Approval of Claims/Budget July 2019
Executive Director Jack Nemeth reviewed the July claims budget for the Board. At the end of July, the Agency was 17% through the fiscal year. On the revenue side, the Agency was at 17.56% of anticipated. Nemeth pointed out contractual income, gate fees, income from Dawes, Sheridan & Sioux Counties, special assessments, and other income. On the expense side the Agency was at 20.51% of anticipated. Nemeth pointed out engineering, plant improvement, fuel, disposal fees, wages, & motor equipment repairs. Nemeth explained that the reason for the monthly shortfall was due to the funds spent towards Engineering and Plant Improvement, namely replacing the conveyor at the Transfer Station. While we have the funds available in reserve accounts, the funds have not yet been transferred to match the payments and consequently result in a deficit at the bottom line at this time. Nemeth reviewed the reserve accounts for the Board indicating all are being funded properly. Nemeth reviewed the paid bills for the Board pointing out check numbers 44306, 44311, 44314, 44316, 44321, and 44359. Chairman Stewart pointed out 44364 for clarification.

Member Paul moved to approve the July Claims/Budget. Member Retzlaff seconded the motion. All members present voting aye. Motion carried.
Approval of Claims/Budget August 2019
Executive Director Jack Nemeth reviewed the June claims budget for the Board. At the end of August, the Agency was 25% through the fiscal year. On the revenue side, the Agency was at 25.74% of anticipated. Nemeth pointed out gate fees, the towns and counties, and other income. On the expense side, the Agency was at 28.48% of anticipated. Nemeth pointed out fuel, self-insurance expense, wages, & motor equipment repairs. Nemeth pointed out that the earmarked funds been transferred from the appropriate accounts per the budget, the cash flow for August would have resulted in a positive cash flow year to date of about $37,000. The funds transferred during September obviously do not show up in August budgetary results. Nemeth reviewed the reserve accounts with the Board of Director’s, indicating that all are being funded properly according to the budget. Nemeth reviewed the paid bills for the Board pointing out check numbers 44432, 44439, 44445, 44447, 44507, 44547, 44554, and 44557. Member Retzlaff pointed out 44449 for clarification.

Mr. Vince Ryan was present from GLR to review the audit with the Board. Mr. Ryan indicated that it was a clean audit report. Member Klein asked if there was a comparison from the previous year as requested. Mr. Ryan noted that he was unaware of this and next year they would include the prior year numbers for comparison purposes. Mr. Ryan indicated that the savings in insurance premiums and the decrease in contract services, accounted for a decrease in expenditures. Member Rohan moved to approve the audit as presented. Member Klein seconded the motion. The Board thanked Mr. Ryan for his time.
Request by Mr. Marvin Phillips to Address the Board Regarding Lien
Nemeth filled the Board in on the situation with Mr. Marvin Phillips. Mr. Phillips was unware of the Lien place upon his property. Mr. Phillips called the SWANN office a couple weeks ago to figure out why the lien was placed. Mr. Phillips stated he sold this property a few years ago. According to the Sheridan County Assessor, this property has not been sold within the last five years. The account was being paid for several years and then payment stopped. SWANN sent Mr. Phillips a certified letter informing him of the pending action against his property and Mr. Phillips had signed for the letter. Mr. Phillips stated that he does not pay much attention to his mail. The Lien was for 2017. Mr. Phillips states he lives in Hay Springs, but gets his mail at this property in Gordon. Nemeth pointed out the 90 day refund policy. Chairman Stewart apprised Mr. Phillips stating that he will be paying the 2017 Lien put against his property. Mr. Phillips stated he will go to the Sheridan County Treasurer’s office and get this Lien paid.
Request by Mr. Jerry Stumph, owner of Stumph Sanitation in Crawford, to address the Board Regarding Mileage Reimbursement
Mr. Jerry Stumph came before the board pointing out the extra mileage Stumph Sanitation and H & H Sanitation accrued by going to the Landfill during the Baler Breakdown. Mr. Stumph pointed out the date showing all the trips and mileage he made to the landfill during that time. Mr. Stumph submitted a bill to Nemeth and never received a payment. Mr. Stumph spoke to Nemeth last week and Nemeth stated this should be brought before the board to determine reimbursement. Stumph described how he determined his mileage to the Board. Stumph pointed out the money he was saving SWANN by hauling the garbage to the Landfill. By Stumph hauling to the Landfill, he stated he saved SWANN money by not having to bale the garbage and not having to haul it ourselves to the Landfill. Chairman Stewart asked Nemeth what the contract was we had with Crawford and Hemingford or with Stumph Sanitation and H & H Sanitation. Nemeth pointed out there is an Interlocal Agreement with Crawford and Hemingford. Crawford has sent SWANN a copy of the contract with Stumph Sanitation, but no contract has been received from Hemingford regarding the contract with H & H Sanitation. Nemeth states he believes it would be fair to pay for the requested mileage as the Board has done before, but would like the Board to make the final decision. Nemeth asked Stumph if he had contacted the City of Crawford about being reimbursed, and Stumph said no. Nemeth pointed out there is no contract stating SWANN is responsible to pay for those extra miles accrued during a breakdown. Member Paul stated to get an agreement in writing going forward. Member Rohan moved to pay both Stumph Sanitation and H & H Sanitation $3/mile when broke down for an extended period of time going forward. Member Retzlaff seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Resolution 2019-05: Approval of Insurance Renewal with LARM
Executive Director Nemeth apprised the Board of renewal requirements for insurance coverage, this is all other insurance except health insurance with LARM. Last year, the Agency paid $56,090. This year, with 180 notice and 3 year commitment, brings the total down to $43,426.28. LARM Representative, Nate Fox, was able to get the Collection Truck Driver’s classified as Driver’s instead of Sanitation Workers, which reduced the amount paid for Workman’s Comp. Member Paul moved to accept the 180 day notice of termination and a 3 year commitment/5% discount. Member Wacker seconded the motion. All members present voting aye. Motion carried.
Resolution 2019-06: SWANN Scrap Tire Disposal Policy
Nemeth pointed out the Agency takes four car/light truck tires free per day per customer. This was set up for the individual who may get one new set of tires per year, but this has been getting abused. Member Retzlaff pointed out this was set up for individuals, not commercial tire dealers or businesses. Nemeth pointed out the Agency is having to pay $15,000-20,000 per year on those four free tires per day that are brought in. Chairman Stewart pointed out SWANN is the only Agency is the only one in Nebraska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado that does not charge for tires. Member Paul stated the Agency should start charging for all tires. Nemeth pointed out most tire dealers are charging the $3/tire disposal fee when putting a new set of tires on the vehicle and then bringing them to SWANN free of charge. Member Paul moved to set the following charges on tires starting November 1, 2019; $3/tire on car and light truck tires, $6/tire on semi-truck tires, $20/tire on tractor/ag implement/irrigation tires, and $30/tire for heavy equipment tires. Member Klein seconded the motion. Chadron, Dawes County, Hemingford, Rushville, and Sheridan County voting aye. Clinton and Harrison voting nay. Motion carried.
Nemeth apprised the Board on the following items;
• The conveyor belt replacement will be here the first week of October. SWANN Employees will be doing the demolition on the old belt to help defray costs. A 12,000 pound telehandler with outriggers is going to be rented. $70,000 in funds have been transferred to help cover costs and funds transferred from Contingency funds to help out the bottom line. Funds will also be transferred to cover the costs of repermitting.
• The recycling status is still at a standstill with prices very low. Cardboard is priced at $20/ton, Plastic at $0/Ton, Office Paper at $0/Ton and Newspaper at $10/Ton. Sold a load of cardboard last week for $20/ton before it goes bad and is unable to be sold.
• A chemical reaction event took place at the transfer station on July 31, 2019. Fumes from a bale that had chlorine tablets reacted in the transfer station resulting in three employees going to the hospital. The fire department was called and resolved the situation. The NDEE was contacted and the bales that contained the chlorine tablets were able to be taken to the landfill the following day. A safety meeting was conducted the following day to prevent injuries in the future.
• The new collection truck will be in Texas to get the body put on the first to middle of October and they have 45 days to get that done. The truck should be delivered to SWANN by the middle of November.
