Old Business:

Miox pump was not installed. The contractor will purchase and install the new pump. The original cost for the new pump is $400.00.

Barry Braman researched fire hydrant lock options with the Fire Department. The Fire Department cannot make recommendations on which brands or styles to install. After researching the different options for fire hydrant locks, Barry recommends the expense vs. the savings of replacing stolen or broken locks is not worth it. The savings to AMWC is minimal.

Garry Everson stated the infrastructure of AMWC needs repair and maintenance. The various needs will be determined and prioritized for actions to be pursued.

AMWC has received two bids for the Grant Meter Replacements. Tim Pendleton reviewed the bids. Tim recommends the bid with the higher cost, as the contractor will perform most of the work in changing to the new meters. Ultimately, the savings is more to AMWC as the grant will cover the cost.

Status of the well repair is tabled for a future meeting.

Adjournment to Executive Session was necessary as there weren’t any Shareholders in attendance.

No adjournment to General Session as no Shareholders in attendance.

Karen Kayser moved to adjourn the meeting. The motion was seconded by Barry Braman. The motion passed by a vote of 7-0-0. The meeting adjourned at 8:37 p.m.
