Council discusses ways to get gas station back in operation
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer Bringing a gas station back into Silver Lake has been a major concern at City Council meetings since the Marathon Station on Highway 7 closed in August 2011. At last Monday’s regular meeting, the Council discussed its options to help those interested in purchasing the station. City Clerk Kerry Venier said the cost of the station is $299,000 and there have been a few interested prospects who have made offers. “However, we haven’t heard anything back from the bank (Mid Country) and as a city, we are wondering what we can do for purchasers if the bank can’t lower their selling price,” Venier said. “How aggressively do we want to sell this business is a question the Council needs to address. At what point do we want to look at using city resources to get someone in there?” Venier said. Venier added that the city has been trying to be an “aggressive salesman” of the station, working with the bank and the realtors to make the sale “more attractive” for buyers. “But I still haven’t heard from the bank in a month now,” Venier said. “What can we do as a Council?” Councilor Eric Nelson asked. “Buy it,” Venier replied. “This is what I mean using city resources. Do we want to make sacrifices financially?” Venier said. He said one option is the city could offer to purchase the business at $299,000 and sell it for $200,000, offering lowinterest loans to potential buyers. “We spent $75,000 of city money to spur development in the Silver Edge Estates development project. That paid itself off over the last 12 years,” Venier said. “And the community was OK with that?” audience member Donovan Holtberg asked. “Yes, they wanted the area developed,” Venier said. Venier said a revolving loan fund could be created to help bring businesses into Silver Lake. Councilors asked about repayment options and “what happens when the first guy doesn’t pay the loan back?” “We’d work like a bank, collecting assets,” Venier said. “I agree with the principal, but we need to retain something to keep the fund going,” Mayor Bruce Bebo said. Venier also said he is working with the Silver Lake Business Association and First Community Bank to create a “package” of financial options for potential business owners in Silver Lake. Venier added that another rumored concern for buyers to purchase the station includes the costs to test the tanks. “Testing the pumps alone costs $15,000,” Venier said. He said Bob Shamla, a previous owner of the station, had the tanks relined with fiberglass material when they were upgraded. “But they needed the annual maintenance of pumping out excess water, and it’s suspected that when Steve and Lisa Hauer owned the station, they didn’t do that. So I don’t

Retiring Quast: He’ll miss the people the most
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer fter 10 years of managing the Muncipal Liquor Store (MLS) in Silver Lake, Jerry Quast is retiring and looking forward to “something new.” Quast, 70, was hired to manage the MLS in February 2003 after working for 10 years as a golf course manager in Montevideo. “I started in Montevideo as a greenskeeper or golf course superintendent, and I moved up to manager there after a few years. They eliminated my position there to cut costs elsewhere, so I needed a new job,” Quast said. He said that his wife, Barb, suggested finding employment between Hutchinson and St. Boni so that they could be closer to the cities. “I looked online and saw the manager position was open here,” Quast said. Quast said he also managed the Eagles Club in Alexandria for 20 years and started his own business, Jerry’s Bar and Grill, but after three years, he sold it and started work at the golf course in Montevideo. “Before working in Montevideo, I went to college in Anoka to become the greenskeeper for the golf course. “I took classes involving agronomy, fertilizer, and, of
Board splits on Luce Line Trail votes
By Lori Copler Staff Writer The controversy over the paving of the Luce Line Trail continued at the June 18 McLeod County Board meeting, resulting on 3-2 votes on two motions. The two new commissioners, Jon Christensen and Ron Shimanski, cast the “nay” votes, and Commissioners Paul Wright, Sheldon Nies and Kermit Terlinden voted in favor. Last year, the County Board voted to devote $500,000 toward the project, with the city of Hutchinson committing $750,000; the city of Winsted, $100,000; and the city of Silver Lake, $10,000. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has committed $500,000, and the group supporting the project is seeking an additional $2.5 million in state bonding. The state did not fund the project last year, which was a non-bonding year. The group decided to reapply this year, which is a bonding year for the State Legislature. The proposed project includes paving the trail from the Carver-McLeod county line to Cedar Mills, as well as an underpass under State Highway 7 east of Hutchinson, and overpass over State Highway 22 east of Hutchinson. Shimanski, a former state legislator, said he has concerns about how money from the “Legacy” funds are distributed. The DNR’s share of the cost of the Luce Line improvements will come from the Legacy fund. Nies said he shares Shimanski’s concerns, but said that if the money isn’t spent in McLeod County, it will be spent somewhere else, probably in the metro area. “We didn’t vote for this money to go to the Twin Cities,” Nies said of the statewide vote on Legacy funding. Christensen said that “most constituents” in his district are “outraged” that the county committed $500,000 toward the project, a vote that took
course, the electives. But most of my classes were specific to running a golf course,” Quast said. “Getting this job was one of the best things that happened to me. I enjoy working for the city. I’ve seen a lot of improvements here, and I know things will continue to improve,” Quast said. He said he is “proud” of never losing money in his 10 years as MLS manager. “We’ve came close, but we never did. And that’s not just me. That’s the whole crew,” Quast said. Saturday, June 29, is Quast’s last day as MLS manager, and after that, traveling is in his agenda. “My wife and I will be here until October, living in our camper, and then we will visit our son in Virginia for four weeks before heading to Dallas to visit Barb’s sister and her family,” Quast said. After their travels to Virginia and Texas, the Quasts will then head down to the Gulf of Mexico, near Corpus Christi. “We’ll winter there and then come here in the late spring again. I sold all my snowblowers, so I don’t want to see snow when I come back!” Quast laughed. When asked what he will miss most about managing

Kiss the Creature
Last Sunday, after the “farm service” at Grace Bible Church, Pastor Tom Rakow had to “kiss the creature” for the World Vision fundraiser at the church. Pastor Tom Rakow, Sheriff Scott Rehmann and Chief Bob Carlson collected money via jars throughout the spring at the church, and the man with the most money in his jar had to “kiss the creature,” which was unknown at the time. In total, the three jars raised over $500, and with the youth group’s contribution from the 30-hour famined, over $3000 was donated to World Vision. By $1, Rakow surpassed the funds in Rehmann’s jar, and was left to kiss the calf.
Pola-Czesky button winner named
By Alyssa Schauer Staff Writer This year’s Pola-Czesky button contest winner hails all the way from Illinois, but has her roots in Silver Lake. Sharon Grivna, 45, daughter of Dave and Susie Horejsi of Silver Lake, was the winner from eight total entries for the 2013 Pola-Czesky button design contest. “I had submitted designs in previous Pola-Czesky button contests, and thought I’d just do it again,” Grivna said. She said the “funny” part about entering is that her twin sister, Karen Klatt, entered also. “And she got second place! It must be a twin thing. Neither of us knew the other had entered the contest,” Grivna said. Grivna said her grandmother had every single PolaCzesky button on a magnet

She said she wanted to continue the tradition of incorporating Pola-Czesky highlights, but “do something a little different.” “I just fiddled around on the computer, and found some music clip art to put in the bot-

Seniors to meet on July 8
The Silver Lake Senior Citizens Club will have its monthly meeting on Monday, July 8, at 1 p.m., in the Silver Lake Auditorium. Continued from page 1 place before he joined the County Board on Jan. 1. It was noted that the $500,000 had already been forwarded to the state to be banked for the project. “I think we need to move ahead,” said Wright. “We already have a half-million dollars into this.” Shimanski said he was “strongly opposed” to spending the money on the trail, “and I urge the Board to ask for that $500,000 back.” The County Board passed the resolution supporting the request for bonding funds on the 3-2 vote. Another motion, which would have authorized County Administrator Pat Melvin to prepare the necessary paperwork, also passed 32, with Shimanski and Christensen again casting the dissenting votes. In other business June 18, the County Board: • Adopted the new, 10-year comprehensive water plan, which has received approval from the Board of Water and Soil Resources. • Approved out-of-statetravel for Public Health Educator Jean Johnson to attend an Olweus (bullying prevention) trainer certification course in Plano, Texas, for an approximate cost of $1,050. • Approved its annual agreement with the University of Minnesota Extension Service for the 2013-14 McLeod For Tomorrow Leadership Program. • Agreed to spend about $9,200 to upgrade the clerical work stations in the old dispatch/clerical area of the sheriff’s department. The work includes moving clerical work stations into the former dispatch area, and additional overhead storage bins and work surfaces. • Heard from McLeod County Attorney Mike Junge that an appeal on a variance granted for the Buss feedlot has been served on the county. That appeal will be heard in District Court, Junge said. • Set a joint meeting with the Sibley County Board of Commissioners for July 11 to discuss health insurance. The two counties share county employee health insurance plans.

know the condition of the tanks,” Venier said. The Council agreed to continue the discussion at future meetings, and Venier said he will continue to talk to the bank and realtors on the status of selling the station. In other matters, the Council: • Accepted two $520 donations for the pool operating funds and the summer recreation program from the Silver Lake Knights of Columbus. • Approved the 2013 premium for property/casualty insurance at a cost of $29,855, up from the budgeted cost of $27,825. “There’s not really much we can do about that. We looked at many plans to get costs as low as they can get. We do get dividends, which help reimburse those costs. Hopefully, that can cover us,” Venier said. • Approved replacement of the power panel at the pump house, located behind the auditorium, at a cost of $2,370. • Reviewed the Municipal Liquor Store (MLS) report, finding that total operating revenues for May 2013 were $21,389, up from May 2012 revenues of $18,631. The total operating expenses for May 2013 were at $23,329.62, up from May 2012 expenses of $16,964.73. Councilor Pat Fogarty said the reason expenses increased was because of three pay periods in the month. May 2013 net profit showed -4.31 percent. The year-to-date report showed 2013 revenues at $106,342.77 and expenses at $87,388.10, producing an 8.97 percent net profit. • Hired Brian Moison, Justin Petterson and Joe Ebert as part-time bartenders at the MLS, pending drug test results. • Hired Mitchell Rothstein and Trevor Posusta as parttime seasonal lifeguards. • Heard the annual bike rodeo is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, at 10 a.m. • Heard that an attempted theft from the Silver Lake Liquor Store was stopped by an employee on June 4. Police Chief Forrest Henriksen said a description of the individuals and vehicle were given by the employee, and the two suspects were later identified. He said it was determined that the perpetrators were also involved in a theft from the Glencoe Liquor Store earlier that evening. Fogarty said MLS Manager Jon Jerabek was getting quotes to install cameras at the liquor store. • Approved the variance application from Jan Welle to split her lot at 217 Grove Ave. S.

In last week’s editorial in the Silver Lake Leader, a factual error was found. A 2-1 City Council vote concerning the Luce Line trail mentioned in the editorial never occurred. The Silver Lake City Council did not take a vote on whether to seek state funds to pave the Luce Line trail, Mayor Bruce Bebo said. The motion simply died from a lack of a second, and the mayor does not make or second motions under the City Council’s rules. Councilor Carol Roquette was absent from that meeting leaving three councilors and the mayor. Two councilors were against the idea, and no one was left to second the motion on the floor. But when a motion is made and seconded, the mayor does cast a vote on the five-member City Council, Mayor Bebo explained. ***** The Leader strives for accuracy in its reports. If you find an error, bring it to our attention. Call 320-864-5518 and ask for Rich Glennie, editor.

Building project open house June 28
In recent weeks, I have had the privilege to speak to several people about the building project. As a school, we have had more conversations about this as our needs have not gone away. A reminder to everyone is that this project is driven by the needs at the Helen Baker facility. It is old and outdated, and while I am the first to say the education the students are getting is second to none, it could be better if our facilities were better. We need space for our students, not only from a classroom standpoint, but from an activity, library, multi/flexible learning space standpoint as well. The other driving force behind the project is the need for more classroom, activity and locker room space at the high school. As wonderful as our field house is, we need more space for our students and community members. This project will allow the district to save money in transportation, lawn and snow maintenance, but most importantly, it will allow our school to have the flexible learning spaces our students need to have. This project has so much potential for the learning opportunities that it makes the possibilities very exciting. From a safety standpoint, we need secure entrances in our buildings and the project will

Who needs to travel for adventure?
So the last week has been pretty exciting: I won a box of chocolates at Music in the Park last Thursday; braced against a wicked rain and wind storm Friday that cut short Dairy Day and left a few puddles and a wet couch in my apartment; drove the ambulance ever so carefully in the Glencoe parade on Saturday; watched Pastor Tom Rakow smooch a calf for charity after church on Sunday; and tried ratatouille (rat-a-too-ee) for dinner with some friends on Monday. It’s weekends like these that remind me I don’t have to be in the jungle or under the Eifel Tower or living in a tent for six months to have a sense of adventure. Now that Music in the Park started, summer is in full swing, and I see it has no intentions of slowing down — 35 days until Pola-Czesky Days! On Thursday, I practically skipped down Main Street toward Legion Park for the sixweek Pola-Czesky prelude. I know I’ve said it before, but I love Music in the Park — the food, the music and, of course, shooting the breeze with family and friends. And I can’t forget the prizes ... I was shocked when I heard my name! Winning chocolate really made it a perfect evening. The fun continued at Dairy Day in the park the next day, with good music, good food, and prizes, but due to the incoming storm, our night was cut short. It was a scramble calling off prizes and fixing last-minute dinner plates for the rush of people before the storm hit. We all raced home to get out of the rain, and as we approached my apartment, I noticed the wind pushing the rain horizontally, right into my open windows. Argh! I ran up the stairs in soaked clothes, arms full of leftover ice cream sandwiches, a reporter’s notebook, and a bulky camera case, and fumbled for my keys before dropping everything and racing to the windows to shut them. My sitting chair cushions and the back of my couch were soaked, and there were large puddles all over my wooden floor that, of course, I slipped through when I scurried around my apartment for towels. Luckily, a couple of fans running on high dried things out in no time and my furni-

also address this need. This project is still very much in the conversation stage. With that in mind, I would like to invite anyone who is interested to stop by a question/answer session, somewhat like an open house, at the high school auditorium on Friday, June 28, starting at noon and going until 1 p.m. or so. The concept behind this is if people are interested, they can stop in during their lunch hour to ask questions. Later in July, we will schedule an evening meeting for those that couldn’t attend June 28. Shifting gears a little to share some of the successes we’ve had at GSL this past year. It is truly amazing what our students and staff are doing — state Knowledge Bowl champs, second place state trapshooting team (in its first year), robotics team completing a first successful year, and we are developing a Farmto-School program that will link school to community, to name a few. There are many examples of success in the classroom, such as positive improvements in our ICU program, increased usage in E.C.L (Enrich, Challenge, Learn) our afterschool study program, increases in test scores and proven programs such as Olweus and RtI implemented in our schools. As you can see, great things are happening at GSL and will continue to do so. Other exciting news: construction has started at Lincoln on the Early Childhood Learning Center. In a short six months, we will have a new facility for ECFE/ECSE and School Readiness. This is very exciting and welcomed. While it doesn’t fix all of our facility needs, it is going to be a wonderful space for youngest learners. Please be very careful and aware when and around Lincoln during construction. Until next time, enjoy the summer days as they are already getting shorter in length, which means the start of school is getting closer and closer!

ture was back to normal, and, maybe, even a bit cleaner. Saturday and Sunday were just as exciting with the Glencoe Days Parade and the “Kiss the Creature” fundraiser event at Grace Bible Church, where Pastor Rakow gave a big ol’ wet kiss to a little calf. (See the picture in this week’s Leader.) And eating ratatouille on Monday was really the “icing on the cake” for an exciting weekend. I had never tried the dish before, nor had I ever seen the animated film, so on Monday, I did both — watched “Ratatouille” while eating ratatouille. Have any of you tried it? At first I was leary of all the vegetables — it includes eggplant, zucchini, onions, mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes — but it is probably the most delicious dish I’ve ever tasted. Not to mention, it entails a cup of fresh Parmesan cheese, which might be the reason I love it so much. And the movie was precious — about this rat who is great at cooking and helps out this young chef at a Parisian cafe. And so for your enjoyment, I’ve included the recipe in this week’s recipe column, so head there if you’re interested. You won’t regret it. And I’ll even recommend the movie, but it probably won’t be as enjoyable unless you eat ratatouille as you watch it. Bon appetit!

Someone please turn off the faucet! After an extended time of being in drought conditions, we’ve done a complete 180 and now have been seeing too much rain. Most areas in south central Minnesota saw anywhere from two to eight inches of rain from the most recent bouts we’ve endured, and unfortunately, as I write this, there are a couple more, early-week chances. I’m hoping we escaped with only minor amounts, fingers crossed. Onto this week’s forecast: if we can get through the early part of the week, things dry out for the end of the week with only a weak chance of rain or thunder late Saturday into Sunday. Highs to end the week should be in the low to mid 80s, perhaps wavering a bit if the cooler air mass moves closer to us. The weekend looks mostly good so, hopefully, plans can go off without a hitch. And speaking of getting hitched, congrats to anyone getting married this weekend in Silver Lake! Have a great week all, enjoy the last week of June (is it July already?) Ma dobry weekendem Mit dobry vikend Wednesday night — Lows 64-70; partly cloudy. Thursday — Highs 82-88; lows 61-67; clear. Friday — Highs 78-84; lows 58-64; clear. Saturday — Highs 78-84; lows 58-64; mostly clear/night thunder. Sunday — Highs 78-84; partly cloudy/early shower. Weather Quiz: What are some of July’s weather extremes? Answer to last week’s question: A derecho is another name for what meteorologists call a “bow echo.” This is a thunderstorm complex that forms along the boundary between very warm, moist tropical-like air and cool air. It forms in a line and bends out into the shape of a bow. Derechos are big wind producers and live for a very long time. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area one is the one that pops up in most people’s minds. They can have winds up to 100 mph, and that one actually formed in the Dakotas and survived all the way to Maine! Remember: I make the forecast, not the weather!

Trailblazer honors volunteers at annual appreciation dinner
By Lori Copler Staff Writer ohn Glawe of Glencoe and John Siewert of Gaylord were honored for their volunteer efforts with Trailblazer Transit at its annual appreciation dinner and training held June 11 in Glencoe. Glawe, a volunteer driver with Trailblazer Transit since 2002, was given the Horizon Award. The Horizon Award is given to a “volunteer driver who has gone above and beyond the call of duty time and time again in a selfless and compassionate manner to assist customers” during the year. Glawe said he began volunteering with Trailblazer after he retired in 2002. “I was 621⁄2 years old, and I was looking for something to do,” said Glawe. “I didn’t want to work full time.” Volunteering as a Trailblazer driver seemed to be perfect for Glawe, who has stuck with the two-county transportation service for 11 years. “It’s very flexible,” said Glawe. “I can take rides if I want, and if I don’t want to, I can say ‘no, thanks.’ It’s perfect for someone who’s retired.”
In fact, the job is so flexible that not only can Glawe turn down individual rides, he can head south for a few months in the winter if he chooses. “You can come back after three or four months and pick up like you never left,” said Glawe. But while the flexibility is important, Glawe said he enjoys volunteering for other reasons as well. “You meet a lot of people, hear a lot of interesting stories, see a lot of interesting places, and you get around the countryside,” said Glawe. Volunteers can take those who do not drive to doctor and other appointments, and Glawe has been all around the state. “It’s rewarding,” Glawe said. “You get a chance to hear a lot of life stories. Trailblazer has done very well by me.” Siewert received Trailblazer’s Voyageur Award, which goes to a volunteer driver “who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in the number of service miles, service hours, trips and oneway rides” provided during a calendar year. Siewert has been a volunteer driver with Trailblazer
Kermit Terlinden, left, vice chair of the Trailblazer Transit Joint Powers Board, presented John Glawe of Glencoe with the Horizon Award at Trailblazer’s annual volunteer appreciation dinner on June 11. since July 2010, and has completed 615 one-way rides during 230 trips. He volunteered 5441⁄2 hours and drove 18,095 miles as a Trailblazer driver in 2012. Siewert said he volunteered for Trailblazer at the suggestion of his wife, Mavis. Mavis Siewert had been a volunteer driver, but broke her wrist and had to stop driving, and suggested her husband look into it. “So I went and checked it out and took the test, and the rest is history, I guess,” said John Siewert. Like Glawe, Siewert enjoys the flexibility of the job. He is busy on Tuesday mornings with the Sertoma Club, and on Wednesdays he is a carrier for The Gaylord Hub. “If you can’t take a ride, you just say so,” said Siewert.
John Siewert of Gaylord, right, received Trailblazer Transit’s Voyageur Award from Joint Powers Board Vice Chair Kermit Terlinden at the volunteer appreciation dinner on June 11. “You can really just take the trips you want.” Siewert worked for the Post Office for 29 years, “and that really made me kind of a people person, and you really get to meet a lot of people in this job, and you’re still doing a little bit of good for them.” Last year, 14 Trailblazer volunteer drivers completed a total of 4,480 one-way rides on 1,958 trips. The drivers volunteered 5,9423⁄4 service hours and drove 169,819.3 service miles. Those interested in learning more about the volunteer driver program can call Trailblazer Transit at 1-888-7433828, or visit its website at www.trailblazer.com, and click on the “Volunteer Driver Program” tab on the lefthand side of the home page.

County Board votes 4-1 to continue yard waste program at 50% funding
By Lori Copler Staff Writer McLeod County intends to continue some funding for its yard waste program — but only for communities that also participate in its recycling program. At its June 18 late afternoon meeting, the McLeod County Board of Commissioners voted 4-1 to continue the yard waste program, funding 50 percent of the average of the costs from the last three years. The funding will leave out Glencoe, which recently approved a contract for recycling services that is separate and independent of the McLeod County program. The participating communities, Commissioner Sheldon Nies said, “will have to demonstrate how the money is spent and participate in the county recycling program.” The logic behind that, Nies said, is that the yard waste program is funded with revenues the county receives from marketing the recycled waste that it collects through its program. Commissioner Kermit Terlinden, whose district includes the city of Glencoe, asked the County Board to table adoption of the yard waste funding. Terlinden noted that the county is looking into the possibility of a single-sort recycling program, which is what the city of Glencoe adopted when it entered into its recycling contract with Waste Management. Nies pointed out that the county had asked the city of Glencoe to wait until the county explored the option of a single-sort program before Glencoe entered into its own program. However, Nies said, the city went ahead and approved its own program. Nies also said that recycling collected in Glencoe by Waste Management doesn’t come to the county’s Material Recycling Facility (MRF), and, therefore, doesn’t contribute to the revenue source for the yard waste program. What the county collects in other communities does go to the MRF, where it is sold to other markets as a source of revenue. If the county continues to partially fund a yard waste program in Glencoe without being able to collect the revenue from the recycling, it “means that Silver Lake, Winsted and everyone else will pay for Glencoe’s yard waste program, and that’s not right,” Nies said. Nies also said that even if the county adopts a single-sort program, there is no guarantee that Glencoe will terminate its own program and come back under the county’s program. Terlinden said he didn’t feel it is right to leave Glencoe out of the yard waste program and voted against the motion to continue the funding at 50-percent level. In 2012, the County Board had considered eliminating funding for the program altogether, with a three-year program to eventually eliminate all funding; the first year of the three-year program was to provide 100 percent funding; the second, year 50 percent; and no funding in the third year.

Flooding closes roads, causes washouts in county
By Lori Copler Staff Writer McLeod County closed several roads due to flooding Sunday, according to Highway Engineer John Brunkhorst. As of Tuesday, only County Road 74 (140th Street), east of County Road 1 (Dairy Avenue), remained closed. “The worst seems to be County Road 74; we have a washed-out culvert, probably 48 inches or bigger, that will take some time to replace,” said Brunkhorst. “The other locations seem to be minor, but we can’t do a full assessment until the water really goes down.” Brunkhorst said the Highway Department also became aware of an issue with a culvert on County Road 54 south of Stewart “that we need to do some investigation on. “That seems to be the brunt of it for now, but more rain is forecast for tonight (Monday),” Brunkhorst said late Monday afternoon. Other roads that had been closed because of flooding were County Road 1 (Babcock Avenue), between Highway 7 and Lester Prairie; County Road 65 (75th Street), south of Highway 212; and County Road 93 (190th Street), between County Road 15 (Falcon Avenue) and County Road 1 (Babcock Avenue). McLeod County Emergency Services Director Kevin Mathews said that most damage seemed to be centered in the eastern portion of the county, although there were issues throughout the county. The city of Winsted was hit with a power outage and lost one of its lift stations, causing water and sewer back-ups, Mathews said. As for the county government itself, the North Complex offices were closed Monday because the parking lot was flooded. “It just wasn’t safe to drive in there,” said Mathews. More storms were predicted for Monday night into Tuesday, but fortunately, that didn’t happen, Mathews said. “We did go in and pick up computer cables and power strips from the floor, just in case there was more flooding,” Mathews said. The closure of the North Complex meant that residents couldn’t access the auditortreasurer’s office, recorder’s office, Veterans’ Services and the license center. Water in the parking lot had dropped considerably by Tuesday morning, giving customers access to the building. There also was a water issue at the county’s Health and Human Services building on Ford Avenue North in Glencoe. Mathews said the building has a sub-grade boiler room area which also houses computer equipment, and it took in about a foot of water. “It wrecked some exposed computer equipment,” said Mathews. The building was open for business, though. With more rain expected Monday night, the county filled about 200 sandbags which it intended to use to block doorways at the two buildings, Mathews said. Fortunately, the rain didn’t come and the bags weren’t needed. Mathews said the county is working on contingency plans for keeping employees working even if buildings are closed, such as working at home or using space at the courthouse. “However, so much of the work (at the two buildings) is customer-related, so that makes it tough,” said Mathews. Mathews said the county is currently doing a preliminary damage assessment to see if it will qualify for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding. Cities and townships will be contacted to find out their costs of damage. The county must meet a $125,000 damage threshold in order to qualify for FEMA reimbursement, Mathews said. The state also is doing a statewide assessment, and must meet a threshold of roughly $7.2 million, he added. In Brownton, city workers were kept busy in the early morning hours of Sunday through Sunday evening pumping storm water from sanitary sewers. There were numerous reports of water in basements, from seepage to several inches, at several residences. There also were reports of standing water in several yards. Other than a few downed tree branches, there was no other storm damage. Stewart City Clerk Ronda Huls said she wasn’t aware of any issues that occurred in Stewart, although Friday evening’s rain cut attendance at the street dance at Stewartfest by quite a bit. The dance was moved indoors to the fire hall.

Heavy rains flooded the Grove Avenue construction project in Silver Lake this past weekend. A total of 5.1 inches of rain accumulated over the weekend between Friday evening and Sunday morning. According the public works supervisor Dale Kosek, a total of 13.3 inches have fallen in Silver Lake since May 17.
