Letcher Town Board proceedings

July 8, 2013

Mayor Chada called the meeting to order with Ackman, Knutson, Hoffman, and Hohbach in attendance. Also meeting with the board were f. Blindauer, K. Blindauer, and T. Kelly.
Water/Sewer: Discussion was held on the lift station not functioning properly. Chada will contact Dakota Pump. Ackman was instructed to contact District III and ask if the sewer project is scaled back – will the funding also be scaled back? Discussion was also held on applying for USDA funding. There was some confusion regarding the reading of the water meters on June 15. Customers will be sent billing or the minimum’s with an explanation as soon as possible.
Community Center: The board discussed the disappearance of the wheel chairs belonging to the Legion. A search was held with no results.
West Nile: C&J will once again fog with the rates remaining at $75/per person and $.55 per mile.
A motion was made by Hoffman, seconded by Knutson, carried, to approve the June minutes as read.
Old business: Library opening was discussed with Kelly and Blindauers. They have offered to open it for the summer months and every other Saturday on a trail basis. They hope to coordinate with a 4-H group for youth activities. The board agreed to their proposal with a motion from Knutson, seconded by Hoffman, carried.
New Business: A motion was made by Knutson, seconded by Hoffman, to pursue USDA funding contingent upon the answer from District III regarding the possibility of cutting back the project. Therefore:
