City of Mosinee embracing technology to improve meeting efficiency
The City of Mosinee recently launched IQM2’s Legislative Management platform including Live and On-Demand Video Streaming. IQM2’s software synchronizes online video with Agendas, Meeting Minutes and the City Council meeting information packet. Using this software, the Mayor and City Council are now using Microsoft Surface Pro tablets during meetings to view the meeting packet. Going “paperless” was a big step but it will provide immediate savings in paper costs, copying costs and staff time. The City of Mosinee is committed to using technology to drive citizen engagement and governing efficiency. In addition to the great internal process efficiencies the City obtains using this software, citizens will now be able to watch and search public meeting information from any place in the world via the citizen public meeting portal. We know our residents are busy and it is often difficult for them to attend our public meetings so now they can stay involved at their convenience. Citizens are able to watch the portion of the meeting that they are interested in with a single click while reviewing all the relevant supporting documents. We are delighted at the transparency this is bringing to the City and the community. We urge our residents to take advantage of these wonderful services at http://mosineecitywi.iqm2.com.

Beginning the week of August 12th, the Mosinee Water Utility will begin a program of very aggressive water main flushing. This aggressive flushing will be done according to our written Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) Program. The UDF program utilizes computer generated models and system mapping to determine a sequence for flushing/cleaning individual sections of water main in a systematic method. Advantages of UDF over normal flushing: it minimizes the water needed to flush the system and removes more sediment and pipe scale buildup.More

Disposable Wipes Causing Problems
WARNING - Do Not to Flush!
We all enjoy modern conveniences such as anti-bacterial wipes, flushable wipes, disposable diapers, etc.
Our utility operators have seen an increase in rags and wipes in our sewer mains. Unfortunately, these items are notorious for plugging up wastewater pumps and can get caught on roots or other debris in sewer lines causing backups to occur.
We strongly advise against flushing these products. While manufactures advertise them as biodegradable, it takes significant time to breakdown the fiber bonds. Before the fiber bonds breakdown this "cloth like" material can create blockages in sewer pipes and pumping equipment that will lead to sewer back-ups. These items do not break down like toilet paper does.
When backups occur as a result of these types of items, it is often at the expense of the property owner. Grease is another issue that causes problems. Grease should be wiped from pans and disposed of in the garbage prior to washing dishes. Using soaps that claim to eliminate grease, only breaks it down for a short period of time where it again congeals further down the sewer line, clinging to other debris such as rags or roots. Remember, the sewer line that backs up could be yours!
The City of Mosinee is required to have a program in place to minimize lead in your drinking water. This is an ongoing process. This program includes corrosion control treatment, source water treatment and public education.
