TAYCHEEDAH SANITARY DISTRICT #3
MONTHLY COMMISSION MEETING
MAY 23, 2017
TAYCHEEDAH TOWN HALL
Members present: President Bill Gius and Commissioners John Rickert and Mike Sabel. Also present: Recording Secretary Brenda Schneider.
Call to order. President Gius called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m.
Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge of Allegiance was recited.
Approval of minutes. Motion by John Rickert, second by Mike Sabel, to approve the minutes of the April 20th Monthly Meeting and the May 4th Special Business Meeting, as distributed. Motion carried (3-0).
Approval of bills. Motion by Bill Gius, second by Mike Sabel, to approve the bills (order #51-63), totaling $31,476.40, which excludes the Sabel Mechanical bill due possible duplication of charges. Motion carried (3-0). The Commission remains unaware as to the current location of the two pumps Sabel Mechanical removed from the Church Road lift station.
Motion by Bill Gius, second by John Rickert to authorize the following:
• Transfer $32,000.00 from Operations/User Charge Account to the regular checking account, and
• Transfer $134.56 from the Operations/Inspection Account to the regular checking account.
Motion carried (3-0).
Sewer System Maintenance:
1. Consideration and possible action regarding general maintenance and operational issues.
a. Run time/flow reports. April pump run time reports for all lift stations were distributed and reviewed. Also reviewed was the historic metering station flow data for all three connection points. Although leaks in the Schuster Lane wet well were recently repaired, there remained concern as to the recorded pump run times. It was noted that a private company performed directional borings in the area. The Commission discussed having the area televised again; this time also televising laterals. It was noted that the Town Board adopted an ordinance requiring a permit when utility work is being done within the rights-of-way; however, there remains the need for a consistent application form and notification to the utility companies. The Commission would also like to research the possibility of requiring contractors incur the cost to televise the area after they complete their boring work.
b. Lift stations and grinder pump stations. Speedy Clean is expected on-site next week at the Adams station. The Commission discussed the need to amend the ordinance to charge users for repairs caused by the disposal of foreign materials into the system.
c. Other maintenance and operational issues. John Rickert reported some settling along an easement area across a private lot on Ledgeview Springs Drive. The Commission noted that the warranty period ended several years ago.
The expenses for the County QQ problems that occurred in January were reviewed in preparation for an insurance claim.
Back-up equipment has historically been stored in the Town Shop. It is believed that the Town would like the equipment moved to another location.
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 attempt re-inspection in June.
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 in June.
1. Discuss the Agreement for the Allocation of Costs and Transportation of Wastewater Between Sanitary District No. 1 of the Town of Taycheedah and Town of Taycheedah Sanitary District #3. The matter was tabled pending further review.
Schedule the next meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for June 15th, at 6:00 p.m., at the Taycheedah Town Hall.
Public Comment. None presented.
Adjournment. Motion by John Rickert, second by Mike Sabel, to adjourn the meeting at 7:02 p.m. Motion carried (3-0).
