Nathan's Ave Well

Mr. Johnson discussed the turbidity levels at the new well after installing the flow meter as suggested by Mr. Wright.   The flow was approx 358 gallons per minute and ended with a turbidity of 8.6.

Mr. Brooks asked when would the MDE come to approve the new well. 

Mrs. Dorman stated before contacting them, she would like to chart the turbidity so she would have something to show MDE when they come and the time it takes to get there.

Mr. Johnson informed the Commission it has been losing pressure and at this time he replaced the pressure gauge.  Mr. Johnson will begin charting the turbidity and hopefully once this information is obtained, MDE will make arrangement to come and inspect.  Mrs. Dorman's plan is to be ready by our next meeting in May.

Computer Software Update

 Ms. Dorman discussed the new computer software, informing the Commission that she will continue working with Edmunds to correct any issues and final payment will be held until which time she feels all obligations have been met.

Budget Preparation

After discussion of the proposed budget, Mrs. Dorman informed the Commission her only concern is the projected revenue which is always a gamble.  The current budget is a little less than last year, but it is realistic.

Mayor Victoria Jackson Stanley asked for a motion to approve in the absence of Commissioners Alschbach and Williams. Motion to accept Budget was made by Mr. Pasden, seconded by Mr. Brooks.

Superintendent's Report

Mr. Johnson discussed street openings and or repairs.  He reported on the Pumpage and Billing for the Month of March. 

Other

Mrs. Dorman stated she is working on finalizing the CCR Report for the State.  She was informed by the Lab and State we were in violation of a reporting issue.  Mr. Jacobs with MDE has helped her in correcting this error on the current report.

With no further business, a motion by Mr. Brooks to go into closed executive session, for Ms. Dorman to discuss the possible acquistion of Real Property, was seconded by Mr. Pasden and approved.

The MUC Meeting was adjourned at approximately 7:30pm.
