      Another drought customer (Richard Weir) sent in $20 for water they took from the public access point during the drought this summer.

Roger Koniuto reported that he has been in contact with the Intuit Company regarding the capabilities of our Quickbooks program.  He is awaiting further information, but a representative of the company suggested that we upgrade our system.  A motion was made and unanimously carried to upgrade at a cost of up to $100.00.
    D. Electric bill -  Peter.  Peter expressed his concerns about being able to control the demand we have for electricity when both pumps come on simultaneously.  A discussion of the possibility of a back-up power supply for the tank sensor was discussed.  Peter and Marc will meet to further investigate this problem.  
    E. Disposition of old computer.  The clerk has not a a chance to further pursue this due to the schools' holiday vacation.  She will follow up on this.
