Armstrong takes care of timely business
ARMSTRONG – The Armstrong City Council held a brief special meeting Wednesday to discuss time-sensitive issues.
The council agreed to pay $750 for the Roy Armstrong property contingent on a background check to ensure that there are no liens on the house. The property would have been sold on the county sale Monday, June 15, if no action had been taken.
Council member Don Leach suggested getting bids for tearing down the house.
Mayor Marvin Dailey and council member Todd Eisenbacher visited with Terry Bruns of Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative to discuss an electric franchise.
Bruns said ILEC could purchase it from Alliant, but they couldn’t afford to do so.
The council approved transferring the Armstrong Community Center liquor license for the beer garden on July 3 and 4. The community center and ABC committee will split the proceeds from the beer garden.
Tri-State Paving bid $10,400 to pave Second Ave. The black top will be one to one-and-three-quarters-inch thick. The council approved the bid.
City clerk Connie Thackery announced that they have received a $10,000 grant from the Emmet County Foundation for improvements to one of the city parks.
