APPROVALS OF MINUTES – The Minutes of the January 3rd, 2017 – No action was taken
A. Streets – Mr. Hughes, William Catalano and John Uhl handed out some informational charts on Village’s Street Material, street work performed status, a proposed Street Maintenance Program Schedule and a proposed overview of a FY 2017-2021 plan. Mr. Hughes stated that the plan would be determined by street age, and/or problems that occur in other streets needing attention right away. He said the village needs to develop a long term plan for maintenance of all the streets of Godfrey. We are behind the eight ball and will need to step it up to get where we need to be. There is over 200,000 linear feet of Hot-Mix Asphalt streets in the Village and the village addresses averagely a little over 5,000 linear feet per year. This puts the village at maintenance of a HMA street about every 40 years, and the average useful life of an HMA pavement is around 15 years. This aggressive start may need to be accomplished by taxation of property or retail to help finance. The issue is the need for more money to improve the quality of life in Godfrey. The plan was reviewed. No action was taken.
B. Sanitary Sewer- Mr. Noble said that canvassing Villa Marie subdivision on foot will start on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. The Sewer staff and representative from Heneghan will be looking for infiltration points to be corrected. No action was taken.
Mr. Noble and Juneau will meet tomorrow to review Lakeside and try to set up a meeting with a property owner to discuss the possibility of obtaining an easement that will be needed for this project. Mr. Noble is to check with Juneau to see if there are any watershed improvement grants available. Mr. Hughes would like to be informed if it can be obtained. No action was taken.
