II. 2010 General Fund Budget - Review
Mareck explained issues that have come to the City’s attention regarding misinformation about a
Winsted business that is in the JOBZ program. McLeod County prepared property tax statements for
Winsted residents believing that the business was no longer in the JOBZ program, when in fact it is. As a
result, property tax statements will not have correct information on them. Mareck stated that he is
working with representatives from McLeod County to rectify the issue.
Mareck presented the revised 2010 General Fund Budget.
III. 320 Westgate Circle
Mareck presented the Engineer’s report, from Encompass Engineering Consultants, on the
structural integrity of the house at 320 Westgate Circle.
Mareck stated that he has invited the property owner to the next City Council meeting to discuss the
structural issues of his house.
Mareck reviewed the steps that the City can take if the property owner does not make improvements
to the house to make it structurally sound.
IV. Downtown Design Guidelines

Program asking them to detail how their project will meet the major principals set forth in the “Downtown
Design Guidelines” for the downtown area of Winsted.
