SPECIAL EMERGENCY CITY COUNCIL MEETING TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2016 6:30P.M.
Mayor Delton Thorson called the special city council meeting to order at 6:30p.m. Present were council members Tom Crowe, Lynette Richards, Mike Canaday and Ken Hicks. Also present were Kim Krueger, and Cynthia Anderegg. Absent: Jason TePaske

CONSIDER REQUEST OF COUNCIL MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE BY PHONE
Request to allow Council member Tom Crowe to participate in Special Emergency Council meeting by phone was granted.

APPROVAL OF AGENDA Motion by Richards seconded by Canaday to approve the agenda. Motion carried.

DISCUSS AND CONSIDER CONTRACTING FOR EMERGENCY SEWER UTILITY LINE REPAIR Public Works Super-Intendant, Kim Krueger, informed the council of the sewer line collapse on South Spring Street between Clofax and Grant Streets. The ground water levels are exceedingly high and have surrounded the sewer pipe which is approximately 11 feet deep. This has caused the sewer pipe to collapse and allow soil, sand and water to pour into the pipe which created an 8 foot deep hole above the pipe. The pipe is still functioning and residents continue to have service.

Krueger received 1 bid so far, for $50,000 for the repairs. The repairs would include replacing manhole and laying 280 feet of pipe. The amount may change if the line needs to be de-watered. The bid does not include paving the street, but does include base course to prepare for paving.

Motion by Richards seconded by Hicks to authorize sewer line repairs up to $65,000 for the collapsed sewer on South Spring Street. The money may be borrowed from the water fund for this emergency repair. Roll call vote: Ward 1, yes; Ward 2, yes; Ward 3, absent; Ward 4, yes; Ward 5, yes. Motion carried.

ADJOURNMENT
Motion by Hicks seconded by Canaday to adjourn the meeting. Meeting adjourned.

Cynthia Anderegg, City Clerk
