F.M. COONROD #526 BRANCH #7 – PETITION TO PUT ON MAINTENANCE

Petition carried by Ronald Coonrod. Surveyor Ward said F.M. Coonrod currently has six (6) branches; therefore he labeled this branch the F.M. Coonrod #526 Branch#7. The new Liberty Substation III on SR 16 by the landfill prompted this petition from the landowners. It is in Liberty Township and is approximately three quarter mile (3/4) long.

 

There are four (4) affected landowners: Ronald Coonrod, Liberty Landfill, Mary M. Perry Revocable Trust and Ron Roth. The landowners do not want to give an easement; instead they petitioned to get an open ditch. The seven five (75) foot easement affects landowner, Ron Roth, as he has at least two (2) outlets into the ditch; however the ditch is actually on the Liberty Landfill and Mary M. Perry Revocable Trust property.

 

Surveyor Ward request guidance to either make this land part of the F.M. Coonrod watershed or put the F.M. Coonrod #526 Branch #7 on Maintenance as a separate regulated open ditch and be assessed on its own.

 

President Burton asked “does this ditch currently need maintenance?” Surveyor Ward responded “that it does not need immediate attention in the near future.”

 

Member Diener commented the landowners will be assessed on two ditches if the land is put on maintenance.

 

Vice President Heimlich pointed out that the landowners will still be assessed on the F.M. Coonrod #526.

 

Attorney Loy advised that there will have to be a public hearing for the landowners. Also, he wanted to know if the landowners understand they will pay for this maintenance.

 

The Drainage Board recommends this land be put on the F.M. Coonrod #526.

 

  • Vice President Heimlich made a motion to accept the F.M. Coonrod #526 Branch #7 Petition to put on Maintenance; seconded by Member Diener. Vote: Unanimous

 

 

 

 

 

HERMAN W. SNOW #584 – PETITION FOR MAINTENANCE

Petition carried by Pete Crowell, Mike & Penny Thomas representative. White Rock Farms, Matt Hubbard, is the other landowner signature on this petition. Mike & Penny Thomas recently purchased approximately seventy seven (77) acres in the Herman W. Snow #584 watershed, along Freeman Road, and request the ditch to be cleaned.

 

  • Vice President Heimlich made a motion to accept the Herman W. Snow #584 Petition for Maintenance; seconded by Member Diener. Vote: Unanimous

 

 

 

 

 

JOHN L. BUSS #518 – COUNTRYBROOK SUBDIVISION DRAINAGE

A Petition for the John L. Buss Ditch #518 was requested by Mayor Houston, City of Monticello.

 

Gordon Road expansion prompted this petition. They want to capture the water off Gordon Road and divert it to a new storm structure to the John L. Buss #518 ditch. The City of Monticello is concerned the Monticello City Park will flood in the lower area.

 

Recently discussed is the Southlawn Urban drain, along South Park Road put in the early to mid 1970’s, which is currently maintained by the City of Monticello. The drain potentially could be intercepted along South Park Road and connected with a storm system installed for a subdivision (Countrybrook). There is a thirty (30) feet wide drainage easement thru the backside of lots (9 or 10 lots) as part of the recorded subdivision plat. Countrybrook subdivision landowners do not pay an assessment. There is a combination of city and county water running thru there. The cemetery, owned by the Union Township Trustee, is on the west side of airport road.

 

Superintendent Arthur, City of Monticello Street Dept., said there has not been maintenance other than general cleaning on the Southlawn Urban (South Park) drain; however there has been minor tile (36”) hole maintenance on the Countrybrook storm system.

 

Member Diener said anybody on a mutual drain can petition for it to become a regulated drain; it is an existing mutual drain that can be created into a regulated drain that we can extend to solve drainage problems in South Park and Gordon Road. It should be a separate new drain from the John L. Buss #518 system.

 

It helps alleviate an existing drainage problem with the lower park by taking some of the water that is currently going to the John L. Buss #518 and then down to the park. And then taking over half or more(65-75%) off the Gordon Road project, also going that direction, so it solves the problem of Gordon Road and it also alleviates some of the water from going into the John L. Buss #518 from the South Park addition. They can intercept it at the street, with the right-of-way, by the tree line; then almost all of South Park will be diverted into this potentially different drain.

 

Attorney Loy advised Surveyor Ward to prepare the John L. Buss #518 petition to assume jurisdiction over a mutual regulated drain. Also, he commented on how the landowners will be assessed.

 

 

 

 

NIPSCO – SUBSTATION

Christina Svoboda, Natural Resource Program Mgr., NIPSCO, presented maps to the Drainage Board. She explained a powerline rebuild (replacement of 69 existing poles being replaced where they are) from the Monticello substation south to Oakdale Dam and said NIPSCO will be crossing three (3) regulated ditches. She request direction on minimums for engineering. The project will start the first week of April.

 

The Herman Snow #584 ditch will have three (3) poles within the drainage easement replaced. The poles are five (5’) feet, thirty-two (32’) feet and forty-two (42’) feet.

 

Surveyor Ward request twenty-five (25) feet minimum to do repairs as needed to get between the poles and the ditch.

 

Attorney Loy advised he would draft a contract and forward to NIPSCO.
