Water and Project Report:Ed reported that our water losses are up to 32%, he is not sure why, but will keep monitoring the situation. We may have a leak somewhere.Ed received a quote from Midco Diving to clean all 4 tanks in the amount of $2400.Ed would like the board to wait on a decision until he receives a comparable quote that he is waiting on in Black Hawk from Liquid Engineering.Even though the scope of the project is different, it will give him a better idea on any difference in prices.We can then make a decision on getting the additional quote from Liquid Engineering on our project.The board will wait to make a decision until that quote comes back.


Edís software provider is setting up our software for the administrative part of his contract with WHSD.He wanted to set this up according to when we want the bills paid by residents.Billing will go out on the 15th, with payments due from users between the 1st and 5th of each month.Late fees will apply after the 5th of each month and remain the same.Ed is concerned about the condition of the shed and roof at the midlevel tanks.He would like these added to the project that is being bid out.Ed will call AE2S to have this added along with a tank gauge and 2 more flushing hydrants...the hydrant on Tanager turns hard and the one on Lark has a leak.


Some concerns have been made about places in the backfill and asphalt that were repaired by Mainline and are now sinking and settling.The board will take complaints and issues, pass them on to Ed and he will submit a list to AE2S.Randy made a motion to approve the water and project report, seconded by Tyler and approved 4-0.
