Motion made by Crawford, seconded by Wessels to approve the deputy clerk job description as written.

Ayes-All. Motion carried.


Discussion was had on the Sanitary Sewer Project Phase I regarding the change order # 9 which had a decrease in the amount of $44,045.00 for 115 feet of piping that was not done. Sharon from Municipal Pipe reported during mediation that she bid on line item units and not on the plan drawings so she is reporting she never bid on that particular footage to begin with. The mayor had reported that the City has currently spent roughly $6,000 on legal fees and if we choose to go to court, we could spend upwards of $75,000. During mediation, Municipal Pipe agreed to settle with payment of $31,272.50, which according to Mayor Daggs was splitting the difference. Wessels is not satisfied with the flow meter situation. Crawford also voiced concerns with what happens after final payment is made and we have problems with the flow meter again. Motion made by Wessels, seconded by Abbas to pay Municipal Pipe $31,272.50 with the requirement that installation of the flow meter be done and working properly. Ayes-All.

Motion carried.


Motion by Abbas, seconded by Wessels to adjourn at 7:35 p.m. Ayes-All. Motion carried.
