            A.  Maintenance

Sewer: Maintenance Cardwell reported that we have not had a year like this one in a while. We have water running everywhere. He asked the council to consider a big stormwater fix for the draining ditch that runs past Kaschmitter’s and onto the ball field. The water was only feet from the Kaschmitter’s foundation and rolling into the manhole on Cedar. That needs corrected as well as the drainage ditch that goes down the runway so that the water can run correctly. There was no discharging all month as he could not get chlorine residual as he has never had this problem before. Cardwell will ask some questions of the professionals at the rural water conference this week. This has been a very stressful month pumping water out of areas to get the water to the creek. Cardwell suggest to the council that he would like to build a catwalk around the chlorination basin so that he can get the whole basin cleaned out properly. 

Streets: Maintenance will be doing some cold patching, 2 potholes found thus far. Working to get the sweeper running as the starter went out. 

Water: Communication problem with wells again in the last month. Cardwell will look into getting a bid on an alarm system at the conference this week. Ground water is coming in everywhere including the well house. 

Conference: Cardwell will be in Boise on Wednesday and Thursday for an Idaho Rural Water conference. Mayor Bateman will keep the pumps pumping around town while Cardwell is gone. 

            B.  Clerk

Computer: Clerk Schmidt reported that she is having lots of computer issues and informed the council that she will have it repaired remotely; hopefully it can be fixed and not have to be replaced. 

Flags: Clerk Schmidt asked Cm. Elven if the legion was still selling American Flags, he will get her one. 

            C.  Fire Department 

Mayor Bateman reported that the department should be burning the pile next to the Senior Center as time and a burn day allows.                                               


IX.       PUBLIC COMMENT                      

Liz Hess addressed the council regarding groundwater seeping into the basement of the museum. Volunteers have been using borrowed pumps to pump out inches of water. Following discussion Cm. Elven moved to purchase sump pumps for the city building. Cm. Nelson seconded the motion, motion carried.

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. You've got a design here that's not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what you're saying. Great job, indeed.  web design service los angeles
