 ***The Threshermen gave an overview of their costs associated with the pull and asked the Village to consider reinstating their donation towards this event. This item will be placed on next month’s meeting agenda.

 Sewer User Fee: The sewer user fee for Retzke auto was processed during the public requests for consideration last month. The Village acknowledged that, according to procedural rules, there should not have been any action taken then, and is now taking corrective action.

Motion: Diederich/Mansavage to reconsider the motion made in procedural error and to restate the motion to implement a business sewer rate for Retzke Auto, effective the date the conditional use permit was issued and also to grant the business owner a time extension for payments to be received by December 31, 2016.

Motion: Firkus/Diederich to proceed with purchase of the photo copier from EO Johnson in the amount of $2,256.00. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

NEW BUSINESS:

Salt Storage:

The property adjacent to the Village Hall is now listed for sale for $12,900.00. The Village previously made an offer to purchase of $8,000.00. It was noted that there are still unknown items to consider such as outstanding liens or underground fuel tanks.

The maintenance crew prefers the convenience and location of this site, however, off site storage and purchasing equipment to keep at that site were considered.

Motion: Firkus/Mansavage to consider other options and not purchase the property adjacent to the Village Hall. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

The Board took a moment to go to the maintenance portion of the building to review the condition of the salt storage bay. They discussed possible remedies to prevent further damage such as chemical applications and cutting out the damaged steel and replacing it with different material.

Motion: Mansavage/Anderson to take no action with chemicals or steel removal, but to seek a safe alternative such as applying drain oil. Firkus/Diederich opposed, all others in favor, Motion Carried. Motion then rescinded by Mansavage.

Motion: Firkus/Mansavage to take immediate preventative measures by applying an environmentally, safe oil based solution. More extensive measures will be considered after 1 year. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

Resolution to borrow funds:

A resolution was presented for approval which authorizes the Village to borrow funds from the Rosholt Sewer commission for engineering services for the dam in the amount of $76,500.00. The board had questions about how this process affects the debt portion of the tax levy.

Motion: Anderson/Kurszewski to postpone action until the next meeting pending advice from the accountant. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

Maintenance Rich presented the Compliance Maintenance Annual report for the sewer.

 Fire District Building Repair:

The Fire building is in need of repairs. When the remedy and costs estimates are determined, the Village will be responsible for 7.30% of the total costs.

If the Village cannot afford to replace the trucks every 30 years, as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), it was noted that their standards are only recommendations, not mandated.

Village of Rosholt Minutes

Special Board Meeting

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

7:30 p.m. @ Village Hall (101 S Main St)

 

PROPOSED DRAFT TO BE APPROVED JULY 11, 2016

 Call to order: by President Robert Kurszewski

Pledge of Allegiance:

Roll Call: Robert Kurszewski, Travis Firkus, Sandi Diederich and Craig Anderson. (Absent: Richard Mansavage)

 Also Present: Several Fair Board Members on location at the Fair Park

 Dam Project:

Several aspects of the dam were discussed including project costs. Preliminary cost estimates were presented that compared dam reconstruction versus dam removal.

Previous public input indicated most folks prefer the pond remain in tact. The price difference is not significant enough to choose to abandon the dam and risk the threat of blastomycosis.    

Motion: Firkus/Anderson to proceed with the dam reconstruction project, to authorize AECOM to file for a one year time extension and to borrow engineering funds from the sewer commission in the amount of $76,500.00 for a 20 year term. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

Motion: Anderson/Kurszewski to authorize the Clerk to gather information, to be presented at the July 11th meeting, from financial institutions regarding borrowing scenarios in the amount of $500,000.00 for a 20 year term. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

 ** The Public will be notified of the project progression in the quarterly newsletter.

 8:15 p.m. Diederich departed and all other trustees relocated to the Fair Park to continue the meeting.

 Road Maintenance: The parking area at the top of the hill by the community hall is deteriorating and eventually the Fair Board would like it resurfaced, but currently they are asking the Village to fix the patches necessary to remedy the liability concerns regarding foot traffic.

Motion: Firkus/Anderson to authorize Maintenance Rich to apply “Cold Patch mix” to the parking area by the community hall at the Fair Park. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

 Tree Removal:  Village & Fair Board members toured the Fair grounds and marked trees that both parties agreed upon for removal.

Maintenance is being performed on the commercial building and trees need to be removed in order to prevent further maintenance concerns so about 10 trees will be removed from the area between the commercial building and dinner stand and some North of the commercial building.

About a dozen trees will be removed from the West side of the commercial building to create a parking area.

Several other trees will be removed throughout the park as they are damaged by nature such as lighting, insects and birds.

~The Fair board may have located a tree removal company who is willing to remove the trees at no cost, as a community project.

~They will also try to find someone willing to sculpt one of the tree trunks.

Motion: Kurszewski/Anderson to authorize the fair board to remove the trees agreed upon as long as there are no costs associated with tree removal. If there are costs involved, the Fair Board must reconvene with the Village board for further approval. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.

 Adjournment: 9:15 p.m.

Motion: Kurszewski/Anderson to adjourn. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried.
