Nathan’s Ave Well

Mrs. Dorman informed the Commission that we have our temporary certificate of potability until we get our construction permit, which at the time was overlooked. The well is good and will continue to run until it is shut down in the winter. Turbidity levels are running very consistent.

Mrs. Dorman discussed moving money that is currently in a non-interest bearing account to an interest bearing account.

Motion to move money was made by Mrs. Alschbach, seconded by Mr. Pasden.

Approved.

Holliday Schedule for MUC Meeting

There were two dates discussed for a dinner meeting to be held in December to cover both November & December meetings. December 4th or 11th was suggested pending availability of the Yacht Club. Ms. Dorman will make the arrangements and confirm a date.

Lead & Copper Testing

Mrs. Dorman reported to the Commission that the State Requirement for Lead and Copper samples have been fulfilled except three which were returned for re-do due to time lapse of sample. Once the last three have been collected, our responsibility will be fulfilled. All test so far have come back negative and customers have been notified.

Superintendent’s Report

Mr. Johnson discussed street openings and repairs. He reported on the Pumpage and Billing for the Months of July and August.

Mr. Pasden asked what the average cost are for patching the holes. Mr. Johnson said it would be about $6500.00. Mr. Pasden suggested getting bids for a good estimate at this time.

Mrs. Dorman informed the Commission that they have found out what the cause is for some of the unaccountable water. Mr. Dorman and Mr. Johnson have found it is coming from the prelube lines running constantly from the well to the pump.

Mr. Bramble contacted Mr. Wright to confirm the problem and they are both in agreement that this has to be corrected.

Personnel

Mrs. Dorman explained we have an employee entitled to a promotion because he has fulfilled his obligation of passing his State Exam for Water Production Operator.

Motion to approve promotion was made by Mr. Pasden, seconded by Ms. Alschbach.

Approved.

Absent: Mr. Steve Williams

Mr. Joe Brooks

With no further business, a motion was made to adjourn at approximately 7:18 pm.
