On Friday, September 4, 2009, he received a grant for $1,650 from the US Fish & Wildlife. The Hamburg Fire Department portion is $165 from the $1,650 so they are getting $1,480 from the Feds. The money will be used to purchase four wild line jackets, four wild line pants, and a drip can. A drip can is used to start a fire if something needs to be burned off.
  • City Clerk Gruenhagen commented to Fire Chief Droege to keep up the good work.

H1N1 Flu Virus

  • Fire Chief Droege reported he is working on protecting staff. They will be receiving some masks and they will be getting shots in October. The Fire Department is getting everything necessary to respond to this type of call.

Fire Prevention Week

  • Fire Prevention will be at the Hamburg Fire Station on October 9th. They will have the Smoke House available for the kids to go through.

S.A.F.E.R Breakfast – October 11th

  • The Fire Department was going to be holding a breakfast this fall at the city park to show case the new Tanker and some of their equipment, however now Mario is in need of some money for the S.A.F.E.R. program. The breakfast will now be for S.A.F.E.R. but targeted towards Mario's start up money that he used out of his own pocket. Scott Karels (225 Railroad Street) will be putting in for some matching funds. Cologne, Norwood/Young America, and Waconia want to be part of this event and will help out where needed. Tickets will be $6.00 in advance and $7.00 at the door, all you can eat. Menu will be scrambled eggs w/ham, sausages, French toast, toast, hash browns, juice, milk, and coffee. Pizza Ranch and Subway asked if they will have a silent auction. Fire Chief Droege already has 7 items that could be used for one. This will be put on by the HFD Relief Association.
  • Fire Chief Droege already has the Community Center reserved but it may not be big enough to hold the event, he asked if they could use the Hall instead.
  • Council and Fire Chief Droege discussed this event and one of the things brought up was who could do the wiping off of tables and general cleaning during the event.
    • The Boy Scouts will be contacted and the City has a Sentence to Serve person who could also work the event.

Pension Increase for Reporting Year 2010

  • The Hamburg Fire Department had a meeting last Monday night and Fire Chief Droege brought up the subject of paying the fire fighters per hour. The fire fighters voted unanimously (100%) that they did not want anything per hour. Fire Chief Droege mentioned to the fire fighters that out of 11 departments Hamburg was last. New Germany receives $1,300 (pension) and they get $7.50 per call.
  • Chief Droege stated that he had congratulated Hamburg's fire fighters for not wanting to go to per hour. Number one is that they are saving the City taxpayers money.
  • Fire Chief Droege went on to say that if they were going to be paid per call/hour it would cost the City about $7,500.
  • Fire Chief Droege added that when you ask them to do something they are there to do it and he really thinks they deserve a $75, $95, or $100.
  • Fire Chief Droege thinks they do their share and dump a lot of money in. If they would not have gone after FEMA grants that they have, Council would have had to raise taxes an extra $280,000 for equipment to purchase air packs, compressor, radios, and gear. They saved the city $17,000 on the generator. He thinks the fire fighters deserve more than a $45 or $50 raise.
  • Councilmember Mueller commented that he does not think that Hamburg Fire Department should be compared to other departments in Carver County, maybe New Germany. You take the number of units they have and the number of calls. One city just took $150 away from their fire department. How much burden do you want to put on the taxpayers? We need a fire department, but.
  • Fire Chief Droege added you have 85% of the towns that are not fully vested.
    • Councilmember Mueller added that this does not mean anything to him but the rest of council it seems like it is a big concern.
    • Fire Chief Droege commented that it does not mean anything to him either.
    • Councilmember Mueller commented that their investments have doubled in 10 years.
  • Fire Chief Droege continued that he knows it is a tough thing.
    • Councilmember Mueller added that he has heard this from some of the residents
    • Fire Chief Droege countered, maybe those residents are former fire department members but we do not have residents jumping out to come and help us either. It seems like the criticizing is much more than the praise in this community. Don't get me wrong I am only talking for myself, they deserve a little better, they voted a $50. Don't get me wrong we greatly appreciate it. He just wanted to put it in the minds of Council that if they can do something more, fine. You don't want to play catch up for it was done one year.
  • Fire Chief Droege reported on what area towns are getting; Mayer - $1,700 and $9 per call, Norwood/Young America - $1,475 and $8 per call, New Germany - $1,300 and $7.50 per call, New Auburn - $1,000 and nothing per call, Plato - $1,090, Brownton - $1,000. Outer metro they are lower but he does not know what other towns in the metro they could compare to.
    • Councilmember Mueller commented that the employees wages are not compared to other cities our size in the metro area.
    • City Clerk Gruenhagen replied that when the employee wages were set Council had looked at Metro and non-Metro wages then they did an average of the two.
  • Fire Chief Droege mentioned again that it is in the Councils hands and if they want to increase the Relief fund by $45, it is greatly appreciated.
  • City Clerk Gruenhagen asked Fire Chief Droege when the Fire Department feels a decision should be made. Fire Chief Droege replied by the end of the year, December.
    • City Clerk Gruenhagen asked Council to make a decision by the council meeting on October 27th.
  • Fire Chief Droege commented that if you give the other employees a 3% increase that would be about a $43 increase to the Fire Department Pension. You could round that off to $45 to make it $1,450.

  • City Clerk Gruenhagen informed Council that he had received a memo from Ted Breckheimer (Prof Ins. Providers/Shorewood) that the Certificate of Insurance for To The Home Wireless Internet was cancelled effective 08/21/2009.
  • City Clerk Gruenhagen reported that he has not been able to confirm this with Mr. Sprengeler. The memo was just received this morning. Clerk Gruenhagen called Mr. Sprengeler but has not received a reply back. If this is true then when all the work was done on the Water Tower he was not covered.

  • Councilmember Cummiskey suggested spraying along the fence line by the baseball field.

Play Ground Equipment in Brownton

  • Councilmember Mueller went over to Brownton and checked out the play ground equipment they will be selling. They have a small set like the one down at the park and they also have some old sets. The older piped equipment is in very poor condition and not worth purchasing. The smaller set has a double slide and a tunnel. This set has been used, on the steps where they are rubber coated you can see where it is starting to chip. Where the stairs are dipped the coating is pealing off. If the set is purchased new parts would have to be installed and it may not be worth it.

If the water has to be shut off this winter, so the pipes do not freeze, the water will also be shut off at 331 Louisa Street (Justin Spande). The two homes share the same water shut off. The only thing that could be done is shut the water off inside the home not outside.
  • Councilmember Mueller continued that the other problem with the home at 420 Maria Avenue is that their property does not go into the alley where the water main is.
