City council receives bids for Industrial Park project
The Perham City Council met remotely on Monday, April 13, via Zoom due to the stay-at-home order put in place by Gov. Tim Walz for the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The council approved Mayor Tim Meehl's Arbor Day Proclamation and declared May 2 as Arbor Day in Perham.
- The bids for the Industrial Park project came in under the original estimated cost. Though the bids were lower than expected, the City of Perham will still be receiving the full $75,000 in MnDOT funding for the project through the Local Road Improvement Program. RL Larson Excavating Inc. was the lowest bidder with a bid of $2,244,395.46. Between the lower than estimated bid and full funding form, MNDOT assessments could be reduced by as much as 20%. The Assessment Hearing for the project is 5:15 May 11, in the council chambers, though that could change if the stay-at-home order is extended again. The council is working on the best approach to handling the situation if it arises.
- The council approved a resolution for the sale of property to Aleshire Park Townhomes Inc., which is part of the Roach family, for the Clearwater Second Addition. The sale is set to take place today, April 14. The purchase agreement between the city and Aleshire Park Townhomes was approved at the March council meeting. The reason for this second resolution for the sale of the property is for the closing agents use in the formal sale of property from the public entity.
- The council approved the renewal of 2 a.m. closing time liquor licenses for Zorbaz of Little Pine Lake and Pat Honer dba Sud's Tavern Inc.
- Household Hazardous Waste Day will be Wednesday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Works Garage.
