Old Business –
PPSSD – Some electrical work needs to be done at VPL. Supervisors T. Tomczak and L. Kec will contact Lee Herseth to do the work.
Community Sewer Project – Soil testing has been done but so far not one of the properties have been determined to be useful.
SEH memo from Bob Stark Project Engineer.
Project Schedule: SEH sent out 130 questionnaires. Approximately 65 of the surveys were returned as of this meeting.
Bob Whitmyer of Matrix Soils & Systems visited one of the potential wastewater treatment plant sites. He determined that the site he examined did not have enough suitable area for the size of the treatment plant that was planned. SEH will look at options, including flow equalization to see if the site footprint can be reduced. Mr. Whitmyer will also be looking at an alternative site next week.
The next step, SEH will tabulate the survey data that has been returned and present that data to the board at the November meeting. SEH will be contacting the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to initiate their determination of effluent limits after a sufficient number of forms are returned and a reliable estimate of the anticipated flow can be made.
Roads – Nothing
Community Center – Nothing
Other – The county has not reported any decision as to installing a snowmobile crossing sign here at Kabetogama at this time.

The work that Clerk M. Manninen and John Stegmeir have been doing with FEMA has been going very well. Gentry Salter, FEMA has been very helpful, and this process should not take long at all. Our next meeting will be held here at the Town Hall on October 17th, 9 am.
