ELGIN CITY COUNCIL
Special Meeting Proceedings
A special meeting was held on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. Notice of said meeting had been posted at three places, namely, Dean’s Market, U.S. Post Office and the Elgin City Hall, as prescribed by law.
Mayor Schmitt called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. and announced the location of the Open Meeting Act.
Councilmen present were Don Mackel, Mike Dvorak, Jim Kittelson and Duane Miller.
Also present were Vicki S. Miller, David Burbach, Dennis Morgan, Michael Moser and Bethany Miller.
The purpose of the special meeting was to hear the presentation from David Burbach of Burbach Aquatics, Inc. regarding Step #1 of the pool study.
Mr. Burbach explained that Step #1 was the technical evaluation of the existing facility.
The purpose of the technical evaluation is to inventory the existing condition of the municipal facility, including the pools and buildings and provide comment on each of the facility categories, list recommended improvements necessary to restore the facility to good repair and meet the significant code requirements of the Nebraska Department of Public Health, Division of Environmental Health, Swimming Pool and Spa Program Code and Americans With Disabilities Act. It will also provide opinions of probable construction costs and present a summary with recommendations.
The overall condition of the pool is fair to good condition.
Mr. Burbach stated that the pool structure is in good condition with the exception to the upper portion of the wall, therefore he would recommend removing the upper portion of the pool wall and the concrete deck above the wall. Then either install a gutter or skimmer system.
Mr. Burbach explained that the bathhouse is in fair condition and has several cracks in the walls and does not meet code requirements.
His recommendation would be to build a 1500 square foot bathhouse.
Members of the Council felt that the cost could be greatly reduced and also asked if the construction of the bathhouse could be done by locals.
The total estimated cost to renovate the existing pool would $1,330,000.00 and replacement estimated cost would be $2,189,000.00.
Mr. Burbach explained that Step #2 would include the feasibility study, public opinion poll and conceptual drawings.
The cost of Step #2 would be $2,500.00; the cost of Step #1 was $2,000.00.
The timeline for Step #2 would be 6 months.
A brief discussion was held on financing options, such as, capital campaigns, grants fund raising and bonds.
Following the presentation, a motion was made by Mackel to proceed with Step #2. A second to the motion was made by Kittelson. All members voted aye and the motion carried.
There being no further business to come before the Elgin City Council, Mayor Schmitt declared the meeting adjourned. The meeting ended at 7:35 p.m.
A complete and accurate copy of these minutes is available for public inspection during normal business hours at the City Clerk’s office.
