The purpose of the meeting was to have discussion regarding improvements to the City of Winsted’s Waste Water Treatment Facility (WWTF).

Guggemos reviewed the bids to prepare the Waste Water Treatment Facility (WWTF) site for future construction and installation of the proposed sludge storage tanks.

Preparation of the site in fall, 2005 would allow the City of Winsted to obtain lower bids for the spring, 2006 construction and installation of the proposed sludge storage tanks. It would also help the project to proceed more rapidly.

Anderson presented a proposal from American Engineering Testing, Inc. to do four soil borings on the existing dike to prepare the WWTF site for spring, 2006 construction and installation of the proposed sludge storage tanks.

Boldt motioned to authorize American Engineering Testing, Inc. to perform drilling and laboratory services on the existing dike at a cost not to exceed $5,592. Wiemiller seconded. Motion carried 4-0.

Guggemos presented the quote from Fergus Power Pump to haul the sludge to prepare the WWTF site for spring, 2006 construction and installation of the proposed sludge storage tanks.

Boldt motioned to accept the bid of $24,100 from Fergus Power Pump to haul sludge at the WWTF. Ollig seconded. Motion carried 4-0.

Wiemiller motioned to adjourn. Quast seconded. Motion carried 4-0.

Respectfully submitted,
