Hobson City Council discusses pool and lagoon issues

The Hobson City Council met on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at City Hall. Mayor Loren Drivdahl presided. Council members present were Larry Denton, Ron Peevey and Mike Woods. After reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, the minutes of the last meeting were read and approved, as was the Financial Report.  

There was discussion about the biochemicals for the lagoon. The pails of solutions received may have been damaged by the weather while in transit. Mike Woods will check this out. The lagoon solution should be poured in at the lift station, not at the school, or it will freeze.  

The fencing at the pool was also discussed and will be remedied.  

Bidders on Hobson projects will need insurance and Workman’s Comp to be considered for any jobs.  The mayor will talk to the attorney for information on this. 

The renewal of the pool tax for five more years was approved by the voters and passed by votes of 213 for and 88 against. Garth French’s company will put a bid in for a grant for the City. Ads will be put in newspapers for this. The meeting adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
