1. Review & Approval of Previous Minutes. The October 6, 1997 minutes were reviewed and unanimously approved.

2. Review & Approval of Financial Statements. The October 1997 financial statements were reviewed and unanimously accepted. It was suggested that a comment regarding the interest on the Rural Development Administration bond payment be added to the report.

  2. b.  Other. None.

4. Customer concerns.

Mary Martelle of First Step reported that, at times, her water tastes like garlic. Harold will follow-up and take a sample if it is found that selenium or another printing related metal is a known garlic-producing taste element.

5. Old Business.

  1. a.  Sign replacement at gate. Ken had an 18"x24" metal sign made for $50.00. It reads WATER SUPPLY RECHARGE AREA. PLEASE DON'T POLLUTE. Harold will mount it.
  2. b.  Water service to D. Villeneuve & flushing hydrant. Two days were spent installing in 90' of 3" PVC flushing pipe near D. Villeneuve's business on Route 15 in order to facilitate a water service to the Villeneuve property
  3. c.  Action on K. Mitchell request to breach berm at Well Site No. 1. A motion was made and unanimously carried to breach the berm on the old pumphouse property approximately twenty feet from the topsoil pile. This will be done in the early summer of 1998. The material removed will be used to build a 15"-18" berm to protect the pumphouse. The Board acted on a request from Kenneth Mitchell and does not guarantee that breaching the berm will solve his field water problem.

6. New Business.

  1. Contracted services for excavation work. Jim Durbrow has been contacted but has not returned our call. It was suggested that we have two contractors available so that we always have coverage. Several names were suggested.
