On a motion by Trustees Sauer/Tarr, passed on a voice vote, the Board approved the minutes of the March 14, 2011 regular Board Meeting.

 

Brenda Hicks-Sorensen, President and Brett Traver of the Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation presented their annual report to the Board members and audience present. 

 

Don Neitzel representing Kunkel Engineering Group spoke about the bid tabulation spreadsheet for the Bowen Street Relief Sewer Project.  He also emphasized the difficulties the firm had in obtaining various permissions for this project from the Department of Natural Resources and other groups.  Kunkel Engineering Group recommends that the Village of Brandon award the contract to Town & Country Underground from Mayville.

 

On a motion by Trustees Walgenbach/Tarr, carried on a roll call vote, the Board awarded the contract for the Bowen Street Relief Sewer Project to Town & Country Underground of Mayville at a bid amount of $436,537.70. 

 

Jackie Zimmerman representing the Brandon Softball League asked permission to use the ball diamonds on Friday evenings beginning May 27, 2011 and ending August 13, 2011 or August 27, 2011.  By acclimation the Board gave its approval.

 

Library Director Christina Ross handed out the Library’s report for the month of March.  She highlighted past and upcoming activities at the Library.  Fond du Lac Public Library’s departure from Winnefox to another system is still unresolved.

 

The Parks Committee has come back with their recommendation for the storage building that the Laconia Little League would like to build at the Community Park.  This building and any others built in the future would have to follow that building design that is present in existing buildings. 

 

On a motion by Trustees Tarr/Roeming, passed on a voice vote, the Board accepted the recommendations of the Parks Committee, gave the Laconia  Little League permission to build the storage building and the building will become the property of the Village of Brandon when it is completed.

 

A question was asked concerning whose liability insurance is in force during the erection of the building.  The Village’s insurance agent will be called and asked that question.

 

Chief of Police Thomas Dornbrook has checked into the cellular telephone contract.  The phone in the squad needs to be replaced.  He would like the military tough phone and Verizon also offers a Samsung semi-tough phone which would be fine for everything else.  The Verizon contract would include more minutes at a lesser price.  Chief Dornbrook also presented the quote from Kayser Automotive Group for a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. 

 

On a motion by Trustees Tarr/Walgenbach, carried on a roll call vote, the Board approved the purchase of a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor from Kayser Automotive Group for the quoted price of $22,370.50.  This includes changing the interior carpeting to vinyl.

 

The Board reviewed the spreadsheet of the lawn mower bids.  The spreadsheet contained the make, list price, discount, trade-in price, final cost, engine horse power, deck size, mower warranty, engine warranty and engine make.  The discussion centered on the final cost and the warranty that each manufacture offered.

 

On a motion by Trustees Sauer/Walgenbach, carried on a 6 – 1 (Roeming) roll call vote, the Board approved the purchase of a Dixon DX260 for a final cost with trade in of $5,200.00 and with a three year warranty on the mower and the engine. 

 

The effluent ditch behind the sewer plant and running approximately to Liner Road needs to be cleaned.  When the Bowen Street Relief Sewer Project is finished this effluent ditch needs to be able to handle the anticipated increase in water.  This was one of the alternates on the Relief Sewer Project, but no alternates were chosen.  A separate bid was sought for the project from Kinas Excavating.  Their bid came in at $5,900.00.

 

On a motion by Trustees Sauer/Tarr, carried on a roll call vote, the Board approved the bid from Kinas Excavating for $5,900.000 to clean the effluent ditch from behind the sewer plant to Liner Road with the Brandon Sewer & Water Utility paying for the project. 

 

Trustee Tetzlaff brought up the change that was made in the snowmobile trail last winter.  He mentioned that he had one complaint about snowmobile noise, but he doesn’t know how the trail could be rerouted.

 

No other business came before the Board.

 

On a motion by Trustees Tetzlaff/Tarr, passed on a voice vote, the Board adjourned at 10:00 p.m.
