The first Zumba session was held in the Rutland Community Center on Sunday, November 3rd. About twenty area residents – both young and old – came out for the exercise session and to have some fun. Zumba is a total-body exercise that is good for core strengthening and flexibility, so every participant gets a good workout. If you missed the first session be sure to join the group on the first Sunday of the month. Where else can you have a fun workout for only $1.00 per person?
The Rutland City Council held its regular meeting on Monday, November 4, with all members present. The City Engineer discussed the recent Emergency Lagoon project that has been completed. The Council approved payment to DL Barkie Construction to cover the work done to date. A final payment will be made in the spring to ensure that all work meets project specifications, and that the seeded grass emerges. There is a soft spot in the area; the contractor will make any necessary repairs or corrections needed in the spring. The City received the Community Development Block (CDBG) grant of $116,400 to cover the contractor expense. The first request for payment of $82,527.00 under the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) was approved and received in October from the Bank of North Dakota to cover other project expenses. The Council approved the payment of bills and adopted the 2020 meeting calendar continuing with meetings on the first Monday of each month at 5 p.m. except for September due to the Labor Day Holiday. The next Council meeting will be Monday, December 2.
