Surveyor Ward explained this is a shared drain with Cass County. They waived their rights to a joint board at their October 7, 2019 Drainage Board Meeting. Currently the rates are set at $1.50 an acre with a $5.00 minimum. White County collects $530.28 annually and Cass County collects $417.34 annually. The fund is currently negative $4,028.11, part of this drain was cleaned as part of the Carter Hines in 2018. The pending project estimate is approximately $14,500 for brush removal and dipping. After short discussion there was a motion by Vice President Heimlich to set rates for a 4 year payback at $10.00 an acre with a $10.00 minimum, then falling back to $3.00 an acre with a $10.00 minimum; with a second from Board Member Diener.

Vote: Unanimous (3-For, 0-Against)


There being no other business before the board, the meeting was adjourned.
