New Ulm City Council Recap 05 Oct 11

The New Ulm City Council appointed Mayor Bob Beussman to the Police Commission on Tuesday. The move is due to recent revisions to the New Ulm City Charter which removed the mayor’s power to fire police officers, but allow him to be appointed to the Police Commission. The mayor replaces Roger Schultz on the commission, who resigned from the post a week ago. In other business Tuesday, the council approved a new location for excess snow storage this winter. The dumping site for excess snow in New Ulm will now be on South German Street between Third and Seventh South Streets. Snow removal is done between the hours of 4am to 6am. The previous snow storage location below German Park now has a new Public Utilities storage building.
