Randy Daeger reported on the Utility Committee meeting held on April 11, 2018. One of the topics that was discussed was the installation of a water meter at the First Responder Training facility. It was decided by the committee that there will be no water usage until meter was installed. There was also concern that the testing for bacteria was not performed on the new water line. This will need to be confirmed. Ryan Mapes talked to the project engineer Scott Strahley and verified that pressure tests and bacteria tests have been done on this water line. The engineer also said that a “T” with a stub was installed so that a water line could be extended at a later date. The next topic was regarding a new meter installed at the Old Utility Office/Old Firehouse. The new owner will be contacted to see how many lines they will actually need then a water meter will be installed. The last topic that was discussed was about the level of the new water meter pits. The engineering firm will be contacted to see what the specs are for the level of the pits.
Tim Boss reported on the Recreation Committee meeting held on April 11, 2018.

Randy Daeger presented the letter from Lengacher Brothers regarding the Shop roof. John Lengacher has inspected the roof both below and above. He stated that all of the decking is in very good shape except for the section on the east end of the building. The new sloped roof structure that we will install in this area would at no point be depending on this comprised roof decking for support. The new slope structure would be bearing on the parapet wall at the end of the building and on the existing structural purlins at the bearing wall approximately 20 feet in from the edge of the building. John Lengacher also stated that they will not install any roof system over compromise decking. He is confident that the decking is in very good shape for the Conklin SPF roof system. David Burtch is going to make contact with another contractor.
