The following notes are provided in an effort to record the transactions of the meeting without editorial comment, except clarification of events.- Ralph Thompson, Washington Township

7 December 2007 DCRSD Meeting Notes

Present: Acting Chairman, Fehrman, Maxwell, Pruss, Dennerline. Adams and Enzweiler were not present.
Also Present: Executive Secretary, Doug Baer; Tom Quinn, Quinn Engineering; Benning, Secretary; Frank Kramer, Board Attorney; Robert Hrezo, Hrezo Engineering; Julia Barber, Sherman, Barber & Mullikin - CPA (part time); and Ralph Thompson.

Meeting started at approximately 7:00 PM in the Commissioner's Meeting Room. Meeting was not recorded.

Meeting Notes
Meeting Notes for November, 2007 approved (Moved by Maxwell and seconded by Dennerline).

Treasurer's Report
The report is the same as last month except that the DCRSD Savings account balance is $77,572.42.

Public Comment
Fehrman asked if there was any public comment. No response.

Special
Julia Barber, Sherman, Barber & Mullikin - CPA was present to provide a firm profile and indicate some of the services they can provide. They are located in Madison, IN and work for municipalities, water and waste water districts. Their services include setting utility rates and bond issues. They work on an hourly rate, that they feel is less than that of Umbaugh. They are subject to State Board of Accounts (Note: this is now Department of Local Government Finance - DLGF) and have helped with State Revolving Fund and Rural Development. She left after her presentation.

Serenity Ridge

Tom Quinn indicated the prebid meeting was attended by four potential bidders:
Logan Creek Construction (3550 North Dearborn Rd.)
Ty Harold
Myer(sp?) Property & Development
Mike Seavers(sp?) of Dave O'Mara

Bid due date is 12/31/2007 at 2:00 PM. Since this project is under the state minimum, prevailing wage is not required. The plans have filed with the Highway Engineer. The line is only crossing the road once diagonally under the pavement.
Also have a draft contract for LMH. On page 3 the correct number should be $5,000 in lieu of $30,000. It will be corrected. It is the same format used for Stewart Rd and Cole Ln. Kramer has not yet had a chance to review the contract.

West Aurora Project
Quinn indicated flowmeter measurements had been obtained at Randall and US 50 for approximately 17 days including 3 rain days. There is something 'spooky' in the readings. The higher peak flows were on non rain days. He thinks there is plenty of capacity for DCRSD. They referenced the USDA(sp?) rain gauge. He will complete the analysis and submit the report.

He has a proposed addendum for the PER. There are questions he cannot answer on the comments in the Larry Adams letter. The first paragraph describes the changes. GRW had 290 users, a house count comes to 141, taking out Texas Gas Rd and Mt. Tabor Church Rd. ( discussion on whether it is Mt. Tabor Church or Mt Tabor Rd. - latter is current.) The east-west section of Mt. Tabor is eliminated.

He asked if the financial reports had been audited - never done. The response to the Larry Adams letter to cause the PER to remain alive and current.

Maxwell found the volume and order of information commendable. Under GRW, he felt DCRSD was not getting the attention it should.

Quinn indicated the PER will establish Quinn Engineering as the engineer of record. Same questions were asked of GRW in 2004.

(Several people talking) _____ faster and easier than State Revolving Fund. What to do ___ optimize to use force main.

Fehrman asked when can they count houses and ask for a variance from state. Aurora project will be done January 1, 2008.

Maxwell indicated Dave planned to go to Indy CID(??). Maxwell wants to go along. If Greendale is going to 'blow' them off and not approve it, he doesn't want to go and waste time. They need to powwow to try to see if they can get agreement and go together or it is a waste of time. They want to get SDRSD or a couple of the members to go together and get it done.

Dennerline thinks it will happen immediately, as they (the state?) want Highridge fixed.

Maxwell asked about the contract fee on Serenity Ridge for the size.

(Quinn indicated the force main is 2900 feet long for 10- 15 houses in the entire subdivision.) It was a great deal of money.
Quinn indicated it was the same process to get it to bid, as a larger project.

The members have copies of the questions and assumptions for the treatment plant. Some answers will require input from the Board.

Fehrman suggested members take them home, make comments and get them back to Benning.

Maxwell asked if they should hold or proceed with Hardeback (sp?), since they are on a different tack. Benning indicated there were a lot of questions; but, they ought to proceed with the appraisal.

The issue of the road being private was raised and the Board will need an easement to access and maintain the treatment plant.

Maxwell suggested, given the current path, they suspend the questions for 60 days.
Benning indicated they should proceed with the questions so that the man can move forward (Hardeback?).

Some questions are engineering problems. Dennerline indicated someone else is interested in buying the property.

For appraisal, if another parcel is selected what is the value of a private plant - answer $0.

Quinn: Bids for Serenity Ridge will be handled on 1/3/2008.

Fehrman asked about Ordinance 2007-1 to require mandatory connection/fee for Stewart Rd. and Cole Ln.

Kramer said the availability fee assessment needs an ordinance, which will require a public hearing and notification. He has a draft. They could be ready at the next meeting. The customers are customers of Aurora. They do not have contracts with those who are not hooked on. The power of law allows them to require hookups. They can allow exceptions for new septics. Also, have the power to require people with property line within 300 feet to hookup. What does that mean.

Dennerline suggested sending letters to people who haven't hooked up. Need another group of people. There is an increase for those that would hook up now, $600 on pumps and $2,500 hook up fee. Have to talk to Randy(Turner).

Maxwell asked if DCRSD wants to permit, it's a Health Department issue. DCRSD could allow, not permit. If DCRSD invokes ordinance and not enforce, leave line out of first paragraph. May have to have paragraph to have Health Board review.

Dennerline: Oh, thanks.

Fehrman: Intent is to collect availability fee.

Kramer: Have two issues:
Do you want to force hook on?
Not require hook on; but, require annual fee?


Dennerline: Do they make application to the District, not the Health Board.

Fehrman: If application made, need to get input from the Health Board.

Maxwell: What about the Commissioner letter.

Kramer: I talked to Bob Ewbank, this is not the Commissioners' bailiwick. The Commissioners are not empowered.

Maxwell asked Thompson about the letter.

Thompson: The letter is composed; but not signed yet. The letter references the State Ordinance that says 'May' require and then references the existing County Ordinance, that says the resident cannot be forced to connect if they have a working system or a repairable system that is repaired.

Dennerline: Randy (Turner) doesn't want it (enforced hook up), want the availability fee, not to force hook up.

Maxwell: Can we do separate ordinances or one?
(several people talking didn't get all the statements.)

Baer: Which rates, State Law or County Ordinance?

Maxwell: Focus on availability and leave out mandatory.

Fehrman: DCRSD wants Health Board more involved than District.

Dennerline: ___average repairs are $8,000 to $12,000.

_______: Consider only last three paragraphs, eliminate mandatory hook ups.

Kramer: Wording came from the Regulations. Lehner had obtained the Regulation. Without our own lines we don't need the Regulation. Will need them for Highridge.
Serenity Ridge are customers of LMH. We're under different pressure. The requirement to pay when they hook on will pay back the other residents. They will put pressure on the neighbors to get their money back.


Fehrman asked if Stewart Rd. and Cole Ln. will set a precedent.

Kramer: Serenity Ridge is not DCRSD money, would like to others hook on, not forced. It is assumed people would want to hook on.

Maxwell: Couldn't this be broader? Or $12.35 per month for this project, this location. Could also cover lines in other places specific to dollar amounts.

Kramer indicated they can give notice to consider at the next meeting without the first paragraph.

Baer: How do we collect the money? Under interlocal agreement it is added to the water bill. They could pay the water only. Would Aurora turn off the water? (discussion by several people if Aurora could or would turn off water.) Would paragraph 2 force payment? This Board could force hook on, if they don't pay debt service. Otherwise, we couldn't force to pay - what will happen?

Some one asked Maxwell if he was on sewer. It is in front of his house; but, he's not hooked on.

Baer: It's wrong not to hook on.

Maxwell: Need to say________ need to hook on, if notice by the Board of Health. There has to be a process to force hook on.

Baer: If you don't who will force.

Dennerline: Need to do two ordinances. Need one to require hook on. Baer can go condemn whoever is not hooked on. (Baer didn't seem to like this.)

Baer said only three have hooked on on Stewart Rd.

Dennerline indicated St. Leon promised everybody would be hooked on to get the grant money (bond money??). They sued to save the grant money. Let people know DCRSD_______. They got to hook on, they missed out on the lower offer. Funding from Rural Development required high participation, Have to allow someone with operating system to not hook on. (Talked about high $ cost systems.)

Baer: Have option to not force hook on. Don't know how to put in ordinance, use common sense.

Fehrman: Can we have availability fee?

Dennerline: Need debt service. Can't run on negative profit and loss.

Kramer will start publication for tentative approval and schedule hearing.

Dennerline: Unless they plan on working on it.

Kramer: Only publish the first (ordinance). Hook on requires 90 days notice. If we don't proceed we lose a month's dollars.

Dennerline motioned to table, Maxwell seconded, all approved.

Board Membership
Kramer had, as requested at the last meeting, done an evaluation on expanding the Board membership. The law allows 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 or 13 members. Seven are currently appointed by various entities as approved by IDEM. Any change must be approved by IDEM. An amended petition must be sent to IDEM. A petition to amend is at IDEM. Under the original, the Commissioners appoint two members from two groups of townships and the petition was to move Sparta to the second group of townships. IDEM has never acted on this. The Board could do no requirements for appointees to be a member of the Board. Should it be left at 7 or increase to 9 to add Greendale and Lawrenceburg. Getting quorum is a concern. He doesn't know if Greendale and Lawrenceburg are interested.

Fehrman: Would they be appointed by them?

Kramer: If effluent is treated elsewhere in a municipality, the municipality shall appoint the member. Should it be Lawrenceburg or SDRSD? Would have made more sense for SDRSD, since they handle treatment and they are knowledgeable.

Dennerline said Newlon (IDEM) said they needed Aurora, when Baer, Benning and he were working to set up the Board. While it was weighted toward Dillsboro, it was heavily weighted toward US 50 and Aurora. We are at the point to be more diversified. We'll need to add St. Leon, Moores Hill and Dillsboro.

Kramer suggested they not have districts, just must be residents of the County, and own real estate. RSDs are not a democratic society.

Dennerline: Benning, Baer and he went through all of this and all the political of the County. Sewer district is another governmental agency.

Kramer: It is a governmental corporation, not subject to politics.

Fehrman: Should it be SDRSD in lieu of Greendale and Lawrenceburg?

Dennerline: Send letters to the governing bodies to see if they are interested. We've got a bunch of things coming down (from State) with all kinds of demands for Sewer Districts and treatment.

Maxwell: Get input from the municipalities.

Kramer: Then we can file a modification with IDEM.

Dennerline moved and ______ seconded to have Kramer draft a letter to Greendale and Lawrenceburg.

Dennerline: SDRSD is the brainchild of the three, since Seagrams is gone. It behaves as a facility for treatment rather than a district

Maxwell: Lawrenceburg and Greendale are municipals and members of SDRSD, wouldn't want them contrary to SDRSD.

Dennerline: If they don't agree. Lawrenceburg and Greendale are extending now and need to get them on board and get their input. Guilford is a pressure and the State will come in. Greendale is the logical one to serve it. Aurora had to be on because it was served through Aurora.

Kramer: Petition will be amended to name Aurora. (It listed municipality in the petition.)

Motion passed.

Fehrman: Dave Enzweiler is up for reappointment by 12/31/07. Asked that Dave be reappointed.

Dennerline moved ______seconded that Benning draft a letter to the Commissioners asking to reappoint Enzweiler.

Benning: Has he agreed?

The question was also asked about a letter recommending Steve Renn(?) for Hankins replacement. He has asked for the position. There was a question about realigning the Board. Maxwell asked if the Jimmie Adams spot was vacant. Kramer suggested, rather than expanding the the Board, pick up the municipalities. He was concerned about quorum issues. It was decided not to act till a response from Lawrenceburg and Greendale.

Maxwell asked about Adams missing all the meetings, any action?

Claims

Baer indicated claims to County were due Tuesday, so they submitted miscellaneous claims. These came in after. He wants to take the advertising for the Serenity Ridge bidding out of the Serenity Ridge account. They received $100 from the plan sets and the advertising cost $68. Also toner for the printer for $180.08.
Benning: Umbaugh will probably present a bill for services in 2007. Don't have money budgeted. About $20,000.

Baer: No money for Umbaugh. Umbaugh has done work, if they present a bill. Umbaugh will probably submit when the West Aurora loan is obtained.

Dennerline moved, Maxwell(?) seconded to pay claims. Approved.

2008 Meeting Schedule

Dennerline suggested to advertise for two meetings a month and cancel the second in January, to save cost of re advertising. Advertise the first and third Thursday and in January decide the status of the second meeting. This will reserve the room as well.

Dennerline moved and Maxwell seconded to adjourn. Approved.

Adjourned at approximately 9:00 PM.

After the adjournment, Maxwell was talking to Fehrman saying they needed to fix Highridge. Then they could pickup Cheeks vote. Everybody wants Highridge fixed.

You just have to love the fact that these folks keep going back to THEIR two "false" choices!

There are vast number of choices, but they do not include getting others to subsidize the sewers needed by a couple of politically connected realtor/developers!

Dillsboro is the only player that can take on High Ridge without forcing everyone and their brother on to these sewers!

County Council and Commissioners, cannot you not see that the DCRSD will do nothing for High Ridge until Fehrman and Maxwell get the opportunity to force everyone on their sewers to lower cost of the sewers they require for their development!

This Board has no concept of building out from existing infrastructure, in an economically and politically palatable fashion!

They want, what they want, when they want it...no matter the cost to the taxpayer and those unfortunate enough to live around farms the politically connected buy up and then wish to subdivide!

The DCRSD has no internal governor, no failsafe, that would protect the taxpayer and potential “customers” from the exorbitant expenses of a “DEVELOPMENT” driven sewer district!

Look at all the delusional "big talk" of the Board members, but with what funding?

Other than stealing if from the taxpayers through "forced hook-ups!"

Fix High Ridge…then let development happen naturally…not by the placing a gun to heads of our neighbors, friends and families!

Everyone connected with the dcrsd are waiting for the forced hookup letters to be sent out to pay their respective bills!

A special thanks must go out to our perpetually deceitful political hacks, Benning, Fox and Hughes for giving these SOBs access to our savings!

Just think, if they had studied hard, worked hard, took a course or two in ethics, they would have never have found themselves in a position to serve their bastard development masters…and to act as coconspirators to the pillage of our neighbors, friends and family!

The DCRSD Board keeps having their wings clipped by County Council The County Commissioners tell them they do not support forced hookups or having them force others who do not need sewers to pay for them, yet, what do they keep doing?

They flop back down in their same old filth and conspire again to force sewers on those who do not need them to subsidize development!

Now the DCRSD is back to making their big plans, with no money to pay for them, other than forcing those around Brett and John's proposed, or wished for development, to hook up or pay "availability fees," meaning forcing others to pay for the sewer lines out to Brett and John's development!

Which means, the DCRSD is still lost on economically and efficiently planning "growth" from existing infrastructure out!

They want to force "growth" wherever and whenever a politically connected realtor/developer can buy up farm land!

Every investment by these politically connected realtor/developers must be a short term one with profits made as soon as possible, no matter what it costs the taxpayer and those surrounding these "investments!"

Pick a spot, any spot in Dearborn County!

Then have a politically connected realtor/developer buy some farm land there!

Following the DCRSD’s course for “growth” and “development,” the only thing holding them back running sewers clear out to that farm land, is the time it takes to send letters to those living around this farm, demanding, by force of law, that they pay to run the sewers to this realtor/developers new “investment” or face the legal consequences!

The DCRSD is a crooked extortion racket to aid our local politically connected realtor/developers, nothing more!

However, most of the "growth" that is being proposed and campaigned for here is just simply heavily taxpayer subsidized "make work and profit" for a politically connected few in this county.

Subsidizing expensive sewers for a handful of "connected" realtor/developers is not going to bring wealth to this county...other than the handful of "connected" realtor/developers who can now sell their homes cheaper because of our forced contributions to better pad their bottomlines.

Further, sewering on the "cheap" entire regions of rural land, which require pumps that do not work during our many power outages is just nuts. Which may be why Maxwell himself refuses to hook his home onto St. Leons pressurized sewer lines.

"Growth" should be about creating wealth, not transfering it from the politically less powerful to the politically more powerful.

Anonymous said...

You forgot to mention the growth up in the nw quad was base upon the landowners there being bamboozled out of their land at rural prices for those with inside information could buy it up and sell it at much higher prices.

We were required to subsidize these folks wealth by selling our property well below the "real," but kept secret by our own public officials, price!!!!!!

I wonder if Morris will try to trick Republican Thompson next year by placing his name on a flyer seemingly supporting the two Democrats running in the place of defeated Fox and Hughes over the two victorious Republicans?

I wonder if Morris will do that?

Some of us wonder if Morris is capable of doing anything that is not development driven at the expense of the rest as we are forced and coerced to do all the financing and subsidizing of their "development"?

Like all that "expanding" of our tax base by giving our tax base away in abatements and other sweetheart deals to their buddies!

We cannot have "growth" in this County unless the rest of us are forced into bankruptcy paying for "growth's" sewers!

Unless you are John Maxwell, of course, on the sewer board, refusing to hook up to these sewers, to do his "fair share" in paying for this County's "growth!"

But that is ok, John is one of the "self-appointed" and "self-annointed!"
