Unfinished Business: Drainage issues within the new housing subdivision were addressed by Ryan Anderson. The developer will fix drainage problems within the development and offers to help with other issues. Terry Bevans requests that his statement be in the minutes: Ryan Anderson states that he can’t add any more water flow to her property; as it is a state statute.
Nuisance issues were addressed re: enforcement, complaints, etc. SENDD will be contacted for continuing with Nuisance Abatement Program for Section 2 of the Village. Meeting agenda request forms and complaint forms are available at elmwoodnebraska.com or at the village office.
New Business: JEO Consulting Group and Olsson Associates submitted proposals for engineering of street development. Cost sharing with the NRD on the drainage project will be submitted. Fence permit @ 112 East C Street for Jason Brion – Section 7.11.01-03 Approved safety issue taken into consideration. Motion by Wray to approve the fence permit; second by Krass. Motion approved. Ethan Hohman tapered the homeowners’ driveway to make it so the culvert was not needed. The homeowner was told that a building permit was needed for the concrete work done on his driveway. Jason Brion will comply and pay fees. Jim Stephens of 221 North 6th St informed the board of a drainage issue with water running across the street and down his driveway into his garage and basement. Ditch on opposite side of the street has silted in; grading should be done to allow water to flow under the driveway across the street. The Board will look into the matter and seek estimates for grading. The subject of Emerald Ash Borers needs to be addressed as there are several ash trees in the village. Eugenia Bornemeier would like the tree in front of her house to be treated. This is a repetitive process and should only be done when the borers are within 15 miles of the village. The Arbor Day Foundation and NE Game & Parks Dept will be contacted for further information.
