President Gary Hansen brought the meeting to order at 6:35pm.  Attending were Gary Hansen, Carol Crozman, Jim Stewart, Lois Lund and Ed Striebel.


Secretary's Report:  Jim read the minutes from the September meeting.  Carol made a motion to accept the minutes with a 2nd by Gary.


Income Statement:  Lois presented the income statement.  Net income was $357.  Black Hills Power overcharged us by $1,000.  Rather than a refund BHP will maintain a credit balance.  A motion was made to accept the income statement by Jim, 2nd by Carol.


Water Report:  Ed presented the water report.  Water losses were in the 30 percent range given that we had 9 unpaid water bills.   The secretary failed to note a motion to accept and a second for the water repot.


Old Business:  The board still has a vacancy and there has not been much success in recruiting a new board member.


New Business: Dallas Wasserburger from Fourfrant Design present a proposal for an engineering study of the water system.  This study will evaluate the system and make recommendations for improvements.  FourFront’s fee for the study is $9,935.  


The board will need to compare and evaluate the CTEC and Fourfront proposals.



The next board meeting will be Wednesday, November 11th at 6:30pm.

Meeting adjourned at 7:45pm

Submitted by Jim Stewart, Recording Secretary.
