Ray Smith – Water Operator was available for this meeting and Marsha Moreland – Administrator was present. The meeting was called to order at 5:35 PM.
The minutes of March 4, 2009 were approved as submitted.
Ray Smith reported that there is a 1% deviation in the gallons pumped versus sold. He will be meeting with Timberline Controls for suggestions on the District’s control upgrades. There are about 10 broken meters that he will be replacing in the next couple of months. The meters will be replaced with new meters not rebuilt ones. Ray will continue to monitor the text wells for the water level information.
There was a lengthy discussion on how the filling of the new well for chlorination and testing will be done. It takes about 10.28 days to fill the tank, according to Ray, with normal water usage occurring as well. The tank will be filled twice during that time and drained one time. Ray will give more thought on just how the testing of the tank will transpire.
Bids received were from: ENGINEERING AMERICA, INC. (EAI WEST) @ $ 219,800

A motion was made, moved and passed to accept the bid from EAI WEST for the tank at $219,800.
