Mantorville City Council Fire fighter pension raised; MRA water request

At their May 13, 2013, meeting, the Mantorville City Council approved raising the yearly payout on firefighters' pensions from $800 to $900.

The full pension payouts are for firefighters that have been on the force for 20 years and are at least 50 years old.

Council members took no action on a request by Lyle Hoaglund on behalf of the Mantorville Restoration Association to waive part or all of the connection fees for water and sewer to the Greek Revival-style house. The water connection fee is $614 and the sanitary sewer connection fee is $2,639.

Hoagland said the house has a new roof, has been repainted and has had repairs to its foundational timbers. The MRA would like to finish the inside of the home to include a bathroom and a kitchenette. The structure could be used as another tourist attraction and during events like Marigold Days.

The council listened to Duane Baldwin from the Kasson-Mantorville Habitat for Humanity Steering Committee. He said the group is now seeking a lot on which to build their 2014 home and applicants to help build and occupy the home.

The council approved a resolution adopting new fees for chickens and for dog kennels.

The fee for having chickens is a $25 initial permit fee. The new kennel fee is $250 with a $25 yearly renewal. Public hearings must be held to consider residents' input if a neighbor wishes to install a kennel. This process costs the city so the fee must be higher.

The next city council meeting has been changed to 6:30 p.m. May 23 at city hall. The meeting would normally be held on May 27 but Memorial Day falls on that date this year.
