The Cascade City Council heard MSA Professional Services give a presentation concerning stormwater near Garfield Street, during its Monday meeting.
This was a limited evaluation that was done to confirm the suspicions that the city had. “We do know we have a problem,” said Mayor Greg Staner “What we are dealing with now is how we are going to handle it.”
A motion was made to put more drainage on Garfield Street south of 4th Avenue, and on 1st Avenue, also near Garfield. Both drains will be put on the west side of the streets.
The Council also reviewed a request by Girl Scout Troop 7420 to put a GaGa Ball pit into Community Park. The Park Board had previously approved it, so Council discussed it but took no further action. The Park Board will be in control of maintaining the pit.
Council discussed tax reimbursement for Premium Plant Services. The business met all requirements and now the city will work out formalities.
