APPROVAL OF MINUTES - The minutes of the July 5, 2016 were approved.
Public Comments: No Comments
A. Streets - The Committee reviewed the 2017 street priority list for jobs to be completed in house by staff. The committee concluded that the streets most in need of repair were the first 3 items listed on the 2017 street priority list, which is D’Adrian Court and the last street item South Hanser Drive. A short run on Biscay (H4 item) could probably be added to the list depending on time and money.
items touched base for discussion but no action taken are:
0 Purchasing a larger roller or bigger trailer was discussed. O Seine Drive, by the Homer Adams pond area, the incoming storm pipe needs to be
replaced. Also, there were discussions about work on the pond's overflow. Consider adding the Summerfield main entrance street on to the repair list 6 Mr. Lewis said that this winter would be a good time to inspect pipes and culverts
in the D’Adrian Subdivision, o MFT budget is coming due in January. With the closure of the Granite Steel plant, there was discussion to purchase more slag this year and store it at the Public Works lot near Winter Lane. Mr. Lewis will research about the slag inventory. o Mr. Lewis said that the public works department conducted street repair using
around 1,525 tons of HMA; he feels that the department could accomplish up to around 2000 tons of HMA work in a year time.
B. Sanitary Sewer- Tope has completed its work in the Villa Marie Subdivison on the I/I. Heneghan is working on the modeling from the data that was collected. Federal EPA would like to have the village monitor real time flow at the four sites by ADS.
Juneau is gathering more information from its data to help in the analyzing the possibility of connecting the Villa Marie Interceptor to the existing system coming out of the Villa
Marie Subdivision, Pump hours will be monitored two times a week to see what additional flow it puts out,
Mr. Weber said that he hopes that the modeling of the data will help the Village make a solid decision on how to solve the overflow issues at the Lewis & Clark Apartment area during the period of heavy rainfall.
Mayor McCormick said there are some interested in adding existing homes on to the Area 3 sanitary sewer system.
Mr. Noble said that Piasa Township Chair, Charlie Davis has inquired if the Village would like to take over their sanitary system. He said American Water has talked to them about their waste water system. No action taken.
C. Storm Water- Mr. Catalano said that he and some Village staff met with Madison
County to coordinate with the county on information and possible use of funds to help the Village with its storm water management report. The preliminary storm water management report is scheduled to be received from AECOM (URS) around the end of September.
There are storm water problems all over the Village and as the system ages it becomes even worse. The committee is looking at how to prioritize, and what avenues can be
taken to cover costs for large projects,
e Taxing districts to those homes affected by a certain watershed. O Ask the Finance committee for a small tax increase
D. Parks- The Labor Day celebrations went very well for Glazebrook Park. Mayor
McCormick thanked the Park Department.
