Cyrus New Fire Hall Taking Shape

Cyrus sees new fire hall building taking shape


Cyrus Fire Chief Jeff Anderson at the Cyrus City Council meeting on July 14 reported on the progress of the fire hall saying the site has been completed, and the building should be starting soon. Chief Anderson also presented a change order for the council to approve for add-ons to the project. A change order for $7,785.00, which includes an eye wash station, wash sink, ceiling tile in the meeting room, and larger entry was approved.

Water distribution project
Bryan Bye from Widseth Smith Nolting was present and went over the bids for the water distribution project. He explained that the city should wait to award the bid until after Aug. 11, when the city opens the bids on the water filtration plant. By contract, Cyrus has 60 days to approve the bids and award the project on the water distribution project; that way the city can get a better idea on the total cost of the total project.  

In other action the council:
• Was informed by Rick Brustuen Jr. that the street that goes to the sewer treatment plant needs gravel. Fire Chief Jeff Anderson reported that there may be some extra gravel from the fire hall project that could be used.
• Approved Resolution 2105-105 authorizing the clerk and treasurer to pay the monthly bills that come after the council meeting but are due before the next meeting.
• Approved Resolution 2015-106 to authorize the mayor and the clerk to sign the grant agreement for construction funds with the Minnesota Dept of Public Safety. The State of Minnesota has allocated $225,000 as a grant to the City of Cyrus.  
• City Clerk Julie Rutter updated the council on the bids for the 1969 fire truck. The high bidder was not able to be reached and did not respond to letters and phone calls. The bid was then awarded to the next highest bidder, for $2,001.  
• Approved a permit application from Century Link.
• Officer Bob Tirevold reported on the blight inspection letters that he sent and the follow up inspections that he conducted. Attorney Brent Waddell will send letters to the people that have not complied.
