MINUTES

JOHNSBURG SANITARY DISTRICT
MONTHLY COMMISSION MEETING
AUGUST 2, 2016
10:00 A.M.
TAYCHEEDAH TOWN HALL


Members present: President Franz Schmitz and Commissioners Ken Schneider and Dennis Lefeber. Also present: Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider.

1. Call to order. Chairman Schmitz called the meeting to order at 10:01 a.m.

2. Approval of the minutes of the 7/11/16 meeting. Hearing no objections, President Schmitz declared the minutes approved as distributed.

3. Discussion and possible action regarding operational issues:
a. Johnsburg Lift Station. No issues to discuss at this time.
b. Grinder pump stations. The Duwells had issues during a recent weekend. Doug Sabel responded. A verbal report from Sabel indicated reoccurring problems may be caused by inappropriate cable lengths on the floats. Sabel plans to order cables in the appropriate lengths and install them as soon as reasonably possible.
c. Odor issues. The Commission is awaiting a report on the level of sulfide gas at the meter station.
d. Cleaning and televising project. The Outlying Sewer Group solicited bids, on behalf of several members, for televising and cleaning. Green Bay Pipe & TV, LLC, was the lowest bidder at $0.30 per linear foot for cleaning and $0.36 per foot for televising. The Commission took previous action to accept the bid and Eric Otte, OSG Engineer, was notified.
Green Bay Pipe & TV has postponed the work to the fall due to non-receipt of executed proposals. Otte recently distributed said proposals. Motion by Dennis Lefeber, second by Ken Schneider, to execute the proposal for the cleaning and televising of 7,713 linear feet of sewer main, at a cost of $5,090.58. Motion carried (3-0).
e. Consideration and possible award of an Agreement for Emergency Response and Preventative Maintenance services. The Request for Proposals (RFP) was submitted to JF Ahern, Sabel Mechanical and Pat Mand Trenching & Boring. A notice was also published in The Reporter. Sabel Mechanical was the only bidder to submit a proposal.
Doug Sabel explained, at a previous meeting, that he has the equipment and trained staff capable of providing the services as outlined in the RFP, including the 24/7 emergency response. Sabel's quote was $87.00 per hour for an estimated 266 hours annually plus $3,835.00 for cleanings, pumping and calibrating. Total annual expense estimated to be $23,497.00. The hourly rate is based upon Doug doing the work.
Sabel indicated that he has an individual interested in doing the preventative maintenance work. This individual operates the Allenton treatment plant. If this individual does the work, the rate would decrease to $35.00 per hour. Total expense estimated to be $13,145.00. Mileage would not be charged and the labor rate would begin when the individual leaves Sabel's shop.
Motion by Dennis Lefeber, second by Ken Schneider, to accept the verbal proposal by Sabel Mechanical for the one-year option, under the condition the rate for preventative maintenance and emergency response is no more than $35.00 per hour, inclusive of mileage, with the rate to begin upon departure from the Sabel shop, service to be effective immediately. Motion carried (3-0). Sabel was directed to re-submit a proposal with the $35.00 rate for execution. The Commission is awaiting the revised proposal.
f. Other operational issues. Nothing to report at this time.

4. Status of the Agreement for the Allocation of Costs and Transportation of Wastewater Between Sanitary District No. 1 of the Town of Taycheedah and Johnsburg Sanitary District. The Presidents of Taycheedah Sanitary District #3, Johnsburg Sanitary District and Calumet Sanitary District met a couple of times last winter to discuss the Agreement. The group requested a cost-share comparison illustrating the difference between the two methods of apportionment.
During the most-recent Joint Sanitary Districts' meeting, Kathy Diederich dispersed an analysis of flows at each lift station. Operation and maintenance bills are shared based upon percentage of flow at the Winnebago Drive lift station. Using 1Q 2016 flows, Johnsburg's percentage is 3.96%. If O&M billing was calculated based upon flows at each lift station, Johnsburg would pay 8.1% of expenses at the Gladstone lift station, 5.65% at the Brookhaven lift station and 3.96% at the Winnebago Drive lift station.

5. Approval of District bills. Motion by Dennis Lefeber, second by Ken Schneider, to approve the bills, (order nos. 68-78) totaling $3,036.67, and authorize the following transfer:
$3,000.00 from the Operations/User Charge Account to the regular checking account,
$1,224.52 from Operations/User Charge Account to the Debt Service Account, and
$111.32 from the Operations/User Charge Account to the Reserve for Replacement Account.
Motion carried (3-0).

6. Schedule the next meeting. The next Commission meeting will be conducted on Tuesday, September 13th, at 10:00 a.m.

7. Adjournment. President Schmitz declared the meeting adjourned at 10:55 a.m.
