Fertile City Council News & Notes from February 8th Meeting
Fertile, MN — The Fertile City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, February 8th. A big part of the meeting revolved around the many projects taking place at the Fertile Airport. The Airport Committee has been working on updating their Layout Plan, which City Administrator Lisa Liden says they finalized and approved at the meeting on Monday night.
The Agassiz Environmental Learning Center is looking into some equipment upgrades to help with grooming of their winter trails. The council this week approved a resolution of support for a grant that would cover a majority of the costs for a new snowmobile and grooming equipment.
The Fertile City Council also accepted the retirement of their current billing clerk, but Administrator Liden says they won’t need to post for the position as they already had a qualified candidate ready to go.
And Fertile Mayor Dan Wilkens has once again offered to donate his salary as Mayor back to the community. Liden says the council approved donating part of it to the skating rink and the rest to the Fertile Community Club.
It was also reported at the meeting that there are currently no cases of COVID-19 at the Fair Meadow Nursing Home and are back to testing on a monthly basis.
