VILLAGE OF WAUSA

REGULAR MEETING MINUTES

July 6, 2015

The regular meeting of the Village of Wausa Board of Trustees was called to order Monday, July 6, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Schumacher. Board members present: Schumacher, Nelson, Clausen, and Burns. Absent: Seagren. City employees present: Bloomquist, Callahan, and Kleinschmit. Also present: Dan Schlote, Bob Altwine, Jane Wilbeck, and Dave Carlson.

Chairman Schumacher stated the Open Meetings Act is posted in the Village Clerk’s office.

Dan Schlote, Knox County Supervisor discussed street assistance for the towns in the county. Some of the other smaller communities asked for assistance. They will offer one day worth of labor and machine to grind or patch spots or to come armor coat. This year they plan on working in Center and Verdigre. If the Village is interested, he wants the Board to let him know. He said the taxpayers are looking for some cooperation between the county and towns. Schlote said he will check on prices of oil. The Board said they would appreciate their assistance. The Board said the worst spots are on Clark Street and that street would need to be done first.

Bob Altwine from Western Roofing discussed an estimate for the auditorium roof. He showed pictures they took of the roof. He has been coming a couple times a year to take care of leaks. Now it is starting to pull off of the walls really bad and is tearing the seam. He said the Board needs to consider doing something in the near future. There is a 20-year material warranty. The metals caps can be reused. The Village currently has quotes for ½ or all of the roof. Right now they have been keeping up with patching. The Board said they could budget for it at the budget workshop. The Board said they would like budget figures for the whole north part to the new part that was installed in 2012. He left pamphlets on the roofing system. They have installed this roofing system in Neligh, Newman Grove, and Randolph.

It was moved by Burns and seconded by Clausen to change the agenda. Ayes: Nelson, Schumacher, Clausen, and Burns. Nays: None. Absent: Seagren. Motion carried.

Jane Wilbeck discussed having a new sign by the auditorium, which will replace the old sign. It is electronic and the school is responsible for putting events up on the marquee. People will be able to see it on the east and the west side. The current estimate from Love Signs is $29,793.21. They can use the existing pole, and that should take about $1,000 off of the estimate. The only issue would be trenching to run it, but they might be able to run off of the light pole. At the next school board meeting, they will be asking the school board members to pay for half of the cost. They will also ask the Community Club to kick in some funds. She will also apply for funding with the Knox County Tourism Committee. The only cost to the Village is to get the electricity to the pole. It was moved by Burns and seconded by Clausen to go ahead with the electronic sign. Ayes: Nelson, Schumacher, Clausen, and Burns. Nays: None. Absent: Seagren. Motion carried.

Dave Carlson discussed the lift station. He also wondered if it is large enough to handle possible additional housing. It was moved by Nelson and seconded by Burns to contact JEO Consulting Group. Ayes: Clausen, Schumacher, Burns, and Nelson. Nays: None. Absent: Seagren. Motion carried.

Employee Reports: Utility Superintendent Bloomquist said someone threw a firecracker in the stool at the park, and it had to be replaced. He also reviewed the annual well efficiency tests. Nitrate levels at the wells were both under 1 ppm. There are two new rural water hookups in the McLean area.

Mr. Hoesing provided a slide show with the 2015 Five-School Consolidation survey results.

The board was appreciative of the returned surveys and glad the community is involving themselves and helping the board move in the direction of the community. Based on results received the community is in favor of some part of cooping if necessary in the future. The Board is also in favor of continuing to work with other schools to find ways to help each other. Board members discussed what proceeding means, they discussed that they need to clarify what proceeding forward would be. The possibility of changing objectives was brought to light.
