Council to hear presentation on Harfst memorial

February 21, 2022

Representatives of Arts R Alive will give a presentation Monday night to the City Council of Webster City on the plans for the Kent Harfst Memorial sculpture.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the council chambers of City Hall. The public can access the meeting by logging onto the Zoom teleconferencing platform using the meeting ID 865 0449 9779.

Janet Adams and Mark Dohms, both members of the Arts R Alive organization, will give an update on the proposed sculpture. Harfst, the longtime Webster City director of recreation and public grounds and assistant city manager, died in a cycling accident in September 2019.

Arts R Alive propose to place the sculpture on a slope in the Brewer Creek Park area. The council will consider a motion to approve the request to place the sculpture.

The council is also expected to appoint a new council member Monday night. The vacancy occurred when Brian Miller resigned his seat as he had moved outside of the city limits.

A public hearing for the purpose of considering the maximum tax dollars from certain levies for the City of Webster City’s proposed 2022-23 budget will be set by the council. They are expected to set 6:05 p.m. on March 7 as the date and time for the hearing.

The acquisition of two abandoned or dilapidated properties will be considered by the council. The council members are also expected to authorize a quit claim deed, conveying city owned property at 921 James St. to Russell E. Mourton II.

Requests for the purchase of a tandem axle dump truck and a dump box with hydraulics is also on the agenda for council review.

A request from the street supervisor to seek bids for a hydraulic power unit and two submersible trash pumps will be considered, as well as a request to purchase a 2024 Altec aerial truck.

The council is also expected to award a contract for flooring replacement at the electric utility shop, 309 Third St., to DCD Concrete Coatings.

The council is also expected to go into closed session to discuss the purchase or sale of real estate.
