SE City Council to consider reposting city manager job

SLEEPY EYE — The Sleepy Eye City Council will consider reposting the city manager job, a position profile an final interview dates with Dave Drown Associates at its meeting on Tuesday, May 14.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the council chambers.

Other considerations include a permit to sell goods on a public street, food shelf relocation to the rear of the Sleepy Eye Community Center, and a funding request for a crosswalk on St. Mary’s Street.

City Attorney Alissa Fischer’s report will include rental inspections, a surveying ordinance, possible food truck ordinance and Larry and Lisa Pelzel’s offer to buy tax-forfeited property.

City Engineer Dave Palm’s report will include 2020 Street & Utility Project, 12th Avenue crossing and 12th Avenue S.E. updates. Airport lighting project bids will be considered.

The city manager’s report includes the sewer reconstruction fund and 2018 budget carryovers.
