TOWN OF GENEVA
SPECIAL TOWN BOARD MEETING
OCTOBER 29, 2009
Chairman Lauderdale called the duly posted and noticed meeting to order at 7:13 p.m. Roll Call taken. In attendance were Lauderdale, Supervisors Fahey, Kukla, Millard, and Administrator Downing. Supervisor Kamps was excused. Clerk/Treasurer Kirch took the minutes of the meeting. Motion (Millard/Fahey) to approve the agenda. Approved 4-0. Motion (Kukla/Millard) to approve the minutes from the September 29, 2009 Smart Growth Meeting. Approved 4-0.
Doug Mushel from Kapur & Associates reviewed details of the plan designed to address the North Como Road drainage problem. Minimized the storm sewer as much as possible to limit cost. Mr. Slack and Mr. Daily were in attendance and asked several questions. Revised plan as Mr. Slack wasn’t acceptable to have the ditch outside of the right-of-way. A ten foot temporary construction easement would be required from all adjacent property owners. Would ditch the first 1,000 feet of the project, but the low spot of the area would need a pipe. Cannot stay within the right-of-way without putting in a pipe. Total project is 3,500 feet. Estimated cost is $217,000 ($197,500 plus 10% for contingencies). Property will be restored back to its current condition. Plan is designed to handle 25-year storms. Have to put together the project manual. Cannot proceed with project unless grant funding is secured. Best source would be the USDA Storm¬water Grants. Motion (Fahey/Millard) that since we have all of the groundwork for this project, that we will continue it based on available funding. Approved 4-0.

Discussed the drawings, details, and scope of the project at the Lake Committee meeting. Lake Committee recommends approval to the Board. Kukla reviewed the plan with the two neighbors, Grosspietsch and Feldgreber. They were very positive, but concerned about parking. Wanted no parking zones and no lights at the launch itself.
