The bills were reviewed by the coun-

cil. Bills were individually reviewed

by LaRocque and Kraft. There was

a motion by LaRocque to approve

payment of the bills as presented.

Second by Trottier, roll call vote,

Albrecht-yes, Kraft-yes, Bednarz-

yes, LaRocque-yes, and Trottier-

yes, motion carried.

Stewart presented the cash report,

revenues to budget and expenditure

to budget reports. There was a mo-

tion by Albrecht to approve the

financials as presented. Second by

Kraft, roll call vote, Albrecht-yes,

Kraft-yes, Bednarz-yes, LaRocque-

yes, and Trottier-yes, motion carried.

The Rugby Fire Department annual

financial report was reviewed by the

Council. Fire Chief Derek Bush was

present to answer questions. There

was a motion by Albrecht to accept

the Rugby Fire Department’s annual

financial report. Second by

LaRocque, all voting yes, motion

carried.

Cody Chilson, Vice President Dako-

ta Natural Gas, addressed the coun-

cil regarding natural gas and the

possibility of bringing it to Rugby.

He explained that they initially

looked at bringing natural gas to

Harvey and would need to expand to

a second community to make it

feasible. He explained that Hillsboro

and Mayville will have natural gas in

the near future. Chilson gave a brief

history on the company.

Chilson explained that if propane

could be purchased for $.66 or less,

it would be cheaper than natural

gas. He explained the historic rates

of natural gas. Chilson explained

that fuel oil users would have to pur-

chase fuel oil for $.99 or less for it to

be cheaper than natural gas.

Chilson went on to explain the

amount of natural gas that a com-

munity would need to consume to

make it profitable for them to expand

to a community. He also explained

that the first year they come into a

community approximately 65% of

the residential customers sign up for

service.

He explained the commitment, of

natural gas usage, that the company

looks for from the businesses for five

years. The permits and approvals

that are necessary to bring natural

gas to a community take time to get

into place.

Chilson explained that only the

businesses and residents that sign

up for natural gas service will be

billed for service. There is no finan-

cial commitment from the city to

bring natural gas to Rugby. He ex-

plained that meter fees and rates

are utilized to recover costs for in-

frastructure.

They discussed the difference in the

quality of the natural gas and the

btu’s that it would produce for the

user. Chilson explained costs that

residents may encounter when look-

ing to switch to natural gas.

Hartl questioned why a franchise

agreement was necessary. Greg

Palmer, President and CEO of

Dakota Natural Gas, explained that

it outlined the construction rules re-

garding street repairs, etc.

Chilson explained that prior to the

company ordering materials or ob-

taining permits they would ask the

council for an ordinance. Steinke

explained that the information meet-

ing had representatives from Rugby

Manufacturing, Rugby Public

Schools, Heart of America Medical

Center and other companies in Rug-

by.

Kraft questioned how long it would

take Dakota Natural Gas to recover

their initial costs. He questioned if

natural gas rates would ever be

comparable to Fargo rates? Chilson

explained that Rugby would prob-

ably never see rates as low as Far-

go. Their infrastructure is 50+ years

old. Kraft questioned the life expec-

tancy of the supply line. Chilson ex-

plained a steel line could last forever

where a plastic line could last for

50+ years.

Neil Lotvedt, former Council

Member and city resident, explained

that in the past KLJ had come to the

city and wanted a franchise fee up-

front before bringing natural gas to

Rugby.

Chilson explained that they run their

pipelines in the public right of way.

He anticipates having at least one

job added to the city, once natural

gas would be installed.

LaRocque questioned if residents

would need to have natural gas

detectors in their homes once they

have natural gas installed. Chilson

did recommend that resident users

install natural gas detectors. He ex-

plained that Dakota Natural Gas

does add odor to their natural gas,

so most people would smell natural

gas if there was a leak.

Palmer explained that a Franchise

Agreement is different than a Fran-

chise Fee. Dakota Natural Gas

would need a Franchise Agreement

from the city, not a Franchise Fee.

There was a motion by Bednarz for

a resolution of support for Dakota

Natural Gas to conduct a feasibility

study to bring natural gas to Rugby.

Second by Kraft, all voting yes, mo-

tion carried.

Maurus Brossart, city resident, ad-

dressed the council regarding his bid

to the JDA for mowing the Chalmers

Lots. Brossart explained that when

the bids were opened, the JDA

tabled the bids. Brossart is ques-

tioning the legality of this practice.

Paul Murphy, licensed attorney

representing Mr. Brossart, explained

that the advertisement for bids was

not specific and questioned what

N.D.C.C. the bid procedure was

based on.

Steinke explained that the bids were

tabled, and that they were rejected.

Steinke cited that the cost of the

bids was the reason that they did not

accept the bids. Lotvedt explained

that bids must be accepted or reject-

ed, they cannot be tabled. He ex-

plained that the JDA is a political

subdivision of the city and that is

why they are addressing the council.

Steinke explained that the vote to

table the bids was not a roll call

vote, but unanimous. Hartl ex-

plained that if the bids are not ac-

cepted it is an assumption that the

bids are rejected.

Jim Olson, AE2S, explained the bid

process as well. He was confused

by the “tabling” of the bids. Olson

recommended that century code

must be followed. Steinke explained

that Mr. Brossart had approached

her about mowing the JDA lots. The

JDA put the mowing out for bids to

be able to allow Mr. Brossart, if he

wished, and the public the chance to

put a bid in for mowing.

Lotvedt questioned if the JDA can

do anything they want? Kraft ex-

plained they cannot do anything they

want. LaRocque explained that he

is told many times that the JDA is an

“arm of the city” and therefore it is a

committee which must come before

the city council. Steinke questioned

Hartl as to difference between the

sub-committees of the council and

the JDA, a political subdivision

created by a vote, and the ability of

the JDA to make their own deci-

sions. Lotvedt questioned if the Ex-

ecutive Director is a city employee?

Steinke confirmed that the Executive

Director is a city employee. Lotvedt

questioned if the JDA board was

elected? Steinke explained that

they are not elected. Lotvedt ex-

plained that because of the tax dol-

lars the council is the overseer.

Hartl questioned if a bid was award-

ed or if a bid was going to be award-

ed. Steinke explained that no a bid

was not awarded nor would be

awarded. Hartl explained that there

are three options for the JDA, 1) the

city can mow the grass 2) grass can-

not be mowed and grow tall; or 3)

the JDA can call for new bids and

award one.

The JDA, in 2020, paid $30 per hour

to have the city mow the Chalmers

Lots. There was a motion by

LaRocque to have the JDA commit-

tee call for mowing bids, again, and

bring them to the city council.

Second by Bednarz. Bednarz ex-

plained that the city public works

employees have enough to do,

without mowing the Chalmers lots

too. Steinke called for a vote, major-

ity voting yes, motion carried.

Brossart explained that he contacted

the Attorney General to have

Steinke release the JDA minutes.

Steinke explained that she felt the

draft minutes had to be approved

prior to them being emailed out to

Brossart. Steinke explained it was

her mistake, which she was

unaware that the minutes did not

have to be approved before sending

out, and then she sent them to Bros-

sart.

The council considered the March

2021 Municipal Court Report. There

was a motion by Kraft to approve the

March 2021 Municipal Court Report.

Second by Albrecht, all voting yes,

motion carried.

The council reviewed and con-

sidered the CVB, March 4, 2021

meeting minutes and financials.

There was a motion by Albrecht to

approve the CVB, March 4, 2021

meeting minutes and financials as

presented. Second by LaRocque,

all voting yes, motion carried.

The council reviewed and con-

sidered the JDA, January 13, 2021

meeting minutes and financials

presented at the February 10, 2021

JDA meeting. There was a motion

by Albrecht to approve the JDA,

January 13, 2021 meeting minutes

and February 10, 2021 financials.

Trottier questioned where the JDA

was with hiring an Executive Direc-

tor? Steinke explained that Karl Fri-

gaard has been hired and will begin

on Monday, April 12, 2021. Lotvedt

questioned if the city council needed

to approve the hiring of the new

director? Hartl explained that the

JDA is different than a committee of

the city. He does not believe that

the city council needs to approve

whom they hire. Lotvedt questioned

if the director is an employee of the

city? Steinke explained that legal

clarification on this topic is neces-

sary.

Bednarz questioned what salary Mr.

Frigaard was hired at. Steinke ex-

plained that a $60,000 annual salary

was offered and accepted.

LaRocque questioned if an Attorney

General Opinion would be obtained

as the “legal clarification”. Hartl ex-

plained that an Attorney General

Opinion could be obtained to answer

this question. He believes that the

separate board of the JDA is not

managed by the City Council. Trot-

tier questioned if the JDA is

micro-managing the city council?

Lotvedt gave an example of the Air-

port Authority, which is overseen by

the Park Board. He explained that

the Airport Authority is made up of

appointed members and the Park

Board is elected positions. The city

does the JDA payroll and then bills

the JDA for the payroll and ex-

penses. The JDA in turn, cuts a

check back to the city.

Steinke called for a second for the

JDA minutes and financials. Motion

was second by Kraft, all voting yes,

motion carried.

Recreation Committee: Bednarz ex-

plained that B & J Excavating is

waiting for the ball diamonds to get

moisture before they go out and lev-

el it from last fall. The chain link

fence at the diamonds has been

repaired for a cost of $4,500. He

also noted that girls’ softball has

been using Diamond 3.

Finance Committee: Chairman Kraft

explained that they had discussed

revising ordinance regarding pur-

chasing. They are looking at a draft

policy, instead of changing ordi-

nance.

Ordinance Committee: Chairman

Kraft explained they too are looking

at a draft policy for purchasing.

They discussed pet snakes and de-

cided not to recommend any

changes to the allowed pets.

Public Works: Chairman Bednarz

explained they received an estimate

from Dakota Fence to add fence

around the new CO2 tank on the

north side of the water plant. The

estimate is for $6,675. There was a

motion by Bednarz to accept the bid

from Dakota Fence, in the amount of

$6,675, to install a fence around the

CO2 tank. Second by LaRocque,

roll call vote, all voting yes, motion

carried.

Public Safety Committee:

LaRocque explained that they had

reviewed citizen complaints regard-

ing trees and visibility as well as

semi traffic speeds on Hwy 3

between 2nd and 4th Streets.

Building: Bednarz explained that

they have been looking into window

replacement for the swimming pool.

Olson clarified that they have been

looking at windows to increase venti-

lation at the pool as well as fans and

opening up the garage doors that

have been blocked up. Olson has

reached out to local contractors and

hopes to keep the cost under

$200,000 to allow for informal bids.

His estimate at this time is $195,000

for all of it. Olson requested Task

Order #6 to proceed with an informal

bid process for the work at the swim-

ming pool. Currently there is

$350,000 set aside for pool repairs.

Bednarz explained that the commit-

tee had decided that the ventilation

and windows need to be repaired

before the roof is repaired.

LaRocque questioned how much it

would cost to make the current in-

door pool and outdoor pool. Olson

explained it would cost a lot of mo-

ney to make that transition. Steinke

explained that the Rugby Pool trains

a lot of surrounding community swim

instructors, because we can get into

our pool earlier because it is indoor.

Albrecht shared that she has had

many people voice opinion to her

about maintaining the indoor pool

and not converting to an outdoor

pool.

There was a motion by Bednarz to

move forward with Task Order #6.

Second by Trottier, all voting yes,

motion carried.

Bednarz informed the council that

they had obtained estimates from

FLR Sanders, a Minnesota busi-

ness, to refinish the Armory floor.

Olson explained that the 2 1/2 Ave

Project is on hold, as we wait for the

USDA to review our application at

the federal level. Olson explained

the documents he has forwarded to

Attorney Hartl for the 2 1/2 Ave Pro-

ject. Olson expressed the impor-

tance of these documents and the

attention that is necessary.

Olson explained to the council that

the Hwy 3 project will not be occur-

ring this summer. He had confirmed

with the Devils Lake DOT about the

2 1/2 Ave project and any necessary

permits to cross Hwy 3. They con-

firmed that no permit is necessary

because it is in the city limits.

The Water Plant computers will be

discussed at the next committee

meetings. Windows 7 is the current

operating system on the computers

and must be updated to Windows

10.

Olson shared some of the issues

that have arisen from the new CO2

tank. Tomco is flying in a repair

man whom will be onsite Wednes-

day. The final balance on the tank

will not be mailed until Olson is sa-

tisfied with the work.

Olson explained that the ball dia-

mond easement required a survey,

which should be complete next

week.

Olson briefly informed the council of

the GIS Platform meeting that was

held.

Pipe Detectives will begin televising

the northwest part of town’s sewer

lines on April 26.

The Comprehensive Land plan is in

the works; currently at the steering

committee level.

The FLR Sanders estimates were

reviewed by the council. Two esti-

mates were available. One was a

water based seal for $4,128 and the

other for an oil based seal for

$2,641.92. Kraft questioned if one

bid included sanding and one not?

Stewart reviewed the work explana-

tion of Dakota Design Floors for

$12,300 as well as both estimates

from FLR Sanders. There was a

motion by Bednarz to move forward

with FLR Sanders estimate for

$4,128. LaRocque questioned if

FLR Sanders had any references.

Trottier offered to contact Rugby

Public Schools. Bednarz revised his

motion to read, move forward with

the FLR Sanders, water based esti-

mate for $4,128 provided that Rugby

Public Schools is satisfied with the

vendor. Second by LaRocque, roll

call vote, Albrecht-yes, Kraft-yes,

Bednarz-yes, LaRocque-yes, and

Trottier-yes, motion carried.

Olson mentioned that he had met

with Chief Rose and Munyer re-

garding the staging area for the 2

1/2 Ave Project. McGuires has a

lease with the city, for the property

to the west of Hwy 3, which Stewart

will forward to Olson.

The council considered the gravel

bids received. One bid was re-

ceived today. Bids were due March

31, 2021. The late bid was not ac-

cepted by the council. Steinke

opened up the only bid received pri-

or to the due date from B & J Exca-

vating. Class 5 gravel, $ 14.00 per

yard and Washed Sand, $20.00 per

yard. There was a motion by Bed-

narz to accept the bid from B & J Ex-

cavating. Second by Albrecht, roll

call vote, Albrecht-yes, Kraft-yes,

Bednarz-yes, LaRocque-yes, and

Trottier-yes, motion carried.

The council considered grass clip-

ping hauling bids. Stewart explained

that per the city insurance, the con-

tactor would need to have a hired,

non-owned motor vehicle policy or

endorsement. The first bid, from Ja-

son Solem, for $25 per load.

Second bid opened, from Robert

Spallinger, $25 each for the first two

trailers each day and $15 for each

additional trailer that day. If gas

prices are over $3.75 per gallon the

$15 price will increase to $17.50 per

additional trailer. There was a mo-

tion by Bednarz to accept the bid

from Robert Spallinger, contingent

upon the insurance requirements.

Second by LaRocque, roll call vote,

Albrecht-yes, Kraft-yes, Bednarz-

yes, LaRocque-yes, and Trottier-

yes, motion carried.

The council reviewed and con-

sidered the Limited English Profi-

ciency Plan. Steinke explained that

because we are currently applying

for USDA funding, for the 2 ¢ Ave

project, we must have a LEP.

Stewart explained that we must

meet the requirement because indi-

viduals sign up for water and sewer

service at City Hall. Trottier ques-

tioned the ability to develop a list of

individuals who speak a second

language. Stewart clarified that a

google translate site would be the

primary method of translating to in-

dividuals not speaking English.

There was a motion by Albrecht to

approve the Limited English Profi-

ciency Plan as presented. Second

by LaRocque, all voting yes, motion

carried.

The council considered the Rugby

City Hall Accessibility Survey or 504

Plan. This survey is also necessary

because of USDA funding. This sur-

vey reviewed the handicap accessi-

bility for residents coming into City

Hall to apply for water and sewer

services. Many of the accessibility

barriers are easily corrected, except

for the need for an elevator to make

the Council Chambers ADA accessi-

ble. There was a motion by Albrecht

to accept the Rugby City Hall Acces-

sibility Survey – 504 Plan. Second

by Trottier, all voting yes, motion

carried.

Steinke questioned how much of the

Industrial Park, undeveloped lots,

that the city has been mowing.

Munyer explained that typically they

mow along the boulevard in the In-

dustrial Park. More research on this

topic will be done.

There being no further business to

transact or come before the Council

at this time, there was a motion by

Bednarz to adjourn the Council

Meeting. Second by Trottier, all vot-

ing yes, motion carried. Meeting ad-

journed at 10:00p.m.
