NOTICE Cadott Village Special Board Minutes Sept. 30, 2019 President Anson Albarado called the special board meeting to order. Trustees present were: Bart Chapek, Russ Falkenberg, Merlin Huhn, Randy Kuehni and Terry Licht. Absent: Les Liptak. Public present: Len Schreiber (Cedar Corp.), Seth Hudson (Cedar Corp.), Rolly Tichy (DPW) and Julia Wolf (reporter). The next regular board meeting will be Oct. 7, 2019, at 6:30 p.m.

Schreiber reviewed the bid tabulation on the watermain project on County Highway X (Chippewa St.). There were two different options to bid on. Contract A is the open cut option and Contract B is the trenchless option. The difference between the two options is $8,808.55. The bids ranged from a low of $338,129.20, to a high of $418,400, a difference of $80,270.80, on the open cut (Contract A). The low bid was received from Haas Sons, Inc. The bids ranged from a low of $329,320.65, to a high of $382,440, a difference of $53,119.35, on trenchless (Contract B). The low bid was received from McCabe Construction. Cedar Corp. has worked with both Haas Sons and McCabe Construction in the past, and stated they are both reputable contractors. It depends which way the village would like to go. The village does still need the signed developer’s agreement with Chilson’s and also an easement signed from Wingers before we move ahead. If for some reason the project gets dropped, then the property owners will be assessed the cost of the watermain. A motion was made by Licht to go with the trenchless (boring) Contract B with McCabe Construction, contingent on those signed agreements with Chilson and Winger. It was seconded by Kuehni. MC.

Schreiber presented Pay Request #3, on the Poplar St. CDBG project, in the amount of $166,870.16. He recommends paying it. The very last pay request will be next year after the second lift is put on the street. They will be sure there are not any problems before they sign off. A motion was made by Chapek and seconded by Licht, to approve the pay request for that amount. MC.

President Albarado stated that because Wingers didn’t agree with that Memorandum of Understanding, that we need to officially rescind it. A motion was made by Kuehni and seconded by Huhn, to rescind the Memorandum of Understanding between the Village of Cadott, and the Daniel M. and Jean M. Winger Trust. The clerk will send a letter to the Wingers. MC.

A motion was made by Licht and seconded by Huhn, to adjourn into closed session: per state statute 19.85 (1) (e), deliberating or negotiating the purchasing of public properties, the investing of public funds or conducting other specified public business, whenever competitive or bargaining reasons require a closed session (conducting public business). MC.
