The storm sewer was under the house and garage. It was re-routed, but during the process the City found a concrete structure very large in the way. The concrete structure was from an old pump station. The City had to take it out and fill in the area. The soil also had to be removed.

Motion and second were made by Aldermen Putrich/Nelson to approve the change order request from Otto Baum Company.

Streets And Garbage
Alderman Justin Nelson, Chairman
Discuss, Consider And Vote On An Order For 120-95 Gallon And 112-65 Gallon Garbage Totes And Possible Design Change-
The City is running low on the current totes that were ordered and needs to replenish the supply.
The proposed order is the minimum number of totes that can be ordered at any one time. The design change is to help accommodate the garbage trucks when they pick up the totes with their tipper. The City will be able to get the newer totes faster than they could get the older style of totes. The logo and the color will be the same on the new totes.
The new totes carry a 10 year warranty. The quality is very good and citizens would not be able to purchase a tote for less cost. The total cost is $11,862.48 and will come from the garbage budget. Rerig pacific with the new design
Motion and second were made by Aldermen Nelson/Putrich to approve the purchase of the new garbage totes from Rehrig Pacific.
Lake, Buildings And Grounds
Alderman Tad Putrich, Chairman
Fire Station And Depot Roof Repairs From Hail Storm-
Attorney Lane said that the City was made aware that the fire station and the depot had additional hail damage after the initial claim was filed. City Clerk Diana Pavley Rock is working with the contractor and the insurance company to try to get resolved. The City had coverage with MICA insurance group during the hail storm in April 2017, but then the City switched insurance companies in May 2017. The old insurance company would still be responsible to cover the claim, but they are claiming they do not see damage based upon the photos sent in.
Photos were sent to the insurance company and an inspection was performed by Holthous Roofing. Holthous Roofing is stating that both of the roofs sustained damage from the hail storm. Attorney Lane sent a letter to the insurance company explaining that we disagree with their comment that they do not see damage and that we want to appeal their internal decision.
Some of the companies we use are not wanting to put the time into meeting with the adjuster or doing any additional work in putting quotes together if they are not going to get the work. The City can't guarantee that the work witl be going to any specific contractor.
Attorney Lane said that the City is looking at contractors to come out to look at the damage. Attorney Lane and City Clerk Pavley Rock will continue to work together to get this resolved.
A boil order is beginning this Thursday until further notice from boat dock road, del bar, north shore and the campground. The City has a major break in one of the lines at the water department. The city is currently working on fixing the problem. The water may be off for 4-5 hours in this area.

Kevin Rhodes to the Revolving Loan Committee.
Motion and second were made by Aldermen Nelson/Putrich to accept the appointments.
Motion and second were made by Aldermen Nelson/Lingenfelter to adjourn. The motion carried by voice vote and was unanimous.
