Regular Meeting Aug 17, 2015

The regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting began at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 17, 2015 in the Littleton Water and Light Department (LWL) conference room. Present were Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Eddy Moore (via telephone), Commissioner Perry Goodell, Financial Services Director Cheryl Wilkins and Superintendent Thomas Considine.

MINUTES REVIEW:

The minutes of the August 3, 2015 regularly scheduled Commissioners meeting were reviewed. Commissioner Moore made a motion to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by Commissioner Goodell.

The vote was in favor of the motion 3-0-0.

FINANCIAL DIRECTORS REPORT:

Mrs. Wilkins reviewed the financial statements for the month ended June 2015 with the Commissioners. Several discrepancies as compared to budget were discussed and explained by Mrs. Wilkins.

SUPERINTENDENT/ GENERAL MANAGERS REPORT:

1. Superintendent Considine stated that he had attended a meeting with the Littleton Energy Conservation Committee (LECC) to review and discuss their proposed plan to repurpose the old landfill with a new passive solar (PV) array. The meeting was to discuss this proposal with the LECC consultant via conference call although as a result of a miscommunication they never joined the meeting.

2. Progress is being made with regard to replacing the water main on Maple Street between School Street and Oak Hill Avenue. Letters were sent to customers that will be impacted most by the project. A September 1, 2015 start date is projected.

3. Discussion is ongoing between the department and Defresne Group Engineering with regard to the development of a water system master plan. Superintendent Considine stated that in his opinion a thorough review and analysis of the transmission main/ supply system is the most critical.

He believes that the departmentís field personnel have a good understanding and work knowledge of the capabilities of the distribution system and where the restrictions are. Most of the transmission main is over one hundred (100) years old although generally in good operating condition having a replacement plan ready and on the shelf ready to implement as needed would be beneficial.

GENERAL BUSINESS:

Commissioner Ross asked if the Town of Littletonís sanitary contracts have negatively impacted the department since the initial broken water main at the corner of Knight Avenue and Maple Street.

The contractor on High Street appears more suited for this type of work than the contractor working on Knight Avenue. There has been only one (1) incident on High Street due to a broken service corporation as opposed to several on Knight Avenue, some involved tearing down an electrical service line. All the incidents on Knight Avenue have been preventable in the departmentís opinion and the contractor has been charged for the repairs.

ADJOURNMENT:

Commissioner Goodell made a motion to adjourn the meeting, seconded by
Commissioner Moore.

The vote was in favor of the motion 3-0-0.

Meeting adjourned at 1:40 p.m.

The regularly scheduled Commissionerís meeting is held twice monthly on the first and third Monday, at 1:00 p.m., in the Departmentís conference room.
