CLERK REPORT ñ All State and Federal Reports filed and paid.

Village Maintenance Report: Steve Heyen reported 1,194,000 gallons of water pumped.  Pumps ran for a total of 327 hours.  Lift station ran for a total of 105 hours. The output of the lift station still show our sewer system is still taking on drainage water.  Drawdown is completed at one of the wells.  The second well has a problem with tubing.  The tubing can be fixed or the village can buy reading equipment for drawdown totals.  Heyen also reported that he was briefed about Ash Bore problems at the utility conference.  League of Nebraska Municipalities recommend that an ordinance be enacted for residents to remove dead and sick trees from their property and public right-of-ways.  
The new plow is unable to plow in the residential circles due to the size of the vehicle.  The Montana tractor will be used to clear these areas. The fuel pumped was replaced in the F-550. Many people are asking what the village is going to do with the F-250.  Itís worth $1000 in scrap metal.  The village should request sealed bids on the sale of the truck with a minimum of $1000.

CORRESPONDENCE- AT&T has sent us documents to modify our lease agreement.  Our attorney has been given a copy for review.
  CLERK REPORT -  The results of our ISO Public Protection Classification survey were 08, 08/08x, 9/10.  After a little research I determined that the ratings were assigned to the public water supplies in support of the Union Rural Fire Board.  08 is the village, 08/08x is Cass County Rural Water, 9/10 is Otoe County Rural Water. 1 is the highest rating and 10 the lowest.
Village Maintenance Report: Steve Heyen reported 965,000 gallons of water pumped.    Lift station processed 3,792,000 gallons, possibly due to the heavy rain.  Heyen reported that he is trying to kill pond lilies in the lagoons and may need to use Round-Up.  Nitrates were reported at 9.8 which may also be attributed to heavy rains.  The maximum allowed is 10.  DHHS told Heyen to pump from both wells.  One is significantly higher in nitrates than the other.  Heyen will do some research on what can be done if we donít use the well with higher levels.  The McClanesí water meter is under water in the pit and unable to be read.  Heyen may need to raise the meter above water level and determine if itís still below frost line.  The roof at the Fire Hall was still leaking over the Volunteer Fire Office.  More tar was added and seems good after last storm.  Chairman added that the village may have to look into a foam coating if leak persists.  The John Deere is leaking oil.  Heyen is working on solving the issue.

Stewart sent an email to report 19 fires; 6 with Nehawka, 2 with Murray.  No Rescue Assists reported.
