Sewer System Maintenance Report.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding maintenance and operational issues. John Rickert reported that he and Bud Sabel inspected several manholes. There is significant grease build-up from Perl's to the corner of Billene Drive. John estimates that flow capacity is decreased by 50%. The sewer main needs to be jetted. Mike Sabel will contact G&H for the work.
Bill Gius arrived at this time.
It was verified that Perl's Country Inn has a grease trap. The Commission will request copies of Perl's maintenance records pertaining to the grease trap and request that he has it cleaned as soon as possible.
2. Residential inspection plan by area and schedule. Home inspections were not performed during the past month due to manhole inspections.
3. Status of maintenance staff position. The Commission reviewed three applications received to date. Motion by Bill Gius, second by John Rickert, to expedite filling the position, to economize costs, and to keep the position in-house for a period of one-year, hereby appoint Mike Sabel to the position; which would include the compensation awarded to the position. Motion carried (2-0). Abstained-Mike Sabel.
1. Discuss completing the remaining issues that pertain to the construction of the sewer collection system.
a. Wehner easement. The former District's legal counsel had the issue in process. Attorney Sharpe will no longer be able to see this matter to completion. Lud Wurtz, the District's new attorney, will need to complete the process.
2. Discuss shared sewer capacity. This matter was not discussed.
3. Discuss engineering firm transition. The District will contact Foth to arrange the pick-up of its records.
1. Discuss sewer service to the Fr. Wally property. Fr. Wally's property is for sale. The District has been contacted regarding the use of new on-site systems on the property.
The District originally planned to extend the sewer 1,470 feet to the two existing homes. However, per Fr. Wally and the Esser's request submitted in fall of 2002, the Commission took action to not extend the sewer. The landowners at that time planned to sell simultaneously to a developer; at which time the developer would be required to extend the sewer. It was also noted that the District's ordinance prohibits the use of on-site septic systems within the service area. The consensus of the Commission was to support the plan established by the Commission, Fr. Wally and the Essers in 2002.
August 15th, 2012 Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3 2.
Jamie Fiebig now owns the Esser properties, an improved parcel and a vacant parcel, both of which are land-locked. The Fiebigs purchased the properties in 2006. They have the vacant lot for sale with the claim that a home can be built on the lot using an on-site septic system. The Commission informed the Fiebigs that an on-site system could be used on the lot; however, once the sewer is extended, the owner would be required to connect no matter how much time has passed.
2. Approval of bills. Motion by Bill Gius, second by Mike Sabel, to pay all bills as presented, (order nos. 64-68), totaling $1,106.75, and to authorize the following:
• Transfer $1,100.00 from the Operations/User Charge Account to the regular checking account.
Motion carried (3-0).
Public Comment. None was presented.
Adjournment. Bill Gius moved to adjourn the meeting at 5:43 p.m., seconded by John Rickert. Motion carried (3-0).
