Waverly City Council grapples with $4.8 million sewer project

WAVERLY, MN – Waverly City Council struggled with the question of how to pay for a $4.8 million sewer project near Waverly Lake during Tuesday’s meeting.

Although no decision was reached, it seems clear it will affect taxes and water rates.

There was discussion over how to pay for the expensive project with loans, grants, and help from the public.

“Essentially, there are three ways to get it: we can move part of the levy that we now have for the general fund into the water and sewer fund, we can increase the tax levy, or we can increase the sewer and water rates,” Mayor Connie Holmes said. “Or, we could do all three, and you’ll probably have to do all three.”

Taxes could raise anywhere from 5 to 8 percent, and water rates would raise between about 9 to 15 percent depending on the loans and grants the city would be awarded.

The council will meet again to reach a decision on June 29.

HLWW chooses playground vendor

HOWARD LAKE, WAVERLY, WINSTED, MN – A playweb net, swings, slides and other recreational equipment purchases for the middle school/high school campus were approved at last Monday’s Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted School Board meeting.

The school negotiated pricing with two companies over the past month. The entity chosen, Midwest Playscapes in Chaska, provided a quote of $74,300.

Flagship Recreation (partnering with Landscape Structures in Delano) provided a quote of just under $87,000, which was over the board’s maximum of $80,000.

“We’ve had very good experiences with both companies, and we feel the two drawings [of playground equipment] are as equal to each other as we could possibly get,” Superintendent Brad Sellner said.

Board members Paul Bravinder, Lacy Detlefsen, Dwayne Diers, Joanie Lasiuk, and Jamie Wiech voted in favor, and Board Member Charles Bush voted opposed. Board Member Michelle Heuer abstained.
