Meeting: Birdseye CouncilDecember 7, 2018
The Birdseye Town Council met Thursday and:
• Heard from Utility Superintendent Bob Morrow that Midco Diving & Marine Services, Rapid City, South Dakota, conducted a dive inspection of the water tower at Oak and Maple streets Nov. 24. The cost, including some repairs that were made, was $3,099. The inspection is required every three to five years.
• Learned a recent state sewer system inspection confirmed Birdseye must keep working to address inflow and infiltration problems. The town is permitted to pump 80,000 gallons of waste water per day to the sewage lagoons south of town. In the summer, the town sends 31,000 to 35,000 gallons a day, Morrow said. After a 1-inch rain, because of infiltration, the total going to the lagoons is 149,000 gallons to 169,000 gallons.
• Heard from Birdseye Park Board President Janet Partenheimer that a successful summer picnic means a walking trail will be finished in the spring and an extended shelter house will get a roof.
• Approved hold-the-line monthly salaries in 2019 that keep the utility superintendent position at $2,000, the water utility clerk at $850, the town marshal at $1,375, the clerk-treasurer at $1,960 and council members at $150.
• Scheduled an executive session to interview four candidates for part-time utility superintendent to replace the retiring Morrow. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Town Hall, 103 W. State Road 64.
