Effective August 1, 2016 the utility will be required to jet 20% of sewer laterals on an annual basis. It is becoming harder to get help from neighboring communities. Henning has looked at several sewer jetters and, after discussion at a recent Public Works committee meeting, recommends buying a new one at $50,000. The committee also recommends borrowing the whole amount with the Commissioners of Public Lands. Motion by Trustees Krohn/Vollbrecht, unanimously approved on a roll call vote, to approve the purchase of a sewer jetter at a cost not to exceed $50,000. Clerk to check with local banks and Commissioners of Public lands. Financing to be with the lowest interest rate at a term of 6-10 years.
Walgenbach suggested that, due to many sewer expenses, funds should be transferred from the sewer infrastructure account to cover those costs. This action was approved on a motion by Walgenbach/Krohn and unanimously carried on a roll call vote.
No other business came before the Board. The Board adjourned at 7:25 pm on a motion by Trustees Smit/Krohn and unanimously passed on a voice vote.
