Due to the plant being updated earlier this year, it is producing 2,300/gallons a minute, but the meter only goes to 2,000/gallons a minute. Cost to replace the valve and associated parts is approximately $7,000. Councilmember Williams moved that the valve be replaced. Motion seconded by Councilmember Jensen and carried.

13. WATER EXPANSION PROJECT PHASE I (WATER TANKS) - Committee Report
Councilmember Williams reported that the bids received for construction of the Water Tanks exceeded the funds available. Vern Jones reported that CRS Engineering feels the reason for the added cost is that the market is driving the cost up. In addition, there is a question on the excavation of the 2 million gallon tank based on the soils condition, plus the fact that the engineering estimate in excess of a year old. Vern stated that under the existing loans with the Water Drinking Board and the Community Impact Board, that the City cannot exceed those amounts by 10% without reapplying for a new loan. However, reapplying will not take care of the entire cost. It would only add another $300,000, and we would still be short $800,000 on the total project. He will investigate the possibility of obtaining more money. The Community Impact Board indicated that if the City was to ask for more funding, the earliest they could be on the agenda is August. The earliest date for funding would be December. This puts the City in a bind, as we are within weeks of closing on the existing revenue bonds. Vern stated that the instead of increasing water rates, the most amenable solution would be to approach the CIB for a million dollars in the form of a grant. If the CIB does not go for this, a second scenario would be to request a partial grant and a restructured loan at 3%. If the present loan was restructured, it may be possible to keep the same interest rates, only take more money. Kelly Murdock is working on this at the present time. Either way, it jeopardizes the revenue bond system. It would cost more money for the bonding. The other alternative would be to downgrade the project itself, and eliminate the 2 million gallon tank. Cost of this tank is $900,000. It could be placed back in the project in 3 or 5 years. Councilmember Williams stated that a lot of work and time went into exploring to see what was needed. If the 2 million gallon tank is put off 2 or 3 years, it will end up costing more than it would cost now. He feels the City should look at some other funding source and move ahead and award the project to include the tank. Vern stated that if the City was to do their own municipal or revenue bond with a lending agency, the interest would be about 6%. Councilmember Nikas questioned if there is going to be enough money for the second phase of the project. Those estimates are also a year old. He felt downgrading would be in the best interests and that the 2 million gallon tank could be done as a separate project at a later date. Pat Larsen stated that if it is possible, another option would be to go 10% over the loans. This would amount to $300,000, and the balance can be funded through the Water Department. Gary Sonntag stated that the 2 million gallon tank was to work in combination with the 10 million and 3 million gallon tanks. It is important in respect to the overall storage. Not only now but in the future with consideration that we want to obtain between 2 and 3 days storage. This is taking into consideration the elimination of the steel tanks as they deteriorate. If the 2 million gallon tank was not constructed at this time, the City would still be ahead by constructing the 10 million gallon tank in the location chosen. Changes could be made in the design and the way the system functions, such as operation of the valves and pressure zones. However, there would not be as many gallons for storage. It was suggested that staff review this more thoroughly and investigate the possibility of more funding.
