  7. Tom explained that Council has been given a copy of his email with Alan Brown regarding an update on the waterline project. Alan wants us to hold off on the CDBG and ARC funding to see if we get a potential grant from Army Corps totaling approximately $1-$2 million. This was discussed in further detail. Council discussed their concerns with waiting and not going forward with the CDBG and ARC grant funding.
  8. The last item on his agenda was a discussion with Council on questions and concerns that some trash haulers have been bringing up to him. Tom stated that he asked Tom Maedke with McBane Insurance his opinion on what the trash hauler’s insurance should be. Mayor Redfern thought that in the bid packet it was supposed to be lowered from the $5 million to the $1 million. It was discussed on what the Village’s insurance policy was compared to what is being asked of the trash haulers. A few trash haulers explained that a couple of the trash haulers told him that they could not bid because they could not meet those requirements. Tom was asked to get a hold of Jan to see what can be done about getting this changed and contact Mr. Maedke about the insurance requirements.

  10. Chris Mohler stated that he received in the mail the other day from Lake Isabella and he would like to discuss with Council about considering giving a discount to active military for the pool moving forward. It was discussed about giving a certain percentage and looking at Lake Isabella’s rates for guidance for updating the pool rates. This will be discussed at the following workshop.
  11. Mayor Redfern asked Council to remember that we have been setting money back for the baby pool and need to start looking at what they would like to do. He asked one or two members of Council to look into information on the baby pool as well as a couple citizens for ideas.

  12. Shelly from BA Disposal was asking Council about if the vote would be on the ballot for having a single trash hauler since she got the signatures needed for the referendum and wanted to know if it would be on there for March.
