WATER MAIN AVAILABILITY
Gale Bruns addressed the Council on the current transmission line running to the south that is shared by eight users. He and Carl Knuppe requested hooking onto the six inch water main that is going to the County Shop at 229th Street. They will pay for all boring and materials to create a new line for themselves that will go west across 161st St and then south, and they will not disturb the existing line. After discussion, it was moved by Holloway second by White to authorize Knuppe and Bruns to tap onto the new six inch main at 229th Street, all costs associated with this new service line will be borne by these two gentlemen, the city will waive the impact and availability fees (since they have already been paid in years past), and they must coordinate with the Dir. of Public Works on the installation and hook up of this line, as built drawings will be filed at city hall. Aye: all. Motion carried.
WEST WATERLINE EXPANSION
Discussion on extending the water main to 159th St. followed. An easement has been drawn up and would need to be signed by the Matz Estate to finish off this main. Dub Vanneman requested that since the public works staff is currently busy with the south water main expansion, he would hire the digging done and pay for half the materials. Discussion followed on the policy that the city has always done the digging and the developer pays for all materials. The Council argued amongst themselves about the best way to handle this situation, all agreed the cost for man and machine to lay this line is higher than if the city cost shared the materials. Motion by Whitney second by Buchtel to cost share, fifty-fifty, for materials, in lieu of paying and supplying man and machine, pending receipt of a signed easement from Matz. Aye: all. Motion carried.
Motion by Whitney second by White to authorize the Mayor’s signature on the Matz easement when it is signed by the Matz Estate. Aye: all. Motion carried.
A petition of annexation was received from Watkin (Dub) Vanneman for approximately 273.54 acres and a request to establish a rural service district. Motion by Buchtel second by Whitney to accept and authorize the Mayor’s signature on this petition of annexation, as soon as proof of the land purchase is presented. Aye: all. Motion carried.
Resolution number 12-02 was introduced.
