the Trunk Sewer Utility Improvements were opened August 8, 2018 with results as
Resolution #16 approved, award Trunk Sewer Utility Improvements construction contract to Kubricky Construction Corp; $1,904,085.00.
The Board discussed a potential change order to the Trunk Sewer project which would allow storm sewer to be installed on a portion of Pine St outside of the Trunk Sewer project area. Kubricky Construction Corp has quoted a price of $360,000 in order to complete this project which would not be covered by financing from the CWSRF. The Board indicated they were willing to consider using Village funds, including Consolidated Highway Improvement funds (CHIPS), and asked Laberge to prepare a change order for their consideration.
As part of the water project it has been discovered that 10 West Mountain Road needs a service line as the former line was run off of 14 West Mountain Road’s line. The homeowner requested a reduced installation fee, which the Board was willing to grant since the Town Highway Department had consented to restore roadway pavement after the service is installed.
Trustee Pasquarell, seconded by Trustee Halliday, approved service connection
install at 10 West Mountain Rd for a fee of $1,750 to be paid by the homeowner
with pavement reconstruction to be completed by the Town of Corinth Highway
Clerk-Treas Colson and Engineer Don Rhodes discussed the December 2018 water/sewer billing with the Board. Mr. Rhodes stated not all water meters in the Village would be installed by September 1 as previously hoped. Based on this discussion the Board decided to implement the Minimum Value Charge (MVC) December 1 for water/sewer users inside the Village and hold off on using metered usage in addition to MVC until the March billing. In March inside Village users will be billed the MVC plus usage rates for the December – February period.
Trustee Pasquarell, seconded by Trustee Halliday, approved December water/sewer
billing for inside Village users to consist of the Minimum Value Charge only
and exclude usage fees.
PUBLIC COMMENTS QUESTIONS & CONCERNS
Kate Halliday requested yellow driveway marking used on Oak St be continued on Main St north of Oak Street. The Board agreed and instructed Supt Lozier to do so; they also will alert the Sheriff’s Department of parking issues on Main Street during high school football games. Ms. Halliday thanked Trustee Kelly for her assistance with organizing the Bicentennial parade. Ms. Halliday also expressed the opinion that committees are discouraged by the Village when attempting to organize events. Ms. Halliday referred to a proposed “Glitter Run” the Rosenbrock family would like to hold at Pagenstecher Park. Trustee Kelly stated the Rosenbrocks were free to submit the request to the Board in writing with the required details for Board consideration as is the usual policy of the Village.
BOARD COMMENTS, QUESTIONS & CONCERNS – none.
Trustee Pasquarell, seconded by Trustee Halliday, that Board adjourn, 7:05 PM.
