The minutes from the February 22, 2018 meeting were discussed.
Motion by Lynn Chamberlain to approve the minutes from February 22, 2018. Second by Randy Reeve. Motion carried by unanimous vote.
Mike talked about the change order for the Dixie Springs Pipe line. The district will be cutting a 15-foot section for the sewer line. When the city builds the road, it will be 75 feet. The original change order was for 899,820.00. there are some things that mike will be removing from the change order but would like the go ahead to sign it to get the work moving. He would like to have the cut and sewer line in before the State extends SR 7. Two developers have agreed to put $250,000.00 each towards the project and will be paid back when the project is part of the capital facilities plan. This will get the project started quicker. Hurricane City has also agreed to pay half of the costs as part of the road impact fee but did not know when that would be. Mayor Bramall thought that now was the best time to do this type of work. He thought that it was much better to the blasting now than when there were homes and other utilities in the area.
Motion by Richard Hirschi to approve the change order for $899,920.00, half of that to be paid back by Hurricane City in the next few years. Second by Kevin Tervort. Motion carried by unanimous vote.
Mike said that he has met with the confluence park and is going forward with the Confluence park treatment plant. He is estimating that project and the bench lake will be about $3,500,000.00 from this year’s budget. He was hoping to present the new capital facilities plan at the April meeting. This plan will have the Bench Lake project and SR-9. He thought that the fee could possibly go down because so many new connections could be added. He wanted to make sure that the board was in favor of moving forward with both of those projects before he contracted with an engineer to start them. He thought that it would stretch the inspection staff to have two large projects going at the same time. Mayor Bramall suggested applying for CIB money to lock in the interest rate at 1%. He thought it would be worth filling out the paper work. Mike said he would investigate it.
Motion by Lynn Chamberlain to move forward with working on both projects at the same time. Second by Kevin Tervort. Motion carried by unanimous vote.
Mike reported that the repair was completed on 755 Peach Tree in Toquerville. The homeowners were able to get the Affordable Homes people to pay for their part of the repair.
Mike reported that LaVerkin City has purchased the old camel truck.
Mike talked about some of the billing corrections that have been done.
