Other business that came before the Upsala City Council included:
• Approving a building permit as modified for William Schultz to extend an addition to the south side of his home. He will be pouring a slab and building a ramp for handicapped accessibility;
• Approving the purchase of a used sewer jetter at a cost not to exceed $9,500 plus tax;
• Agreeing to install speed signs on Hillcrest and Oak streets, following a resident’s request to control speeding;
• Approving a bid from Central Minnesota Paving for $11,500 to pave a 100-foot by 24-foot section of Tower Road;
• Approving a donation of $350 to the Initiative Foundation, in response to an annual letter requesting funds;
• Discussing the possibility of spraying for mosquitoes in town, especially prior to Heritage Days. The consensus was that the Council was not convinced of the benefit of that, since the weather has been dry.
The next Upsala City Council meeting will be Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. in the city offices at the Fire Hall.
