James Melledy reported for Water Commissioner, Brett Laureys, that repairs are necessary for a failed well motor/pump. The approximate cost is $15,304.00

The Water Main Project will cost approximately $150,000.00 for phase 1. There have been 3 water main breaks within less than a year in the area that is in desperate need of replacement.

Emergency well repairs have interrupted the plan to begin engineering of phase 1 of the Water Main Project and will possibly delay the replacement time frame in order to allow for additional budgeting. There is a possibility of additional water main breaks during this time. Repairs for phase 1 are estimated to begin up to 2 years from now.


Nicki Sullivan moved that the meeting be adjourned. The motion was seconded by Chris Shifley. Unanimously approved. The meeting was adjourned at 8:13 p.m.
