The Madison City Council met in regular session Monday night (7/25) at city hall.  The council heard the quarterly report from Sheriff Allen Anderson who reported that, in the city of Madison, they responded to 83 calls in April, 138 in May, 132 in June and 113 so far in July.  Calls were for agency assists, alarm calls, animal complaints, medical related calls, welfare checks, reports of suspicious activity and weather-related calls.

The council heard from Daryl Kanthak of Meulebroeck, Taubert and Company, the city’s auditing firm, who gave the annual audit report.  Kanthak said he found no major problems.  The city has a large enough fund balance to cover 6 months of operating costs if needed.  There was a small loss in the sewer fund but that was the result of depreciation which is a non-cash amount so there is no cause for concern.

The Madison City Council approved a bid of $38,250 from Jeff Mortenson Construction to reshingle the Prairie Arts Center building, that will be paid for by insurance coverage.  The council also voted to transfer control of the Prairie Arts Center to the EDA board.  The EDA, in turn, is working with a private party who is interested in purchasing and rehabbing the building.

The Council approved the expenditure of $7,500 for preparatory work in regard to the installation of an emergency generator at the wastewater treatment facility.  The also approved $10,185 for preliminary work in preparing a grant application to repair the roof on the library.

The next meeting of the Madison City Council will be on Monday, August 8th, 5:00 PM, at the Madison City Hall auditorium.  These meetings are open to the public.
