Attorney Stein stated that Administrative Law Judge had ruled that the vote for the collective bargaining group will only be for our patrol officers. Attorney Stein stated that the City has the right to appeal the decision, but it his opinion that the City would not prevail in an appeal. A discussion between the Council and Attorney Stein took place on the process that will take place for the union vote and process that will take place in the future if the City has to collectively bargain with the patrol officers. A discussion between the Council and Attorney Stein took place regarding how having union and non-union employees would affect the current personnel policy that is in place. Administrator Peters stated that as a part of his hiring process he was informed that the Council wished for the personnel policy to be updated and that he and the Deputy Clerk had been reviewing the current policy and drafting an update. A discussion took place between the Council members on what steps needed to be taken now that the PERB judge has made a decision. Attorney Stein stated that if the City does not want to appeal no action needs to be formally taken because the decision will become final unless the City files an appeal. Informational only, no action taken.

Neil Guess from Bolton & Menk presented the project design for the 230th Ave Water Main Loop. This will give us a redundant water supply for the area south of Lower Gar. The next step is to get IDNR and County permits which will take 4-6 weeks. This project will only take about a week to lay the pipe. The cost estimate is $200,000. Guess noted that with an open, flexible schedule for the project, he would suspect that the bids would come in under that. No action was taken.

Staff presented a look at what the 2018 water budget and cash flow might look like with changes in the consecutive systems contracts along with a look at water rates. It was noted that for a financially healthy utility and to avoid double digit increases, rates should at least change annually by the rate of inflation. The Board asked to staff to look at rates in the surrounding communities and the past fifteen-year history of MMU rates. No action was taken.

Nelson/Anderson made a motion to approve 2017 accounts receivable write-offs of $12,387. Staff noted that this is the highest it has been in recent history. Motion passed unanimously.

Items discussed in the Manager’s Report:

• Staff presented information on the ATRR income that is being received as a result of entering SPP. This is helping to offset the additional costs relating to Neal #4 not running.

• Staff presented an estimate of the effect on revenue that the closing of production at Polaris in Milford will have.

• There is growing pressure to chemically treat the lakes for Curly Leaf Pondweed. The Board expressed concerns about this and the impact on quality drinking water and what options are available to handle the issues with chemicals.

• Manager reported that the Midwest Electric Consumers Association has asked that elected representatives be contacted regarding opposition to President Trump’s proposed sale of WAPA because this low-cost source of power is important to small municipal towns in Iowa.

The Board of Trustees adjourned the meeting. The next regular meeting of the Milford Municipal Utilities Board of Trustees will be July 10, 2017.

Quality Water Report

City of Arnolds Park

We’re pleased to present to you this year’s Annual Quality Water Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. We are pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets federal and state requirements.

If you have any questions about this report, or concerning your water utility, please contact Tony Gray at 332-5000. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Central Water Systems located at 3300 Lakeshore Drive, Okoboji, IA 51355 at 4:30 P.M. Central Water Systems obtains it’s water from West Lake Okoboji. West Lake Okoboji was determined to be highly susceptible to contamination because it is a surface water supply. The West Lake Okoboji water source will be most susceptible to activities such as underground storage tanks, landfills, hazardous waste sites, permitted National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System sites, and land use patterns (urban & agricultural). The H.R. Green Company has completed a detailed evaluation of our source water supply. It is available at the main office of Central Water System.

The following table shows the result of our monitoring for the period of January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. All drinking water, including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. It’s important to remember that presence of these contaminants does not necessarily pose a health risk.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Central Water System is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in home plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using the water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

In this table, you will find many terms and abbreviations you may not be familiar with. To help you better understand these terms, we’ve provided the following definitions:

Parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/l)-one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years, or a single penny in $10,000.

Parts per billion (ppb) or micrograms per liter-one part per billion corresponds to one minute in two years or a single penny in $10,000,000.

Picocuries per liter (pCi/L)-picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water.

Millirems per year (mrem/yr)-measure of radiation absorbed by the body.

Nephelometric Turbidity unit (NTU)-nephelometric turbidity unit is a measure of the clarity of water. Turbidity in excess of 5 NTU is just noticeable by sight to the average person.

Treatment Technique (TT)-a treatment technique is a required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.

Maximum Contaminant Level (mandatory language)-the maximum allowed (MCL) is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG)-the “goal” is the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

We’re proud that your drinking water meets or exceeds 911 Federal and State requirements. We have learned through our monitoring and testing, that some constituents have been detected. The EPA has determined that your water IS SAFE at these levels.

All drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800)426-4791. MCL’s are set at very stringent levels. To understand the possible health effects described for many regulated contaminants, a person would have to drink 2 liters of water every day at the MCL level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons, such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800)426-4791.

Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate structure adjustments.

The City of Arnolds Park will not distribute the Consumer Confidence Report via mail. It will be posted at City Hall and the Arnolds Park Post Office. Copies will be available at City Hall upon request.

If you have any questions, please call Arnolds Park City Hall at (712)332-2341.
