Bart Nies – Delta 3 Engineering – Update – Bart updated the Board on the status of the grants he is getting in place for the Village. Gave Capital Improvements Plan copies to Rlchard and Marvin. CDBG Grant is due in May. Priorities 1, 2, and 3. Gave overview of his services for new board members. Apply for $500 k in May, the other $600k is Village, and we apply to DNR and low-interest loan. We get 75% paid by grant, 25% paid by 1.9% loan.App is due 5/25/17. Are we still on track to do those three projects, so Bart can go forward. Adds up to 1.1 to 1.2 million, project to be done next year. Discussion followed. Bart said the mains we have are inadequate to handle today’s consumption, and that is what Bart has to prove to get the grant money. June 30th is the DNR deadline. Have to have prove-able, permit-able plans designed and prepared by June 30th. $25-30k engineering cost which is not wasted, because it has to be done anyway. Do we do it now, or wait until August to find out if we get the CDBG, we would have to wait then until next year for DNR grant money. Need data on water breaks and bad water samples to make a strong application. It is all eligible to be reimbursed by DNR. Best case is to get it in now, get the DNR grant money now, then can get it out for bids in the spring, DNR, IT & PERF was 85% in October. Score of 85 and higher, you can get a grant. Better than 50-50 chance on both of them. This is a win-win because we get our water system replaced, plus we get our roads fixed. Go to the bank, get what Bart needs, take a note out for it, pay the interest on it, so Delta can go ahead and submit the project. Motion Harry/Richard. All yes, Carried.Two important meetings one in May, and one in June. Has to be a Public Hearing. Would Wednesday night work? All yes. Two dates the 10th or the 17th. Send Bart the e-mail info for Diane Baumgartner at Home News. May 10th at 7:00. June 20th at 7:00. Public Hearing is #1 for Agenda, then Village Board Meeting immediately to follow.

Plus tax, the price was $914. Then Karen discovered that their old PC is an all-in-one unit, meaning we had to purchase a monitor, too. The monitor was $227. Harry/Marvin All favor, Carried.
