Fifth St. assessments finally approved by the Osseo City Council

OSSEO - After considerable and unhappy discussion, the Osseo City Council approved by a 4-2 vote final assessments on the Fifth St. project at the Council's July meeting which took place on July 11 at City Hall.

Home-owners on and in the 5th St. area spoke during a public hearing, objecting to the assessments given complaints out poor or unnecessary construction work concerning their driveways and that the assessments were done inconsistently. Despite this, the council still voted in favor of the assessment.

This matter was done under the Plan Commission portion of the meeting. In other matters in the section, the Council approved a Plan Commission recommendation for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to James Dotta for a detached garage at the corner of Ridgeview and Norway roads.

In other agenda item matters, the Council approved four operator license requests, approved a $2,150.83 invoice for Elevator St. application and $231,655.60 to R.J. Jurowski Construction Company in Whitehall. They also paid the Schaumberg Law Enforcement $3,385 concerning a lawsuit between the city and Sourcecut Industries in Osseo over sand shavings from Sourcecut winding up in the city's sewer system and fines levied as a result.

The Council went into closed session to discuss the sale of city owned land. The Council came out of closed session and took no action. They also discussed potentially appointing an interim Public Works Director (PWD) for the city as the current PWD Ben Ganther will be taking a new job.
