June 23, 2014

VILLAGE OF ORFORDVILLE Regular Board Meeting Monday, June 23, 2014 7:00 P.M. Orfordville Village Hall CALL TO ORDER President David Olsen called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. Present were President Olsen, Gary Phillips, Kathy Schindler, Dale Peterson, Kurt Fullmer, Beth Schmidt, and Russell Rucker. Also present were Karl Stuvengen, Sarah Strunz, Jason Johnson, Kris Johnson, and Clerk Sherri Waege. Members of the Orfordville Library Board present included Judy Albright, Marge Harker, and Kim Leuchtenberg. AGENDA VERIFICATION Clerk Waege verified that on June 20, 2014, copies of the agenda were delivered to the President and Trustees; and posted at the Village Hall, Library, and the Farmer’s & Merchant’s Bank. There were no additions made to the agenda. MINUTE APPROVAL Motion by Rucker, seconded by Fullmer to approve the minutes of the regular board meeting of June 9, 2014. Motion carried. CITIZENS WISHING TO BE HEARD None. UNFINISHED BUSINESS Contract with Advanced Disposal for Trash and Recycling Service. Jason Johnson was present regarding trash and recycling service. The Village has residents that would like to switch to the toter style of pick up. The Village has three years left on the current contract, which can be amended if the Village Board wants to switch how trash service is provided. Johnson explained that they do offer the tote style pick up with trash every week and recycling every other week. Johnson further explained that Advanced Disposal now charges for the totes, which would be $75.00 each if the entire village were to switch. Each resident would be required to purchase two totes, one for recycling and one for trash. Johnson further explained that the cost of having tote pick up is now more expensive. Johnson did not have an exact price but figured around $13.00 per month, residents currently pay $11.67 per month or $140.04 per year. Johnson explained that the entire village does not have to switch, and that they would work with the few that have requested to do so. Johnson also explained that the cost of the totes to the residents would be higher since they were not ordering a large quantity. Johnson will bring two proposals to the July 28, 2014 board meeting. The first proposal would be for the entire village to switch to the tote service, the second proposal would be for individual residents to switch to the tote service. Motion by Peterson, seconded by Phillips to table to the July 28, 2014 regular board meeting. Motion carried.

Motion carried. Resolution R-2014-04 Compliance Maintenance Report. Stuvengen explained that the Village did not pass the finance portion of the report due to the expenses for the wastewater treatment plant exceeding the annual revenues.
