COMMITTEE REPORTS: 

Fire District: Kurszewski reported that Jeff Check has been appointed as the chair of the district board.

He also stated that the district has plans to purchase a KW generator for approximately $7,000.00. They plan to use funds from the district to make the purchase; the municipalities will not be responsible for any of the costs. There is some concern regarding the necessity of the generator and the fact that this year’s general operating budget did not include this purchase. The suggestion was made that the district considers this purchase during the 2019 budget process.

Motion:  Anderson/Garski to authorize Kurszewski to vote against the generator purchase if the costs are to be paid by the municipalities instead of the Fire District.

Firkus and Mansavage abstained, all others in favor, motion carried.

Special Board Meeting

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

5:00 p.m. @ Village Hall (101 S Main St) 

PROPOSED DRAFT TO BE APPROVED JUNE 11, 2018

 

Call to order: by President Robert Kurszewski

Pledge of Allegiance:

Roll Call: Robert Kurszewski, Travis Firkus, Craig Anderson, and Mike Garski (Absent: Richard Mansavage)

Also Present: Cliff Shierk from AECOM

Musson Brothers is requesting a “Change of Condition” due to the fact that the old saw mill structure of logs and boulders has been discovered and it has hampered their ability to continue the sheet piling task.

They are proposing a “time and materials” change order to further excavate the site. The proposed estimate is $4,000.00 per day and they anticipate approximately 4 or 5 work days to complete this task for a possible total of $20,000.00. 

Another option is to redesign the project which may be more expensive and will exceed the anticipated time to complete the project. 

There is some concern from the Village board that contingency was not built into their price or listed as a separate item. Some of this cost will be reimbursed through the Grant program funds. 

There is also concern regarding the sludge disposal. 

AECOM will monitor and record the work associated with this task to guarantee that previously detailed tasks associated with this work are not billed as part of the extra time and materials. 

Motion: Firkus/Anderson to approve a “Change of Condition” for time and materials not to exceed $20,000.00. All in favor, none opposed, motion carried. 

Adjournment at 6:35 p.m.

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