Woodland Hills Sanitary District
January 2021 Minutes
The January meeting of the Woodland Hills Sanitary District board was called to order at 6:36pm on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.
Roll Call: In attendance were Lois Lund, Ed Striebel (Clearwater Consulting) and board members Peggy Severson, Jim Stewart, John Knight and Garry Colasardo.
Adoption of Agenda: Garry presented the agenda to the board and it was unanimously adopted.
Secretary’s Report: The December minutes were unanimously approved.
Water losses were 15% in December (November losses were 12%)
A quiet month for the water system. Will Lind from Dakota Pump attended the meeting to explain a hike in the cost of monitoring our SCADA system. Previously the annual fee was $999 and now it is $2,340. The increase is due to additional insurance expense that Dakota Pump incurred. After a successful defense of a lawsuit the company was aware they had inadequate liability coverage and the increase in coverage necessitated a rate increase.
Road Report: A tax deposit of 5,883.80 was received. The board renewed the plowing service provided by Schulze Landscaping.
Old Business: The well-house door repair and roof repair is still pending.
New Business: Morford Electric installed dusk-to-down LED light around the Lark Lane building providing illumination west, north and east sides. Jim filed an insurance claim to recover some of the expense repairing a burst pipe that took place in June 2020.
Board member comments: Ski conditions at Terry Peak were briefly discussed. :-)
Resident comments: None.
The board adjourned the meeting at 7:15pm.
Carefully written up to the best of his ability by Jim Stewart.
