Peter Mitchell called the meeting to order at 7:00 PM

1. Special Meeting to review Tank Painting Options. Alan Huizenga of Phelps Engineering was present to review there findings on a new tank.

2. Proposal Contents.
Approximately 1/4 to 1/2 acre of land needed for new tank.
Glass fused tank recommended over a steel tank, glass lasts about 50  years and does not need to be painted only flushed out for cleaning.
With a second tank we would have better fire flow.
Additional cost to customer approx. 13.75 a quarter
Beneficial if the power should go out for a long period, we would have an extra 100,000 gallons of water available.
Operational flexibility, there would always be backup when one tank needed to be worked on.
3 reasons Alan suggest as to why we should do this
  1. Better Fire Protection
  2. Better Operation redundancy
  3. More flexibility and less liability.
Phelps would be willing to hold for a month so we will have more time to review there findings.

3. Discussion Items For The Board.
Marc to look for specs on the paint that is in the tank to see if it is lead free.
Figure out what the deal would be with Mike Forsberg about the land.
Decide if we want to go with a public informational meeting.
Prepare an informational letter to send to our customers.
Possibility of meeting with Fairfax to visit there new glass tank.

4. Adjournment. Peter adjourned the meeting at 9:40 p.m.

 Respectfully submitted,

Jane Maheux
