PUBLIC PARTICIPATION.

Mr. Dalla Rosa from the Billings Assembly of God Church addressed the Board concerning the perceived feeling of the church that they were being harassed about the cutting of their grass.  They have received two letters regarding mowing.  It was their understanding that as long as they bought a $5.00 hay permit, the grass could grow beyond 12”.  Chief explained if the grass was cut for hay it could grow to 24”, however if it was just bush hogged then it could only be 12” before they would be issued a letter of non-compliance.  Chief explained they were not being harassed.  Mr. Dalla Rosa stated they did not understand that the Ordinance was written in that way.

 

OLD BUSINESS.

  6. Mayor would ask to have approval to purchase twenty tons of sand to be put under the swings at the Park. The price is $28.50 a ton for a total of $570.00.  Motion to purchase the sand for the park made by Brown seconded by Harter.  Voting “Aye” Woods, Fender, Brown, Harter and Huffman.  Voting “Nay” None.  No abstentions.
  7. Woods stated has concerns about water and sewer rates being raised 15% every year, they voted this in 2011, with no sunset. At that time it is obvious that was needed then, since that time it has doubled, which when compared to other small towns in the area is the same.  Woods thinks the Ordinance needs to be amended, because we have no control over the increases.  It needs to be reviewed every year.

We should evaluate yearly.  Huffman asked why it was increased in the first place.

Hopkins stated when she started in 2006 there had been no increases for years.  A rate study by a company would have cost the City $3,000.00, so there was a committee formed from the Board.  They came up with a 5% increase on the water and 10% for the sewer to be implemented for January usage of each year.  There is a chart in your book.  In 2012 we were placed under an EPA mandate to make repairs for water and sewer.  In 2016 a Bond was passed for water and sewer improvements.  In the comparison of the increases for the period from 2018 to 2022

there will be 5.79 on the water and 13.01 on the sewer for a total increase for five years of 18.80.  Hopkins contacted the Bonding company, our rates should be 2% of our median income, which is $34,861.00, that would be $69.72 for water and sewer.  If the increase stay the same in the year 2022 the cost for water and sewer would be

$61.01 a difference of $8.71.  The charges would be under what the Bonding Company says we should be charging to maintain payments for the Bond and upkeep.  The Bond Contract states rate must be sufficient to maintain the debt service of 110% for the Bond payments.  Woods stated needs to be reevaluated yearly.  Woods made a motion that the rates are evaluated yearly by the Board and not increased without their approval before the Budget is done seconded by Harter.

Voting “Aye” Woods, Brown and Harter.  Voting “Nay” None.  Abstentions Fender and Huffman.  Brown stated will be reviewed in October.  Taylor stated it did not pass.  Petrus stated this means the Ordinance needs to be changed.  Petrus stated the old ordinance will have to be repealed before any reevaluating of the rate increases can be done.  Petrus will have the Ordinance for July meeting.

  1. Ms. Brandt has arrived.  Thanked the Board for giving her the opportunity to

address the Board.  They had 8 bids.  They have scheduled another meeting for next week.  Will have a ground breaking ceremony in mid July.  A tentative completion date is January, 2018.

  1. Woods would like to combine the Fair Board and the Park Board. The Park Board has to be citizens of the city.  Fair Board is not interested in the Park Board.  The revenue that comes in is paid out in maintenance and upkeep of the Park.  Hopkins stated 2,388.00 share of lawn mower, 288.00 for Memorial Wall and Flags, 200.00 for Easter egg Hunt, 25.00 vehicle Maint., 47.69 for Maint. in the park,  808.00 for park portion of Audit,  15.73 for fuel,  contact labor 60.00 repair to bathroom,  17.14
