Bob Bleakley asked that his problem of driveway sinking be brought up. It had been agreed at a previous monthly meeting to take care of his driveway but it is still sinking. There is no water leakage on his property at this time.

David Damkot reported on water exploration saying that Webster-Martin is preparing a final report and once that is received, informational meetings will be held to inform the public of their findings and make recommendations.

Bob Bleakley asked what the condition of the overall system is? David answered that historically the system has had many leaks and that Palmer Lane and Poker Hill are troubled areas. David said that the main line is in decent shape, that it is the service lines that give the District problems. The Board has agreed to recommend to:

  1. Develop well site
  2. More storage capacity
  3. Replace old pipe on Palmer Lane and Poker Hill
  4. Make loops on dead ends for fire protection

Ken Mitchell asked about the boundary lines of the Water District and whether the legal voters know whether they are legal voters or not. He would like to see that these voters be notified that they belong in the District.

Kate Mitchell suggested that a map be hung along with the warning when a bond issue comes up.

A motion was made and accepted to direct the Board to post maps that show the boundaries of the District.

It was established that the legal voters were those who reside in and own a home within the District.

Ken Mitchell proposed that a check list be established before a bond issue comes before the voters.

A motion was made and seconded that the Board be directed to nre-pare a list of legal voters based on the map of the District as of 11/3/86.

Bill Frank as what the plans are for allocating the water if more water becomes available? He feels this is something that should be addressed.

Sue Kordish said that people with existing homes within the District who have been waiting because of the moratorium be taken into consideration first.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:35 p.m.
