The minutes of the 9 October 2006 meeting were discussed. Nick Bennett made the motion that we approve the minutes of the 9 October 2006 meeting. Mike Deck seconded the motion, which was approved unanimously.
Mary Wagner had e-mailed the financial packet to the board (Balance Sheet, P&L ytd comparisons and P&L budget vs. actual). Also e-mailed were the usage comparisons. The final invoices for the Ponderosa extension were mailed to Mrs. Crawford and Mr. Wagner today. Bond Payment will occur next month. The resident on Long’s Peak Ct. that used water to extinguish the fire paid the bill for the water used. We are ahead of revenue on water used by the district for the year.
Frank had e-mailed the status report to the board prior to the meeting.
WINTERS/HAUKE STATUS REPORT - NOVEMBER 2006
The new door is to be stained and will then be ready for installation.
The final invoices have been sent and the final payment to the contractor has been made. The project is now complete.
Pump house Repairs
The door will be stained and then installed. The plastic shield will be put on the door for district notices.
Mark and the operators met with Terry and Travis (Electrical Engineer) at the pump house to assess the installation of the pump. Mark will obtain from Terry when we can expect the engineering report. Installation of the pump will be in a small enclosure and modifications may have to be done. Initial assessment is that the power supplied by Xcel will be sufficient to operate the pump.
The long range plan was discussed in detail. Mike had handouts which elucidated the funds necessary to accomplish the three remaining projects after the booster pump. The remaining projects are: the Empire-Spring loop; the Panorama-Spring loop and the Benchmark line. The booster pump will be installed in 2007 and the cost should be about $50K ($43K for the pump and installation and $7K for the engineering). Because water revenue was higher this year than budgeted, rates may not have to be adjusted for the upcoming year. Nick will look into the rates for next year.
