April 26, 2023 Minutes

May 09, 2023

A special meeting of the Stratton Village Board of Trustees was held on Wednesday April 26, 2023 at 7:00 pm CT at the Village Clerk’s Office. Notice of the meeting was posted and availability of the agenda was communicated in the advance notice. A poster of the “Open Meetings Act” was clearly visible on the board room wall, and Chairman Hanes directed the attention of those present to the poster. All proceedings hereafter shown occurred while the meeting was in session. Present: Chairman S. Hanes, Trustee K. Sutton, Trustee P. Bohochik, Trustee M. McDonald, Trustee J. Griffiths, Clerk T. Hedrick, Utilities Superintendent M. Petersen, Deputy Clerk D. Burk, members of the public Melissa Dailey, and Wade Hanes.


The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m.



A claim submitted regarding cleanup cost for sewer backing up into a resident’s basement was reviewed and discussed. The location of the sewer main and the alleged damage was reviewed. Utilities Superintendent Petersen stated that he doesn’t think anyone one sitting at this table could make the decision on who was at fault for the sewer backing up and suggested to let the adjuster for the Village insurance make that decision. It was noted that paying without determining liability may set a precedence for future problems if they were to arise. The board would like to hear what the Village attorney’s option is on the matter as well and direct Clerk Hedrick to contact him as well as the insurance company.

The board would also like to see prices on what a company would charge to inspect and clean all sewer lines in town. The board would like a more detailed record of the maintenance program. Superintendent Petersen will contact companies for more information on this.

Chairman Hanes inquired to member of the public Wade Hanes if he was recording the meeting. Wade stated that he was not.


Motion by Hanes and seconded by Sutton to adjourn the meeting. Roll call: Ayes: Sutton, Bohochik, McDonald, Griffiths, Hanes. Nays: None. Motion carried and meeting adjourned at 7:17pm.


The next regular meeting of the Village Board of Trustees will be held on Monday, May 15, 2023 at 7:00 pm at the Village Office.
