Exeter Village board met on Tuesday, November 5 with board member Mitchell Schlegelmilch absent.
They quickly approved the minutes and invoices and noted there are a just a few more payments on the tag factory removal loan (the loan for $170,000 was taken in July of 2016 with a 10 year note).
The fiscal year revenue and expense report was reviewed and the board had the opportunity to ask questions about it before Clerk Becky Erdkamp forwards the report to the auditors.
The board reviewed the quote from the pool leak investigators. The quote, for $3820 will include cutting out the joint filler and replacing this where they suspect the leak is occurring. Maintenance Supervisor John Mueller did not have a timeline for the repair.
Chairman Alan Michl commented, “I don’t know if they will be able to tell why it leaked.”
Before approving the bid for the repair several board members commented on the high water table this year possibly contributing to the issue.
Mueller gave a short maintenance report including the location of several small concrete repairs in town. Michl added that concrete safe salt has been ordered and will be available to downtown businesses for sidewalks.
Mueller asked if the board wanted to use salt downtown and Michl advised to “Sand the intersections like we have in the past.”
Mueller reported he picked up a load of new culverts to be installed around town. He also noted he had been asked if the village will be placing an additional streetlight on E. Cheyenne where a new house has been built and the street now connects with Lincoln Avenue.
The board requested Mueller get a quote from Perennial to put a pole and a light at the end of the block.
Clerk Becky Erdkamp reported that sales tax for August was $12,426.41 and Keno for September was $506.80. Erdkamp has also been working with the keno company on the paperwork for paying a $25,000 winner who has remained anonymous.
The board set the next meeting for Wednesday, December 4.
