City of East Gull Lake addresses public safety fund issue

East Gull Lake City Administrator Brenda Thomes informed the East Gull Lake City Council on March 4 that the public safety fund appeared to be running in the negative, according to draft meeting minutes.

Rather than wait for the city’s auditor to direct the council to fix the problem, Thomes requested authorization to transfer $3,242.22 from the general fund to the public safety fund. The council unanimously approved the transfer.

In other business, the council:

• Approved a variance application for David Hirth and Mira Quiring, who were seeking to remove two existing cabins from their property and replace them with a single, new, energy efficient building.

• Decided to contact the city attorney to see if Mayor Dave Kavanaugh is allowed to vote on city Equivalent Residency Connection count policy changes without constituting a conflict of interest.
