The meeting began at 6:38pm and was held at the Lark Lane meeting hall.  Attending were Jim Stewart, Coral Crozman, Evan Hutchings, Randy Alexander, Ed Striebel and Lois Lund. 


Secretary's Report:  Jim read the minutes from the February meeting.  No corrections were needed. 

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


Income Statement:  Net income was  $3075.  Jim motioned to accept the statement with a 2nd by Evan.


Water Report:  Water loss for January was 50 percent.   The board agreed with Ed's suggestion to hire Brandon Powles to begin another leak hunt and repair.


Old Business: The trustees stuffed and mailed letters to the residents advising them of the March 20 public hearing to be held at the Black Hawk fire department building.  An agenda for the public hearing was discussed.


New Business: There was discussion of how best to pay for the proposed water project.  Should the loan be paid with a surcharge, or an increase in water rates or can the WHSD issue a mill levy on property taxes?  Dale Hansen, legal counsel for WHSD, will be at the public hearing and we can ask him then.

(Update from March 20 public meeting:  The WHSD cannot levy taxes so the loan will be paid by a surcharge on the water bills)


The next trustees meeting will be held April 10, 2013.

 This meeting was adjourned at 7:30 pm.
