METRO DISTRICT TANK PROJECT UPDATE:
Jack and Marsha gave a brief update on the progress of the new tank project to date. Bids were received, and the bid taken was from EAI for the amount of $219,800. It was $26,000 less than the other bid received. A loan from DOLA has been engaged in for $100,000 at 5% interest.
A Request for Proposals has been advertised for a comprehensive study on the water system and its needs. There were numerous contractors in attendance at the Walk-Thru.
The HOA Board asked if there is a Back up generator for the heater in the pump house. Due to freeze ups it would be an inexpensive fix to have a small generator to keep the pump house from suffering freeze ups causing water outages.
A request to remove numerous trees that are dead at the address of 41 Cassidy Drive has been received by the Board. Julie Shultz stated that she would love to have the wood for firewood. The Board will get in touch with the Owners and see what can be done to remove the dead trees.
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 7:00 PM.
