Del Val highlighted two concept plans that would propose access to the water at the Scotch Ridge Nature Trail Park and at the Carlisle City Park. Del Val explained that by making the water accessible it would benefit user groups such as paddlers, park visitors, waders and anglers. Council inquired about the long term maintenance of the access points and Del Val noted that the DNR has regional programs that could help with the clean-up. Council discussed the funding for the project and Ashby noted that there could be future funding available through grants. Council asked that if by making the water more accessible would there be concerns about kids getting into the water unsupervised. Ashby explained that there would be a need to educate the public and that this could be done by signage in the area discussing what the intent of the access area is and how it should be used. There was continued discussion regarding the time frame to construct the sites as well as if there would issues with DNR permitting. Ashby noted that the timeframe was dependent on the project and gave example of upcoming projects in the metro that may have a 5-year timeframe. There was also discussion regarding funding for the proposed projects and if there were grants available or if it would be funded by the city. Ashby noted that there was possible grant money but also mentioned that some cities paid for the entire projects.

Council member Doughty noted that there was discussion at the 26 March meeting from Mayor regarding an upcoming trip to China sponsored by the Des Moines MPO and asked that it be included in the minutes. Mayor noted that he spoke to Lent regarding the item and that it hadn’t made it onto the agenda at that point.

Minutes were corrected to read as follows; Under Mayor and Council reports there was discussion by Mayor Merrifield regarding a 10 day trip to China sponsored by Des Moines MPO which would occur in November. The cost of the trip would be $3,000.00. Mayor noted that the city currently spends around $2,200 for the three day Washington DC trip. Mayor explained that he spoke with Pioneer that they currently do business in China and he thought this would be a good way to help Pioneer as he would meet a lot of key people. Mayor mentioned speaking with Heartland Coop as well because of the grain exports. He also mentioned the National Play Ground Compliance Group and that this might be an aspect to get a local business to conduct business with a foreign state. Mayor explained that he is asking Council for funding for the trip as he would see a benefit from it either short term or long term for the City.

CITIZEN PARTICIPATION: Ruth Randleman, 15797 Carter Street, Carlisle publicly thanked Andrew Lent for his years of service to the community. Randleman noted that the water access presentation that occurred before her is in the master trail plans and suggested that Friends of the Parks would be a good partner for this project in the future. Randleman also spoke to Council about a proposed trip to China by the Mayor that was mentioned at the 26 March meeting. Randleman noted that she had taken that trip and it was actually sponsored through the Des Moines Partnership. Randleman explained that the trip was 95 percent tourism and would have minimal return to the City. She noted that as a taxpayer she is concerned about the request due to the nature of the trip as it is geared more for tourism than as a benefit to the City. Mayor asked if Randleman spoke with Pioneer regarding the China trip and she responded that it would take a long time to develop the relationships to have those contacts. She noted that Pioneer has their own global contacts.

Matt Lane, 17379 Milo, IA 50166, Circus Fireworks spoke to Council about a possible site for his fireworks stand. Lane spoke to Todd Isley about putting his stand west of Casey’s at 1020 Gateway Drive and south of Todd Isley’s new building. Lane noted that the area is zoned C2 so it does meet zoning requirements. Council inquired if there would be concerns about the increased traffic and Lane mentioned that he would put in temporary parking by laying down a matt and overlaying that with gravel. He would remove the gravel and matt after the stand closed. Stuyvesant noted that there may be restrictions in C2 zoning regarding temporary parking and also questioned if there was an easement restriction on the use of the lane to the proposed fireworks stand. Lane asked if the previous location he inquired about was off the table or if Council would still consider this location. Council replied that the zoning requirements for that location did not comply with the City ordinance for sale of fireworks. Lane will look into the easement for that property and will get back with Council.

Kurtis Noonan, 6 Park Street, Carlisle, member of Troop 133 spoke to Council regarding a proposed project for his Eagle badge. Noonan would like to paint the fire hydrants and curbs as well as install flags at the site of the hydrant. Noonan has spoken with Anthony Rhinehart and Fire Chief Cory Glover for permission and wanted to see if there were any special permits he would need from the City for the project. Council noted that they were not aware of any special permits needed. Noonan explained that there were around 253 hydrants and he will be asking for volunteer help. He is hoping to have the project completed in June.

Randleman expressed interest in remaining as the primary representative and Mayor Merrifield serve at the alternate. Mayor noted that the purpose of Randleman staying on as the primary was to achieve more financing and that goal has been met. Council discussed keeping Randleman as the primary due to her years of service as a representative with the Des Moines Area MPO and her experience with the policy committee. Council also noted that is takes several years to gain a relationship with the MPO and that Merrifield would benefit from having Randleman as the Primary to introduce him into the group and get a feel for the committee.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL REPORTS

Van Ryswyk thanked Andrew Lent for 4 ½ years of service to the City and wished him well.

McCulloch thanked Andrew Lent his service to the City. McCulloch also noted that he was contacted by a gentleman regarding truck sizes and would like to meet with Council. It was noted that the individual can contact City Hall if he would like to discuss with Council.

Goodhue noted that he, Merrifield, Hammerand, Lent and Koch attended the Jail meeting which also included the City of Indianola, City of Norwalk, and County Supervisors and that things seemed to be moving forward. He congratulated Andrew Lent and wished him the best of luck.

Doughty noted that he has met with a few department heads to get a better understanding of what they are looking for in a new City Administrator.

Hammerand thanked Andrew Lent for his time served on the City and that he will be missed. He noted that at the Jail meeting he brought up he has a different perspective because he visits courthouses and jails across the state and that a lot of the courthouses don’t put the jail in with the courthouse and they are building the jail and courthouse separately. He added in fairness that it doesn’t mean that is the way to do it and that a lot of the locations don’t have the space. Hammerand did note that they said they would like to put in holding cells at the location and he would like that looked into. Hammerand also noted that he did look at the trees that were mentioned in the previous minutes and are planted close to the sidewalk. He thought that since they were ornamentals they may not have a root system that would damage the sidewalk. Hammerand also noted that at the last meeting the Mayor brought up a proposed trip to China. Hammerand expressed that he didn’t know much about it and he spoke with former Mayor Randleman before tonight’s meeting to get her insight on the trip since she had been on the trip. He noted that although it is a great trip to go on he has concerns that it would be more of a vacation and that it would be paid for by the city.

Mayor explained that items on the China Trip itinerary were business related. He noted that he was not pushing but just making Council aware that he was going to reach out to see if he could make this a business trip. He is still doing research. Mayor discussed the Jail meeting as well. Mayor thanked Andrew Lent for his service and wished him the best of luck.

CITY ATTORNEY REPORT: Stuyvesant thanked Andrew Lent for his service to the City.

Hydrant Flushing Notice

The City of Carlisle Water Department will be flushing fire hydrants beginning April 16th through April 20th 2018. Because of the nature of the work it is not possible to predetermine how long flushing a given area will take. Water Department crews will be flushing between the hours of 7:00 am and 11:00 pm. This work is being done as part of the Water Departments annual water main and hydrant preventative maintenance program.

Customers should be aware of the potential for dirty or discolored water. This is a temporary situation resulting from flushing sediment out of the pipes. The water may also be cloudy or appear white due to air entrapped in the water. All water system customers are cautioned to check the water before use. Should you experience dirty water, simply wait for a period of time and it will clear up. We at the City of Carlisle Water Department apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and appreciate your understanding.
