MINUTES

The Johnsburg Sanitary District Commission met on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007, at 9:00 a.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting their January monthly meeting. Members present were President Franz Schmitz, Commissioners Dennis Lefeber and Ken Schneider and Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider. Also present was Brian Schmitz, District Maintenance Personnel.

1. Call to order. President Schmitz called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m.
2. Approval of meeting minutes. The Commission reviewed the minutes of the 12/5/06 meeting. Hearing no objections, the President declared the minutes approved as presented.
3. Discuss operational issues. Brian Schmitz reported that the runtime on Pump 2 is again increasing. Brian will do an amperage reading. There may be an obstruction.
Filters have been installed at the Schneiderhan’s property.
4. Status report on connections. The report was as follows: 113 permits have been issued. All 113 structures are connected to the collection system. The inspectors report that only one home needs to obtain final inspection approval. The Commission had established an August 15th deadline for the completion of this work. The owner will be notified in writing that the interior work needs to be completed by 2/6/07 or penalties will be levied.
5. Consideration and possible action to penalize property owners for failure to complete connections. Section 6.05(A) states in summary that Any person who shall violate any of the provisions of this Ordinance or rules or regulations of the District;…or who shall violate any provisions of the Wisconsin Statutes, Wisconsin Administrative Codes…shall upon conviction thereof forfeit not less than $100.00 nor more than $1,000 and the costs of prosecution. Each day shall constitute a violation. The Commission will await the inspector’s report before taking such action.
6. Review of remaining treatment plant capacity. Johnsburg Sanitary District purchased 138 RUEs of capacity from the Town of Taycheedah. The District currently has allocated 119.5 RUEs to existing structures. The District has also allocated 5 RUEs to existing laterals to vacant lots and one RUE for the primitive cottage on Mengel Hill Road. The District has 12.5 RUEs remaining in yet to be identified service locations for the next fourteen years. The Town of Taycheedah currently owns 420 RUEs of capacity. The Commission reviewed estimated costs for the purchase of additional capacity. It was noted that the estimates do not include the additional cost-share in the treatment plant upgrade or additional capacity in the Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 and Fond du Lac Sanitary District No. 2 interceptors. Dennis Lefeber motioned to proceed with the purchase of an additional 20 RUEs of capacity using remaining grant funds, seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0).
7. Discuss a possible sewer extension on Meyer Court. The consensus of the Commission was to support the addition of eight lots at the end of Meyer Court. The Commission has advised Mr. Meyer to petition the Taycheedah Town Board for a residential rezone before pursuing the issue further. President Schmitz wishes to speak to the Sanitarian about the extension process. He will also contact East Central Regional Planning.
8. Consideration and possible approval of a letter to the City of Fond du Lac acknowledging the District’s financial responsibility for its share of the Water Pollution Control Plant, per the 200 Wastewater Agreement. Ken Schneider motioned to approve, sign and submit the letter to the City of Fond du Lac, seconded by Dennis Lefeber. Motion carried (3-0).
9. Review remaining grant funds. Rural Development is holding $8,710.52 in grant funds for the District. Rural
Development will consider authorizing the application of the funds toward the purchase of additional capacity and to cost-sharing with the Calumet Fire Dept. for the purchase of safety equipment if an agreement is approved between the parties that would outline the equipment to be purchased and its costs, the storage of the equipment, access to and repair of the equipment and future replacement of the equipment. The Commission and the Fire Dept. will review a draft agreement.
10. Review a draft Agreement with Calumet Fire Dept. for the purchase of confined space safety equipment. Brenda Schneider and Brian Schmitz drafted a proposed agreement indicating a 50/50 cost-share for purchase, maintenance and repair. The estimated cost of the equipment, without a gas meter, is $7,002.00. There was discussion regarding possibly partnering with other sanitary districts. The Fire Dept. will contact Taycheedah Sanitary Districts No. 1, No. 3 and Calumet Sanitary District.


January 2nd, 2007 Johnsburg Sanitary District 2.
Monthly Meeting

11. Consideration and possible action regarding the request from Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1 to cost share in their generator project. TSD#1 is again requesting each upstream district and the Town of Taycheedah to reimburse them for a proportional cost of their generator project. Franz Schmitz motioned to again deny the request to cost-share in TSD#1’s generator project, seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0).
12. Discuss Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1’s debt to the Town of Taycheedah. The Town of Taycheedah funded the first three years of TSD#1’s expenses. The same courtesy was extended to Johnsburg Sanitary District. However, unlike JSD, TSD#1 never repaid the Town. The total expended to TSD#1 was $18,190.87; which escalated to today’s present value of money equates to $100,064.04. President Schmitz has asked the Taycheedah Town Board for the repayment of $257,347.55; which was the total expended on behalf of Johnsburg Sanitary District.
13. Consideration and possible acceptance of a Letter of Understanding with Village Accounting to Provide Accounting Services. It was noted that the hourly fee will increase from $30.00 to $35.00. Dennis Lefeber motioned to accept the Letter of Understanding, seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0).
14. Approval of District bills. Dennis Lefeber motioned to approve the bills totaling $3,767.53 (order nos. 1-5), seconded by Ken Schneider. Motion carried (3-0).
15. Schedule the next meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for February 6th, 9:00 a.m.. It was noted that the Fond du Lac City Council will meet for a workshop meeting on January 24th, 6:00 p.m., to discuss Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 1’s request to purchase additional capacity.
