November 9, 2011


The meeting began at 6:32pm.  Attending were Randy Alexander, Jim Stewart, Kathy Colasardo, Carol Crozman, Dick Helmstetter, Lois Lund, and Ed Streibel.


Secretary's Report:  Jim read the minutes from the October meeting and Kathy motioned to accept them with a 2nd by Jim.


Income Statement:  Expenses exceeded income by $165.  Jim motioned to accept the income statement with a 2nd by Dick.


Water Report:  Water losses for the month were 52 percent.   Ed suspects there is a leak in the upper part of the system given the increased hours on the booster pumps in pump house 1.


The project to relocate the pumps in pump house 1 begins on November 10 and should be completed within a week. 


Ed also advised the board that if the system rebuild project goes forward that we should keep the valves at the corners of Woodland Dr and Chickadee and Bluebird and use them to replace the curb stops being used as mainline valves in the upper part of the system.

Old Business:  Our preliminary loan application paperwork was misplaced by the state and new paperwork had to be prepared and submitted.   Before the loan can be approved the board must hold a public hearing after publishing legal notices in the newspaper.    December 14 was tentatively picked as the day for the public hearing.   The board will present the proposed water project to the residents with exact cost figure.  The residents can offer their opinions on whether or not the board should proceed with the water system rebuild.   This is rather unexpected as the board was not expecting to hold the public hearing until early 2012.  Letters will also be sent to the residents advising them of the date and location of the meeting.   The board will meet to stuff envelopes and mail the notices. 


New Business:  Given the unexpected early date of the public hearing for the water project any work on the deed covenants will be postponed.


The next meeting will be held December 7.  This meeting was adjourned at 7:22.
