There was discussion on the billing of the utilities and what will the County directly pay and what will the District pay. There will be a meeting in May to discuss the billing program for the sewer.
Autumn Blaze Lot The District could purchase the corner lot with the main lift pump in front for $25,000.00 if the east 50 feet were transferred to the lots to the east of the property, if an easement agreement would be signed for crossing the lot owned by Jeff Barstad on Dylanâs Lookout for $5,000.00, the zoning would not be changed on the lot to allow for maintenance buildings, and the generator be turned 90 degrees. The generator will not be moved, and the 50 feet could be split off if given to the adjoining lot to the east. The Commission also wanted the stipulation put on the agreement that the landowner to the east could not come back on the District and that the lot will not be allowed to be rezoned, must maintain residential zoning, the seller agrees to pay all legal fees, District will pay a one-time maximum allowance of $500 to visually screen the lift station, and the allowance of the $5,000.00 easement for the crossing of Dylanâs Lookout to Kuehlâs Subdivision. Ã Motion (07-04-16g) Moved by Jon Hoyme, seconded by Ted Haugen to approve the purchase option for the Barstad property on Autumn Blaze Estates, Lot 1, Block 2, minus the eastern fifty (50) feet with approved stipulations. Motion carried unanimously. Sewer workshop, will ask Chuck if this is appropriate to go to. Discussion on main lift station on the north end of Pleasant View Road, It is supposedly placed too high out of the ditch. There was a rumor that a grinder station was put in for Phase II already, I guess not.
Next Meeting Date The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 26, 2007 at 4:00 p.m.
Ã Motion (07-04-16h) Moved by Jon Hoyme, seconded by Tom Gervais to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried unanimously. Meeting adjourned
