MID-AMERICA COMMERCE PARK (WOLCOTT CORRIDOR) - SHELL BUILDING

Surveyor Ward stated this needs to be tabled until meeting with Travis Gaither, P.E., HWC Engineering, and Todd Frauhiger, P.E., AECOMM next week. Different drainage plan options for the project will be reviewed.

LANDOWNER –ED FEDERER

Mr. James Engleking, landowner, and Mr. Mark Holder, landowner, were sent a letter by the White County Surveyor requesting their presence at the White County Drainage Board meeting held on June 16, 2014 to discuss drainage and storm water runoff issues. Mr. Ed Federer was the only landowner present for the meeting.

 

The White County Drainage and Sediment Control Ordinance #91-04-20-98-1, signed November 16, 1998, require the landowners to submit a proposed drainage plan for review and recommendation prior to any construction changes. Mr. James Engleking, landowner, purchased the property approximately May 25, 2001. Mr. Mark Holder’s, landowner, property is grandfathered in and does not require a drainage review.

 

White County Attorney Loy stated this is a private matter the Drainage Board can mediate and suggest a letter be sent to the landowners requesting their attendance at a meeting.

 

Todd Frauhiger, P.E., AECOM, commented he has cost efficient ideas to solve their drainage issue.

 

 

JAMES L. KEEVER TILE BRANCH OF THE F.G. CHURCH DRAIN #522 - PETITION FOR RECONSTRUCTION

Petition carried by Steven L. Pass. The account balance is $12,429.48. The annual assessment is $2,904.27. The four year maximum is $11,617.08 and is on the 2014 Assessment list.

 

The tile currently runs through a wooded area that damages the tile and has to be constantly repaired, if possible. An option is intercepting the tile on the south side of the county road, bypassing the wooded area and getting it out in the open field away from tree roots.

· President Burton made a motion to accept the Petition for Reconstruction, seconded by Member Heimlich. Vote: Unanimous

MR. RICHARD OBERLANDER – Wolcott

Mr. Richard Oberlander was present at the White County Drainage Board after viewing the groundbreaking ceremony notice for the Mid-America Commerce Park-Shell Building.

 

Mr. Oberlander said the groundbreaking ceremony notice was disturbing to some Wolcott residents. He stated that he received telephone calls from concerned Wolcott landowners and decided to share his comments with the White County Drainage Board.

 

Vice-President John Heimlich stated the groundbreaking ceremony notice is ceremonial. There must be an approved drainage plan permit before proceeding with any construction.
