The Johnsburg Sanitary District Commission met on Monday, July 10th, 2006, at 9:00 a.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting the July monthly meeting. Members present were President Franz Schmitz, Commissioners Dennis Lefeber and Ken Schneider and Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider.

2. Approval of meeting minutes. The Commission reviewed the minutes of the 6/6/06 meeting. 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. L.W. Allen has submitted a bill to the District for the repairs to the pump. The bill for $5,366.97 was returned to L.W. Allen with documentation of PTSís obligation to pay for the repairs.
4. Discuss operational issues. The Stemperís have recently connected to the system. They now have severe odor problems. Brian Schmitz will be directed to change the granules in the filters in the metering station. The Commission continues to question the engineering of the system. Franz will contact Foth.
5. Status report on connections. The report was as follows: 112 permits have been issued, 104 of the 112 structures have been connected and received final inspection and 8 remain to be finalized. 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. Franz will contact Agri-Land Coop regarding the completion of their connection.
6. Status of the draft Operation & Maintenance Agreement with Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1. The draft agreement was submitted to Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 in August 2005. TSD#1 recently submitted a counter-offer to Attorney John St. Peter. The Commission intends to have a joint agreement with all of the districts. Also, the Commission does not intend to sign an agreement based upon pump-run-times. In an attempt to settle the issue, the Commission wishes to proceed with a meeting of all of the affected districts and their attorneys. Franz has compiled a list of comments/revisions pertaining to TSD#1ís counter-offer.
Karen Schwengels, recently appoint to the TSD#1 Commission and in attendance, suggested providing the entire TSD#1 Commission with clearly written preferences/comments pertaining to the Agreement.
Franz suggested incorporating a sunset clause that would require renegotiation at a specific period.
Ken Schneider motioned to submit the comments on the Agreement as compiled by President Schmitz to the Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 Commission, seconded by Dennis Lefeber. Motion carried (3-0).
7. Approval of District bills. Dennis Lefeber motioned to approve the bills (order nos. 55-65), seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0). The cost-share for the Luco Road lift station will not be paid until Ron Cunzenheim concludes his research into the generator matter.
8. Schedule the next meeting. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 1st, at 9:00 a.m.
9. Commissionersí reports and comments. Some residents have asked Commissioners about the process used to appoint commissioners. Also, the Commission will inform the residents that revenue generated from new constructions/connections goes to pay down the Districtís debt. An insert will be distributed in the next user charge billing explaining both matters.
The Commission acknowledged the timely submittal of the Districtís CMAR and signed the certificate.
10. Adjournment. The President declared the meeting adjourned at 10:14 a.m.
