Item 2.) At the Special City Council Meeting, the motion died to accept the bid for the proposed McCloud Street Sanitary Sewer Forcemain Improvements and Curb and Gutter.

Tom Dorry, Bob Meyer, and Bill Powell voted nay.

Blair Johnson, Nick Cunningham, Craig Randelman, and Steve Berkner all voted to approve and the motion passed with the majority votes but they needed 4/5 votes to carry it and therefore the motion died.

Item 3 & 4) The Council considered the Approval of a Cost of Living Adjustment for Employees for the 2010 Budget. There were some city employees in attendance who voiced their opinions. The Council respectfully listened to their concerns and answered their questions. The Council took no action and refered the matter to the budget committee.

Item 5)The Council discussed the matter of having the Chamber of Commerce pay for the parts for an electric board that could be used for special events. The Chamber was requesting that the city provide the labor to build the board. This board would save the Chamber from having to pay to rent one for numerous events. There was some discussion as to who would own the board when it was complete. The council voted to approve.

Item 6) The Chamber of Commerce was asking the City of Ortonville to pay for the transportation of two electrical generators for the Cornfest from Sioux Falls. It would cost $900.00 to transport the generators and the Chamber was offering to pay $400.00 of that. The concensus of the council seemed to be that the Chamber should be responsible for that cost. There was no motion and the measure died.
