B. SCADA System Proposals – Continued Discussion
Mr. Manousopoulos questioned the possibility of putting out more specific request for proposals. Mr. Valois, Public Works Water Operator, explained the difference between the RFPs where Austgen Electric is building a custom system for the Town and Gasvoda is just bringing in typical radios and antennas and selling it to us. Mr. Dravet, IT Director, explained that while Gasvoda met the minimum RFP, Austgen Electric is familiar with our system and the issues the Town has had with that system and designed their RFP to address those issues. Discussion ensued.

The Town Attorney advised that there is no legal reason that the Board can award the RFP based on the proposals in front of them. He further advised that even if one company provided above and beyond the minimum requested, the Board is within their rights to choose whichever company they wish. It is the sole discretion of the Board.

Mr. Dravet quoted from the RFP, “Alternative process or work elements may be proposed if deemed relevant and not in conflict with the base requirements in this RFP.”

Mr. Manousopoulos stated he feels they should put the RFP back out with specifics anew.

Mr. Manousopoulos made a motion to table awarding the RFP; Mr. Gembala seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously by roll-call vote.

Mr. Manousopoulos made a motion to approve the July 20, 2021 regular meeting minutes as presented. Mr. Furtek seconded the motion. The motion carried by a unanimous vote of 3-0.

NEW/OLD BUSINESS:

None to be had.

REPORTS AND CORRESPONDENCE

Mr. Pondinas stated the 12” water main on US 41 has been put in, pressure tested, and chlorinated. The new section they replaced is done. The State is working on the 42” storm sewer line. Hopefully the job will be done by September or October.

Mr. Salatas wanted to let the board know that there is a water operator training class in Michigan City that starts at the end of the month. The Town is going to be offering it to the public works employees because we only have two employees that are trained water operators, Bob Davis the Public Works Director and Bob Valois our current Water Operator. Mr. Valois will be leaving at the end of the month. A replacement for Bob has already started. We would like to get more of our employees trained. It will cost about $750/employee for the class.

We applied for the Swift Grant from the State which was water infrastructure. They have a hundred million dollars that they were funding. It’s a 50-50, so if we’re fully funded by the state, we should be getting 3.5 million dollars from the State on top of the over 8 million dollars that was taken out in the water bond. We will be getting our first distribution of the ARPA money for 4.2 million which the Town is tentatively planning to use for water infrastructure.

Mr. Gembala reported on the insurance rating project. Fire Chief Kevin LaDuke has been in contact with ISO and has received a packet of the necessary information to update our water system. There is one section for the water district to take care of and that’s the hydrant testing, flows and so forth. Chief LaDuke offered his people to do the PITOT testing which would cut down our costs. This is still in the works.
