Mausoleums Chuck Geilenfeld, from Geilenfeld Funeral Home and Mike Adams from Brannon Monument Co. in Dubuque representing Roger and Bobbi Polark requested city council approve their request to place a personal family mausoleum at Woodlawn Cemetery. The structure would be less than 5’ tall and made of granite. They would purchase 40 grave lots to place the mausoleum and allow extra lots for family with traditional burial around the structure. Three locations are being considered one of which is on land not even plotted for. A permit is required, current city code would need to be reviewed and a city policy would need to be created. City Administrator and City Attorney are to investigate requirements.

Public Hearing A motion was made by B. Weber, seconded by Cantrell to open the Public Hearing on Garbage Haulers License.

Ayes: Christensen, Milks, M. Weber, Cantrell, B. Weber
Nays: None
Motion Carried

Mulfinger stated Mid State Sanitation did not follow the rule and Fayette Co. Landfill banned them from dumping. Their company was sold to Environmental Services and they were also banned from Fayette Co. Landfill. The owner of the company passed away from an accident and the last we have heard from anyone is that Waste Management has taken over their accounts. Attempts to contact Waste Management before the meeting was unsuccessful. Waste Management is in compliance with the county and the city. No action needs to be taken at this time since the owner and person that holds the license is no longer around and the license is not transferrable. City Attorney Lein stated the situation should be monitored and our Police Department should enforce the city ban.
