OPEN PORTION

Ricky Christian

510 SOM Center Road

I am still having a drainage problem.  I have talked to Doug and Tom and they assure me that it is going to be taken care of, but I just wanted to let you know I am still having a problem.  So, I hope they do take care of it.

Council President Buckholtz asked, do we know where that is coming from?

Mr. Metzung replied, we were out today. We went out last week and met with the contractors. The last time we met they came out and have reset grade stakes to do their grading and we met with them again today and we were informed that they are scheduled to be out on Wednesday to do some more grading along that side.

Mr. Cappello stated, we will be there while they are doing that and will make any adjustments that are needed as part of it.

Mayor Rinker asked, can I ask you to describe so we understand where the drainage issue is so that we are all on the same page?

Mr. Cappello replied, it’s along the north property line of Mr. Christian’s property to the south of the property.

Mayor Rinker asked, are we talking the entire boundary?

Mr. Cappello replied, the water problem by Mr. Christian’s lot is a north/south pocket of water by a mound of earth that drains to the north. When the swale is put in, that water should be alleviated.

Mayor Rinker asked, where is that located relative to the house?

Mr. Cappello replied, it’s actually near the rear of the property, almost at the back.

Mr. Christian replied, it’s actually, there’s a pipe buried between my property and the Library property.

Mayor Rinker asked, where?

Mr. Christian replied, along the boundaries.

Mayor Rinker stated, but the boundary is a large, I am trying to pinpoint it.  My understanding is it was in at the northwest corner.

Mr. Christian replied, Costanzo put it in.  It ran from his old building all the way to the front of the road.  It was crushed when the road went in.  It has never been repaired.  Every time I bring it up, it’s wait till the project’s over. We will resolve the issue.  It’s never been resolved.  I spent $30,000 resolving the issue of my own money to have the house dug up to find out if my pipes were crushed when the road went in.  This pipe is crushed also.  It doesn’t drain anymore.  When the road went in, we had pictures and gave them to Doug and everybody else of geysers coming up out of this pipe.  I mean, water shooting up this high because it had nowhere to go.

Mayor Rinker asked, what is the problem today?

Mr. Christian replied, the problem today is that the pipe is still crushed and there’s nowhere for that water to go.  The swale has to be cut deep enough.  In order to do that, they are going to have to cut in to tree roots because this has been there for 15 years.

Mayor Rinker asked, is it the understanding that if the swale is done right, it should function?

Mr. Metzung replied, correct.

Mayor Rinker asked, and the way they reshot the grades from an engineering standpoint, it should be done right and that’s to be done this week before it opens up?

Mr. Cappello replied, yes.

Mr. Christian continued, another issue I had was when they came to do the grading in the back, they pulled my property pins.  They are not there anymore.

Mr. Cappello replied, yes, we did notice that.  So we are going to take care of that.

Mayor Rinker asked, so they will be replaced?

Mr. Metzung replied, I believe that there is a stake there now that I believe probably is his property stake.  It’s a wooden stake.

Mr. Cappello replied, we need to get that resolved.  That has to be replaced back.

Mayor Rinker stated, well I think on record, so he knows, you and the property owner make sure that’s confirmed.

Mr. Christian replied, thank you.

Council President Buckholtz stated, we will be reconvening in May for our Caucus, so don’t hesitate to stop back.

Council President Buckholtz asked if there were any further comments. There were none.

We are pretty much on schedule.  I am real pleased with the way things are going right now.

ANY OTHER MATTERS:

Council President Buckholtz asked if there were any other matters. 

Mr. Rick Christian asked if he could raise one more question.  The ordinance about garbage cans, that you can’t see garbage cans from the street.  Did something happen with that?

Council President Buckholtz asked, something in terms of what?

Mr. Christian asked, was it revoked or rescinded?  The Library’s garbage cans can be seen from the street. There are two of them that face my house. There’s no gate on the bin that they put these things in.  I think the Library should have to put some kind of gate across their garbage bin so that I don’t have to look at two big green garbage disposal units sitting in my backyard.

Mrs. Mills thinks commercially there is an ordinance. We thought you were talking residential.

Mr. Christian stated, if I can’t have my garbage cans sitting in my front yard, the Library should not be able to have their garbage cans out either.

Mayor Rinker stated, we will follow up with the Building Commissioner.

ADJOURNMENT

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to adjourn the meeting.
