Ada City Council News & Notes from April 6th Meeting
Ada, MN — The Ada City Council held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday night, April 6th. Starting off the meeting was the Citizen’s Forum, where Dr. Dave Resnick, owner of Prairie Dental, spoke to the council about concerns regarding parking as the new owner of the lot across the street had informed him his employees could not park there anymore. However, Ada Mayor John Hintz informed Dr. Resnick any parking changes would have to be cleared by the council, and nothing yet has been brought forward. Resnick also was disappointed that the lot was sold at lower price than he had inquired about previously. However, Councilman Shawn Roux says there was never a formal purchase brought forward to the full council.
The Ada City Council also discussed liquor license fees. Last year to assist those establishments impacted by the COVID-19 business restrictions, they charged a flat $1 fee for all forms of liquor licenses. Roux says at this week’s meeting they approved doing the same again this year.
The council considered an offer from an individual looking to purchase a lot in the north industrial park. Details of the individual were scarce, but it was made known that the lot would be used for their trucking company. Councilmember Crystal Stene says they approved their offer.
And in the department reports, Roux noted that the Dekko Center is still waiting on materials to complete repairs.
The Ada City Council also approved a $300 donation towards the 1st Annual Cody Holte Memorial Softball Tournament and approved a donation for the upcoming Bike Rodeo in May.
