The Hutsonville Village Board heard a report on the NPDES permit and extended the electric aggregation contract.
As an example of the state's challenges, the Village of Hutsonville has not received their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for the waste water treatment plant. The renewal application was submitted back in June, but the permit has not yet been received.
Mayor Tina Callaway reported to the board at Tuesday night's meeting that she had been in contact with the individual who reviews the application, but was told she has not gotten to it yet. The five-year permit expires in December.
Callaway was also told that if the permit was submitted prior to the due date it was in compliance. She said she will be following up on the permit.
The village approved and extension of the electric aggregation contract with Good Energy/Homefield Energy. Current energy cost is 5.7 cents per kilowatt hour and will go down to 5.596 kwh. The contract extend to 2020.
In other business, Trustee Bruce Callaway suggested, that now that leaves are beginning to fall, that utility crews keep an eye on sewer drains and jet those needed service to prevent plugging as winter weather gets closer.
Trustee John Brooks also submitted the address of some local properties in town that were becoming delapatated and suggested Police Chief Paul Maxwell investigate for safety and nuisance them.
The next scheduled meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 12.
