APPROVAL OF MINUTES
1. Approval of the Public Facilities Committee Meeting Minutes dated December 8, 2014
Motion for approval made by Trustee Guethle and seconded by Trustee Carroll. All in favor. Motion approved.
1. Discussion on Approval of Professional Services from Layne Christensen Company for Well No. 7
Water Superintendent Paul Young stated that Well #7 was drilled in 2005. In 2007, the Village entered into a contract with Layne Christensen to develop the well and install a pump and motor. It has been running successfully for 8 years and it is now time to pull it to do pump maintenance and motor check. The professional service agreement does not bind the Village to use Layne Christensen but they do fit all of the criteria in the professional services purchasing policy. With the professional service agreement, the Village experiences a 5% reduction on all labor and equipment and a 10% reduction on the special services they perform such as televising a well.
Young noted that the Village budgeted $110,000 for pump maintenance.
Guethle asked about the location of well 7. Young said it is located on Hickory, north of Butterfield (Rte 56).
Bosco noted that there are five active wells. Wells 1 and 2 are deactivated.
The Committee was in favor of moving forward with Layne Christensen. To be placed on New Business for the next Board meeting.
