Mr. Sedlacek had a question about the billing on new construction. He has received bills for the new construction on Captains Drive and thinks he is being billed the base fee, even though the water and sewer have not been connected yet. Ms. Lankster checked his account and the only amount to be billed was the prepaid connection fees and the $37.00 easement fee. A bill is mailed every month after the initial setup even if no amount is due. The base charge of $40.80 does not get set up to be billed until the connections are complete.
The renewal from Dimond Bros. Insurance for Commercial Property and Workers’ Compensation Insurance was presented for approval for the renewal period of March 17, 2019 through March 16, 2020. The Commercial Property insurance rate increased slightly, by about $300.00. The Workers’ Compensation increased about $800.00, due to increases in payroll as well as adjustments to figures from previous years. There was some interest shown for other bids to be submitted, but at the time of the meeting nothing had been received. Mr. Hayes made a motion to approve the renewal from Dimond Bros. Insurance for Commercial Property and Workers’ Compensation. Mr. Murphy seconded the motion and all Trustees voted “Aye.”
A claim has been submitted to Dimond Bros. Insurance for a sewer backup at 1993 Treasure Drive. They returned home after being gone about two weeks and the basement was flooded, even though no water had been used. It appears to have been one of the check valves that failed that the District will repair.
Mr. Hayes made a motion to adjourn the regular meeting. Mr. Murphy seconded the motion, and all Trustees voted “Aye”.
Respectfully submitted, Carla Lankster, District Clerk
