FINANCIAL REPORT – Sue Larson reviewed the financial report with the Board.  Report is attached and made a part of the record.


Chair Kranig asked to skip to Item 8(a) on the agenda – St. Francis Drive East and West Water Issues.  The majority of the public in attendance are residents of this subdivision and that came before the board to discuss the water drainage issues in their neighborhood.   Chair Kranig read a report, prepared by Liz Fagen of the Eau Claire County Land Conservation Division, regarding a recent study conducted of the water drainage problems in this area.   The report is included as an attachment and made a part of these minutes.  The report concluded that the development and construction of the homes in the subdivision complied with the regulations in effect at the time, but that above normal rainfall for the past 5 years has supersaturated the ground and groundwater levels have risen.  In addition, there appears to be some grading, yard development and fill added to areas intended for drainage purposes that would also potentially add to the problem.  The report recommends contacting the DNR to review the site and to complete a wetlands delineation.  Chair Kranig will coordinate contacting the DNR for this purpose with the County Planning and Development office.
