Trustees of the Village of Brandon, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin met in the Village of Brandon Board Room on Monday, March 11, 2013.

On a motion by Trustees DeCramer/Walgenbach, unanimously passed on a voice vote, the Board approved the minutes of the February 11, 2013 utility meeting, with the change of making Trustee Krohn present.
Trustee DeCramer would like future minutes to show the time of late arrivals. Trustee Walgenbach noted on the February 11, 2013 minutes, the amended resolution was not incorrect. The example was changed to show correct fees.
President Tetzlaff reported as per a previous meeting with Ehlers, the Village does not have the capital to replace the utilities under Highway 49. The 2019 State Highway project will only include black top.
Don Neitzel of Kunkel Engineering provided handouts for the Well #2 project. Neitzel reported he submitted the Safe Drinking Water grant to the DNR and we won’t know the Village’s rank until the end of March. Neitzel explained the project, why it needs to be done, and a possible alternate route to Well #2 which could save the Village some money. Neitzel recommended having a test pump to confirm the additional capacity out of Well #2 before we proceed. There is an engineering study that needs to be completed by the end of March for the DNR to consider the Village for the grant. This engineering study will take approximately a week to complete and would cost $3600. Neitzel would be willing to cut the cost in half because of prior discrepancies with the Bowen St. project. On a motion by President Tetzlaff/Trustee Henker, unanimously carried on a roll call vote, the Board approved the DNR Engineering Study by Kunkel Engineering for $1800.
No other business came before the Board. The Board adjourned at 7:26 pm on a motion by Trustees Horvath/Walgenbach and unanimously passed on a voice vote.
