The Johnsburg Sanitary District Commission met on Tuesday, March 7th, 2006, at 9:00 a.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting the March monthly meeting. Members present were President Franz Schmitz, Commissioners Ken Schneider and Dennis Lefeber and Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider.
1. Call to order. President Schmitz called the meeting to order at 9:02 a.m.
2. Approval of meeting minutes. The Commission reviewed the minutes of the 2/7/06 and 2/15/06 meetings. Hearing no objections, the President declared the minutes approved a presented.
3. Consideration and possible action regarding the repair or replacement of a faulty lift station pump. The pump was re-installed three weeks ago on a Friday. LW Allen did not contact the District prior to re-installing the pump and has not contacted the District regarding what repairs were made to the pump. The Commission wants to be notified in the future when LW Allen intends to work on the Districtís equipment and the Commission wants documentation regarding what was done to the pump. It was noted that the pump is now running quietly well. Dennis Steigenberger, Foth & Van Dyke, has been in contact with PTS Contractors, Inc., regarding the pump issue. Apparently the repairs were covered under the 5-year extended warranty granted by PTS.
4. Discuss operational issues-odor complaints, grinder pump globes, etc. Don Moore, one of the Districtís Inspectors, has been asked to review the record drawings of the Districtís system to see if he can determine a solution to the odor issue. Mr. Moore has not gotten back to Brenda regarding his review. The Commission discussed whether or not additional vents or larger vents would help alleviate odors. It was also thought that odor crystals may be obstructing air flow out of some of the vents. Also, six homes still need to be connected in the Johnsburg Road/Schumacher Road area. The additional connections may help disperse the gas. Backflow preventers may also prevent gases from enter homes. Mrs. Clemens is experiencing severe problems with sewer gas in and around her home. Foth & Van Dyke will be contacted for assistance.
5. Status report on connections. The report was as follows: 111 permits have been issued, 98 of the 111 structures have been connected and 13 remain to be connected. A few properties are connected and using the system but have yet to complete the necessary internal work for final inspection.
The deadline for connection of gravity-served property was July 15th, 2005 and the deadline for properties served by grinder pumps was August 11th, 2005. Section 6.01 of the Districtís Sewer Use Ordinance authorizes the Commission to cause a connection to be made six months after the deadline date. The Commission will continue to monitor the connections.
6. Discuss the Districtís debt retirement schedule. For the past two taxing cycles, the Commission has levied more than what was needed for the annual debt payment with the intentions of paying more toward the principal balance. Rural Development will be contacted for directions on the steps needed to pay down the principal. Further consideration will be made at Aprilís meeting.
7. Status of the draft Operation & Maintenance Agreement with Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1. The draft agreement was submitted to Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1. TSD#1 has yet to respond.
8. Consideration and possible action to establish a fee for special meetings to be paid by the individual(s) requesting the special meeting. The ordinance would need to be amended. Further consideration will take place at the next meeting.
9. Approval of District bills. Dennis Lefeber motioned to approve the bills (order nos. 24-28), seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0).
10. Schedule the next meeting. The next meeting will be held on Monday, April 3rd, at 9:00 a.m.
11. Commissionersí reports and comments. Commissioner reported on the telephone threat form, suspicious activity form, NIHMS training, CMAR training and confined space training. The Commission will create an insert for the next billing cycle.
12. Adjournment. The meeting was adjourned at 10:45 a.m.
