Mr. Mackie disagreed and stated that he would put rock on the bank with his own money. Tom Cappello explained that he has to be careful making changes; some changes will have to be approved.

Tom Cappello and Doug Metzung advised Mr. Mackie to wait until the decision regarding N.E.O.R.S.D. is determined before doing anything. He agreed to wait.

The committee agreed to take Mr. Mackie’s request off the agenda at this time.

Mr. & Mrs. Batcheller 6784 Wilson Mills

Tom Cappello, Village Engineer, surveyed the property and said there is a low spot on the property. He needs some additional surveying work and a topo before he is able to make a recommendation and provide a drawing. Mr. Batcheller’s neighbor to the east would have to be contacted because the work would involve going on his property.

Mr. Batcheller asked what it would look like so he can talk to his neighbor? Tom Cappello said everything will be underground.

Joe Saponaro, Council Representative, said to let Tom Cappello know when you have talked to your neighbor.

Tom will do further work to provide a recommendation.

The process will take several weeks to complete.

Mr. Setlock 6818 Bonnieview

Mrs. Setlock explained that they did contact an attorney, as suggested, but was told it would be best to talk to the homeowner’s association. She has left three messages and no one has contacted her. They asked if they can go back to the original proposal?  Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained that it will need to be up-dated but the same work could be done.

Mrs. Setlock asked if there was anything they could do to have the neighbor contribute to the cost? They felt that the addition the neighbor put on his house raised his property with the added dirt  which caused water to flow into their in the yard.

Joe Saponaro, Council Representative, asked if we could ask the building department when the addition was built and if all the paperwork was completed and approved?  Tom Cappello, Village Engineer, said he wasn’t sure you could go back on a neighbor but the original addition can be looked into.

Tom asked the Setlocks if the water problem has gotten better since the retention basin was capped? They said it has gotten better. Mrs. Setlock asked if Tom could review the original proposal since it has been awhile. Tom Cappello explained the changes to them..Steve Jerome, Council Representative, said to go ahead and get an up-dated proposal for the Setlock’s.

Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained that they were going to contact an engineer they had hired previously and get back to us. We haven’t heard anything as of today.

Joe Saponaro, Council Representative asked if this is a D&I concern? Doug Metzung felt it was more structural. Joe Saponaro suggested it be taken off the D&I Agenda. If need be, it can be put back on in the future.

Mr. Christian  510 SOM Ctr. Rd.

Joe Saponaro, Council Representative, asked Mr. Christian to explain his circumstances since he had not completed the application yet.
