• Heard from Superintendent Decker that frozen clarifiers had been taken care of; a plugged return line was pumped out by Brown’s of Montpelier and chlorine feed pumps should be replaced every six-twelve months. He also noted Dave Wehrle and Tim Hartsock would submit quotes to replace and/or add shut-off valves to the Village’s waterline.
• Was informed running a camera through sewer lines would be the best solution to address current issues; the County has approved usage of their equipment for the project budgeted at two thousand dollars.
• Learned the generator at the Wastewater Treatment Plant should be moved to prevent further exposure to weather conditions; Superintendent Decker will organize the undertaking.
• Tabled further discussion regarding work at the Water Plant until additional quotes are obtained; under consideration is purchasing steel, having it fabricated into railings for Village employees to install around the Plant’s outside water tanks. This upgrade is in compliance with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation PERRP (Public Employment Risk Reduction Program) inspection report.
• Heard, to date, Artesian had not yet replaced the Water Plant’s lower manifolds.
• Signed the Shut-Off List.
Edon Board of Public Affairs will hold its next meeting Tuesday, April 9, 2013 beginning at 4:30 p.m. in Village Chambers.
