Nevis Muni to host February hotdish fundraiser

The Nevis Muni will be the site of its first annual hotdish contest during Presidents' Weekend.

In true Minnesota let's- liven-up-February tradition, municipal liquor store manager Mark Peterson is putting out a call for casseroles.

The event, benefiting the Nevis Dollars for Scholars fund, will feature judging from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. (a buck buys a ballot) with cash prizes awarded for first and second and non-cash items for third through fifth.

In other action at Monday night's meeting, the council:

-Reported municipal liquor store earnings of $3,193 in December, $21,930 net income in 2009.

-Accepted the resignations of Dan Rehkamp and Brian Halik from the Nevis Fire Department.

-Appointed council members to the following commissions and designations: Cammy Johnson, fire; Paul Schroeder, police and assistant mayor; Dave McCurnin, liquor store, administration, sewer and water; and Heidi Schmeichel, parks and cemetery.

-Approved, at the recommendation of the Planning Commission, a minor subdivision zoning amendment request from Bob Lindow.

-Approved advertising for the deputy clerk position.

-Learned 15 students participated in the snowmobile safety course, led by deputy Jeff Stacey.
