Motion to pass by Rick Conrad, Seconded by Charlie Lewis. Roll Call: Rick Conrad-yes, Charlie Lewis-yes, Mike Harwood-yes, Robert McCarthy-yes, Rodney Mackey-yes, and Steve Stoffer-yes.
Rodney Mackey reported the sewer plant upgrade is coming along and Gary Daugherty thought they could be done in late September. The EPA still has the upgrade plans for the water treatment plant; Gary hopes to have them back in 1 to 1 ½ weeks. Still no quote on the garage door for the water treatment plant. After the new filters are in we will flush all the lines and clean the towers out. Kevin Dean thinks we can clean the towers with his help. We need to check out the Dover tower to make sure we can drain it without losing water to the people on Oberly Drive. Will set up a meeting with Pam Ewing with RCAP to help us with the financing of the water treatment plant and the extension of the sewer line to the Waynedale Campus. Gary is going to check with the financing firms that are helping with the upgrade to the treatment plant to see if we can do a change order to include the $39,100 from Simonson Construction to demolish the south plant.
Jeff Musselman is working on getting prices for the two easements we need to renew with the state for the sewer treatment plant. We will be cementing in two of the manholes that are at the top of hill and crushing in the other manholes on the line from ACDC and will not be renewing that easement. ATI does not want us to crush in the manholes until the crops are in; the state will probably be extending that easement until the end of the year.
JEDD: Public hearing meeting for JEDD# 2 will be on August 3, 2015 at 6 pm.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS: Historical Society will be permitted to have a key to Mayer Carson hall for the week of Johnny AppleSeed days with one person being responsible for the key.
NEW BUSINESS: First Reading of Ordinance 2015-17 An Ordinance Defining Employee and Dependent Eligibility For Health Insurance Coverage, and amending Ordinance 2004-06. Motion to advance to the second reading at the July 20, 2015 meeting by Mike Harwood, Seconded by Rodney Mackey. Roll Call: Mike Harwood-yes, Rodney Mackey-yes, Rick Conrad-yes, Robert McCarthy-yes.
COMMITTEE REPORTS: CIC meeting August 17th at 5:30 pm.
FINANCE: The 2016 Budget was presented; Robert McCarthy made a motion to approve the 2016 budget Seconded by Mike Harwood. Roll Call: Robert McCarthy-yes, Mike Harwood-yes, Rick Conrad-yes, Rodney Mackey-yes, Charlie Lewis-yes, and Steve Stoffer-yes.
