The hydrant is now missing from the spot where it ended up after the accident, Marc contacted the police about it being gone. Marc will discuss work with the Jericho road foreman. He will also increase chlorine prior to the work, and would like the board’s approval to schedule the work before school start.

4. Customer concerns/comments

     A. The Hudson’s and the towns of Jericho and Underhill attended the meeting to discuss the property lines between the district and the Hudson’s so they could clear up some tax issues. Brad Holden suggested the best way to resolve the problem would be to do an agreement deed with the Hudson’s. It would state that we give up the rights to any land in Jericho and they give up the right to any land in Underhill.  Brad offered to set up the language for a lawyer to create this deed. Joe made a motion for the district to contact our lawyer to settle this with Brad’s recommendation. Then the district would discuss with the Hudson’s splitting the expenses, Peter would meet with them to do this and contact Vince. The motion was seconded by Dick and so approved.

5. Repairs and Maintenance.

A.    When Marc replaced the meter at Santors he noticed that it did not read correctly Dwight had written the same # again so he put in a call to Dwight who did not ever respond to the message he left. Marc corrected the error and Jane sent an updated bill to them. Marc also noticed that the reading at the Sawmill was less than 6 months ago so he will verify it.
