Meeting Minutes

October 12, 2004



Lowell called the meeting to order at 6:35 p.m.


Roll call:  Lowell Hite – Present; Bev Reese – Present; Laura Clark – Present; Aaron Reedy, Clerk – Present


Laura made a motion to approve the September 2004 meeting minutes.  Bev second. All yea.


Bev made a motion to approve the September 2004 Financial statement.  Laura second. All yea.


Deanna Yost was present to discuss her water/sewer bill.  She said the new meter still doesn’t work on the house.  She said she had also filled her hot tub, and has not seen the credit for that.  Lowell says he has been checking the meter on the house and on the ground, and they have been working.  He said the meters have read the same for the last two months.  Next month will be the third month.  Then a credit can be calculated.  Deanna asked if someone will let her know about it.  Lowell said WCSD will have to handle the sewer portion and the BOPA will look at the water portion.  Lowell said we should know something by the end of this month.


Lowell brought up the Kelly Taber issue.  Bev said she should pay the full amount due and the issue should be between her and her landlord.  Lowell said the sewer portion has already been credited.  Lowell said it’s still leaking – never been fixed.  Board agreed that Michelle will call Kelly and tell her what they decided.


Lowell mentioned that Baltimore is looking into raising their rates.  If they do, we’ll have to evaluate our rates.


Bev made a motion to adjourn.   Laura second.  All yea.  The time is 7:25 p.m.




Respectfully Submitted,



Aaron L. Reedy, Clerk
