Spring Primary Election Feb. 20th
|The Dodgeville City Council met on Tuesday to discuss a variety of licenses and ordinance before spring primary elections which take place on February 20. Absentee voting for the spring primary election started on Monday.|
With Mayor Todd Novak and Alderperson Mark James excused from the meeting, Alderperson Dan Meuer presided at the council meeting. The meeting commenced with approval of January city council minutes as well as a discussion from City Clerk Treasurer Lisa Riley.
Riley addressed "thank you" letters from the Sun Program for $3000 in contributions. A PECFA claim report was filed addressing repairs for the old dipper lot north of the Chamber of Commerce. The DNR sent acknowledgement of receiving that claim and it will be further reviewed.
Software conversion updates are still in the works for the utility format to be put in place. Training for the new invoicing system is set to take place this Thursday with all department heads.
The new utility program is also up and running. All utility bills were mailed out due to the "e-bill" portion still being worked through. Once the "e-bill" portion is worked through, people will have the option to view their bill live online, and to see current and past payments.
The next portion of the meeting involved discussion of temporary retailers licenses, as well as an ordinance. A temporary Class B Retailer's license was approved for the Dodgeville Chamber of Commerce. This license is for the Grilled Cheese Championship that takes place on April 28. Another temporary Class B Retailer's license was approved for the Dodgeville Chamber of Commerce for the softball tournament set to take place July 7-8. A new two year operator license has also been approved for Calynn Bennett. That license ends on June 30, 2019.
Ordinance 13-66 was approved that amends Section 12.02 (11)(b). The current amendment allows longer sales for Class A intoxicating liquor license premises. This pertains to retailers such as gas stations and off premise consumption type facilities. New hours will be midnight to 6 a.m. that fermented malt beverages cannot be sold. Intoxicating liquor cannot be sold from 9 p.m.-6 a.m.
With spring primary elections taking place on Tuesday February 20, next council meeting will take place on Wednesday February 21.
