Present:  Chairman Boyd, Trustees Hausch, Hickey, Long and Schmitt.

The public was invited to attend the Go To Meeting by phone, computer or smart phone, as the office was closed due to COVID-19.  

Chairman Boyd opened the regular meeting. A motion was made by Trustee Hausch and seconded by Trustee Long, that the minutes from the previous meeting of September 22, 2021, be approved, as presented.  All ayes. Motion carried. Vouchers were reviewed and approved.

Mr. Maddox presented the Board with monthly charts and informed the Board of the work that has been done around the Plant. He explained that all the membranes are in place and running on their own PLC’s. There are two pre-filters that need to be repaired. Mr. Bogner is waiting on an estimate and more information before it is decided how to repair them. Mr. Bogner also suggested to add an inspection port in each of the four pre-filters. The #2 transfer pump is back up and running and the UPS has been switched out at the old plant.

Mr. Johnston presented the Board with monthly charts showing locates, service calls, meter installations, meters not sending out a read and water main breaks. Mr. Bogner told the Board that they are still looking into switching meter companies.


Ms. Barnes discussed monthly financials, budget, operating expenses, and water sales to date. She informed the Board that Mrs. Boyd has been reappointed to the Board for another 6 year term.

Mr. Bogner shared with the Board a schedule of the new water meter rates and a rate chart of how it impacts each tier. After some discussion the following resolution was adopted, RES #1142, the Board hereby approves a rate increase of 5% for all steps of the current rate chart. This rate increase is to become effective January 1, 2022. Motion was made by Trustee Hickey and seconded by Trustee Hausch. All ayes. Motion carried.

Mr. Bogner also talked to the Board about all of the water towers getting an inspection. The last time they were inspected was May 2019. The company inspects them inside and outside and all structural components, ladders and paint.

There was also discussion regarding the mains that need to be replaced and that most of them are a 2” line. Also, the Waterworks is in need of a place to haul dirt to in town when they have main breaks.

Mr. Bogner, Mr. Maddox and Mr. Seabold will be attending the Annual Conference for the American Waterworks Association next week in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

There being no further business to come before the Board of Trustees, the meeting was adjourned. The next regular meeting of the Board of Trustees, will be November 23, 2021, at 2:30 P.M. For participation by phone or computer, instructions will be included on the agenda located on our website:
