Holstein council approves nuisance abatement proposal with Absolute Inspection Services

The Holstein City Council approved a nuisance abatement/building inspection proposal and utility increases May 7.

After discussion, the council approved an agreement with Absolute Inspection Services to conduct nuisance abatements and building inspections for a one-year trial at a rate of $50 per hour, plus mileage (53.5-cents per mile).

City Administrator Kay Hanson introduced Dave Christensen and told the council that city hall is already receiving calls daily, concerning nuisances. “Last year, city hall staff spent 30 to 40 hours a week sending out letters, taking pictures and handling nuisance abatements. I contacted Christensen and asked him to present a proposal to do the service, but, ultimately, it’s up to you.”
