APPROVAL OF MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING
Motion by Franz Schmitz, second by Dan Weber, to approve the minutes of the January 28th, 2016 meeting. Motion carried unanimously by voice vote.
SHARED SEWER REPAIR ISSUES
Town of Fond du Lac Sanitary District #2 distributed a detailed invoice related to the DOT's contractor making adjustments to manholes during the re-construction of Winnebago Drive. The State billed FDL#2 $30,783.99 for the work. FDL#2 offset their payment to the State equivalent to the $6,995.23 cost of cleaning and televising the project area.
The cost-share of the expense, based upon capacity owned in October, 2015, as determined by Ron Cunzenheim, is as follows:
• CSD $5,964.47
• JSD $1,234.24
• TSD#3 $9,346.64
• TSD#1 $8,978.16
• Taycheedah $1,545.79
• FDL#2 $3,714.69
FDL#2 acknowledged the inability to collect the Town of Taycheedah portion until such time as a district purchases the capacity currently held by the Town.
At this point, JSD and TSD#3 have made payment to FDL#2.
FDL#2 is planning to televise 8,307 feet of sewer in conjunction with the OSG combined bid. The last time they televised was in 2010. They plan to develop a routine cleaning/televising schedule.
Bob Giese departed at this time (5:14 p.m.).
The group further discussed televising. The consensus was to contact FDL#2 & Eric Otte suggesting Winnebago Drive be done by Green Bay Pipe & TV.
OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS
Discuss amendments to the Agreements
TSD#1 has distributed redline/strikeout versions of the draft revised Agreements. Their goal is to have consistency amongst the three districts using the system and to use metered flows at the three lift station for O&M billings. The presidents of the three participating districts have yet to meet for the purpose of developing their response to TSD#1. Calumet Sanitary District President Dick Wehner is wintering in the south and is in the process of retiring; therefore, it is not expected that he will participate in future negotiations.
The group discussed having Eric Otte, OSG Engineer, review the document on behalf of all districts involved. TSD#1 was under the understanding that Mr. Otte is currently reviewing it.
The districts are awaiting a cost analysis using the current and the alternative billing methods. TSD#1 was under the impression that Kathy Diederich is in the process of compiling said analysis. President Nett indicated that he will submit a formal directive to Ms. Diederich.
Review Quarterly billings
2016-1st qt. O&M bills planned to be included in the cost-share were distributed. TSD#1 indicated that Kathy Diederich did not submit the data to them for preliminary review. Review of the bills was postponed to the next meeting.
OSG EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT
The Town of Taycheedah Town Board has approved the Utility Location Ordinance. It is unknown if the other town boards have done so.
The OSG Executive Committee will be asked to develop a standardized permit application form. It was suggested that the application require submittal of construction drawings as an attachment. It was also suggested that the OSG notify all of the utilities on behalf of the districts.
STATUS OF THE AMENDMENT TO THE FOND DU LAC SEWER SERVICE AREA
The Boundary Agreement is nearing completion. The mapping has been completed and the final proposed document language is expected soon. Once the Agreement is adopted by all parties, the amendments to the Sewer Service Area will move forward.
CSD inquired about who pays for sewer main extensions. By ordinance, all parties present require the requester pay the costs.
Motion by Franz Schmitz, second by Dan Weber, to adjourn at 5:51 p.m. Motion carried unanimously by voice vote.
