Edon Board of Public Affairs took up a light agenda during its regular monthly session held Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at Village Chambers. Mayor Darlene Burkhardt called the meeting to order with Andy Ledyard, Chip Hulbert, Fiscal Officer Heidi Bidwell and Water/Wastewater Superintendent Chris Decker in attendance; not answering roll was Warren Henry.
In business brought forward, members:
•Learned installation of the Wastewater Treatment Plant’s privacy fence had been completed by Straight Line Fencing.
•Heard quotes to replace the Village’s Water/Wastewater Department truck were still being obtained.
•Heard from Superintendent Decker that in addition to completing daily operations at both facilities, low spots at the Water Plant were being filled with dirt near the facility (Street Superintendent Jim Brigle and Florence Township Maintenance Superintendent Jay Klingler are assisting); holes at the old well house had been covered with steel plates; the annual CCR was submitted to EPA; Wastewater Treatment Plant lift floats and EQ were cleaned; Lift #1’s starter was rebuilt; blower check-valves were finished; the new pH Testing Meter was received and residential issues, including pumping three tanks, were addressed.
•Were informed no new information regarding the purchase or rental of flow meters was available at this time; it is still hoped to have them on hand by early fall to further explore Village infiltration issues.
•Noted water to fill tanks for fires outside Village limits needs to be taken from the Water Tower and not the hydrants. Solicitor Tom Thompson will be consulted on how best to proceed ~ to either include procedural changes in the Village’s Water Rules and Regulations and/or adopting them as an Ordinance; any modifications will be distributed to surrounding villages for future reference.
•Approved removing late fees from the outstanding bill of one landlord’s previous tenant; the amount will be credited.
•Accepted assessments to property taxes from unpaid water bills as indicated; residents have the opportunity to submit payment in full before action is taken.
