PUBLIC WORKS Chris Zenner reported that Energenics was at the lift station to complete their work on adjusting the new pump and what they did seems to be working. He reported that the fecal matter was now coming out like it should. They worked on the ponds, went to hook up the new fan and it too did not work, it did not run right out of the box, so they have to get another one to replace it. This is the only issue that needed to be completed and is under warranty. Chris reported that they would be working on cross connections. Discussion ensued about the Village Hall Coping and why Bruce Andrews had not put it on. Trustee Niebeling said that we should have looked the bills over better as it was not listed on the initial quote, President Turvaville and Trustee Baker wanted to arrange a meeting with Bruce about this issue at 9am on Friday.

DISCUSSION on ATV ordinance for Cemetery Road ending at W6459 going down the hill on Alice and Mike Celts property Darin Place and Bob Johnson with the Pierce County ATV club were present to discuss any questions the board might have. The board advised that they were open to allowing it, but all neighbors had to be notified and their concerns would have to be taken into consideration. The board advised the clerk to go ahead with the notifications. The issue was tabled until the next scheduled board meeting.

DISCUSSION on the WWTP final billing, it had not gotten paid because the board was concerned if we paid it then they might not get the work completed that needed to be completed. It was decided that since all issues were mostly resolved, what was left was warranty work the board would go ahead and pay the final invoice.
