Mtn. View City Council to consider leasing baseball field


The Mtn. View City Council will meet in regular session at 6 p.m. Tuesday in council chambers of city hall, 120 N. Oak St.

Agenda items under new business include two bills proposing city ordinance amendments and a presentation from Mtn. View Fire Chief Jason Taber regarding a conservation grant. Council members are expected to hold discussions regarding concrete bids for the city pool, the purchase of a brush mower, and the Columbus Day holiday.

Following the approval of the consent agenda at the top of the meeting, which includes bills, previous meeting minutes and monthly department reports, the council will move into old business. On the agenda, chamber officials will give an update and Robin McCullough will apprise council members of ongoing planning for Buck Nelson Days, a festival to coincide with the April 2024 total solar eclipse.

Also on the agenda under old business are two bills: The first, a proposed resolution, would authorize an agreement between the city and Mtn. View-Birch Tree School district to lease the Herb Henry Baseball field, a proposal pitched by the school district during the August council meeting. During that meeting, it was proposed to enact a 20-year lease agreement between the two parties, at the request of Assistant Superintendent Ryan Chowning with the school district, with a pledge by the district to make improvements to the field, including new bleachers, lighting and fencing, as well as field and property maintenance.

The second bill, a proposed ordinance up for its second reading and final approval, would raise fire department charges for nonmembers.

Mayor John Krasuski will conclude the open session with his Mayor’s Minutes. A closed session will be held following to discuss personnel matters.
