DeWitt hires attorney in dispute


Resolutions approving lien releases were passed. The remaining balance of $3,741 for the Silver Valley sewer connection fee for the Cressey subdivision was paid in full releasing the lien. The sewer project was done in 1993-94 and the sewer fee was enacted in 1995. An unpaid utility balance of $269 at 1244 Circle Drive was also paid in full resulting in a lien release.

An invoice for fees pertaining to separation of a sanitary service at 120 Sixth Ave. was approved with the lien amount recorded for payment over five years. The shared sanitary service was discovered during the Sixth Avenue reconstruction work this year, and the service was separated at the owner’s consent. The $660 cost is recorded as a lien to ensure the city gets paid over time.

The council approved Quad Cities Metallurgical Laboratory to analyze the copper water service line that deteriorated under Sixth Avenue. The seven-year-old line was repaired at a cost of $2,500 but the cause has not been determined. Expert analysis of the pipe will define the extent of the problem, Lindner said. The quote for the work is $3,311.

The council approved the final readings of amendments to the city’s code relating to parking during snow removal, location of solid waste containers, repealing of a section on remote outside registers, and lien exemptions.

The council continued its discussion on shed regulations by evaluating other cities’ policies.

Matt Simonson of Simonson Towing addressed the council concerning policy on calling tow truck operators for service. The city will investigate the policy.
