Additions or A motion was made by Fisk, seconded by Derifield to adopt the agenda as
Deletions presented. All voted aye.
Motion Carried

Ron Winter Ron Winter, 914 4th Avenue NE spoke regarding the rental inspection code. He was in favor of inspection but not in favor of the dead bolt requirement on exterior doors since he had recently replaced several exterior doors. He also inquired by carbon monoxide detectors were not required as part of the inspection. Sherrets thanked him for bringing this to council’s attention. He also questioned if rental properties in a trust would be subject to inspection? Mulfinger stated if they pay rent or any type of monetary value to live there it is subject to inspection.

Bob Lumbus Bob Lumbus, 520 4th Avenue SE also inquired regarding the carbon monoxide detector. If an inspection came up during the time a rental was being repaired from a former tenant trashing it, what happens? Mulfinger stated you would take the property out of service and if a current building permit was pulled, you would not be inspected.

Brett DeVore Brett DeVore, 7 9th Avenue SE stated Shekleton has been a very good resource for the Landlord Association. He stated he heard the city has four properties identified for teardown. How does that city pay for that. Mulfinger said the city does not have a teardown list for properties. There is $25,000 budgeted annual from Local Option Sales Tax and another $20,000 available with homeowner matching funds and the city receives grant funding.

Application
Ayes: Milks, Cantrell, Derifield, Fisk, Christensen
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Diana Johnson, Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission covered the 9 points listed below at the Public Hearing.

(a) How the need for the proposed activity or projects were identified;

The need for the CDBG water/sewer grant with the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) came from various planning sessions within the city. The City of Oelwein has experienced a significant number of water main breaks and leaks on their older portions of the distribution system. Within the last year, a list of twelve problem areas were identified that needed major repair. Due to budget constraints, mains needing emergency repairs, and portions of the gooseneck water services containing lead, six regions were evaluated to require restoration first.
COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS, MARCH 11, 2019, PAGE 2

(b) How the proposed activity or projects will be funded and the sources of funds;

The request from the IDEA will be $600,000. If successfully funded, the remainder of the proposed activity will be funded through an Iowa Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF) loan, for a total project cost of $1,910,211.

(c) The date the CDBG application will be submitted;

The CDBG water/sewer application will be submitted on or before April 1, 2019 to the IEDA.

(d) Requested amount of federal funds;

The requested amount is $600,000.

(e) Estimated portion of federal funds that will benefit persons of low and moderate income;

Per year 2014 low and moderate income (LMI) data from the Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Oelwein’s LMI is 54.94%. Therefore, it can be expected that the same proportion of the funds will benefit that group of residents or a total of 3,524 persons.

(f) Where the proposed activity or project will be conducted;

The project will be conducted within the city limits of Oelwein in the following six locations; 1st Street SE (Hillside Drive East to 12th Avenue SE), 12th Avenue SE (East Charles Street to Water Tower), 1st Street NE (8th Avenue NE to 13th Avenue NE), 5th Street SE (5th Avenue SE to 9th Avenue SE), 6th Avenue SE (5th Street SE to 7th Street SE), and North Frederick (2nd Street to 7th Street).

(g) Plans to minimize displacement of persons and businesses as a result of funded activities or projects;

No businesses or persons will be displaced as a result of the proposed facility upgrades.

(h) Plans to assist persons actually displaced, and;

No plans to displace any persons.

(i) The nature of the proposed activity or project.

The nature of the proposed project within the City of Oelwein is to include the replacement of 4-inch and 6-inch sand case- and cast-iron water mains with 8-inch water mains. Portions that weren’t previously meeting size compliance with Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) requirements will now be met. Lead service goose necks will be removed as part of the project as well. Water flow and fire protection will be increased.
