Woodland Hills Sanitary District
April 2015 Minutes
The April meeting of the Woodland Hills Sanitary District was called to order at 6:00PM. In
attendance were: Randy Alexander, Evan Hutchings, Carol Crozman, Beth Haivala, Tyler
Trupe, Ed Striebel and Lois Lund.
Secretary’s Report: Randy asked if everyone had received and read the March minutes, and
asked if there were any changes to be made. Since Tyler Trupe is new to the board, he had not
received or read the March minutes. No changes were made. Evan made a motion to approve
the minutes, seconded by Randy and approved 40.
Income Report: Total water income for March was $4748.95. Total net income after expenses
was $2376.87. Carol made a motion to approve the Income report, seconded by Beth and
Water and Project Report: Ed reported that our water losses for the month of March were at
25%. On March 13, Morford Electric was called to repair a water leak on an old pressure relay
switch at pump house #1. The relay switch was eliminated, which eliminated the leak. On
March 24, Mainline replaced a valve that had been damaged during construction. The next day,
there was no water reported on Lark and parts of Woodland Drive. The pump at pumphouse #2
was running...Ed reported that the pump must have air locked causing it to run. That pump had
been running 21/2 hours per day. Ed replaced it with a new pump that we already had, this
pump is running 11/2 hours per day, now.
Ed has received a quote from Midco to clean our water reservoirs sometime during the next 2
months. Unfortunately, the quote did not include the green tanks on Lark. Ed will get this
additional quote. No action will be taken until the total quote is received.
Ed Striebel (Clearwater Consulting) has given us a revised Cost Estimate. The original did not
include any incidental costs. This revised version will be reviewed by the board. We also
received a new contract from Ed (Clearwater Consulting). The old contract was from 2003.
Some adjustments were made to the new contract to include: We reserve the right to adjust
fees and we have the right to terminate his contract.
This new contract and the Proposed Cost Estimate for water meter installation, meter reading
and administrative services was voted on by the board and approved 50
to contract with Clearwater Consulting & Water Management, LLC.
Ed reported that the Phase I of the project should be completed by midApril.
The asphalt cuts at the corner of Woodland and Chickadee will be done as soon as the plant opens up. Evan made a motion to approve the water and project report, seconded by Carol and approved 5-0.
Road Report: There was a tax deposit made into the account for the amount of $118.04.
Old Business: Randy reported that to place a small ad in the Foothills Monthly would be $40
New Business: Ed Striebel from Clearwater Consulting read the proposal and told the board
that he will be able to start installing meters in May. Evan made a motion to approve this and
was seconded by Randy, approved 5-0.
Woodland Hills Sanitary District has received the Secretary’s Award for Drinking Water
Excellence in 2014!
Resident Comments: Sue Jones asked if the compaction tests had been passed. Ed told her
that Ted had passed those tests. She also asked about chip sealing the lanes and who they
would contact, and also if there were seeding issues from the project...who would they contact.
Chip sealing the lanes is up to the residents along that particular lane, however, if there is a
crew in the area chip sealing on Woodland, those residents could ask to have their lane done
during this time. If there are any issues resulting from the seeding process, those comments
and concerns should be brought to the Woodland Hills Sanitary District, who in turn will take
them to AE2S.
Board Member Comments: None
Randy made a motion to adjourn the meeting with a second by Carol and the meeting was
adjourned at 6:56PM.
Respectfully submitted by Carol Crozman, Recording Secretary
