............  ............. www.tricountynews.mn Legal Notice UNOFFICIAL MINUTES CLEARWATER RIVER WATERSHED DISTRICT BOARD OF MANAGERS MEETING OCTOBER 9, 2013 - 7:00 P.M. ANNANDALE MIDDLE SCHOOL, ANNANDALE, MN Chair Schiefelbein called the regular meeting to order at 7 p.m. Managers Jerry Risberg, Paul DeGree, Mary Ellen Wells and Bob Schiefelbein were present. Also in attendance were Commis- sioner Christine Husom, Dorothy Welch, Doug Von Arb, Jack Glea- son, Jeff Golden, John Schmitz, Keith Sadowsky, Orville Jonsrud, Nathan Miller, Robert Kuechle, Cole Loewen, Engineer Rebecca Kluckhohn, Advisor Merle Ander- son, and Administrator Dennis Loewen. Motion #13-10-1: DeGree, sec- onded by Risberg, move d to adopt the Agenda. All managers voted aye. Dorothy Welch, Jack Gleason, and Keith Sadowsky, on behalf of the Lake Augusta Association, presented a petition to the Board of Managers to amend the Lake Augusta Milfoil Treatment Proj- ect to Lake Augusta Aquatic Inva- sive Species Project. Motion #13-10-2: Wells, sec- onded by Risberg, made a motion to accept the petition from the Lake Augusta Association and to have staff verify the petition meets applicable statutes. All Managers voted aye. Motion #13-10-3: Risberg, sec- onded by DeGree, made a motion to approve the consent agenda. All managers voted aye. Motion #13-09-4: Wells, sec- onded by DeGree, made a motion to pay bills of $84,655.09 in 25 payments, subject to audit. All managers voted aye. Advisor Anderson led discus- sion on the common interest property and its relationship with the Old Highway 55 component of the Cedar Lake Watershed Pro- tection and Improvement Project. Several questions and comments were fielded from the audience. Engineer Kluckhohn explained the several options available for this component. The Board asked for those in attendance from the common interest property to let staff know before November 1, 2013, if they were interested in moving forward with an agree- ment to use part of the common interest property for this compo- nent of the project. John Schmitz asked several questions regarding his spe- cial assessment for the Cedar Lake Watershed Protection and Improvement Project, as well as the operation and maintenance assessment for Project #06-1. Doug Von Arb, John Schmitz, Nathan Miller, and Robert Kue- chle left the meeting at 8:15 p.m. The Board directed staff to move forward with the pur- chase of the Dubay property. The Board also directed the Dis- trict Engineer to move forward with design of the current con- cept for Old Highway 55. This is with the understanding that if the common interest property own- ers contact District staff before November 1, 2013, to indicate they want to move forward with an agreement to use part of the com- mon interest property, the design may need to be changed. This would likely push back the cur- rent timeline for construction of the Old Highway 55 component. Engineer Kluckhohn and Administrator Loewen gave an update on the status of the Kings- ton Wetland Restoration Project. Remaining work to be completed by the construction contractor was noted, as well as Engineer Kluckhohn's poster on the proj- ect to be displayed at the Water Resource Conference, which can be counted towards fulfillment of the education requirement of the work plan for this project's grant. Engineer Kluckhohn and Administrator Loewen gave an update on the status of the Kim- ball Stormwater Phase II proj- ect. With easements moving for- ward, and CP Rail giving prelim- inary approval, Engineer Kluck- hohn asked the Board for permis- sion to allow the District Engineer and staffto go out for bids. Motion #13-10-5: Risberg, sec- onded by Wells, made a motion to allow the District Engineer and staff to go out for bid for the Kim- ball Stormwater Phase II Project. All managers voted aye. Cole Loewen provided an update of the insurance coverage the District currently carries with the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust (LMCIT), along with an overview of the renewal submitted to the LMCIT for next year's coverage period.
