Sewer System Maintenance.
1. Consideration and possible action regarding general maintenance and operational issues.
a. Run time/flow reports. September pump run time reports for all lift stations were distributed. Church Road flows remain erratic. There were noticeable increases in starts at every location during rain events.
b. Grinder pump and lift station pump issues. No issues to report at this time. It was noted that Victor will contact a plumber to determine where the sump pump and down spouts are plumbed to.
c. Televising and cleaning project. Green Bay Pipe & TV's report indicates tree roots in manhole #231. The material around the manhole needs to be excavated and a sealer applied to the exterior of the manhole. Jason Guelig will do this work in the near future.
d. Manhole inspection project. Mike Sabel plans to perform the inspections this year in the same area that was cleaned and televised this spring.
e. Other maintenance and operational issues. Nothing to report.
2. Residential Inspection Plan. The Inspection Team have been unsuccessful in re-inspecting the remaining five homes on Church Road and there are three prior year violations still outstanding. A reminder letter will be sent as soon as possible.
The Team has completed approximately 48 inspections this year; their percentage goal for the year.
1. Consideration and possible award of the Ledge Road meter station build-out. The following bids were received: $29,645.00 by D.E. Thome Electrical; $29,755.00 by Pieper Electric, Inc.; and, $31,688.00 by Helmer Electric Inc. Motion by Bill Gius, second by John Rickert, to award the contract to Helmer Electric, Inc., noting disqualification of bids from Thome and Pieper for failure to comply with bid submittal requirements. Motion carried (3-0).
2. Discuss Alliant's plan to cross Church Road laterals with a natural gas line. Natural gas is being installed on Church Road. They will directional bore the pipe. Planned depth is not pre-reported. The work should not affect the lift station; however, it is unknown if laterals will be impacted. More information is needed.
3. Status of Lender's waiver of financial audit requirement. Dan Hintze, National Exchange Bank & Trust, has submitted a list of requirements. Requirements include maintaining $450,000 in the Debt Service Account and bonding the Treasurer for $100,000.
Kathy Diederich, Schenck, updated the District's cash flow projections. Diederich finds the District in a sound financial position, and therefore fully capable of meeting NEBAT's conditions.
