April 21st, 2008 Joint Meeting 2.
Operation and maintenance bills for 4th quarter 2007 are in need of discussion. Costs were incurred as part to the televising project TSD#1 began in 2006. Again, TSD#1 is exempting this expense from the cost-share because they consider the expense routine maintenance that was not done. TSD#1 intends to complete the televising of the final portion of the shared sewer this year. Once the televising is complete, TSD#1 anticipates cost-sharing future televising.
TSD#1 incurred a $300.00 charge for the removal of mineral deposits that were discovered during televising. TSD#1 requested cost-sharing the removal expense. A consensus of the Commissions of CSD, JSD and TSD#3 was to support cost-sharing the $300.00 charge and future televising done as on-going maintenance after the entire shared sewer has been televised.
Town Board Members Jerry Guelig and Mike Wirtz had to leave the meeting at this time.
Mike Immel, Rural Mutual Insurance, would be willing to give a presentation to the group at a future joint meeting. Brian Balson arrived at this time. TSD#1 would like to share the responsibilities; such as subcommittees comprised of one commission member from each district to review insurance policies and another to develop maintenance schedules, etc.
Mike Barreau, Hydrite Chemical Co., gave a presentation on his sulfide control system. The system neutralizes odors and prevents the formation of sulfide; which can corrode concrete in manholes. Mr. Barreau will perform tests to determine the level of treatment recommended and provide a proposal for each district.
Karen Schwengels had to leave the meeting at this time.
TSD#3 was able to speak personally with Matt Haefs, DOT, regarding the Winnebago Drive bridge project. Mr. Haefs corresponded his position via email as well. The project has gone through numerous years of planning and engineering. He indicated that the planning process is beyond making any adjustments to accommodate shifting the bridge project due to the force main sewer. Mr. Haefs will direct the engineers to provide the district with copies of any correspondence on file pertaining to contact with the districts impacted by the bridge project. He also indicated that he will check on any grant funding that may be available.
