Upon review, Ollig motioned to enter into the Employment Agreement with Aaron Reeves, Kegler seconded, unanimously carried.

Review of costs for Winstock slugging the Wastewater System was determined. Consensus of the Council was to waive the costs associated with the disposal, due to assumptions on part of the City and Winstock; and because of exposure and promotional value of the event. In reviewing information and the recommendation provided by Peopleservice, and with the current Policy on "third" party disposal at the system, Kegler motioned to inform Winstock that the $2,034.00 be waived, and with recommendation from the operators of the facility, future disposal will need to be found elsewhere since the City's system cannot accept that type of concentrated waste, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

Kegler motioned to adopt Ordinance No. 98-05, annexing land owned by Eugene & Marie, Jean and Mark Ochu, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

The request from Bailey's Tavern for a tailgate party was again dismissed. It was noted that Keg's Bar had held a similar event last year, and did not need a permit, therefore Baileys' will be allowed to hold the party, with the 3.2 dispensing done inside the building, and all participants will be required to be within the fenced in area. The event is to be held in January, 1999. Kegler motioned to have the City Attorney provide information related to this issue, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

Kegler motioned to pay the following bills:

Check Nos. 8709-8761 $ 443,851.47

Payroll Nos. 2820-2831 $9,204.60

Fire Dept. Nos. 3053-3060 $ 691.07

Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

Ollig motioned to accept the fire hall, allowing use by the fire department, and to withhold $8,000.00 for bituminous work in spring, and small incidental punch list items, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

Kegler motioned to adopt Resolution No. 299-11-17-98, adopting the Assessment Roll for Improvements to Winsted On The Lake in a total amount of $644,594.00, and certifying said assessments to the County Auditor, collection to begin in 1999, less paid assessments under the Developers Agreement, authorizing the Mayor and Clerk to sign, pending review from the City Attorney, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.

The Council accepted the resignation of Marsha Kutz as part time utility billing secretary. Ollig motioned to advertise to fill the part time position, Kegler seconded, unanimously carried.

Kegler motioned to adjourn, Ollig seconded, unanimously carried.
