Williamsburg City Council Meeting Minutes

Mayor Sandersfeld called the meeting to order at 6:03 p.m. noted council members Grier, McMann, Marshall, Zalenski and Tornholm were present. Also, present was Public Works Director Brian Portwood and City Clerk Nicole Osweiler.

Marshall made a motion to approve the agenda, McMann seconded the motion. Motion passed with a unanimous vote.

Motion was made by Marshall to approve Resolution 08-19: A resolution hiring Eli Welsh as a seasonal winter and summer employee in the public works department at the rate of $10 per hour, McMann seconded the motion. A roll call vote was taken: “ayes”- Zalenski, Grier, Tornholm, Marshall and McMann; and “nays”- none. Motion passed with a unanimous vote.

Tornholm and Marshall went over the proposed utility rate increases and how they should help each fund sustain itself. By doing smaller increases each year, this should help offset the increase that will be needed for each of the upcoming water and sewer projects.

Osweiler went over the revenues for the roads, water and waste water funds. The road use tax fund will increase slightly based on the valuations provided. The water fund and waste water funds will also increase due to the proposed rate increases. Portwood went over the expenses for the park department which included: replacing one piece of playground equipment, adding one full-time employee and two more seasonal employees for maintenance with grounds. The roads expenses include: a temporary salt/sand building, overlays to streets, concrete patching, crack sealing, brine system, Ventrac dozer blade and dust control. Expenses for the water fund include: well 7 generator hook-ups, half GIS fees and new water meters/system (this will be expensed out for five years). Waste water fund expenses are: roofing brick building, half GIS fees, generator/lift station maintenance and new scale for testing. The Boyd fund will be used to pay for four fifths of the new water meters/system. A resolution will be approved prior to the purchase of the meters/system with payment details stated for repaying the Boyd fund over the next four years (FY21-FY24). All of these funds will be reviewed once all the numbers have been entered; adjustments may be made at a later date pending fund balance.

Motion was made by McMann, seconded by Tornholm to adjourn the meeting at 8:45 p.m. Motion passed with a unanimous vote. The council will meet next for the fire and library budget meeting January 21, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in city hall.
