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. 


Income Report


December highlights:


Water Report: 

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.
