Fertile, MN — The Fertile City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. At the meeting, the council got an update on the city owned Fair Meadow Nursing Home, who has seen positive cases in recent weeks. Fertile City Administrator Lisa Liden says while they are facing a staffing shortage, they are getting by for the time being.

The council approved the final disbursements of their CARES Funding. Administrator Liden says they were able to find uses for all of their provided funds.

Under the airport committee, the Fertile City Council got an update on the paving project. Liden notes they were unable to get that finished before winter, but were able to find some alternatives to keep it open over the winter. 

And the city is exploring the idea of potentially purchasing a new pay loader to assist with snow removal needs in the future as well.

The Fertile City Council also accepted the resignation of councilmember Linda Windrig, who submitted her resignation shortly after last month’s meeting. The terms or reasoning behind her resignation were not known. The council will look to appoint someone to fill her spot.
