VIII. BUSINESS TO BE CONDUCTED

A.  EPA Compliance Status: Mayor Bateman reported to the council that City Attorney Herrington advised that the city accept and pay a fine of $6,500.00 and move forward with planning a project. The draft compliance report requests that the EPA receive a report every 6 months and that a detailed study on the I & I issue be completed by 2020. If the I & I study isn’t acceptable then we will need to start working on a treatment project. If we are in compliance by 2020 the order will go away. Paying the fine increases project eligibility for lots of grants. The good news is that we received no violations last month. Cardwell reported that his grab samples have been much dirtier than the composite sampler was pulling. The EPA will be issuing the city a new permit which will be the same as the old permit. The proposed Compliance Report drafted by the EPA is under advisement with the attorney and engineer. Cm. Elven made a motion to pay the $6,500 fine to the EPA, motion was seconded by Cm. Jensen, motion carried. 

B.  Airport Paving Project: The airport is 90% complete; Herco will be back in September to finish. The city maintenance department finished the painting. Runway looks good. 

C.  Elections – Elven & Jensen: Two council positions are up for re-election which is: Cm. Elven and Cm. Jensen.  Declarations will be due in September. Clerk Schmidt will be in contact with the councilmen regarding deadlines. 

D.  Fire Station Update: Clerk Schmidt reported that the contractor is looking for help framing while Maintenance Cardwell spoke with the contractor about putting down fill around the building instead of gravel. The city required the fill from the Christian Church project. Construction is on schedule. The contractor has been working in the am and pm and getting out of the heat during mid-day. 

E.  Sidewalk – question: Clerk Schmidt provided the council with a picture she received from Dan Johnson. The picture depicts a sidewalk running around trees; so the sidewalk is not straight or completely parallel to the street. Following discussion the council decided that they will allow the sidewalk around a tree. The city maintenance department assisted Robert’s Tree Service with the removal of trees at the Droz residence. 

F.   Budget review – Public Hearing: The budget public hearing to approve Ordinance 2017-9 is scheduled for August 28 at 5:30PM. The council took a few minutes to review the proposed budget. 

G.  Mayor & Council salaries: Following a very brief discussion the consensus of the council was to leave salaries the same.  

IX.       DEPARTMENTAL REPORTS           

A.  Maintenance
Water: Cardwell reported that the water department has been scheduled for a sanitary survey on August 29 at 9AM. Maintenance will be getting the fire station meter installed as well as installing and replacing other meters this month. 

Sewer: As Cardwell previously reported he is taking sewer samples in a different area and the testing results are coming out with the 85% removal we need. We are still discharging which is a first for us as we normally quit discharging in the spring. Cardwell has been sealing up the holes and taking care of rodents on the lagoon dikes. This fall the maintenance department will get lots of sewer stuff completed including moving the composite sampler. 

Streets:  Cardwell asked the council if they want gravel as well as 1,000 tons of chips. When Herco comes back in September we will get some patching done. 

Equipment: Cardwell will take the dump truck to St. John’s for repair.
