The Delmar City Council met in regular session at 7:00 p.m. at the Delmar Council Chambers located at 613 Main Street. Mayor Johnson called the meeting to order with the following members present at roll call: Jebsen, Trenkamp, Goodall, Eberhart, Simmons.

M/S Jebsen, Goodall to approve the consent agenda. Roll call vote: All ayes.

Sheriffs Dept. report was given with 53.28 hours being spent within the city during the month of December 2006. Crime Stopper nothing new to report at this time with the exception of still trying to get the word out about Crime Stoppers. Landfill report by Goodall stating that the bio reactor is repaired and working again.

Nothing to report at this time on the Water Project by MSA Professional Services. The Clerk was instructed to contact Ron Thomas from Thomas Controls to discuss the heat tape at the tower.

Discussion on the issue of sump pumps and the levels of the lagoons due to a large amount of grey water going into the system. DNR allows only 2 discharges per year from the lagoons per Darrell Warren, certified operator for the city. Warren noted that the source of the grey water going into the sewer system must be found and taken care of per DNR when our inspection was done this fall. There are several areas where the grey water could be getting into the system from. One is from household sump pumps being hooked to the sewer system of which is illegal and the other could possibly be from damaged sewer mains. Council instructed the Clerk to draft a letter to residents regarding sump pumps that will be sent out this month. This will be the first step in locating where the grey water is originating from.

M/S Goodall, Simmons to approve paying off the Skid Steer Loan at The National Bank with an approximate payoff of $1960.00. Roll call vote: All ayes.

Discussion on early payoff of the Sewer GO Bond. Clerk was instructed to list all the Sewer CD’s, type of CD and the maturity date of the CD. Clerk will present report to the council at the next meeting.

M/S Goodall, Eberhart to adjourn at 8:10 p.m. Roll call vote: All ayes.
