At last week’s city council meeting, Nashwauk Police Commissioner Ben DeNucci presented the commission’s recommendation to appoint Joe Dasovich as Assistant Chief and approve a conditional job offer to Derek Peterlin. The council approved the recommendations, which were necessary because of the resignation of Chief Paul Vraa - effective the end of this month.
Other items of business addressed by the council included:
• Approval of the contract for the Fourth of July band, Genetics, in the amount of $1,000. The band will play from 7 to 11 p.m.
• Discussed the west entrance to the Memorial Building. Previous discussion of the entrance did not yield a satisfactory solution, so an appropriate contact will be sought to repair and update the entrance.
• In further discussion, Mayor Bill Hendricks suggested the city look into the feasibility of providing the residents with an additional option for cable television subscribers. Paul Bunyan currently supplies the American Bank Data Center and the company is willing to meet with the Mayor and interested councilpersons. Currently, only MediaCom is supplying cable options to the city.
• The issue of the tanks at the now demolished Spur Station was briefly discussed. Attorney John Dimich informed the council the tanks are the responsibility of the owner or the operator, if different persons.
The meeting adjourned at 5:28 p.m.
