Public Concerns:

            In order to give equal time to everyone, each person to address the Board will have a maximum time of 15 minutes each.  This guideline is used only if there has not been an official request to appear before the board prior to a meeting.

            None to report

 

 

Correspondence and Communications:

 

  1. Angie was sent an email through Publisher’s Weekly about more changes to e-book and audio book e-lending. The publishing house Simon & Schuster has changed its digital terms of service.  New pricing is in place which in some cases is more than double the previous prices. Also the lending model is changing from one year licenses to two year licenses for e-books.  Digital audios will change from a perpetual access model to a metered model, and must be re-licensed after two years.  There will be no embargos with Simon & Schuster unlike publishing giant Macmillan that has a two month embargo on new e-book titles for libraries.  These changes from both publishers will hurt library lending.  Angie will continue to monitor digital lending and will update the board as necessary.

 

 

Unfinished Business:

 

  1. The carpets were cleaned on September 13, Angie is very happy with the work that was done by Carpet Pro. It was done in an hour and a half, and the carpets dried pretty quickly.  It was suggested that it be done on a yearly basis, Angie agreed.

 

  1. Another sample meeting room chair was reviewed by the trustees. It is not as comfortable as the first sample chair but was sturdier.  It was suggested to look for more chairs and present them at the next meeting.  Angie will do so.

 

  1. Angie attended the fiber internet informational meeting. The $75 will be totally refunded if Huxley Communications does not bring fiber to Madrid.  In order for Madrid to get fiber at least 500 people need to commit to this service.  The city paid and signed up all departments for fiber internet.   The library should still be able to get discounts through E-Rate and may be able to get reimbursed for internal connections.  Angie will keep the board informed of any updates.

 

  1. Angie finished the annual survey for the State Library of Iowa last week. Angie has created the annual report for the board, as well as the City Council and Boone County Board of Supervisors.  The information included in the report was taken directly from the annual survey which covers fiscal year July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

 

 

New Business:

 

  1. A draft of the fiscal year 20-21 budget was given to the board to review. The board has a few questions about this year’s budget, Angie will discuss it with Mary Jo.

On a motion by Kelli, 2nd by Dave the board approved the rough draft of the FY 20-21 budget.

Roll: Pam; yes. Dave; yes. Alice; yes. Kelli; yes. Denise; yes.  Motion carried; all ayes.

 

 

  1. Angie has partnered with Danielle Dalluge, the high school art teacher, in the hopes of creating a library logo. Angie presented mock ups created by the students to the board.  Suggestions for changes will be given and those revisions will be presented at the next meeting.

 

  1. Alice updated the board on her efforts in regards to the butterfly garden (her son created the garden as an Eagle Scout project). Alice is wanting to replace the smaller fencing and bench in the garden area as well as replace some plants.  The cost of the project will be $1,700.  She has already applied for grants and has asked the Friends of the Library for help.  With winter approaching this will be a spring project, but she wanted to let the board know what was happening.

 

  1. Trustee training will happen at the November meeting. Angie will demonstrate the Transparent Language database to the trustees.

 

  1. Angie has requested permission for her and Steph to attend the Kid’s First conference April 5-7 in Ames. Angie explained that this conference has given the library some good programming ideas in the past, for example the library’s annual puppet show.  There will be a cost to this conference.

On a motion by Pam, 2nd by Kelli the board approves that Angie and Steph can attend the Kid’s First conference.

Roll: Pam; yes. Dave; yes. Alice; yes. Kelli; yes. Denise; yes.  Motion carried; all ayes.

 

 

Director’s Report:

 

Angie has filed the first form in the E-Rate process for fiscal year 20-21.  This federal program helps the library with internet discounts.

 

The library will be hosting their annual Trick or Treat Night during beggar’s night (October 30) from 6 to 8 pm.  There will be games, food and fun at this family friendly event.  This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Madrid Library.

The library’s annual silent auction will be held from Tuesday, December 3 through Saturday, December 7th.  Bidding will end on Saturday following the Madrid Area Chamber’s Christmas Extravaganza, which is a change from previous years.  Angie plans on having Amy send out letters to area businesses asking for donations this week.

 

With the Christmas Extravaganza being held on Saturday afternoon Angie will work and keep the library open for people who want to look at the Avenue of Trees.  Angie has decided that board members don’t need to be at the library that afternoon but all board members are asked to bring 2 dozen cookies for the event.  Angie will provide the cider.  The board also discussed ideas for a tree for the Avenue of Trees.

Ayes: Burich, Ostrander, Rigby, Shaver                             Motion Carried

The Council reviewed a bid received from Morris and Company to bore a new pipe under the Des Moines River to replace the water line pipe that recently broke. Perry Gjersvik of SEH Engineering explained the new pipe would be drilled at 15 feet below the river all the way to the well located on the west side of the river. The previous line was placed at 5” below the river in 1999. The new line would be bored closer to the edge of the river which would protect it from any new changes in the river channel. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources asked that a thicker walled pipe be used for the project. The 1350-foot pipe would remove all danger of the river damaging the pipe and is expected to last at least 20 years. The work should be completed in approximately two weeks and will start immediately. Motion by Councilperson Ostrander, seconded by Councilperson Burich to approve the bid from Morris Company in the amount of $265,600.

The funds would be used to pay the cost of boring a new feeder main under the river for water service.

Ayes: Burich, Ostrander, Rigby, Shaver                             Motion Carried

City Clerk, Mary Jo Reese approached the Council to discuss details of a letter received from Madrid resident Denise Moore. She explained the cost of water being purchased from Xenia Rural water and how the calculations for those costs are done. Moore recommended in her letter that water saving measures be taken. This time of year, water usage is low anyway, and the water salesman has already been shut down for the season. Reese also stated there does not need to be any restructuring of debt at this time. Debt held by the City is currently in the best places. There was also reference in Moore’s letter about pulling money from the Elementary School Project to use for repairs to the water line at the Des Moines River. This was never mentioned by the Council as an option, as bond money can only be used for it’s intended purpose. It cannot be shifted to cover another project. Moore also mentioned in her letter the need to evaluate underground leaks to conserve water. Underground leaks are located every year and repaired as needed. Moore also mentioned using raw water to feed into fire hydrants. This is not an option as the same pipes that feed hydrants also feed homes. You can’t contaminate pipes with untreated water. Reese addressed several recent comments that City of Madrid funds being in a “critical” state. The City currently has a 25% cash reserve as recommended by the auditors.

Councilperson Burich stated he has been approached about drainage on West 1st Street, and complaints about too many stop signs in town. He also shared concerns from some individuals about a letter recently received by Alliant Energy work they plan to do in the City in the upcoming months.

Marvin Ostrander thanked Chief Tasler and Scott Church for placing additional stop signs in town.

Chuck Rigby thanked Perry Gjersvik for handling the water line issue, and Mary Jo Reese for clearing up some misconceptions that may be spreading, before they become an issue.

Lane Shaver assured the people of Madrid that the water service is safe and he does not feel a town hall meeting to discuss the issue is needed. As elected officials, he feels the Council members are entrusted with making the right decisions for the people they represent.

Motion by Councilperson Shaver, seconded by Councilperson Rigby to close the meeting at 7:19 p.m.
