Council Workshop Minutes    Monday, November 28, 2016

Mayor Redfern called the meeting to order. Present were Chris Rice, Scott Locke, Bill Hampton, Jan Driggs, Billie Smith, and Chris Mohler. Tom Collins was present.

  1. First item on Brittany’s agenda was a Fund Summary report that was updated throughout the end of the day with most transfers done and most bills paid.
  2. Next item on the agenda was a review/ discussion on the EMS Billing Contract through Corlyn Altier at CSA Enterprises. The terms would be 10% for three years but if only wanted to sign for a year it would go back up to 12%. Council did not see a problem with signing the contract for three years as they feel she does a wonderful job. A couple EMS workers were present and agreed that she does great at taking care of the billing. Brittany explained that she will have this on the agenda for approval for Monday.
  3. The last item on her agenda was for Council to decide if they would like to reserve an easement across the acreage for Reservoir 1 & 2. Council asked Tom if this is something we would ever need in the future and he feels that the Village would not need to have this. It was discussed that the address needed added as well and this has been a problem to obtain as the correct information doesn’t show on the auditor’s website. Tom explained that he will look into this when he gets back on Monday. Council stated that they would probably have to table the third reading on this until all of the information is gathered. Council discussed this in further detail. They also discussed getting them cleaned up with either a grant or having workers go up and clean it up.
  4. Bill Hampton asked how the Waterline Project was coming along. Tom Collins asked to go into executive session to discuss.

Council is out of executive session with no decisions made.

Mayor Redfern discussed adding a projection screen/ tv to show different things when people or vendors come to speak with Council about projects or information given to look at.

Council discussed the ideas for the splash park that they have been looking at to replace the baby pool. Tom asked Council to give him a range to give the vendors to work with to give us a start. Council thought that a good range would be from $60,000-$85,000. This was discussed in further detail. Council discussed grants that may be available to look into for this to help complete this project.

Mayor Redfern discussed getting an engineering firm on retainer next year. Council stated that this is what we have Tim Linn with Linn Engineering for. Tom stated that he would talk to Tim Linn about this.

Mayor Redfern adjourned the meeting.
