Sewer System Maintenance.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding general maintenance and operational issues.
a. Run time/flow reports. The run times at the Cty QQ lift station suffered an electronic glitch. Extremely high run times were reported. Hal Henderson has been informed and has addressed the issue.
The run times at the Church Road lift station have been erratic for the past few months. The home inspection team has checked all of the houses with the exception of five of them. One location noted issues with a sticking toilet; it is unknown at this time if the leak has been addressed. The team is also re-checking sump pumps and softeners. They will continue to attempt contact with the remaining five homeowners.
On February 14th, the Team attempted inspection of the remaining five homes. The owner of one of these homes was extremely obnoxious. A letter will be sent.
A site inspection of the lift station will be done in the spring.
b. Missions monitoring and alarm system. Communications from the system have improved since the installation of the Verizon chips.
c. Manhole inspections. Mike Sabel will perform the inspections in the spring.
d. Fabricate and install stabilization to pump guide rails. Mike Sabel will obtain a quote for this project.
e. Grinder pump issues. A new stand-by pump has been ordered.
The Fife pump has been re-built but has yet to be re-installed. The property has reportedly sold. It is unknown when the pump will be needed by the homeowner. The grinder pump at Fife's accumulated 1,100 hours of operation since the last time it needed to be repaired. The house was vacant most, if not all, of the time since the repair.
November 3rd, the Endres grinder pump station experienced operational problems. Maintenance and repair staff had to install the standby pump. The original pump has been repaired. Response and repair costs may be billed to the homeowner. The matter will be further discussed during the March meeting.
The Lindburg pump has been experiencing mechanical issues in the control panel. Mike & Bud Sabel believe they have corrected the problem. Bud Sabel has some spare parts on-hand.
f. Treatment Plant phosphorus limits. The City has developed a rather successful method to reduce phosphorus. It is hoped the method will postpone or eliminate another forced expensive modification to the treatment plant.
g. Other maintenance and operational issues. Per President Gius' request, Ron Cunzenheim provided a list of other possible vendors.
2. Residential Inspection Plan. See item #1a above.
1. Discuss the Agreement for the Allocation of Costs and Transportation of Wastewater Between Sanitary District No. 1 of the Town of Taycheedah and the Town of Taycheedah Sanitary District No. 3. The Presidents of Taycheedah Sanitary District #3, Johnsburg Sanitary District and Calumet Sanitary District plan to meet in April to review the draft documents.
2. Discuss possible detachment of the Spies property, N8003 Hwy. 151. Spies plans to pursue detachment from the Sanitary District for financial reasons. Mr. Spies has been supplied with the necessary documentation to be filed with the Town Board. The documents are yet to be executed and returned. The Commission plans to develop an economic impact statement prior to making a recommendation to the Town Board regarding the request.
1. Taycheedah Sanitary District #1 Operation & Maintenance billings. The Commission needs to compile their list of objections and submit it to President Nett.
Public Comment. None.
Adjournment. Motion by John Rickert, second by Bill Gius, to adjourn the meeting at 5:04 p.m. Motion carried (3-0).
