The Johnsburg Sanitary District Commission met on Tuesday, February 6th, 2007, at 9:00 a.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall, for the purpose of conducting their February monthly meeting. Members present were President Franz Schmitz, Commissioners Dennis Lefeber and Ken Schneider and Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider.
1. Call to order. President Schmitz called the meeting to order at 9:04 a.m.
2. Oath of Office. The Oath of Office was administered to Dennis Lefeber for a six-year term.
3. Approval of meeting minutes. The Commission reviewed the minutes of the 1/2/07 meeting. Hearing no objections, the President declared the minutes approved as presented.
4. Review insurance coverage with Rural Mutual Insurance. Mike Immel, agent, gave the following overview of the District’s insurance coverage:
• Covered equipment includes the grinder pump stations, lift stations, meter station, vent pipes, odor control units and office contents,
• 6% automatic inflation guard on the policy,
• $4,000,000 liability per year,
• $2,000,000 liability per event,
• $5,000 for medical expenses,
• $100,000 for damage to rented property, and
• Workman’s Comprehensive Insurance.
5. Discuss operational issues. It was reported that Pump 2 at the Cty. Q lift station is running well. It was assumed to have a blockage that recently caused the runtimes to differ.
The gas problems at the Schneiderhan’s property have decreased due to the replacement of a cracked toilet and the installation of a filter on the vent pipe.
6. Status report on connections. All connections have been finalized and all necessary inspections have been completed.
7. Status of remaining treatment plant capacity. The Commission took official action to pursue purchasing 20 additional RUEs of treatment plant capacity at their January meeting. The Commission discussed the timing of the purchase. The Commission consensus was to finalize the purchase as soon as possible. Ron Cunzenheim recommends purchasing the equivalent down-stream sewer capacity in the near future. Ron will be asked for quotes.
8. Status of a possible sewer extension on Meyer Court. Jason Meyer has yet to petition the Taycheedah Town Board for a rezone to residential. Also, East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is requesting the swap of 15.75 acres in order to add the Meyer property into the District’s sewer service area.
9. Status of the draft Agreement with Calumet Fire Dept. for the purchase of confined space safety equipment. No update was available. Chief Brian Schmitz will be asked to attend the next meeting.
10. Consideration and possible acceptance of a Letter of Understanding for auditing services with Schenck Business Solutions, Inc. Ken Schneider motioned to accept the Letter of Understanding, with the name corrected in the body of the letter, seconded by Dennis Lefeber. Motion carried (3-0).
