After the full page ad that the Minnesota Child Protection League ran in the Star Tribune Sunday that read in part, “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are you OK with that?” the debate over the Minnesota State High School League’s discussion of transgender participation in sports has reached a fever pitch.

The MSHSL board is expected to vote on the issue on Thursday, Oct. 2.

“I strongly believe that this controversial issue up for will affect public and nonpublic school students negatively,” said state senator Paul Gazelka, who represents most of Morrison County. “By creating exceptions to allow for gender identity rather than biological sex to be the determining factor in student eligibility, MSHSL will effectively facilitate situations that will force opposite sex students, regardless of their comfort level with such situations, to share private facilities with each other, particularly at a very impressionable and formative time in their lives.”

Within the proposal it mentions that what the MSHSL board will vote on are “guidelines.”

MSHSL Media Specialist John Millea began tweeting factoids about the decision earlier today including: “Transgender policy would provide structure around an issue that already exists. Would not be a bylaw, would not be part of Handbook,” Millea tweeted via his @MSHSLjohn twitter handle.

The proposal includes several stipulations for the transgender athlete, and ultimately states that the final decision is to be made at the local level.

The biggest hole that Gazelka and the MCPL see in the proposal is a section near the end that states that “Transgender students should be able to use the locker room, shower, and toilet facilities in accordance with the student’s gender identity.”

However, it also says that “When possible, every locker room should have some private, enclosed changing areas, showers and toilets for use by any athlete who desires them.”

The ad in the Tribune urges parents to contact the MSHSL before a discussion on Oct. 1 and the subsequent vote on Oct. 2.

Minnesota is one of 18 states in the U.S. that does not have transgender guidelines or a policy for high school athletes.

AN ORDINANCE
REGULATING THE USE OF THE MUNICIPAL WATER SYSTEM IN THE CITY OF BOWLUS AND
PROVIDING PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION THEREOF.
The City Council of Bowlus ordains:
SECTION 1
The City has ordered the construction of a water system consisting of a pumping station and water mains. Forthwith, upon the completion of the improvements, the systems shall be operated as a public utility of the City, and the regulations and provisions of this ordinance shall be applicable thereto.
SECTION 2
Any party desiring water service from said utility for premises not theretofore connected with the system shall apply for a connection on a form provided by the City. Such application shall give an exact description of the premises to be served, and shall be filed, together with payment of the hookup or connection fee as established from time to time by the City Council by resolution, with the City Clerk for approval by the City Council.
SECTION 3
Any party other than the original applicant desiring water service for premises where a connection has been made pursuant to Section 2 hereof shall make written application therefore in the same manner as provided in Section 2.
SECTION 4
The cost of the original installation of all plumbing between the property line and all service devices maintained by the owner or occupant of the premises, and all extensions and repair made to such plumbing shall be borne entirely by such owner or occupant; but all extensions and repairs made to such plumbing and service devices shall at all reasonable times be subject to inspection by a duly authorized representative of the City. Any repairs found to be necessary by such representative shall be made promptly, and the City reserves the right to cause the same to be made and to charge the cost thereof to the owner or occupant of the premises and to collect the same in any manner now or hereafter permitted by the laws of the State of Minnesota.
SECTION 5
Building water mains and connections and street excavation relating thereto.
A. No building water main shall be built, repaired, extended or connected with the public water main without permit.
B. No building water main shall be built, repaired, extended or connected with the water main except by a plumber duly licensed by the Stat of Minnesota to perform the work, or by any other qualified person.
C. All applications for water main permits shall indicate the person employed to do the work.
D. All plumbing installations shall comply with the State Plumbing Code.
E. Upon issuance of the permit, the person to whom it is granted may proceed with the work in accordance with the permit granted. The applicant shall notify the City Clerk of the progress of the work at such state during construction as the City may direct, and in particular, shall notify the Clerk when the building water main is complete and ready for the connection with the water main. The City shall be given an opportunity to inspect the work after it is completed and shall require the work to be done satisfactorily and in compliance with the law before excavations are filed.
F. The City Council may, from time to time, by resolution, adopt regulations not inconsistent with this ordinance governing construction of the building water mains and connections to the public water main.
G. All excavations for building water mains installations shall be adequately guarded with barricades, lights and other appropriate warning devices so as to protect the public from hazard. Streets, alleys, sidewalks and other public property distributed in the course of the work shall be restored in manner satisfactory to the City.
H. The applicant shall indemnify and save harmless the City from any claims of injury, loss or damage to third parties arising out of the construction work; this provision is a condition to the issuance of the permit. The City may, as a condition to issuance of the permit, require the applicant to file a corporate surety bond for faithful performance of the work and to indemnify and save harmless the City from any negligence in performance, the bond to be for a period of two years.
SECTION 6
Service Charges
A. Water service charges will be established from time to time by the City Council, either by ordinance or by resolution.
B. An account for services will be kept for each user and a separate account for separate premises. Each user will be liable for service to his premises. Bills for service will be rendered quarterly and will be due within ten (10) days from their date, but failure of the City to render a bill or of user to receive a bill will not excuse payment. Bills will be mailed to users at the address shown on the application on the day of their date. The City Clerk will keep accounts and render the bills; he will receive payment of bills and give receipts therefore.
C. All water service charges, when collected, and all moneys received from the sale of any water facilities or equipment shall be placed in a separate fund and shall be used first to pay the normal, reasonable and current costs of operation and maintaining the facilities, and the balance shall be used as the Council may direct and as provided by law.
D. All water service charges are made a lien against the property served. The lien shall be valid against third parties after written notice of the lien, certified by the Clerk, is recorded in the office of the County Recorder for Morrison County. The City may also pursue any other remedies at law available to it for collection of the delinquent charges.
SECTION 7
All claims for defective service shall be made in writing and filed with the City Clerk on or before the 10th day of the month next succeeding such defective service, or be deemed waived by the claimant; and if such claims are so filed, it shall be the duty of the City Clerk to investigate the facts alleged in such claims and determine the amount if any which should be refunded to such claimant by reason of such defective service and report such determination to the City Council and, if approved by that body, such amount shall be made against the municipality for any fire or any injuries to the person or property if any consumer of water under the provisions hereof.
SECTION 8
The municipality reserves the right to discontinue service to any or all customers of the water system, without notice, when necessary for repairs or for disregard rules or regulations affecting the service. When service has been discontinued for non-payment of bills or for disregard of regulations, it shall not be resumed except upon payment of the bills, to be determined by the city council of Bowlus, full compliance with the regulations, and the payment to the City Clerk of a fee of five dollars ($5) for re-establishing service.

SECTION 10
