PUBLIC WORKS Chris Zenner reported that Energenics replace our filters at the lift station that must be replaced once a year. They were past due being replaced and this had caused the sensors to go off at the lift station causing the outside alarms to go off. Chris reported that cross connections were completed. A deer stand was found out by the sewage ponds on the Villages Property, DNR had contacted Chris about it as deer stands have to be removed daily if they are on public property. The board told Chris to take down the stand. A discussion was held about hunting on Village Property and the board has always allowed hunting on Village land and did not want to change that, but they want to ensure that all DNR regulations are being followed by those doing so.
DISCUSSION with Mike House on concerns he has over the excess water run off on his property since Bruce Andrews put the storage sheds up. Mike asked the board if there was anything they would do about the problem and they advised them that all state requirements were met by Bruce Andrews and that at this point there was nothing that they could do.
