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.

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

Lori Brockway, Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission covered the following:

A. How the need for the proposed activity or projects were identified:

The need for the Owner Occupied program was identified through meetings held by public officials and the identified unmet need for housing rehabilitation through the Fayette County Local Housing Trust Fund Program. Oelwein’s aging housing stock is also another indicator with 44.3% of the homes constructed prior to 1939 and 87% of the homes constructed prior to 1979. As the LMI population is at 54.95% there is a need of the CDBG funds to improve the homes for those citizens.

COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS, NOVEMBER 14, 2016, PAGE 2

B. How the proposed activity or projects will be funded and the sources of funds:

The proposed activity will be funded with $15,000 of local match or $2,500 per home from the City of Oelwein for the owner-occupied program for six homes. The Northeast Iowa Charitable Foundation will provide $9,000 or $1,500 per home, the Fayette County Local Housing Trust Fund will provide $3,000 or $500 per home, the Fidelity Bank & Trust will provide $1,200 or $200 per home and the Community Bank of Oelwein will provide $1,200 or $200 for six homes with a total of $29,400 in local match.

C. The date the Housing Fund applications will be submitted:

The Housing Fund Owner-Occupied applications will be submitted on or before January 13, 2017 to the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA).

D. Request amount of federal funds (Housing Fund):

The requested amount is $245,250 for the Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program.

E. Estimated portion of federal funds that will benefit persons of low and moderate income:

The City has proposed assisting 6 LMI households with rehabilitation of their homes. The intent is to target those living in homes considered to be in deteriorated condition. In looking at the 2010 American Community Survey Data provided by Iowa Economic Development Authority, 54.94% of Oelwein residents are considered low-to-moderate income persons and it is expected that these funds will benefit 6 homes of that 54.95% population.

F. Where the proposed activity or project will be conducted:

The projects will be conducted within the target area in the city limits of Oelwein within the following boundaries:

Northern Boundary: The Northern Boundary is defined as 3rd Street NE between 8th Avenue NE and North Frederick Avenue.

Eastern Boundary: The Eastern Boundary is defined as 8th Avenue NE between Wings Park and East Charles Street.

Southern Boundary: The Southern Boundary is defined as East Charles Street between 8th Avenue NE and North Frederick Avenue.

Western Boundary: The Western Boundary is defined as North Frederick Avenue between 3rd Street NE and East Charles 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 during this process.

H. Plans to assist persons actually displaced:

There are no plans to displace any persons.

Recently, the City of Oelwein has been dealing with the possibility of pulling a hauling permit from a hauler in Oelwein.

16-24. License revocation.
A.
4. If the licensee has had permit to dump at Fayette County Landfill revoked or suspended. Under this reason for suspension, the revocation is immediate without further notice or opportunity to be heard
Council has also discussed the possibility of restricting hours of garbage haulers. City Council can add language to Chapter 16 Article II Collections that restricts collection to a set time during the day. This part of the code would be added near the end of Collections.

Chapter 19 Article II Dogs and Cats
The City of Oelwein has dealt with two instances this summer where domesticated rabbits were involved in a vicious dog hearing. If council wants to change city code, Chapter 19 Section 26 of Definitions on page 276 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Oelwein, Iowa, can be amended to add as follows:
19-26. Definitions. Definitions for Animal Ordinances are contained in Section 19-26 of this Code of Ordinances. Additional particulars relating to Definitions are the following:
6. “Domestic Animal” means only a dog, cat or horse being used in a parade or other public function.
