3. OTHER BUSINESS Trustee Blohm wanted the trustees to know that School District 3 had been using volunteer Coaches but this year they are using paid coaches and are thinking of how to thank those volunteers. Trustee Blohm also mentioned that there was some interest in possibly constructing a six lane track at the Algonquin Road SOCCer fields near ARS.
Administrator Soderholm reported that the Village has received a quote of $350 to number the 54 parking Spaces at Picnic Grove Park and that staff is planning on starting the work now in preparation for the new parking fee which is to start in the Spring.
Today was the bid opening for the SCADA System Upgrade. The bid came in within the budgeted amount and will allow the Village to add the equipment to automate the finished flow pump readings as well as remotely read the levels of the three lift stations. For an additional $6,000, the Village could add the pump reading equipment to Wells #1 and #2. Village Board was in agreement to proceed with the additional work.
The Village Administrator noted the 2016-17 Water/Sewer Capital Fund budget includes replacing the generator at WTP#1 and resurfacing the screw pumps at the WWTP. The current generator's capacity is 90K but due to EPA concerns/specifications a new 90K generator will not give us the power that we need. This generator needs to be replaced with a 125K generator (at a higher cost). Therefore the Village will be deferring this item to the 2017-18 budget. The cost for the resurfacing of the screw pumps is higher than budgeted and is also being deferred.
Administrator Soderholm explained that the excavation contractor for the new Public Works facility is asking for an additional $13,000. The change order request is all related to the excessive ground water issues that have occurred. The Committee agreed to grant the change order.

ADJOURMENT Trustee Knar made a motion to adjourn the Committee of the Whole at 8:05 p.m. Trustee Wall seconded. Roll Call: Trustees Anderson, Blohm, Curtiss, Knar, Migdal and Wall-all "yes". MOTION PASSED.
