RC city council waiting on Kwik Trip plan

City Administrator Amy Mell gave an update regarding the Kwik Trip convenience store coming to Rush City at the Rush City Council meeting March 27.
Mell received a call from the surveyor about getting the preliminary plat turned in, and he stated that he is still working on it.
“All we can do now is wait until the plat is turned in and then schedule a public hearing,” Mell said. “We’re hoping to have a planning commission meeting the second week in April if I get it this week.”
The council recognized Rush City fourth-grader Autumn Stream for taking second place in the 2016 MSFCA Fire Prevention Poster Contest. The theme was “Don’t wait. Check the date! Replace smoke alarms every 10 years.” “It’s a statewide contest, so all of the fire departments send them in,” Mell said.
The council also discussed the firefighter training that took place in Rush City March 24-26. New members completed 26 to 30 hours of training. They trained Friday evening, all day Saturday until late, and finished around 1 p.m. Sunday. All of the new recruits passed, so they are done with firefighter one. They will do firefighter two sometime in April.
“Congratulations to our firefighters for completing firefighter one and a big thank you,” Mayor Dan Dahlberg said. “I know they gave their entire weekend to do this. Also, thank you to the other firefighters that helped and pitched in and did what they needed to do.”
