c.  RESOLUTION 2016-28 Water/Sewer Rate Increase

Debra advised calculations for the actual revenue from wastewater were completed and equated to a 5.5% increase. Which will give the town the increase in revenue to stay on target for the 20-year capital improvement plan. The calculation also contained an increase in water rates of 8% for the base and each level of usage as well. Attached was a letter that will go out to each resident to inform of the increase and establish the new sewer rate for each household for the next 12 months. Trustee Beach suggested including a sample of the breakdown in the letter, Debra recommended this not be added to avoid confusion. Motion was made by Trustee Gfeller seconded by Trustee Tyler to adopt RESOLUTION 2016-28 establishing water and sewer rates. The motion carried 6-0; Mayor Kipp, Trustees Wafel, Beach, Johns, Gfeller and Tyler voting yes.

d. Overweight Vehicles

Debra shared there were some complaints about semi-trailers driving in the area of North 1st. She contacted Mr. Tweedy and was advised that new testing regulations have been federally mandated to have two through stop signs incorporated into their testing route. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Department approved the route that includes North 1st which in turn conflicts with the Keenesburg Municipal Code Section 8-3-20 which limits the weight of vehicles that drive on the streets to 8,000 gross pounds. Debra pointed out an oversight on Ordinance 2013-01 which revised vehicle weight limits and established standards for issuing annual or single trip permits for operation of weight limit of 80,000 gross pounds. She noted this ordinance only called out Woodward, CR 59 and 398 not North 1st which would result in an amendment to the code. Mayor Kipp stated he does not want to add North 1st to the tuck route and suggested a new permit process be implemented for this street with a lower weight limit of 28,000- 30,000 gross pounds. Trustee Beach asked if there was a fee associated with the permit process, Debra shared it is an annual permit fee of $200.00 or $25.00 for a single trip per truck and noted she did not mention these fees to Mr. Tweedy. Mayor Kipp directed staff to check with the Engineer to verify the structural capacity of the road to see if it is adequate for 28,000- 30,000 gross pounds and then start a new permitting process.  

 

  1. Open Gym Opportunity

Debra shared Hudson Council member Maria Chavez extended an open gym opportunity to Hoff Elementary in addition to the open gym held at Hudson Academy of Arts and Science. She shared approval was pending from the school district for access to the gymnasium. She noted this is a volunteer ran event. Trustee Beach expressed interest and asked that her information be passed on to Maria.

 

  1. Schedule Joint Workshop Session with Planning Commission

Debra shared it was time to schedule a joint workshop session with the Planning Commission to discuss future plans, the Planning Commission proposed the following dates: Monday, June 6, 2016 or Monday, June 27, 2016. The board agreed Monday, June 6, 2016 worked best. Mayor Kipp scheduled a Joint Workshop Session with the Planning Commission for Monday, June 6, 2016 at 6 p.m.
