ED FEDERER

Jim Engelking, Ed Federer and Mark Holder were present for the discussion about the drainage on their private ground and tile. President Burton informed the landowners that the White County Drainage Board jurisdiction for this private drainage plan situation is under the Drainage Ordinance established in 1998; the improvements were made after 1998.

Surveyor Ward explained that the landowners were present to discuss the water standing on property in a certain location. Discussion was had as to what causes standing water. Resolutions were discussed as to how best solve the problems.

White County Engineer Todd Frauhiger and Surveyor Bradley Ward have discussed the issue and a relatively inexpensive solution would be to construct a six (6”) – eight (8”) inch gravel curb (berm) on the north end of the Engelking parking lot to slow the migration of water off his property.

After deliberation Mr. Engelking agreed to do this.
