CROOKSTON CITY COUNCIL MEMBER JOE KRESL ANNOUNCES HIS RESIGNATION

The Crookston City Council met Monday evening in the council chambers at City Hall.

During the meeting, City Council member Joe Kresl announced he would resign effective May 31. Kresl will move with his family to Maple Lake but will continue to work with the University of Minnesota Crookston as the facility’s head custodian. Kresl said he enjoyed his time on the council. “Just looking at how things can move forward for the good of Crookston and dealing with all Crookston residents,” Kresl said. “I try to answer questions as honestly as possible. It is very enriching.

AIRPORT IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
The board approved a grant application for an airport improvement project. The improvements in question for the airport project will be the addition of taxi lanes on site for a possible T-hangar.”We have already received a recommendation from the Airport Commission to authorize a competitive bidding process for the construction of a T-hangar and a path to the hangar,” said Crookston Town Administrator Corky Reynolds . “The offers were received and they were extremely high. They therefore recommended that we reject these tenders and recommended that we have a proposed tender only for the access roads to the site and potentially the earthworks for the site. We had a meeting with SEH and they recommended that we not prepare the view and just get the taxi lanes accepted and build them this summer and that’s that resolution.

ALCOHOL LICENSE FOR AMERIVU INN AND SUITES
The council approved a liquor license for Amerivu Inn & Suites, formerly Cobblestone Hotel & Suites.
The liquor license is 3.2 for ADITI Inc., doing business as Amerivu Inn & Suites. Cobblestone sold his property and previously had a permit, but it was not transferable to the new owners.

The council approved the approved agenda, including approval of the May 13 meeting minutes and the May 21 special city council meeting minutes. The council approved the disbursement of bills totaling $188,783.59. They also approved the renewal of Cement Mason’s license and ultimately accepted a donation from Paul Gregg for the city of Crookston Park and Rec.
