IX. OFFICERS REPORT
- Supervisor Usakowski
Discussed the gun shooting on Ravenswood. We did send out a letter indicating that he was violating the zoning related to shooting ranges. We have not received any responses from the owner. We have not addressed the tannerite outside the noise ordinance but we will look into it.
MS-4 Permit: Regulates the discharge that goes into State Controlled waters. You have to be in an Urbanized Zone, and our Fire Hall and Library are included.
We will update our website to reflect requirements of the permit.
- Clerk Wrubel
SCADA: Our communication we have with all the lift stations to communicate lost power, high pump levels, long runs, etc. The calls in the past and currently go to Port City Communications. SCADA told me that the antennas currently on the lift stations aren’t tall enough now because the trees have grown. The three antennas that are the worst are Pickford, Allen and Smiths Creek. The cost to raise these antennas would cost $6,265.00 just to do Pickford and Allen. Smiths Creek really needs to be done also. The total cost of raising all three would cost $9,925.00.
Wrubel motioned to approve the cost of $9,925.00 to raise the three lift station towers on Pickford, Allen and Smiths Creek Roads supported by Ward.
ROLL CALL VOTE: YES: Wrubel, Ward, Hoffman, Deland, Nelson, Jackson and Usakowski. NO: None. ABSENT: None. (7-0-0) Motion Carried.

Auditors have been here for two days and they will be finalizing their report. Happy with the work that has been done by the staff and our accountant.
Readiness to serve fees went up. KOA would like us to review their RTS charges during the quarter they are closed.
Usakowski: I don’t think that we should make any exceptions for any individual customers. If we want to change the ordinance to address any particular issues in the ordinance, that would be the route to go.
Jackson: Who is paying for the water on that new drinking fountain on the bike trail?
Wrubel: The County did it and Jason has a meter on it.
Jackson: Are we going to charge the County?
Usakowski: We should be charging them.
Jackson: Taxes will be going out soon.
