Mr. Wozniak joined the meeting via Phone call.
Trustee Lahey would like to see an all inclusive statement for Phase 1A and 1B.
Trustee Forhan was concerned about additional cost if a third meeting is needed. He feels that no additional cost should be incurred. Mr. Wozniak stated the wording can be changed to reflect that. A cost schedule was requested for the types of meetings to determine what type of meeting the Boards needs.
Trustee Weisenburger suggested a “Time Line” on getting designs, etc. be developed to use as a “roadmap,” to be posted to the website, for the community to follow.
Motion by Lahey and second by Clemons to accept phase 1B. Approved 8 – 1.
Regarding Grants, Trustee Wantage reminded the assembly that a grant does not have to be accepted when offered. With the US Army Corps of Engineers, the first $100,000.00 does not require matching funds. This grant is “open” and necessary information to apply should be available at Phase 2. Submittal Review Call is the application. Kimley-Horn will do the due diligence for this grant.
Currently, an appointment is being planned with Representative Bean to obtain Federal appropriation for funding.
Motion by Wantage and second by Scally to proceed with the USACE grant application through Kimley-Horn. Approved 9-0.
