City working on water discoloration issues
The City is experiencing discoloration in our water supply. The City is currently in the process of upgrading the water treatment plant. Last week the new calcite tanks at the WTP were put into service and the old lime feed equipment was removed. Since that time the iron levels in the drinking water have been elevated. This has caused the yellow or brown water complaints. With the removal of the lime feed system, the ph of the raw water is not raised enough to completely oxidize the iron and manganese and allow it to be filtered out, therefore some of the iron and manganese is getting through the filters and into the distribution system. As of Monday, we began adding potassium permanganate to aid in the oxidation of the iron and manganese. It appears that the potassium permanganate is working. Testing this morning showed greatly reduced iron and manganese levels in the water. We will continue to monitor and adjust the chemical feed as needed. Residents should be seeing improved water quality today, but it will take a couple of days for the “off-colored” water to get worked out of the system. The water is bacteriologically safe. Next week we will begin our spring water main flushing and this will help to get the water system cleared up as well.

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.
