Mantorville City Council McKean house demolition requested

Approved by Mantorville city council members, fireworks will again be launched off Goat Island at the 49th annual Marigold Days celebration in September. Lyle Hoaglund from the Mantorville Restoration Association asked permission to host the display from the city officials at their meeting June 9, 2014.

Hoaglund also asked people to think about ideas to make next year's Marigold Days celebration even more spectacular because it will be the festival's 50th anniversary.

In other business, council members learned that members of the Park Board and the Economic Development Authority (EDA) have approved the proposal for a dog park near the city water tower, on land owned by the city.

Cresta Melcher explained that $20,000 has been raised to build the first stage which includes fencing, signs, garbage cans, gravel for the parking lot and other items. The Dog Park Committee raised $5,000, the City of Kasson donated $5,000, and the EDA donated $10,000 of the sales tax money from Rochester to the project.

Council members are waiting for a response to a request sent to the Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) about demolishing the McKean house, also known as the Friends & Co building, on Highway 57 from the National Register of Historic Places. The wooden structure has been inspected and found to be irreparable. The owners would like to demolish the building.

Coming up: At their next meeting at 6:30 p.m. June 23 at city hall, the council will be asked to approve the plans for the city dog park.
