Members present: President Bill Gius and Commissioners John Rickert and Mike Sabel. Also present: Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider, Hal Henderson and Mike Immel.

Pledge of Allegiance. The Commission dispensed with Pledge of Allegiance.

Motion carried (3-0).
Hal Henderson, Synergy Sales, Missions reporting system. Recently, there were issues at a lift station. The Commissioners did not receive notifications from Missions via their cellphones. Hal will check the locations and the programming. Hal will also schedule a training session with the Commission to review the system capabilities.
Mike Immel, Rural Mutual Ins., annual review and discussion of insurance coverage. Immel review insurance coverage. A possible equipment breakdown claim was also discussed.
Sewer System Maintenance:
1. Consideration and possible action regarding general maintenance and operational issues.
a. Run time/flow reports. December's pump run time reports for all lift stations were distributed and reviewed.
b. Lift stations and grinder pump stations. Two new pumps for the Church Road lift station have recently been installed by Sabel Mechanical. It was noted that a few days ago, one of the new pumps at the Church Road lift station did not report pump run time, as recorded by the Missions system. Sabel Mechanical will check it tomorrow.
One of the used pumps from Church Road was planned for installation at Cty QQ as a replacement to the pump that went down at that location on or before November 16th. However, Sabel Mechanical was unable to install the former Church Rd pump at QQ due to the fact that the pump was not compatible. The QQ station requires 3-phase compatible motors.
In the meantime, the second pump went down the first weekend in January at QQ. Missions did not alert the Commissioners of the severity of the problem. The pump was pulled on Sunday, January 8th. A mophead was found entangled in the impellor and fibrous material was wadded around the chain. A mophead was also found in the impellor of the first pump that went down. A warning letter will be sent to the homes that use this system regarding the costly impact of flushing foreign materials.
c. Other maintenance and operational issues. The Commission discussed the impending transition from the Town Hall to the Recording Secretary's home and changing of the mailing address.
President Gius summarized the OSG Executive Committee meeting. The City reported on their 2017 Capital Improvement Project related to the removal of ammonia from wastewater at the treatment plant. The project is expected to reduce the level of phosphorus discharged into the Lake. The project is estimated to cost $3,900,000 over a two-year period. Financing options and their impact to the Districts are yet to be determined.
2. Clearwater Inspections.
a. Church Road. Due to elevated flows, particularly during wet weather, Church Road has been televised twice over the past few years. All homes were inspected once. Flows continued to be erratic. The Inspection Team re-inspected all but two of the homes. They will continue to attempt re-inspection of the last two homes when the weather is more conducive.
b. Re-inspection of structures under remediation orders. There are two structures with prior-year remediation orders that have yet to be re-inspected for compliance. The Team will attempt follow-up inspections when the weather is more conducive.
2017 inspections. The Inspection Team requests a reminder notice be sent with the April billing.
1. Discuss the status of the Fiebig property. The property on Lakeview Road was exempted from connection during the construction phase, per the request of Fr. Wally, the former owner of the property. The property is scheduled for a Sheriff's Auction.
Schedule the next meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th, at 6:00 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall.
Public Comment. None presented.
Adjournment. Motion by Mike Sabel, second by John Rickert, to adjourn the meeting at 7:38 p.m. Motion carried (3-0).
