Larry Crouch from DCRWD spoke about Daleville Sewage Lines. Larry spoke about Daleville previously using TIF money to pay their bond off. He, Bobby Smith,
and one other board member were ready to give Daleville the Wastewater lines. Chesterfield and Anderson then came into the picture. He spoke of Daleville’s
new Council. He stated Daleville does not want DCRWD coming in to put in our new sewer lines to take care of new development occurring around Daleville.
DCRWD put all bonds into one bond, he stated Daleville is paying part of the bonds for the other regions right now since Daleville’s bond is paid off.
Larry mentioned that Brad Real is the “new guy” on the board. Brad came on “when all the snow was falling” on the Desoto project. The DCRWD came to find
out that the Desoto project was put in based on a 30 year old study. The project was needed, but took a lot of effort and a lot of convincing of the people
that they had to have it. Larry also stated as the lake develops and we get new development, Daleville would have growing economic development. He stated
that Daleville would have to provide water and wastewater service. He then stated that when “Jeff and the boys” came over 4 or 5 years ago and tried to get
the rates reduced, Larry mentioned at that time whenever Daleville put meters Daleville residences, wastewater could be measured. Larry stated that he took
the information to a meeting and he got shot down on that. He stated Brad was there when it was brought up. If Daleville takes the wastewater system over,
Larry stated the council would have to find out: how many miles of line we have, how many lift stations we have, number of manholes, go back 3 years and
see what maintenance and repair has been done and the cost involved, need to decide who is going to take care of the lines; who is going to be trained to
maintain the system. When the lift station goes down, someone needs to go out, fix it and reset. Larry was aware of our problem areas in Daleville.
Daleville needs to find out what the current DCRWD board is going to do about it this season. Daleville needs to ask what is planned for the Daleville
system. If there is something planned for the immediate future, let them fix it. He is telling Yorktown the same thing. He suggested we have someone go to
Chesterfield and re-negotiate our flow. He suggested someone from the board or someone appointed go to Chesterfield and re-negotiate our bill. Larry said
that Chesterfield is billing us based on 8,000 to 9,000 gallons per month. He stated the he knows we are not using that much. Larry inquired as to whether
we have all the businesses hooked up and charge them a different amount than residents. He inquired as to whether Chesterfield’s sewer maintenance crew
could manage our system as well. Jay Shellabarger said that was a definite possibility. Jay mentioned he had talked to Jack Taylor on the Chesterfield
Board. Larry said, “between now and September, I know you got 4 members of the 7 member board that would turn this system over to you cost free.” Jay
Shellabarger stated, “we need to do that.” Larry stated Daleville would have to lay some plans between now and then. Right now he has the votes to do that.
Chief King asked what the cost would be to replace the lines that have to be replaced or would Daleville have to go out and get a bond to bond it, to
replace the lines that the DCRWD said they would replace for them. Larry said Daleville would have to do a rate study and we would have to make sure our
rate study is high enough to bring in the income for maintenance and repairs. But if Daleville has a major systems, we would bond it. Chief King also
stated that Daleville’s rates would go back up if the rate has to be raised for a bond. The $47 bill right now would probably go up to $60-$70 if they have
to have lines repaired and get a bond. Larry said, “that’s whether you do it or we do it.” Larry stated Daleville needs to have it’s own entity. President
Roberts stated that right now Daleville is paying $47 and only so much of that is going to Chesterfield, the rest of it is going to DCRWD. President
Roberts believes Daleville has a cushion. Chief King stated that DCRWD is not giving Daleville the lines because it cost so much money. DCRWD should be
coming in and fixing the lines. Bill Walters stated the the money that lowered the bond came from the TIF district. He also stated that Chesterfield
negotiated with DCRWD, it was out of our hands because we lost our rights to the lines because we couldn’t maintain them in the past. Mr. Walters stated he
doesn’t see where “we have a spot at the table. We didn’t have a spot at the table during the negotiations when they went into the 20 year agreement, we
didn’t have a spot at the table when they went to the bond, and when we looked into it, no one paid us any attention. They have already made an agreement
with DCRWD. I have been to Chesterfield, they didn’t want to hear nothing out of us. I guess I have a hard time understanding where we even have a spot at
the table.” Larry Crouch stated, “I’m giving you a spot at the table.” Jay Shellabarger stated, “We want the spot.” Bill Walters stated DCRWD will give us
a spot at the table, but all the lines that need repaired and they did a smoke test and they are still coming in to repair things now, manpower and tax
dollars. We are running a town right now on a $465,000 budget-coming up with the extra money. We have residents that we have worked a bill from an $87 bill
down to a $47 bill and now we will jack it right back up if we take over the lines and still have to have an agreement with Chesterfield. They will be
treating the water. I want to know where is the win. The only win I see is DCRWD is dumping the lines on us and we have to fend for ourselves after that.
Jay Shellabarger mentioned if Daleville continues to have DCRWD control the lines, we are going to pay DCRWD plus that. He stated we take the lines.
President Roberts asked Mr. Crouch to continue. Mr. Crouch continued: Daleville and Yorktown is paying for Royerton and Desoto. Part of Daleville money
will be going to that. Nothing can be done about that. The thing Mr. Crouch is concerned about is who will maintain the lines. He suggested an OCRA grant
for wastewater, as well as a SRF (3% interest). Mr. Crouch was looking at our future as far as the Mounds Lake Project. He believes developers will be
coming in to build around the lake, and someone will have to provide the services and it doesn’t need to be DCRWD. Someone will have to provide water and
sewage lines for houses that are built. Mr. Crouch stated Daleville had to make a decision as to whether we wanted to take over the system or “let it
ride.” He stated he knows that there are problem spots in Daleville. He stated Yorktown relined the damaged pipes with material that is blown down through
the pipes, sealing the pipes, covering a 6 inch gap. He stated it was reasonably priced. Any work DCRWD has scheduled, let it happen. The votes will not be
there as people are replaced on the board. If we take over the pipes, we no longer have an obligation to pay money on the current bond. Larry stated he is
bringing Brad up to speed on things, since he is new to the board.

Sanitation charges on unoccupied or abandoned homes – Discussion ensued. No trash pick- up on property with no residence. Liens can be placed on unpaid
sanitation fees. Jay Shellabarger motioned for sanitation fees to be billed on all residences. Quarterly liens will be filed against homes with unpaid
balances. Joe Scott – 2nd. Motion carried with 5 yeas.
