Robeck takes oath of office

There is a new, but familiar, face on the Glencoe City Council after Allen Robeck was sworn into office Monday prior the annual organization meeting of the council. But it took a break from tradition to do it after three council members were absent, and the Council did not have a quorum to complete its 2014 business.
So Robeck, a longtime city employee — now retired — who was elected as the at-large council member in November’s general election, took the oath of office early in order to give the City Council its required minimum three votes.

Quorum issue causes dilemma at Council meeting

The Glencoe City Council ran into a dilemma Monday night over a grant request to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) concerning the Armstrong Avenue reconstruction work scheduled for 2016.
The dilemma occurred because newly seated Council Member Allen Robeck, who owns property along Armstrong Avenue, said he would abstain from the vote because of a conflict of interest.
But with the City Council already two members short due to illness and vacation, that left just two Council members to vote, one shy of a quorum.

Rural Glencoe home damaged by fire Monday

A rural Glencoe couple is homeless after an early morning fire Monday.
Glencoe Fire Chief Ron Grack said the fire was reported just after 4 a.m. at 5747 100th Street, southeast of Glencoe.
The home is an older, two-story farmhouse, and the fire is believed to have started in the attic near the chimney.
“It burnt through the roof and one room,” said Grack. Although the fire was contained to the upper story, there was significant water damage.
