7 January 2008 Lawrenceburg City Council Hears St. Leon Sewer District Plea for Money

7 January 2008 Lawrenceburg City Council Hears St. Leon Sewer District Plea for Money

Present: Bill Cunningham, Mayor, JR Holdcraft, Vice Mayor, Tony Abbott, Bill Bruner, Donnie Bryant, Mario Todd, Jackie Stutz, Clerk-treasurer, Joe Votaw, Attorney, and Tom Steidel, City, Manager.
Gene Hunefeld, Police Chief, and Mel Davis Utility Director, were also present.

John Watson, Attorney for St. Leon and the Sewer Board addressed Council and introduced: Chuck Hale, of the Sewer Board, Frank Leone, of EES the sewer operator/engineers, and Doug Farrow, of the Town Board of St. Leon.

He presented a letter and materials requesting financial assistance for the expansion of the St. Leon Sewer Plant located near SR46/SR52. The plant capacity is 300,000 gpd and has lines traversing SR1 down past Zimmer Road, along much of North Dearborn to Bright mad serves the elementary school, and along Whites Hill and part of Mount Pleasant. They estimate they are at 75% of capacity now. With the pending requests they are getting they need to expand. IDEM has given them approval to expand to a maximum of 1.1million gpd. They studied expansion and decided to go past 600,000 to about 740,000 gpd which will double plus a little extra what they currently have. St. Leon wants to build incrementally if they can so as not to go too far into debt. Cost is $4.68 million.

DCRSD (Dearborn County Regional Sewer District) requested to participate to get capacity and DCRSD participated in the study with about a 55/45 split to run lines where they need or want them. [NOTE: In the 2003 bond documents St. Leon ran 42,000 feet of line (more than 7 miles)]

Mario Todd: Did they identify areas to serve in the study?

John Watson: The TIF districts – in West Harrison and in St. Leon area by the interstate.

Frank Leone: Jim West wanted shovel ready sites so they needed sewer available to certify that it was shovel ready.

John Watson continued: There has been a draft interlocal agreement on the table with DCRSD for 9 months. DCRSD has some of their own issues and we can’t speak to that. DCRSD does support our plans and issued a letter that was to be delivered to Mayor Cunningham today. Watson gave them a copy of that letter that Frank Kramer wrote.

Mayor Cunningham: We are not in the sewer business. We could possibly finance this- you’d have to check with Tom Steidel (City Manager) for a loan. We have low interest loans.

John Watson: Mr. Steidel told us we should come to this board.

Mayor Cunningham: We wouldn’t make a decision tonight. We will try to do what we can for business and the local economy. I work with a Republican governor and I’m a Democrat Mayor. The governor wants jobs in the state. If everyone in the area would like to see this- we’ll do it. If there is opposition- well- we have enough problems in Lawrenceburg…

Tom Steidel: We continue to have costs on the by-pass after spending more than $1 million and we were dumped last year on that.

Mayor Cunningham: We need to listen to the people of St. Leon and the people here in the audience. We need a presentation agreeable to both parties.

John Watson: DCRSD is supportive; Council voted 4-3 to not fund DCRSD on this. I don’t know what the Commissioners think.

Mayor Cunningham: We want a deal that serves BOTH sides. We have no problem with a deal that guarantees a return of income to us. The northern part of the county – well the county has 50,000 people and it’s mostly Republican. I’m a Democrat. If you are seeing users then you will have a way to pay it off. We want a plan agreeable to everyone in the county. [NOTE: St. Leon ran lines and depended on forced hook-ups to pay it off. This proposal sounds like they are building ahead of their need again. With their policy of forced hook-ups, and with county residents having NO SAY in selecting people who determine where the lines go, this will be just more of the same problems we are currently seeing in that district. The increased capacity is not for industry alone- it is also for residential development requests.]

Ralph Thompson, Commissioner D-3: Council voted against $2.4 million for DCRSD to expand with St. Leon and Council voted 4-3 against DCRSD coming to you (L-bg) to ask for money. Council did approve some money to work out past Aurora. Council, Commissioners, and Commissioner’s attorney are on record as being against forced hook-ups. If the money is approved, we want it dedicated for TIF districts and not for additional Residential.

Mayor Cunningham: We are not going to give our money away. We have done 12-15 plans for assistance in sewers in the past.

Thom Hammond: I’m from Logan Township.

Jackie Stutz: Are you an attorney?

Thom Hammond: No. I have a respectable job. [Laughter]

A number of my neighbors are being sued to force hook-ups. We have no representation in St. Leon. We cannot vote there but we are subject to their ordinances. Connection fees are very high now- (over 10 times what the original fees were.) we need to mend and heal- we need to get the lawsuits dropped. I addition- I don’t think your loan can be guaranteed. The only way they can be paid is through other users. People want sewers in subdivisions, etc. We want the same deal the president of the sewer board gets (cost-wise.)

Mayor Cunningham: Your issues are with your officials and not the city of Lawrenceburg. Our loans are about 3% interest.

Tom Steidel: You would have the opportunity to review the agreement before it is put into place.

Thom Hammond: We could have others here give you their personal stories…

Cliff Eibeck: St. Leon wouldn’t listen to us even if we had the Good Lord standing behind us! Dorothy White owns the property adjoining the sewer plant and plans show a new pipe to run through her to Logan Creek. (Watson said he didn’t know about that) Eibeck went on to say that Mike Hall the surveyor was to call him to let him know about that problem.

Mayor Cunningham: stated again- that loans were available but they don’t want a problem. Bring a plan agreeable to both sides.

Discussion ended at 7:30 PM (45 minutes)

So, Mr. Watson, if you had not "FORCED" all those folks, on working septic systems, onto your sewers, you would not need more capacity today?

Is this why Maxwell is refusing to hook on?

To provide you more capacity?

OK- now how would you all want to solve the fact that the county needs a sewer provider in the northern end? SDRSD can't do it all.
St. Leon needs to be brought into teh fold and told how we want them to handle business in the county land area.
What they do in their own town limits is their business- but they need direction as to what the county expects.
And then the county needs to cooperate (not take over) with the two main providers in the county.

The Stamp Act imposed on the colonies by Great Britain was used to support the refrain of "no taxation without representation" even though not a single penney was ever collected pursuant to it...and this helped to foster a revolution! This puts St. Leon's forced hookups into an historical perspective that makes one wonder why their heinous actions are not even more vocally attacked by even those who are not directly and immediately affected by it.

Vlad Dracula, Jr. said...

Mr Bob Ewbank gave Tom Hammond a warning to be careful on what he said because anything he said could be held against him.)

Well well well it's getting serious down there at those commish meetings. We can't have accusations of moral turpitude, or sland, questions of conflicts of interest or maybe anything that is adverse to THE POWERS THAT BE.

Now Mr. Ewbank, Esq. read or quoted just the first of the 4 Miranda rights to that Thom Hammond who was apparently pleading his case too vigorously.

To avoid this unpleasantness in the future I would recommend that immediately after the pledge of Allegance at a Commish meeting the police officer read to all present the four Miranda Right which are printed here for everyone's edification in the event that some one might say or do somthing very naughty at a Commish meeting.

THE MIRANDA RIGHTS:

1. You have the right to remain silent.

2. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

3. You have the right to an attorney.

4.If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you.

So pay attention everybody!
