					CITY OF SCHULENBURG
SCHULENBURG, TEXAS
FEBRUARY 18, 2008


The City Council of the City of Schulenburg met in regular session on Monday,
February 18, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Room. Mayor Roger Moellen-
berndt, Alderman Ernest Kutac, Alderman Douglas Behlen, Alderman Johnny
Fowlkes, Alderman Audrey Wick and Alderman Leo Kopecky were present. Also
present was City Administrator, Ronald Brossmann. City staff present were
Candace Berger, Tami Walker, Marvin Wick, Arnold Stoever, Willie Thomas,
Eugene Schrader, Ronald Bohac, Sharon Kuester and Chief Randy Mican. Visit-
ors included Darryl Vyvjala, Rachel Bolfik, Emil Roeder, Jeanne Mican, Allison
Mican, Clint Mican and Arlen Berger.

Alderman Behlen made a motion to accept the minutes as received. Alderman
Kutac seconded it, which was adopted unanimously.

Under presentations by citizens, Emil Roeder addressed the meeting with three
questions. First, he questioned whether the rezoning of residential property to
commercial ever reverts back to residential zoning. Alderman Fowlkes address-
ed it by answering that in the specific case at the last meeting, it was stated that
the property will revert back to residential if the business venture ceases to exist
or the property is sold.

He also questioned the use of lights at the Sports Complex and whether some-
one is paying for the field lights. It was explained that the City has an agreement
with SISD for the baseball and softball teams to use the lights. There is also a
team that pays for lights each week to practice on the fields.

Mr. Roeder’s final question concerned an agenda item that he requested Alder-
man Kutac to put on the current agenda relating to the department heads being
present to discuss departmental activities. Mayor Moellenberndt explained that
the department heads were present; however, the discussions will be held in ex-
ecutive session. Mr. Roeder cited a 1999 ruling that he believed required depart-
ment operations be discussed in open session. Council clarified the issue by
saying that the department heads could require the discussion in closed session.

Also under presentations, Mayor Moellenberndt read a letter from Sheriff Keith
Korenek thanking the City for their participation in the Deputy Santa program.

Mayor Moellenberndt also announced that he and Ronald Brossmann met with
the American Cancer Society – Relay for Life Chairman on Friday regarding the
possible use of the south and east sides of Wolters Park. The event would take
place on April 26th and 27th. Council requested an agenda item for a formal vote.
City Administrator, Ronald Brossmann reported on several items. They are as
follows:

  1. Mayor Moellenberndt, Alderman Kopecky and I attended a
     memorial service on Saturday for Judge Paul Huser. Judge
     Huser was the City’s legal counsel for almost forty years.

  2. The four major roads coming through town now have jake
     brake signage installed.

  3. The larger No Truck Traffic signs have been installed by the
     City Cemetery.

  4. At the BBQ pits in Wolters Park the iron framing is up and has
     been painted. We still need to install the metal for the roof.

  5. At the Sports Complex the girls softball field now has a new
     outfield fence. The Little League Association donated the
     materials. The labor for the project was furnished by SISD
     employees, Little League volunteers and city employees.

      Also, at the softball field, a new scoreboard was donated by
      Prosperity Bank. A picture honoring this presentation will be
      forthcoming.

  6. In the past couple of weeks our crews have replaced three
     sewer services to local residents.

  7. We extended the water line along the west side of the Expo
     Center and added several water faucets.

  8. There was more curbing poured along August Street in front
     of the apartment complex. We have street reconstruction cur-
     rently in progress along Avenue A and new culvert pipes were
     installed along Highway 90 off of Avenue A & B.

  9. An update on the Well #10 rehabilitation stated the following:

      “J & S Water Wells has completed mechanical removal of the
      deposits on the inside of the liner and screen using a drill bit
      and they have jetted the debris from the well. They have run
      a video survey confirming that at least 98% of the built up
      material has been removed. There is some very hard mater-
      ial that could not be jetted from the last few feet of screen
      section, but the acidizing process may dissolve this material.
      J & S is working to schedule delivery of the hydrochloric acid
      one day next week and will proceed with the acidizing pro-
      cess as soon as they can get the materials on site.”

  10. Council has also received a colored photo of signage being
      painted on the wall of the downtown restrooms. The project
      will cost $375.00 for labor and $85.98 for materials.

Chamber of Commerce Representative Rachel Bolfik presented their quarterly
report. She wanted it understood that the February payment to the churches will
complete their 2007 obligation of payments. She reported on events attended and
ones currently scheduled. They are anticipating a busy spring.

Alderman Wick made a motion to increase the pay scale of the election workers
from $6.50 an hour to $7.50 an hour, the alternate judge’s pay from $7.00 an hour
to $8.00 an hour and the election judge’s pay from $10.00 an hour to $11.00 an
hour. Alderman Kopecky seconded it, which was adopted unanimously.

Alderman Fowlkes made a motion to raise the salary of the Chief of Police, Randy
Mican, by 3%. Alderman Kutac seconded it, which was adopted unanimously.

Alderman Wick addressed the council regarding the evaluation and compensation
of the police officers and personnel. Alderman Wick left a previous executive
session early where the item was discussed and was disappointed to find that the
council did not accept the proposed pay scale suggested by Chief Mican. She
also addressed consideration for longevity and certificate pay. Alderman Behlen
stated that the police officers received a much greater increase in pay than the
rest of the city employees and that after comparing the raises granted to the
police department and that of other like departments on TML’s website, we are
very much in line for pay scales. Alderman Behlen then made a motion to accept
the previously agreed upon pay scale, but shortly withdrew a motion because it
was not appropriate to vote on the item. The raises had already been received on
the last pay check.

Alderman Wick again addressed the consideration of longevity and certificate pay.
Alderman Fowlkes reminded her that employees already received longevity pay
and that all city employees should be considered for the same amount. Al-
derman Wick proposed for consideration the Chief’s proposal of a $600.00 an-
nual raise for certificate pay. Many council members were uncomfortable discus-
sing information they were not familiar with and requested that the TECLOSE
TIERS be sent in their next packet for review and consideration.

Alderman Behlen recommended that this be discussed closer to budget planning
since city employees also earn certificates and should be considered under this
plan. Mayor Moellenberndt announced that no action will be taken on this item,
but an agenda item should be on the next agenda for discussion.
Alderman Wick made a motion to pay the bills. Alderman Kopecky seconded it,
which was adopted unanimously.

In accordance with V.T.C.A., Government Code, Section 551.074, the City Coun-
cil of the City of Schulenburg adjourned at 7:40 p.m. into an executive session to
