Meeting Date: August 15, 2022

The City Council Meeting Rundown is prepared by the City Manager and is intended to be used as an informal summary of regular meeting highlights. For complete details on all agenda items, official meeting minutes, or to watch a video of the meeting, click Watch City Meetings.

Trail Signage Grant: The City Council entered into a grant agreement for $11,601 through Carver County’s Statewide Health Improvement Program. The grant will fund a trail mapping and wayfinding sign program in the City. The project is to be completed this fall.

Preservation Ordinance: The City Council adopted amendments to the Preservation Ordinance, which establishes requirements and processes for property owners making improvements in the City’s Downtown Historic District.    

Infrastructure Projects: The City Council authorized advertisement of bids for lift station improvements, using funds the City received via the American Rescue Plan Act. 

Alternative Claim Response: The City Council took action to extend the claim submission period to September 30, 2022, for the City's “Alternative Claim Response” connected with two high water pressure events that occurred in May and June of this year. Residents impacted likely experienced a valve break on an in-home appliance as a result of the high water pressure event. In most cases, the surge impacted a pressure release valve on hot water heaters.

The water system is comprised of several pressure zones, based on the local topography and fire protection needs in the community. The City Engineer noted a valve failure, located near the Water Treatment Plant, as the leading cause of the high pressure events. 

Although the City’s insurance provider found the City not to be liable for the impact of the high pressure events, the City Council nonetheless approved an “Alternative Claim Response” that will reimburse costs up to $2,000, directly attributable to the pressure surge events.  For costs exceeding $2,000, impacted property owners would be required to submit a claim through their own homeowner’s insurance, with the City reimbursing the associated deductible connected with the claim.  

Questions regarding the Alternative Claim Response can be directed to Lynn Tschudi, Finance Director, by calling (952) 448-8744 or by email at ltschudi@cityofcarver.com
