After further discussion it was decided to add an additional 400’ of line to make sure all moisture problems could be addressed and rectified. The original cost estimate from Ricklefs Excavating LTD,

Motion by McKean, seconded by Crump to rescind the approval of estimate #1138, lower dewatering
drain line to 4’ below existing surface and extend the south line to the creek, and the east line to the
detention pond at a cost not to exceed $16,000, Ricklefs Excavating. Motion carried 5-0.
It was decided that it would be in the best interest of the school district to go with a deep water trenching system instead of the 4’ deep lines mentioned above. Motion by Kilburg, seconded by
Riniker to approve estimate #1136, deep trench dewatering system for building pad and parking lot
only. 6” tile with sock, in a 14” wide trench with 5’ of porous backfill in lower ½ of trench. The
original cost estimate from Ricklefs Excavating LDT was $112,792.50, but because of some savings
from previous estimates #1136 was lowered to $100,000 or less. Motion carried 5-0.
Motion by Crump, seconded by Riniker to adjourn at 6:53 p.m. Motion carried 5-0.
