Surveyor Ward presented information on the M.C. Pettit Open Drain #570. Surveyor Ward explained the M.C. Pettit is located in Honey Creek Township, it’s all open drain (approximately 6,800 feet in length). Surveyor Ward explained that he’s had a couple of requests for it to be cleaned. There are 387.533 acres benefitted, 21 parcels (with 7 minimums) and 15 landowners. The current rate is $1.00/ acre with a $5.00 minimum, making the one year assessment $408.97. To clean the entire open drain would cost approximately $10,200.00. The proposed rate was $4.00/acre with a $10.00 minimum. The board suggested to advertise rates at $8.00/acre with a $10.00 minimum, after 4 years the rate could then be dropped back to $2.00/acre.

There was short discussion on the Hoosier lift and that Commissioner Burton had a pump delivered.

There was also short discussion on the new Monticello Fire Department and water issues.

There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
