3 Initial Vision -- A Neighborhood by Neighborhood Approach Municipalities will determine priority areas for I/I private property work.Municipalities will determine priority areas for I/I private property work. Plan will be submitted to the District.Plan will be submitted to the District. District will provide funding to the Municipalities.District will provide funding to the Municipalities. Options on the table – may be possible for District to lead work to provide economies of scale.Options on the table – may be possible for District to lead work to provide economies of scale. o Comment: There should be local control over all aspects of the program.

4 Equalized Value Allocation Funding Over the ten years of the program, funding will be provided to municipalities on a proportional basis, based on equalized value.Over the ten years of the program, funding will be provided to municipalities on a proportional basis, based on equalized value. o Comment: Certain communities may not have enough I/I private property work to utilize all the funding. o Newer communities may have fewer I/I issues than older communities. At the outset, all municipalities have PP I/I work to be done.

6 1. Prioritization of Work Municipalities will be asked to provide a list of priority neighborhoods.Municipalities will be asked to provide a list of priority neighborhoods. Identify priority neighborhoods based on all your available information: basement backup reports, sewer overflows, flow monitoring data, age of construction.Identify priority neighborhoods based on all your available information: basement backup reports, sewer overflows, flow monitoring data, age of construction. District will perform “common sense” review.District will perform “common sense” review.Feedback?

District has hired a consultant to do work across municipalities.District has hired a consultant to do work across municipalities. Program funding for design, investigation work per municipality to be capped at an amount equal to 2x a municipality’s 2011 equalized value allocation.Program funding for design, investigation work per municipality to be capped at an amount equal to 2x a municipality’s 2011 equalized value allocation. o Comment: Cap investigation work at 20% of total. Does this approach make sense?

8 3. Eligible Work Foundation drain disconnection will be eligible. Repair or replacement of deteriorated laterals will be eligible.Foundation drain disconnection will be eligible. Repair or replacement of deteriorated laterals will be eligible. No requirement for an inspection of laterals if known information (age, type of construction, location) indicates laterals likely to be a problem.No requirement for an inspection of laterals if known information (age, type of construction, location) indicates laterals likely to be a problem. Other remedies will be considered and approved if effective (like foundation drain switches).Other remedies will be considered and approved if effective (like foundation drain switches).

9 3. Eligible Work continued Overland flooding issues may be eligible on a case by case basis (cross reference BMP program).Overland flooding issues may be eligible on a case by case basis (cross reference BMP program). o Comment: Overland flooding should be eligible where it contributes inflow. Correction of currently illegal connections would not be eligible. Backflow valves/hung plumbing would not be eligible.Correction of currently illegal connections would not be eligible. Backflow valves/hung plumbing would not be eligible. o Comment : Do not fund correction of illegal situations. Plan for work would be submitted by Municipality to District for approval. Plan for work would be submitted by Municipality to District for approval.Comments?

10 4. Credits and Debits Each year, each Municipality would get an allocation of the funding based on Equalized Value (a “credit”).Each year, each Municipality would get an allocation of the funding based on Equalized Value (a “credit”). Municipalities would be authorized to spend money faster and be reimbursed (a “debit”) in later years.Municipalities would be authorized to spend money faster and be reimbursed (a “debit”) in later years. o Comment: This is a good idea. District would not cover interest costs, but this could be a way to move work to earlier years.District would not cover interest costs, but this could be a way to move work to earlier years.

11 5. Procurement Municipalities could procure work in a number of ways: public bid packages, homeowner reimbursements, pre-approving contractors. The District will require a competitive process to ensure good pricing.Municipalities could procure work in a number of ways: public bid packages, homeowner reimbursements, pre-approving contractors.

12 5. Procurement As a means of “jump starting” work, District could directly contract for work in priority neighborhoods in This would be foundation drain disconnection and lateral repair/replacement.As a means of “jump starting” work, District could directly contract for work in priority neighborhoods in This would be foundation drain disconnection and lateral repair/replacement. o Comment: Municipalities should do work on private property, not MMSD. o Comment: MMSD should not try to push program too fast. o Comment: MMSD staff time should be equitably allocated to communities receiving service. Could identify economies of scale, pricing, and other issues useful in planning future years.Could identify economies of scale, pricing, and other issues useful in planning future years. Comments on this approach? o Comment: Do a pilot program first to ensure effectiveness.

13 6.New Rules Are new MMSD Rules needed to ensure the program is effective?Are new MMSD Rules needed to ensure the program is effective? o Comment: MMSD should not issue new rules. o Comment: MMSD should have an incentive for Time of Sale ordinances. Should rules require disconnection of foundation drains or repair or rehabilitation of laterals or both, but only if the owner is offered financial assistance?Should rules require disconnection of foundation drains or repair or rehabilitation of laterals or both, but only if the owner is offered financial assistance? If owner does not accept offer, should owner be required to make repairs at his sole expense by District rule?If owner does not accept offer, should owner be required to make repairs at his sole expense by District rule?

14 7. Cost Share Should there be a cost share requirement from municipalities?Should there be a cost share requirement from municipalities? Is a cost share hard to do (or impossible) for 2011 funding, as municipal budgets require more planning?Is a cost share hard to do (or impossible) for 2011 funding, as municipal budgets require more planning? Would a cost share be a disincentive or barrier to participation?Would a cost share be a disincentive or barrier to participation? o We have heard proposals ranging from zero cost share to a 50% cost share. o Comment: No required cost match will help gain public acceptance.

15 8. Mandatory Participation All municipalities should participate in this program. All municipalities have I/I from private properties.All municipalities should participate in this program. All municipalities have I/I from private properties. o Comment: All municipalities should participate. o Counter Comment: Some municipalities do not have excessive I/I. If a municipality performs no work, and makes no plans to perform work, the District will utilize the municipality’s allocation to do private property work in that municipality.If a municipality performs no work, and makes no plans to perform work, the District will utilize the municipality’s allocation to do private property work in that municipality. o Comment: Do not reallocate funding to other municipalities.
