The village of Godfrey Capital Projects Committee met Oct. 4 to propose a new sanitary sewer line.
Here are the meeting's minutes, as provided by the committee:
"The Godfrey Capital Projects Committee oversees infrastructure within the village."
Capital Projects Committee GODFREY, ILLINOIS October 4, 2016
Mr. Stumpf called the Capital Projects Committee of the Village of Godfrey to order at 10:00 a.m. on October 4th, 2016 at the Village of Godfrey Wastewater Treatment Facility, 4725 Brecht Lane, Godfrey, Illinois.
Present: Mike Stumpf, Joe Hughes, Mayor Mike McCormick, Jeff Weber, Bill Orrill,
William Catalano, Craig Noble and John Uhl, Advisor.
Absent: Eldon Williams
Visitors: Mark Stewart
APPROVAL OF MINUTES – The minutes of the September 20th, 2016 were approved.
A. Streets – There was discussion of the condition and the method of repair of Brecht
Lane, the back streets of Storeyland Subdivision and the Colonial Subdivision. It was decided that Mr. Hughes and Mr. Catalano with information supplied by Mr. Uhl would go back to the Village’s Street Inventory list and review the proposed “Life Expectancy” of the Village’s streets and look at the existing conditionals of the streets and to bring back a priority list of streets for repair for a five to ten-year plan. There was discussion to choose the next streets for Microsurfacing in 2017 – no proposals were made at this time.
Mr. Uhl was instructed to report at the next meeting the Village’s Ordinance on pavement requirement and the Madison County’s Ordinance on pavement requirement. The committee may want to update the Village’s Ordinance.
B. Sanitary Sewer- Mr. Uhl developed a map of the sanitary sewer system in the Business District area that shows the different pipe material (PVC, Ductile Iron, Clay, CIP and other material) to help developing a cure in place program. It was estimated that there is around 20,600 linear feet of Vitrified Clay pipes in are near the Business District. Also there are roughly six lines that end with a clean-out that would need to have a manhole installed to be able to cure in place these lines. Discussion also added that the Modeling program would be helpful to determine which lines should be cure in place or to be replaced.
Mr. Noble was asked to find out the price per foot for cure in place for the next meeting. The committee would like to see how much linear feet of pipe lining could be done per year for a total cost of $100,000.00 per year. Mr. Noble is working on a proposal to have a multiple year contract with a contractor to do cure in place.
Juneau is moving forward with the Villa Marie, Rockgate and Lakeside projects.
Mr. Weber reported to the committee a proposed new sanitary sewer line which would come from the Lewis and Clark Apartments area (Grace Street) to connect to the existing line on the northwest side of the Public Works parcels. Because of the difficulty of placing a new line along the west side of Godfrey Road because of the existing utilities, the proposed option is to look at going through the Bowers Towing parcel and through the middle of the Public Works parcels to make connection with the existing sanitary sewer line.
Mr. Noble indicated that the staff was going to pull one of the pumps at the Frontenac lift station to take to Vandeveter to inspect the impeller and wear ring and to bench test the efficiency of the pump’s current power. The thoughts are that maybe this lift station could function better with a higher horsepower pump.
Mr. Noble stated that he met with officials from Beverly Farms. They are teaming together to further look into I&I issues.
C. Storm Water- Mr. Catalano said that he is reviewing the preliminary Business District
Storm Water Master Plan report received from AECOM. He gave a brief overview and stated that he would schedule a meeting with subcommittee to review the proposal and will come back to the committee with their comments and suggestions of the report.
D. Parks- Mr. Stumpf stated he would like to see some additional work done at the Homer
Adams Park around the concrete bridge area where the Village had installed a field drain system.
E. Discussion of Sales Tax Initiative - No Report
F. Further consideration and prioritization of potential capital projects within the business
district- No Report.
G. Further consideration and prioritization of potential capital projects outside of the
business district. No Report
Mr. Stewart stated that he would like to see the committee take more interest in connecting more non-sewer existing homes and getting them connected to the Village sanitary sewer system. His concerns were some of the subdivision off of West Delmar Ave because of the installation of the North Route 3 Sanitary Sewer System. Also, he expressed that he would like the committee to look at setting goals for the long range to serve the existing homes that are not services by the Village’s sanitary sewer and are not in subdivisions.
A Motion to adjourn at 11:55 a.m. by Mr. Orrill. Seconded by Mr. Hughes. Motion Carried.
Our next meeting will be on October 18th at 10:00 a.m.
Respectfully Submitted, Debbie Wedding-Secretary
