Minutes of Annual Meeting — 1980

The annual meeting of the Jericho—Underhill Water District was held in the Jeri—Hill Senior Center on Rte. 15 in Underhill Flats, VT., on Wednesday, October 7, 1980 at 8:00 p.m. The meeting was called to order by Alan Morse, President. Minutes of the previous meeting were read and accepted. The financial reports for the year were distributed to those present.

ACTION ON ARTICLE 1 OF THE WARNING:

On motion duly made and seconded, Harold Sargent was elected moderator for one year.

ACTION ON ARTICLE 2:

On motion duly made and seconded, Gerry Ackley was elected clerk for one year.

ACTION ON ARTICLE 3:

Alan Morse reported for the officers as follows: They had the property at the well field surveyed, mapped and recorded. They initiated changes to the water rates. A metal detector was purchased to locate curb stops and valves. Monthly meetings as well as special meetings were held to transact Water District business. The brown winter of 1979 did much damage to the well field due to freezing. Therefore, the Water District purchased baled hay to insulate the wells from the cold. Monthly samples of District water were sent to the Health Dept. for water quality checks and they all passed. The District participated in the state TCE tests for vinyl—lined pipes. The District became a corporate member of the Vermont Water Works Association. Our yearly note on the bond of the District was paid. Future projects are: a. replace water line with water main on Poker Hill; b. abandon old water line on west side of Rt. 15 on the north end of town and connect services directly to the main; c.

Paint the storage tank inside and out; d. replace the pumping system and wells with a gravel—packed well with submersible pump; 3. Replace the water line above the tank to prevent yearly freezing — this would include a requirement for blasting. Mr. Morse ended his report by thanking the District's auditors, Doug Keith, Peg Sargent and Nancy Craig; Clerk, Gerry Ackley; meter reader, Roger Koniuto; and superintendent, Leon Dumas for their respective services.

The meeting was then adjourned as there was no other business.
