Public Comments

Old Business
Officer: Officer Noack reported the Strawberry Fest went well. Office Noack was able to lead the Strawberry Fest Parade; it was his 1st time getting to lead a parade. He also stated he’s been talking with the youth about darting across Hwy 95 on their bicycles.

Sewer Repairs: Things are running good.

Sidewalk Repairs: President Ristow, Jeff Gaede & Dennis Hardwick inspected the sidewalks. We will be pursuing bids and discuss them at the August’s meeting.

Utility Billing: After talking with the PSC, we will NOT be making any changes to the billing at this time. We will continue to Estimate the first 2 months of the quarter and read meters the 3 month.
Vandalism: After placing the new camera and the signs at the park we have had no more issues. We will continue to monitor the camera daily, so smile big. Thank you again Attorney Radcliffe for the donation of the camera.

Turtle Pond Road: Per the State the road will be 2 ft. wider then planed, the Hwy Commissioner met with President Ristow and there is plenty of room for the change. An ad will be placed accepting bids for the work. Based on the grant we were awarded, the work must be completed within 5 years.

Strawberry Fest: The weather was great, the fun run had approx... 50 runners, the Baseball tournament was great. Saturday night they had Sage playing under the tent, had a very good turnout. The car show Sunday had about 108 cars, and the Parade was super. Thank you to all that volunteered to make the Strawberry Fest successful.

Motion was made by Olson/Anderson to accept the Final Balancing Change order #2 of $22,212.00 a decrease of $1,330.00 and pay the final test well payment to Nelson plumbing & Elect for $2,177.70. Motion was carried unanimously.

Davy Engineering: Mark Davy & Brice Nelson
The application and specs were sent to the DNR on time. It was discovered that a change was made within the DNR in the last few months with the points system for the Loan Forgiveness Program. They no longer take the unemployment rate for the county in consideration, this caused our points to go down to 95, and we need 100 points to qualify for 60% loan forgiveness. So, they now have an “Asset Management Plan” that we can do and this will bring us over 100 points and make us eligible for the 60% forgiveness again.
Motion was made by Simonson/Patterson to have Davy Engineering prepare the Asset Management Plan with Jeff Gaede for $5,500.00. Motion carried unanimously.

Motion was made by Olson/Anderson to accept an offer on Lot 12 in the Meadow View addition, Attorney Radcliffe will contact the interested buyers and send them the offer to purchase And a copy of the Meadow View Covent to sign. Motion was carried unanimously.

Thank you to the Alma Center Lions Club for their donation of $237.50 for 1/2 the cost of replacing the infant swings at the Community Park.

Shoreline Zoning Ordinance: No action taken at this time.

Motion was made by Anderson/Patterson to approve Jeff Gaede & Dennis Hardwick to attend the Northwood’s Collection System Seminar July 26, 2018. Motion was carried unanimously.
