Attorney Bruce Fader
Attorney Fader was present on behalf of Rya Corporation and Myers Nursery. He explained that he has submitted an application to OPM requesting a change in the Sewer Service Area Map. He will be appearing before the Continuing Legislative Committee on Planning and Development requesting an interim change. If the Committee approves this change, he will then come back to the WPCA for approval. Attorney Cummings has drafted a letter to the Committee at Mr. Anderson’s request. Attorney Purnhagen distributed copies of the draft letter. Mr. Anderson asked if the Board was in favor sending the letter. There was a lengthy discussion concerning the letter and the Sewer Service Area. Mr. Leslie explained that the WPCA will be servicing the pump station for Kement’s project; if there are more
connections, they would be operating at a profit instead of a loss. Planning and Zoning would like to see this project completed; it is the third phase and was intended to have septic, but it was over excavated and can’t have septic. Mr. Barton felt that if they send the letter, it will give the impression of rubber stamping the approval. There was some discussion of the wording of the letter. It was decided that the last sentence of the last paragraph would be moved to the end of the fourth paragraph and in the third paragraph would add that the application was denied without prejudice.
Motion: To authorize the WPCA Attorney to send the letter with the suggested changes.
In favor: Tyler, Davis, Livings
Attorney Fader thanked the Board and left the meeting at 7:55 p.m.
Attorney Landolina and Jim Giorgio of Newberry Village were present at the meeting concerning the Newberry Road Assessments. Mr. Leslie explained that the assessments were based on the 2007 Grand List. Since then some of the properties have changed ownership. Mr. Giorgio questioned whether the assessments should go to the individual owner or the association? Attorney Purnhagen said to notify all interested parties of the assessments. Some parcels of this project have been split up and can’t be identified on the 2007 Grand List. Attorney Landolina offered to help Mr. Leslie with identifying the parcels.
Attorney Landolina and Mr. Giorgio left the meeting at this time.
