The meeting began at 6:34pm and was held at the Lark Lane meeting hall.  Attending were Jim Stewart, Evan Hutchings, Carol Crozman, Randy Alexander, Lois Lund and Ed Striebel.


Secretary's Report:  Jim read the minutes from the September meeting.  Corrections were noted for the estimated cost of the revamped water project and a couple of typos.

Jim made a motion to accept the minutes with a 2nd by Randy.


Income Statement:  Income was on the minus side after refunding an unused water right.  Otherwise income would have been plus $4,624.   Randy motioned to accept the statement with a 2nd by Evan.


Water Report:  Water losses were 37 percent.   All quiet on the water system.


Old Business:  Sue Jones attended the meeting to find out what the board had decided about her late fee.  Jim could not find any mention in the water policy of an paid-in-advance account being assessed a late fee for a missing meter reading.  Sue also explained that she was not notified of the late fee via a postcard.  Evan made a motion to clarify the water policy that residents must turn in a payment and a meter reading by the 5th of the month or a late fee will be assessed unless the account is paid in advance and the house is vacant (assuming no water usage).  Jim seconded the motion and the board voted 4-0 to adopt that policy.   The late fee was paid.


New Business: The application for the revamped water project was submitted September 26.


The next board meeting will be held November 14 at 6:30pm. 

This meeting was adjourned at 7:25pm.
