Wright County Commissioner, Ken Jude, requested an explanation of how the original operation and maintenance assessment was determined for Clearwater Lake residents. The explanation given is that assessments for projects are made based on an appraiser’s opinion of benefit for property owners downstream. Thus, the amount of assessment is greatest on Clearwater Lake.


Norm Wenck, Engineer, recommended that the Hidden River Sewer bid be approved at the August meeting. He also mentioned that the Clear Lake Wetland Treatment System appraisal has not been received.


Commissioner Ken Jude left at 8:21p.m.


Norm Wenck, Engineer, reviewed a Master Sanitary Sewer Plan Sequence of Events fact sheet that outlines the steps needed to accomplish a master sanitary sewer plan. Norm indicated that the next step is to begin our public dialogue meetings. The first is scheduled for 7:00p.m. on July 25, 2000 at the Park Pavilion on Oak Avenue in Annandale, Minnesota.
