Mayor Marlo Tveter stated in his mind that Moore Engineering would continue as City engineers until they completed their current projects, then the City would put out bids for engineers. Council Person Harry Clinc made a motion to bid for engineers when doing projects. That motion failed with four no votes, Brandriet, Zimmcr, Roscndahl and Volk and two yes votes, Cline and Seyer. Council Person Zimmer said that Moore Engineering had bccn contracted with for their knowledge on arsenic and their ability to lind grants to assist in payment Council Person Dana Rosendahl stated M~x)rc Enginccring had bccn very successful in finding funds for Cakes, at no added cost to the City. A motion was madc and seconded to allow Moore Engineering to proceed checking into water project~ and which would be the best route for Cakes to take. Council Persons Rosendahl, Zimmer, Brandriet and Volk voted yes. Council Persons Citric and Scycr abstaincd. Motion passed. At the end of the meeting following the watcr discussion. Council Person Zimmer made a motion to allow Moore Engineering to continue as the City cngineers until the The Tiger Scouts were learning about how news travels and about spreading the truth on Tuesday, December 14. In an effort to earn their Tiger Badge, they visited The Cakes Times and KDDR Ra- dio to see how the media worked. Rayanne and Matt Schaefer are the Scout Leaders for our local Tigers. The boys are first graders, between six and seven years of age. The curious group of scouts, II Council decides their services are no longer necessary. Council Persons Rosendahl, Zimmer, Brandriet and Volk voted yes. Council Persons Cline and Seyer votrfno. When asked what the problcm was with Moore Engineering, Mayor Tvcter said, "I had requested of Mtx~rc Engineerings Roger Fenstad a new representative attend the mcctings. Roger didn't live up to the bargain when the former representative attended the last rcgular meeting. I felt it was a blatant disregard of my authority." Tveter did not say why hc wantcd a different representative or what the problem was in thc beginning. Mayor Tvetcr, Council Persons Roscndahl and Clinc and othcrs made a trip to the State ttealth Department in Bismarck contenting the watcr issues in Cakes. It appcars Cakes has three choices, r/lral Wg:l|cr, water treatment plant or possibly point of use or origin arsenic rcmoval tilters, Moore Engineering will study the phm~ and bring thei~ recommendation to the (?ouncil.
