- ADMINISTRATIVE ITEMS:
Year End Report-Larry gave the financial report for the period July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Larry stated it was an average year, there was a slight increase in expenses due to rising costs but revenue offset that from higher water usage and transfer fees. If you would like a copy of the financial report contact Libby.
- OLD BUSINESS:
Past Year Improvements-Tim spoke about the various projects from the past year. Those include the Silvertip Generator Project, the Skyline Generator project and bollards on fire hydrants. These generators automatically come on during power outages.
- WATER MANAGER’S REPORT:
Rick reported that there was one positive water test in July for coliform, retested and was negative next time, could be false positive. System is in good shape.
- SNOW REMOVAL REPORT:
Willi reported that the snow removal fleet is in good shape and ready to take on any storm.
- NEW BUSINESS:
Jim and Rick talked about the leak at the Skyline tank. Lots of research has been done on fixing/replacement options. It has been decided to replace the tank. Approximate estimate is $150-200k which will be taken out of reserves. Lots of pretests to do etc to prepare aiming for summer 2022.
A neighbor was concerned about the amount of water usage by some. It was discussed that we encourage conservation but do not limit anyone’s water. Water usage is tiered and the higher the usage the higher the bill, so customer is paying for it. This tiered usage is also accounted when budgeting.
The anual meeting was adjourned at 10:30am. The next meeting is scheduled for November 9, 2021 at 8:30am at the Howard J. Perry Maintenance Station.
