President Harold Sargent called the meeting to order at 7:02 p.m.

1. Review & Approval of Previous Minutes. The minutes were reviewed and approved with the date of the meeting corrected to read January 9,1995.

2. Review & Approval of Financial Statement. The statement was reviewed and approved. It was noted that the repair reimbursement line showed the final payment on the John Stearns/Elaine Druke repair account.

3. Operator's Report.(Given by Harold Sargent in the absence of Marc Maheux.)

  1. a.  Insurance coverage. This was taken care of as reported in the January 9, 1995 minutes.
  2. b.  Water use. We are using an average of 38,000 gallons per day.
  3. c.  It was noted that a meter spacer was left at the fifth house being built by Warren Palmer on or about 1/20/95.
  4. d.  The snow plowing to the control building is being done but the board felt Mr. Hill should give it a higher priority.

4. Customer Concerns.

a. Jim Jorschick called the clerk to inquire about his bill. Since his meter was not operable at the time of meter reading, the clerk sent him an estimated bill of $60.25. He requested that that be changed to a two-person flat rate bill of $50.00 as he had been billed on three previous occasions when his meter was inoperable. The board moved to grant his request for this time ONLY.

5. Old Business.

  1. Wellhead report status. The map is at the state. Harold has requested six complete copies of the report and maps. A motion was made and approved for the treasurer to release payment upon receipt of these maps and reports. This is the last document needed for completion of the construction project.
  2. SOC sampling update. A waiver has been granted and one SOC sampling only is necessary. No lab in this state is able to do the four category test. A lab in Connecticut can do this test and has sent a price list. An SOC sampling must be done this quarter.
  3. c.  BRMS Hydrant - Kathy. Kathy reported that she had spoken with Peter Bestenbostel, business manager of the Chittenden East School District. He said that the hydrant was not draining because a drain valve had not been opened. He said the contractor had been contacted and had taken care of the problem. Harold will follow up with Wright and Morrissey, the contractor.
  4. d.  Other old business. None


6. New Business.

  1. a.  Insurance rebate. The clerk reported that we have received a rebate of $837.00 from our insurance agent, Pomerleau. Due to their general liability audit they discovered that our payroll is only $1800. annually and not the estimated $12,000. Therefore, they have refunded $837. for the previous year and will be sending a refund for the current year, as well.
  2. b.     The clerk reported that she has both keys to the safe deposit-box at the Merchants Bank and felt that someone else should hold one of them.`The board voted to have Peter Mitchell, Assistant Clerk; hold the second key.

7. Other business.

a. No freeze-ups have been reported to date. To prevent a freeze-up, the parsonage of the United Church of Underhill is now running water. No others are authorized at this time. Any such requests should be refered to either Harold Sargent or Marc Maheux.

8. Bills to review approve for payment. The bills were reviewed and approved for payment.

9. Adjournment. The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.

Respectfully submitted
