Woodland Hills Sanitary District

July 2017 Minutes


The July meeting of the Woodland Hills Sanitary District was called to order at 6:33PM. In attendance were Randy Alexander Evan Hutchings, Carol Crozman, Beth Haivala, Bobby Sadler, Ed Striebel and Lois Lund.


Secretary’s Report: The June minutes were reviewed and there were no changes to be made. Bobby made a motion to approve the minutes, seconded by Randy and the minutes were approved by a 5-0 vote.


Income Report: Total income for June was $8270 which includes the special loan assessments.  The savings account for the district's road account is considered dormant and will be subject to bank fees in the future.  Since the savings account pays pennies of interest each quarter Lois suggested moving the funds to the road checking account.  Randy made a motion to make the move, Carol seconded the motion and it was approved by a 5-0 vote. 


Lois requested that the web site mention that water payments are due on the first of each month and are considered late if received after the 5th of each month.  Residents who are planning to be away for an extended time can pay in advance and a credit balance will be carried. 


Evan made a motion to approve the income report, seconded by Randy and the report was approved with a 5-0 vote.


Water Report: Ed told the board that the water loss rate for June was 3.3 percent.  Ed also noted that the system is using about double the winter time amount of water, 40,000 gallons a day compared to 20,000 gallons.   The well house pump is running about 7 hours a day.  The board members discussed a watering schedule but since the system it not close to capacity there's no urgent need to restrict outdoor watering.  

Evan made a motion to approve the water report, seconded by Randy and the board pass the motion 5-0.


Road Report: There was a tax deposit made into the roads account in the amount of $4610.00.


Old Business:  The 2017 budget was discussed and Ed suggested the amount allocated for water testing be increased.  Evan will make the change and the budget will be adopted.


New Business:  The web site mention of deed covenants was discussed and the board decided to leave the covenants on the site.  Although the board is not involved in enforcement activity each resident can file an action with the Meade County court system. 


The board accepted the nominating petitions of new members Garry Colasardo and Jim Stewart and current member Beth Haivala.   Randy Alexander and  Carol Crozman are leaving the board.   The new board will decide officer roles at the August meeting.


Resident Comments:  None


Board Comments:  Jim Stewart offered to create email addresses using the whills.org domain for any of the board members.


The meeting was adjourned at 7:19PM


Respectfully submitted,

Jim Stewart
