Chatfield moves forward to create Capital Improvement Plan


Fri, May 17th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

By Karen Reisner

City engineer David Morrill, McGhie and Betts, discussed the process to create a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) at the Chatfield City Council’s May 13 meeting. Councilors Paul Novotny and Robert Pederson were absent.

The city has completed televising the older (pre 1970s) sanitary sewer lines. There also is data on water mains and information about street overlays, sidewalk programs and the condition of other infrastructure. The short term goal is to prioritize the work that is needed and create a budget. Morrill listed possible funding sources that included bonding, utility rates, and assessments of property owners.

The estimated cost for the services of McGhie and Betts include updating the inventory ($3,200), rating the condition of infrastructure ($4,200), the cost estimating process ($1,800), and the production of the CIP for the next several years ($3,600).

Morrill expects the complete process to produce the CIP to take up to four months, adding it will require some city staff time. The fees charged are based on an hourly cost. If more time is needed than expected further negotiation of cost could follow.

Councilor Mike Urban asked whether or not the council should wait to decide about authorizing the services until Novotny and Pederson were present. City Clerk Joel Young noted he had discussed the production of the CIP with Paul Novotny and Novotny had indicated he supported going forward. Young said the plan would set priorities for water, sewer, or street projects and help them figure out how to fund the work. Councilor Ken Jacobson said they had discussed doing a CIP at a Committee of the Whole meeting last year.

The council voted unanimously to move forward to produce a Capital Improvement Plan.

Other Business In Brief

•The city applied for a permit from MnDot to have a safe pedestrian crossing just south of the intersection of TH 52 and 30. The city will be responsible for establishing the crosswalk stripes and maintaining them. MNDot will put up signage to make notice of the pedestrian crossing.

•A resolution approving the city/club trail agreement with Chatfield Trails, Inc. was adopted. The city serves as the government sponsoring unit. The Minnesota Off-Highway Vehicle Trail Assistance Program grant application was for the amount of $15,000. The money is used for ATV trail maintenance.
