Regular Meeting Nov 16, 2015

The regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting began at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, November 16, 2015 in the Littleton Water and Light Department (LWL) conference room. Present were Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Eddy Moore, Commissioner Perry Goodell, Financial Services Director Cheryl Wilkins and Superintendent Thomas Considine.

MINUTES REVIEW:

The minutes of the November 2, 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.

CUSTOMER & PUBLIC CONCERNS:

The BOC considered a written request (received November 12, 2015) to abate excessive water consumption recorded at 175 Saranac Street for June through July 2015 in regard to the customerís commercial rental property.

Superintendent Considine noted that this property was a commercial rental and inquired whether or not that made a difference with regard to processing the request as a typical abatement (most have been residential).

Following some discussing the BOC granted the customerís request for abatement as requested for the June & July 2015 billing period. The BOC also noted that the billing status (residential/ commercial) of the property did not make a difference as long as the deficiency was corrected promptly and the invoice was paid previously, which this customer had complied with both.


FINANCIAL DIRECTORS REPORT:

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

SUPERINTENDENT/ GENERAL MANAGERS REPORT:

1. Following the November 2, 2015 BOC meeting Stiles Fuel was contacted in regard to replacing the shop boiler system. The shop boiler is more than thirty (30) years old (estimate) and has been the subject of continual maintenance over the years. Stiles revised their proposal and are expected to begin the replacement process within the next several weeks.

2. Following some discussion the BOC authorized the annual Christmas Luncheon for employees. The office is typically closed for the afternoon and food is ordered from local vendors. Having the luncheon in house has proven to be a cost effective alternative to going to a typical restaurant and employees appear satisfied with this function.

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 1:45 p.m.
