The new squad for the Police Department is currently being equipped and should be up and running fully in the next week or two.  Things were delayed because of the COVID pandemic.  The SCADA system upgrade for the Water/Wastewater Department is near completion.  The final order for the electric rate increase has been completed.  Staff is currently putting a plan together to present changing the billing cycle for utilities.  The State has put a grant together for local municipalities to recoup some of the unbudgeted costs due to COVID-19.  Administrator Frion will be putting those costs together to request reimbursement.

Mayor Koehler presented previous Mayor Steinmetz a plaque recognizing him for his years of service with the City of Bloomer as both an alderman and mayor.

Motion by Meinen to authorize the owner at 1511 6th Avenue to cut down the boulevard tree next to his driveway at the owner’s expense.  Bauch seconded the motion.   Baribeau and Reischel voted nay.  Motion failed with Mayor Koehler breaking the tie with a nay vote.

Water/Wastewater Manager, Bill Miller, gave an update on a private lead service line replacement program that is being offered by the Wisconsin DNR.  The City needs to replace 18 lead service lines by the end of 2020 as required by the DNR.  This program assists in funding the replacement, but the City would have to bid the project out to have both the public side and the private side of the lines replaced.  It is recommended that an ordinance also be created to address replacement of any other private lines that may come to light in the future that the City is unaware of.

Motion by Meinen to allow staff to move forward with the engineering of the project to complete both the private and public side of replacement to qualify for the WI DNR aid and direct Attorney Gierhart to draft an ordinance reflecting private lead line replacement.  Baribeau seconded the motion.  Motion carried.
