NU City Council Meeting Recap 20 Nov 13

In a meeting that lasted less than 15 minutes Tuesday, the New Ulm City Council approved the adoption of the Brown County All-Hazard Mitigation Plan. The revised plan covers various hazards and disasters that could occur.  The approval of the plan is required by FEMA in order to be eligible for disaster grants. In other business Tuesday, the council adopted ordinances dealing with changes to zoning and city fees, including a dramatic increase in parking fines, and approved a delayed purchase agreement with a company hoping to construct apartments on South Minnesota Street in order to allow extra time for an environmental inspection of the property. The council also accepted an $800 donation from Target for the New Ulm Police Department and the “Shop With A Hero” Christmas program.
