APPROVAL OF MINUTES OF THE LAST MEETING
Motion by Bob Giese, second by John Rickert, to approve the minutes of the October 27th, 2016 meeting. Motion carried unanimously by voice vote.
SHARED SEWER REPAIR ISSUES
Televising and cleaning project.
FdL#2 was satisfied with Green Bay Pipe & TV. Three to four leaks were discovered that the Commission needs to address.
TSD#1 reported that they didn't find near the number of problems as in the past. They are awaiting Eric Otte's review of the reports. They believe there are a couple of problems that they will need to address.
TSD#1 plans to re-do televising in five years unless flow issues arise. They noted that all pipes have been inspected in the past couple of years and all manholes have been located, GPSed, and inspected. Significant manholes issues have been addressed via contract with Michels.
JSD is using Sabel Mechanical, LLC, for preventative maintenance and emergency response.
A couple of the districts have had equipment issues caused by hand-toweling or other fibrous materials getting caught in the impellors. JSD sent a letter to residents. The problem seems to have been resolved based upon the recent clean condition of the lift station.
JSD & TSD#3 have had recent issues with Missions reporting. The contractor reported sensor issues.
OSG EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT
There was discussion at the most last Executive Committee meeting regarding recent extreme increases in flow from all of the districts. Some districts increased as much as five times customary levels.
Staff at the treatment plant continue to experiment with various methods of phosphorus removal. They're trying to find non-mechanical means to reduce the phosphorus. Ammonia abatement is another issue. A Cleaner Winnebago is a seminar series that will help explain the goals of the project. It is offered from 6:30-8:00 at various locations on February 6th, 23rd, and March 14th. The true financial impact of the reduction of phosphorus is unknown at this time.
The group discussed the impact agricultural activities can have on the phosphorus level in the Lake. Some cities developed incentive programs that will impact surface water runoff from farm fields that eventually gets to the Lake.
Bob Giese departed at this time.
STATUS OF THE AMENDMENT TO THE FOND DU LAC SEWER SERVICE AREA
The towns and the City have finalized the Inter-municipal Boundary Agreement. It is expected that East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning will initiate the SSA amendment project during 2017. The goal is complete the 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.
The districts indicated an addendum to their current Agreements may be acceptable. Kathy Diederich asked that each district president make it a priority to reach out to TSD#1 President Mike Nett. A meeting was scheduled for Thursday, March 9th, at 5:00 p.m.
Review Quarterly billings
2016-4th qt. O&M bills planned to be included in the cost-share were follows:
• Work logs for the inspection and maintenance employees were reviewed.
• DE Thome Gladstone control panel & generator issues $80.00
• Total Energy Winnebago replaced communication boards $1,229.00

• JE Arthur unknown locations project admin $440.00
• JE Arthur unknown locations Secretarial, engineering, CAD $280.72
• Green Bay Pipe & TV unknown locations cleaning and televising $28,419.92
TSD#1 will distribute a copy of their Total Energy contract.
