Denison City Council has new lease partner at Boulders
The Denison City Council approved hiring a new police officer and leasing new management for the Boulders Conference Center during Tuesday’s meeting.
Mayor Pam Soseman says the council approved hiring Aaric Clausen as a non-certified police officer to fill a vacancy that opened about a month ago. The mayor says they also agreed to lease Boulders management to Chris and Carrie Pauley. The submitted proposal lists a rate of $2,500 per month for the next four years.
Mayor Soseman says the council will need to amend the city code after a request by business owners to remove the 15-minute parking sign on Broadway across from the courthouse. They set a public hearing for their next meeting on August 16th about proposed zoning changes to land parcels that are part of the 6th City View addition.
Mayor Soseman says they also approved a new application for their own down payment assistance program.
The council approved the proposal from Karr Tuckpointing for more than $43,000 of brick and roof work on the fire station. They also agreed to pay Feld Security more than $16,000 for Imagination Station fire alarm replacements, awarded about $13,000 to help with a drainage project near HyVee, and will make another payment of more than $5,600 to FourSquare Research for the their completed market feasibility study. Mayor Soseman says the city will now have a budget item for replacing plants in the bio-retention cells and uptown streetscape.
The council also approved the mayor’s proclamation for National Rail Safety Week which is in September.
