  1. Clerk Wrubel

I am working on getting quotes for the generator upgrade.

 

We are still working on the prices for the meter calibrations for the five meters.

 

The company that we got the library boiler from went out of business. I called the manufacturer and the pump that we had to replace wasn’t under the warranty.

 

I have two quotes for the lawn mower repair. Zimmer has an identical new one to the one we purchased last year at a cost of $9,759.

 

         Hoffman: Are they available now or do we have to order it?

 

         Wrubel: They both will have to be ordered.

 

         Deland: What is the warranty on it?

 

Wrubel: I do not know but I know that there is a warranty on it.

 

Wrubel motioned to go with Zimmer’s quote of $9,759.00 for the new lawn mower supported by Deland.

 

Sturdevant: Are we going to keep the old lawn mower?

Wrubel: Yes as a backup.

 

ROLL CALL VOTE:
YES: Wrubel, Deland, Hoffman, Sturdevant and Jackson. NO: None. ABSENT: Usakowski and Ward. (5-0-2) Motion Carried.

 

Wrubel: Elections are coming up and we need a secure drop box set up in the hall.

 

Port City Communications take our calls after hours for the lift stations. They would get a phone call from one of our lift stations stating that there is lost communication, which they are not supposed to call our DPW. They would call the DPW at 2, 3, 4 o’clock in the morning. They would call the DPW if there was a power failure. But they may call the DPW several more times after the first call and they are charging us for every call.

 

Med Communication which is owned by Tri Hospital are willing to take us on as a client. Right now with Port City Communications we are paying $83.19 for 47 minutes and every additional minute is $1.77. Med Communication are willing to start us out at on their Option One Plan for $54.00 a month with 25 calls and $1.50 for each additional call after the 25. There are no extra fees for their service. They are ready to start with us on March 21, 2022. After hour calls to the DPW will go to Med Communications also.

 

Deland motioned to approve Med Communications Option 1 at $54.00 a month for our Lift Station Communications supported by Hoffman.

 

ROLL CALL VOTE:
YES: Deland, Hoffman, Sturdevant, Wrubel and Jackson.

NO: None. ABSENT: Usakowski and Ward. (5-0-2) Motion Carried.
