September 11, 1989 Minutes

The monthly meeting of the Jericho-Underhill Water District was held on September 11, 1989 in the basement of the United Church of Underhill. President David Damkot called the meeting to order at 7:05 P.M. Those present were Dave, trustees Harold Sargent and Doug Keith, clerk Peg Sargent and Marc Maheux, operator. Dave opened the meeting with the request that we try to limit our discussions as much as possible in order to facilitate a 9:00 P.M. or best possible meeting adjournment.

The minutes of the last regular meeting, August 7, 1989, and the minutes of the Emergency meeting of August 22, 1989 were reviewed and accepted. In reviewing the minutes it was noted that the hydrant on Steam Mill Road has not been repaired.

Also that a state fund check in the amount of $58,910.45 for the project has been received.

Marc reported that Mary Bushnell's house and barn hook-ups have been completed. He indicated he had checked out the project's work being done on the site at the Bushnell area and also the Poker Hill area at least once and often a couple times a day. The new 8" D.I. water pipe is across the river on Poker Hill Rd. Marc also advised that we will need to purchase chemicals again.

Dave presented a proposal via Al Mosey of Webster-Martin from Blow & Cote to extend the pipes further up Poker Hill at this time at a cost of $32.00 per foot. Dave will check with Stan Wilbur regarding a 'change order' of the present contract rather than sign a new contract, to facilitate the extension. Harold will check with the town of Underhill regarding the right-of-way footage and get this information to Doug who will contact the Olsen household and also the F. Goss/Dyke household regarding the right-of-way and the placing of the pipe as it relates to their properties. Doug made a motion to do the project extension, to put in a valve and an additional 200 ft. up Poker Hill Rd. for an estimated additional cost of $7,040.00 under the same terms as Contract #3 under progress. The motion was carried unanimously. This will facilitate connection to the line that serves Poker Hill thus eliminating the old Roaring Brook crossing. The new hook-up for Patty Gray's (former Dumas house) will be held over until spring, in consideration of time and finances. The contractor will, however, install a curb stop under the agreed work and price.

Dave reported that the inflated cost of $15,000 from the $11,000 estimate that had been given us for the work to be done by CVPS was caused by a 39% federal tax. Dave will talk with Doug Zorzi and may pursue our tax exempt status through the Public Service Board. Dave had been in contact with Mr. Hurley of CVPS and discovered we can get on their two rate service. The board hopes to follow through with this possibility at a future date in a meeting with Mr. Hurley.

Harold presented a proposal from Ken Mitchell of $900.00 for some work that needs to be done on the road to the pump house. The road gets muddy in the spring and tracks onto the road area near his house and makes for a dusty situation when the season dries out. After discussion, it was determined this would have to be postponed as the District is financially unable to do this work at this time.

It was noted that the beaver dam that existed on the Mills and District's property has been removed by the contractor (at our request) down at the project site.

The date of October 9, 1989 at 7:30 P.M. was set for the District's annual meeting.

The bills were reviewed and signed.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:01 P.M.

Respectfully Submitted:  Evelyn O. Sargent
