NU City Council Meeting Preview 18 Feb 14

The New Ulm City Council will be re-visiting the issue of noise complaints concerning New Ulm Steel and Recycling during its meeting this (TUE) evening. At least four explosions have occurred at the facility since a metal shredder was installed there last year due to fuel tanks being left in vehicles, and the company was installing a barrier to cut down on noise and prevent debris from going airborne. The Council will be discussing whether further noise abatement requirements are needed. In other business, the council will set a date for a Public Hearing on 2014 Utility Street and Alley Improvements to address the numerous reconstructions of existing water main, sanitary sewer and road repairs scheduled to take place this year. Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting starts at 5pm at New Ulm City Hall.
