December 13, 2017
The regular monthly meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Unadilla, Nebraska, was held on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, 7:30 p.m. at the Unadilla Community Library. Notice of said meeting and proposed agenda of then known subjects was given by posting in the three following places within the Village: Countryside Bank, Post Office, and Community Center Notice Board; and by serving a copy of said notice to each member of the Board of Trustees more than 5 days prior to said meeting. Trustees present: Dan Crownover, Dale Stoner, Scott Hincker, Janet Oelke, and Lynn Schomerus. Visitors: none
Chairman Crownover called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. He reminded everyone of the location of the Open Meetings Act Poster.
Stoner made a motion to approve the November 2017 minutes; Oelke seconded, and motion carried 4-0.
Schomerus made a motion to approve the November 2017 treasurerâ€™s report; Hincker seconded, motion carried 4-0.
The Keno check was in the amount of $2,326.77
Water consumed: (637,000); water paid for: (531,000); balance for month:
(-106,000); YTD: (-1,804,000). Discussion was held on the recent water tests. The Community Center tested 1 for E. coli which put the village into a water boil notice. The Village has been working closely with DHHS and RWD#3 on the water. The field representative came down and thought it was the school not using enough water to flush the lines like they should be with a bigger water line coming into the building. Samples from other parts of the village continue to come back good. The Cease Water Boil signs were put up the 20th. Bohl Plumbing was contacted to shut the water off to the back classrooms and menâ€™s locker room. The Village will continue to take samples and monitor the water. The schoolhouse will be taken off our sample site plan.
Schoolhouse items: Clerk reported the heating units were working well in the classrooms and the utility bill was lower this last month. The new street light out front of the gym is lighting up the parking lot and will be a lot safer for the public at night.
Coop Property: Attorney Jerry Stilmock is waiting to see the corrected copy of the Deed. Chairman Crownover will deliver that to him. Tom Compton has offered to manage renting out the Quonset for campers, boats, etc. in exchange for parking his camper at no charge.
