Motion by Franz Schmitz, second by Ken Schneider, to approve the minutes of the July 28th, 2016 meeting. Motion carried unanimously by voice vote.
SHARED SEWER REPAIR ISSUES
JSD reported on odor complaints during the recent cleaning and televising project. Ken Schneider explained that water was sucked out of traps causing gas to enter homes, turned copper pipes black and tarnished sterling silver.
Doug Sabel, Sabel Mechanical, LLC, reported on his pending agreement with a couple of districts to perform preventative maintenance services. He has developed a price list.
Sabel would like to keep spare pumps and supplies at his shop due to concern of access to the Town Hall. Districts expressed their position of maintaining their stock of equipment and supplies at the Town Hall. It was suggested to Sabel that he inventory spare pumps, noting that JSD and TSD#3 pumps are compatible.
OSG EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT
The most recent meeting lacked sufficient attendance for a quorum.
Staff at the treatment plant continue to experiment with various methods of phosphorus removal.
STATUS OF THE AMENDMENT TO THE FOND DU LAC SEWER SERVICE AREA
The Inter-municipal Boundary Agreement is near completion.
The goal is complete the SSA amendments by 2020.
OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS
Discuss amendments to the Agreements
A few years ago, TSD#1 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 billing purposes.
In response to the request of the presidents of the three districts, a cost analysis using the current and the alternative billing methods was compiled by Kathy Diederich. The analysis was distributed at the July 28th, 2016, meeting.
Operations and maintenance expenses are shared based upon percentage of total flow at the Winnebago Drive lift station. Using 1st quarter 2016 flows, the percentage of flows at each station for each district were as follows:
District Winnebago Dr. Brookhaven Gladstone Beach
Calumet San. Dist. 21.32% 30.43% 43.61%
Johnsburg San. Dist. 3.96% 5.65% 8.10%
Taycheedah San. Dist. #3 30.07% 22.65%
Taycheedah San. Dist. #1 44.66% 41.27% 48.3%
Based upon this analysis, as illustrated above, CSD and JSD would realize an increase in cost-share percentage at Brookhaven and Gladstone, while TSD#3 would have a reduction in cost-share percentage at Brookhaven.
Some of the districts indicated an addendum to their current Agreements may be acceptable. The districts will address the matter internally.
