different options and prices, a motion was made by Arnsdorf, seconded by Kastner and carried unanimously to purchase a new corded microphone with the price not to exceed $300.

The meeting adjourned on motion of Arnsdorf, seconded by Schmitt.
