August 8, 2012


The meeting began at 6:32pm and was held at the Lark Lane meeting hall.  Attending were Jim Stewart, Evan Hutchings, Carol Crozman, Dick Helmstetter and Lois Lund.


Secretary's Report:  Jim read the minutes from the July meeting.  Dick asked for a correction as the board did indeed approve a $1.50 base rate increase rather than tabling it.   Also Dick had the official vote tally from the June 26 election and it differed from the results that have been previously posted. 


3 year terms:  Evan Hutchings and Randy Alexander

2 year terms:  Carol Crozman and Jim Stewart

1 year term:  Dick Helmstetter


With those revisions Dick made a motion to accept the July minutes with a 2nd by Carol.


Income Statement:  Income was on the plus side for the month at $3,336.   Evan Hutchings made a motion to close out the Dain Rauscher account and move the districts funds to Great Western Savings to save the annual $140 fee charged by Dain.  The motioned was seconded and passed unanimously. 


The road district has a balance of $34,175.66.  Those funds will be maintained in an account separate from the sanitary district.  Because the road district is being dissolved into the sanitary district Dick will be discussing the funding options with the Meade county auditor. 


 Dick motioned to accept the income report with a 2nd by Jim.


Water Report:  Water losses were 31 percent. 


Old Business:  The sanitary district was officially created July 16.  A motion was made and carried to have an accountant audit the books of the community association prior to transferring the funds to the sanitary district.  Lois will call on an accountant that has previously audited the books, Randy Baker, CPA. 


Assignments were made for the annual picnic on August 26.  


New Business:  The board decided to hold a water project-only meeting on August 15 to decide how to proceed with a water project. 


The next regular board meeting will be held September 12 at 6:30pm. 

This meeting was adjourned at 7:36pm.
