Holly Trustees Continue Landfill Compliance Measures

The Holly Board of Trustees selected Brase Insurance to provide liability insurance coverage at the municipal airport.  The Brase Insurance quote, at $1,725, was substantially lower than last year’s premium and provided the same amount of coverage.

The Trustees decided in favor of one of three options presented to them for groundwater testing at the Holly landfill.  Engineering firm, American Environmental Consulting, LLC, provided three options needed by the town to maintain compliance with the Colorado Department of Health and Environment.  The option selected, monitoring of groundwater flow, requires only one test well at the landfill site.  The Trustees left their options open to consider the other suggestions if needed to maintain compliance. 

The Electric Rate Tariff Study has provided information on irrigation rates to the board, which decided to table any action at this time.  Nebraska Municipal Power Pool conducted a study of possible electric rate proposals for Holly which are under review.  Town Clerk Mary Rushton will compile bids for the purchase of a new copier for the town.  The lease for the current copier is expiring, and discussion on a request for construction of a larger hanger at the airport was tabled pending additional information. 

Keith Dennis, Holly Field Services Supervisor, gave his monthly crew report, detailing work around the town.  Dennis said temporary power has been set up at the Reyman construction site on Main Street and the water meter has been relocated and the sewer main has been tapped.  The pad mount transformer for the new store has been ordered.  Some work was done to the playground equipment at the pool and a request was made to explore extending the speed bumps along the adjacent street.  Some motorists are going around the speed bumps and creating a potential hazard for pedestrians.
