This post at Brown County Matters
PERs – Applications for Funding. Helmsburg and the Brown County Regional Sewer District (RSD) Boards submitted their PERs on March 31. April 1 was the deadline. Link to copies of the PERs for Phase I
Approving Authorities. It is expected that the approving authorities – State Revolving Fund (SRF) and Rural Development (USDA) would provide feedback. The documents would be updated with needed feedback in preparation for the required Public Hearing (Date TBD) I’m looking forward to seeing the quality of the review provided by the SRF and USDA.
Next Joint Meeting with HRSD. Apr 25, 2023, 6:00 p.m. Brown County Community Foundation.
County Council Update? The BCRSD requested to be added to the agenda for the Council meeting on Apr 17, 2023. The intent is to provide an update regarding the proposed solutions. (PERs). The BCRSD board has refused to conduct a public meeting to defend what they identified as the scope and extent of the problem as identified in the County Wastewater Strategic Plan and Watershed Study that was developed at a cost of over $100K. Note the Commissioners are responsible for policy – the council is responsible for the budget.
Resolution? It was recommended that the county pass a resolution supporting the project. This would fall under the commissioner’s responsibility which implies that the commissioners are knowledgeable about the needs and scope of the project.
