7:03:10 PM Gulledge Explained that this has been an ongoing dispute on the system that the Village is being billed at. They have met several times with Collinsville, and at one time they told him not to pay anything. We mailed them a check and they sent it back, saying to hold the payments. This has been going on and on. He has been trying to get a meeting set up with them. They called and asked for some money. He, his staff, Juneau and Attorney Wigginton looked at where we think we're at, and this is what we think is owed to them at this time.
7:03:51 PM Schmidt Asked if this was on the Country Lane project.
7:03:55 PM Gulledge Answered no, this is strictly for the sewer bill. That is why the amount is so large; it has not been paid for several months, but at their request.
7:04:10 PM Bell Said he had a question on page 6 about the Park & Rec bill total of $431.93.
7:04:29 PM Long Answered that this is the total of the general Park & Rec and the Park Board expenses. She showed him the two totals and explained since it is the same fund the computer automatically gives a total for the overall expenses.
7:04:57 PM Callahan Arrived and was seated.
7:05:49 PM Gulledge Asked if there were any other questions. There were none. He asked for a motion to pay the bills as submitted. Motion by Bell, second by Schmidt to pay the bills. Voting on the motion: Schmidt - yes; Bell - yes; Callahan - pass; Kostyshock - yes. Motion carried.

7:07:19 PM Gulledge Asked Kostyshock if he would take up the radio read meter system at this time.
7:07:38 PM Kostyshock Asked if all bids should be discussed or just the bid they have decided to accept.
7:07:43 PM Gulledge Replied if they were going with the middle quote, then Presson needs to explain why, because it is a little bit of a change, and the quotes did not make it in the Trustee Packets.
7:07:52 PM Presson Explained that he did not get the final numbers from Data Technologies before the packets went out. He gave them out prior to the start of the meeting. He explained the options. The Board had set a limit of 150,000.00. Data Technologies price for the software, installation and conversion, license fee and support total was $13285.00. With this in mind, he put together three options: Option 1 total for 676 radio read meters is $152651. Option 2 total for 476 meters and 300 ERT conversion units is $149951. Option 3 total for 476 meters is $110951.
7:09:38 PM Bell Asked if the 176 and 300 were 3/4 inch and 1 inch meters
7:09:49 PM Presson Answered that the 176 meters would be the 3/4 inch, and the 300 would be one inch and the 300 ERT units would be divided at his discretion.
7:09:57 PM Bell Asked if they are different for the 3/4 and one inch. He was told no.
7:10:27 PM Gulledge Said it looks like the Village is getting a hundred extra meters with Option 2.
7:10:38 PM Presson Said there will be an extra hundred with the ERT units. These he plans on installing on the meters recently put in the newer subdivisions.
7:10:44 PM Gulledge Asked Presson if it is his recommendation to go with Option 2.
7:10:54 PM Presson Answered yes.
7:11:19 PM Bell Said his opinion is the Board can approve this, then work in phases, where the system is converted over to Summit, get it up and running, and then come in with the Easy Route, add that, then make the purchase of all the meters.
7:11:58 PM Presson Replied that they want to do it all at one time. They want everything here so it can be checked and made sure it all works together.
7:12:09 PM Bell Asked who "they" were. Presson told him Data Technologies.
7:12:18 PM Gulledge Again asked Presson if his recommendation was Option 2. Presson replied yes. He asked Kostyshock if this is what he wanted to do.
7:12:35 PM Kostyshock Replied yes, he likes the fact that with this option the Village is getting a hundred extra meters.
7:12:42 PM Bell Said there is another technical issue to consider. The first thing Data Tech is going to ask for is a layout of the format of data from CRC. Someone will have to do this.
7:13:05 PM Schmidt Asked Presson what he didn't like about this.
7:13:18 PM Presson He thinks it is a great system. He feels very comfortable with it. He thinks this is a huge leap forward for the Village of Maryville. It is something that will pay off both in manhours and money saved.
