CORRESPONDENCE- NTR
CLERK REPORT – Clerk had phone meeting with JEO to participate in the 5 year update of the Cass County Mitigation Plan. Clerk reported that one of the mitigation actions determined in the original plan for storm drainage was no longer needed. Erosion control in Floodplain item has been satisfied with tree plantings in the park and assuring structures in floodplain are not permanent structures that restrict the flow of water. A third mitigation action that was identified 5 years ago was the necessity of a generator for the lift station and should now be in the planning process. Clerk will be attending another planning session for the update sometime in July and will add the need for an updated emergency siren system. Cost of mitigation actions in this plan are subsidized by FEMA for communities that participate in the plan updates.
Village Maintenance Report: Steve Heyen reported the well pumps ran for 376 hours, pumping 1,644,000 gallons of water. Lift station ran for approximately 200 hours processing 2,208,000 gallons of wastewater. Heyen sprayed lagoons and ballfield areas for weed control. Heyen reported that dandelions are becoming an issue this year in the village but when he sprayed to eliminate them a few years ago residents complained that trees near the sprayed areas were affected. Board suggested that he try to find a liquid weed and feed product that will just affect dandelions.
Fire Report- NTR
Union United- Caboose painting is finished. The contractor was unable to finish decals that were located on rivets because he didn’t have the tool necessary. Clean Up is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend. Residents are reminded that there will be no tire recycling this year.
NEW BUSINESS:

The Health Board, consisting of Chairman Seyler and Cass Crook, did a walk though of the village as a result of multiple complaints of nuisance properties. The inspection bought attention to yard waste piling up in residents’ yards. Ruby requested that a temporary burn pile be set up behind the ball park until June 1st for residents to bring their yard waste so yards can be cleaned up prior to nuisance actions being taken.

The Health Board will meet again to compile a list of properties and the nuisance violations on each of them so a letter can be sent out with the ordinance as reference. Each property owner will be asked to take care of the violations by a certain date and apprised of the consequences for non-compliance.

Seyler appointed Donna Ruby as the 3rd member of the Health Board.

The Board discussed possible future uses of the newly acquired lots in the park. They discussed using the barn as facility to rent for events, however, the concrete floor will have to be replaced and the building completely cleaned because livestock and fowl were housed in it. The Board would rather use it as a future site for new playground equipment. The fence will be taken down, except for the west side along the rail road tracks, to make it easier to mow and maintain.

Vidlak motioned to adjourn at 7:48pm. 2nd by Crook. By Roll, Trustee votes are as follows: Seyler – Aye, Vidlak – Aye, Eaton – Absent, Ruby – Aye and Crook- Aye.

The next regular meeting is scheduled for June 12, 2019 at 7 pm at the Union Fire Hall. The Meeting Notice and Agenda will be posted for the public at the Village Office, the Union Junktion, and the Union Post Office.
