December 12, 2012


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 November meeting.  A minor correction was made to differentiate the various leaks.

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


Income Statement:  Income was minus $4326 due to leak repair expenses.  Jim motioned to accept the statement with a 2nd by Carol.


Water Report:  The latest Lark Lane leak was worked on by Ed and Brandon.  A new valve was installed near 8605 Lark to help isolate the location.  Ed noted that the main line was so brittle that a spade broke it while digging.  The board debated how best to attack this new leak.  Three alternatives are available. 

  1. Dig up and replace about 500 feet of main line.
  2. Insert a sleeve in the main.
  3. Isolate leak location with test holes


Option 1 was ruled out because of the expense and the low balance in the district's account.   Option 2 was debated with Evan in favor but the other trustees declined mostly because the sleeve could further restrict water flow on an already small diameter (3 inch) main line.  Option 3 was selected because of the relative low cost and the likelihood that just a few holes would be required to find the leak.  Brandon should be able to resume work on the leak by December 19.  


Water loss was running at 72 percent.


 Jim motioned to accept the water report with a 2nd by Carol.



Old Business: The district will consolidate its accounts at Great Western back.  Randy and Jim will oversee that process.

Jim will ask legal counsel about transferring WHCA assets to the WHSD.    


New Business: A resident brought up a concern about brush piles in the subdivision.  The trustees decided to take no action as there has not been enough snow cover this season to permit safe burning of the piles.


The next trustees meeting will be held  January 9, 2013.

 This meeting was adjourned at 7:42 pm.
