Correspondence- State Revolving Fund loan interest will be lowered from 3% to 1.75% for the sewer loan.  Clerk will contact bonding attorney for necessary paperwork.  Received $22,877.00 from Rohwedder Trust.

Brad Robins of Utility Service gave a presentation on the condition of the water tower.  Inside of tank needs 3 coats of epoxy at a cost of around $44,000.  There is lead paint on the outside of the tank, no lead on inside, there are gaps at the roof, spider rods need replaced and  recommend 12” vent and second entry.  Containment is costly, almost cheaper to build new but DNR will want a larger tank.  Engineer would be needed.  Total project for current tower with lead abatement is $240,000, includes inside work, vent upsized, gap fixed and second hatch.  Maintenance program was presented also.  Not eligible with tank in current state.  Can paint inside, can paint outside but no guarantee until fixed.

Project would take probably 4 -6 weeks.  Can spread over 3 yrs, may go 5 or 6 years. Maintenance fee around $8,000 after first year includes cost of painting when needed.  $87,585 and year four would be $8,788.
