Today’s news update – Moreland will face a jury; Jensen’s drug addiction left multiple victims; After 8 years of talk, the doors open on a new Police Facility and you’re invited in

Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:02pm

Moreland will face a jury

Michael Wayne Moreland will face a jury in December.  He was allowed to withdraw his guilty plea of Careless Driving in connection with the death of Kimberly Motzko in July of 2012.  After hearing arguments, Judge Neuville said he didn’t believe the plea was correct, saying it was structurally flawed anyway.  Moreland’s attorney, David Hvistendahl contends that evidence, specifically an ipod,  that would influence a jury in favor of Moreland was withheld until just before the plea hearing on September 16th.  Hvistendahl accused Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster of misconduct and asked for sanctions.   According to Hvistendahl the case partly hinges on whether Motzko, who was walking with her back to traffic, was listening to an ipod when she was struck.  Neuville told him that the ipod is not an intervening cause.  Meaning that that’s not a defense for Moreland. Hvistendahl agreed but added that, in front of a jury, it would be relevant.  Hvistendahl added that he was not supplied with prosecution’s notes from an interview with a technical expert that said he could not testify that Moreland had been reading a text message at the time of the accident.   Neuville found no fault with how Beaumaster has handled the case and denied sanctioning him.  The judge set the trial date for December 15th on the original charges of Criminal Vehicular Homicide/gross negligence, a felony and Careless Driving, a misdemeanor.  The Motzko family was present but had no comment.  Judge Neuville instructed attorneys to not openly discuss any other evidence to the media as there’s already been “too much chatter with respect to discovery”.   A witness for the defense, discovered after the plea, will likely now be interviewed by the prosecution as well.  The trial is expected to take 5 days.  A list of all witnesses must be presented to the Judge by November 7th.

Jensen’s drug addiction left multiple victims

Police Chief Monte Nelson commented further on the victims of Matthew Jensen, convicted of burglary and the killing of family pets.  He said there were multiple victims including one who is battling cancer.  Also all the neighbors who were frightened, especially after Jensen was released again.  Nelson says sometimes we forget about the victims but yesterday was a good day for them as the system worked, eventually.  He praised his officers and the Rice County attorney’s office for the work they did.  Nelson added that it comes down to addiction.  Specifically Jensen has a heroin addiction.  He mentions the possible drug overdose last week.  Nelson said this needs to stay fresh in peoples minds, parents need to keep watch over the kids early on and lead them away from that path.  Nelson says it’s not always the hard drugs, it usually starts with alcohol or marijuana.

After 8 years of talk, the doors open on a new Police Facility and you’re invited in

The conversation about building a new safety center/police facility started in 2006 and today, it’s a reality.  Police Chief Monte Nelson, his officers and staff are opening the doors to welcome the public from 4:30 to 6:30 this afternoon.  They’ll have as many officers as possible, 7 Reserves and all the administrative staff on hand.  Nelson said that part of this is about viewing the building but a large piece is also to meet the officers.  Tours will be self-guided but officers and staff will be stationed in areas to explain what the rooms are used for and answer questions.  A short flag raising ceremony and dedication will take place at 4:30.  Nelson urges folks to park at the street facility across from the station on Riverview Drive.

Need dirt?  Habitat has it…

Rice County Habitat for Humanity has 30-40 truckloads of dirt.  It’s YOURS if you load it and haul it.  Located in Dundas on Spring Wheat Drive.  Call their Construction Coordinator, Mike Terry at 507-330-0740, if you’re interested!

Today’s news update – Council Chamber walls echo whoops and hollers after Library expansion vote; Water Patrol gets suited up; Giving at The Grand is opportunity for Non-profits

Wed, 10/22/2014 - 12:02pm

Chambers breaks into applause after Library expansion vote

After years of languishing in limbo, it looks like the Library is going to get it’s expansion.  Last night the Northfield City Council approved the predesign and additional funds to bring the building up to code.  Mayor Graham asked Building inspector Jim Kessler if some of the code items could be grandfathered in.  In a word “no”.  Graham had said he would not vote to give them a penny more than $1 million but made an exception for the $262,000 to bring the building up to code as that’s a necessity the City should pay for.  City Administrator Hagenmiller added that there’s a permitted use for TIF 4 district money of about $54,000 for things like landscaping.  The Council also chose to front the Library $250,000 to allow them more time to fundraise. Finance Director Melanie Schlomann told council that the City has a plan in place, a separate account that will allow them to “front” that money for 3 years and also to allow them to accept the donations.  Graham asked Library director Teresa Jensen if she thought they’d have any problem raising the rest of the money, she emphatically said “no”.  Support for the project has been overwhelming as Councilors were flooded with emails and by the number of people who spoke during the public comment period.   At one point Councilor Pownell wanted to “take the temperature” of council about giving the Library another $100,000 citing the Library as a City service.  Graham felt it was complicating the process.  After some back and forth, that was never put into amendment form.  Council voted 6 to 0 with Suzie Nakasian absent.  The estimated for the project is $2.1 million with a 10% contingency included.  With the money committed by the City and the Library’s fundraising they have $1.9 million.  Mayor Graham’s interview this morning is posted online at kymnradio.net.

Water Patrol gets suited up

With 22 lakes and rivers that run through it, the Rice County Sheriff’s department received grant funding through the Minnesota DNR and County Commissioners were quick to allow them to accept it.  Sheriff Troy Dunn said they’ll receive $12,552 for the Water Patrol to purchase dry suits and float coats.  Dunn had put the items in his budget because of the importance of the equipment.  Now with the grant, one of the Commissioners asked “can we reduce your budget” [laughs] Dunn replied that he did reduce it some.  Dunn said they have tried for years to receive the grant and are pleased to finally get the opportunity.

Giving at The Grand is opportunity for Non-profits

Northfield Gives at the Grand will be held again this year in conjunction with Give to the Max Day, November 13th from 5-9 pm at the Grand Event Center.  Organizers of the event want area non-profits to know that there is still room available to participate at the event.  The cost for the non-profit to participate is $50, which gets you a 4 foot table space.  Each non-profit must provide their own laptop and a person to man the table as well as have an on line donation page set up with GiveMN. They have space for 28 and right now they have 20.   If your non-profit would like to participate please email beth@crwp.net by October 31st.  

The event is a celebration of giving for the Northfield community and a place for area non-profits to raise funds all in one location! Last year 20 area non-profits were present and collected donations for their various organizations totaling over $100,000.  Donors can enjoy appetizers and a cash bar while they support local non-profits.  From 7-9 pm the Bohemian Duo, featuring Chad Johnson and Russel Franek will provide music.  Admission is free to donors as long as they make at least a $10 donation to a Northfield Area non profit onsite or have already done so earlier in the day on line.  Each donation to a non-profit at the event enters that non-profit into drawings to win “Golden tickets” valued at $500, $1000 or a $10,000 final drawing, every donation counts!

Today’s news update – St. Olaf telephone SOLD; Grant money for High school sports; Preliminary layout for pedestrian crossing heads to MnDot for approval; Library expansion project approval on Council agenda

Tue, 10/21/2014 - 12:02pm

St. Olaf telephone SOLD

After having been tentatively sold to Arvig and placed in the middle of a battle at City Hall between Jaguar and Arvig, St. Olaf Telephone Company has been sold to Jaguar, the company who eventually won the contract with the City of Northfield.  Customers were notified via email on Friday.  In a phone call with Accounts Manager, Carol Roecklein (reck line) she said that while the agreement’s been signed they are awaiting approval from the FCC and the PUC which could be 60 to 90 days.  She did remark that it will likely be sooner rather than later.  St. Olaf CFO, Jan Hanson, repeated the 2 reasons the college is getting out of the phone business;  the new technology would require a large investment and the core mission of St. Olaf is education not running a phone company. She would not disclose terms of the agreement but said that Jaguar started courting the local telephone company soon after they won the City contract and Arvig backed out.  Roecklein and Hanson both said there’s talk of Jaguar opening a storefront here in Northfield.

Grant money for High school sports

The Northfield School Board approved participation in the State High school league foundation grant program.  They get dollars from the League to help support activities fees for students who might not otherwise be able to.  Superintendent Chris Richardson said last year 130 students were able to take advantage of the funding.  While the High School League helps fund student activities, the Booster Club also generously supports athletic programs.

Preliminary layout for pedestrian crossing heads to MnDot for approval

The preliminary layout for the pedestrian improvements at the intersection of TH 3 and Third Street has been forwarded to MnDOT District 6’s staff for review. The design should be completed in time for construction in 2015, if the Council votes it through. This would have to be an addition to the 2015 CIP and could potentially be done in conjunction with Second Street.  That project’s price has escalated.  Based on a more detailed analysis,, the estimated cost has increased because additional reconstruction is recommended. The current estimated cost is $3.2 million. City Administrator Nick Haggenmiller says this far exceeds the CIP allotted amount. As a result it is recommended that the project be split into two phases.  This will be on Council’s November 10th meeting agenda to accept the feasibility report and a public improvement hearing will be set for December 2nd.

Library expansion project approval on Council agenda

The Northfield City Council meets tonight.  There are 2 public hearings.  One for the Riverview Industrial Park Street reclamation and the other or order plans and specs for the project.  On the regular agenda is just one item, the Library expansion project.  Last week during the work session Library Director Teresa Jensen asked for more money.  Specifically $262,000 for building improvements to get it up to code.  That’s above the $1 million council agreed to.  They’re also asking for the City to front them $250,000 to be paid back into the General Fund over a multi-year time period.  The meetings are now streamed through the City’s meeting portal.  Mayor Graham will be in studio tomorrow morning at 7:20 to discuss the meeting.

Today’s news update – HRA has plans to cross Hwy 3 for revitalization; School officials hold meetings on facilities; 219 Water to be demolished soon

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 12:02pm

HRA has plans to cross Hwy 3 for revitalization

Community Development Coordinator Michele Merxbauer presented to Council last week regarding the HRA’s work plan and levy.  They’ll see an increase of $10,000 due to property values having increased not because they raised the levy.  She said one area of focus includes the neighborhood revitalization program which will be in it’s 3rd year.  They have submitted to the State for grant funding and it looks like they’ll get their full request which is the first time.  They should know by the end of October or early November.  In 2015 they plan on crossing Hwy 3 and focusing on the Cherry Park area around St. Olaf Hill.  It would include from “Spring and Linden to Manitou and  Forest and 3rd up to Greenvale”.  Their goal is to revitalize 5 neighborhoods by 2017.  Another goal is to look into the addition of senior housing.

School officials hold meetings on facilities

The Northfield School Board listened to more on the Facilities Master Plan.  They’ve moved through several stages and now are talking with staff and to the community about what they see are important needs.    Superintendent Chris Richardson and HR and Technology Director Matt Hillman are in the process of wrapping up 18 listening sessions with staff in each of the buildings.  Now they’re starting meetings with the parents.  There are 3 key questions they’re asking, what’s going right with the buildings and what’s not going so well with the building.  There are continued concerns over security, parking and congestion at drop off and pickup times.  Space for storage and room for small group meetings.  Some buildings need more natural light as well.  The 3rd category they call their “magic wand” category.  “If you could have anything you wanted for the building, what would it be?”  Richardson said all of the older buildings have more issues but they’re in good shape.  He added that he’s excited to meet with high school students coming up too.  Senator Dahle is working on legislation for 2015 to find funding for School Facilities.

219 Water to be demolished soon

Crews removed Asbestos from the now City-owned property at 219 Water Street, the former Fink barbershop.  After the waste removal and air quality report American Excavating will start demolition of the building which should be down by mid-November.  Staff is preparing some options for council consideration on what to do with the space.  Previous discussions included working something out with the Pitsavas family for outdoor dining.
