It was business as usual for Edon Board of Public Affairs when convening in regular session Monday, September 9, 2013 at Edon Village Chambers. Mayor Darlene Burkhardt called the early evening meeting to order with members Chip Hulbert, Andy Ledyard, Warren Henry, Fiscal Officer Heidi Bidwell and Water/Wastewater Superintendent Chris Decker in attendance.
In action taken, the Board:
•Learned in addition to daily operations, Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent Decker had located a residential water service shut-off (to the main line), repaired service leaks, reported recent lead and copper sample results to EPA and previously-selected residents, had old septic tanks disposed of and noted water demand was UP during August. He also serviced blowers at the treatment plant; changed out Pump #2, reworked floats and replaced some contact starters on the lift station; a new lift pump remains on order while the spare was sent directly to Cleveland for maintenance.
•Noted I & I issues continue to be investigated and rain amounts monitored; discussed how septic holding tank risers would need to be raised to help curb infiltration.
•Heard Richmond Machine had installed the new crane on the Village’s Wastewater/Water utility truck.
•Learned Artesian of Pioneer would need to fill out an affidavit regarding repairs completed at the Water Plant this summer; they restored service to the Village’s system after lightning damaged the Plant’s telemetry and transducer.
•Noted Village sewer drains were smoked Friday, August 23 by Ohio Rural Water Association (ORWA); Superintendent Decker is awaiting results of their report. Further discussion regarding additional sewer drain-smoking (contracted out or possibly done “in-house”) was tabled.
•Was informed asbestos and transient tests had been completed.
•Approved the Minutes, Financial Report and Bills as presented.
•Signed the Shut-Off List.
Edon Board of Public Affairs will hold its next meeting Tuesday, October 8, 2013 beginning at 4:30 p.m. in Village Chambers.
