Special Meeting May 14, 2018

A special Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting was convened at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 2018 in the Littleton Water and Light (LWL) conference room. Present were Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Peter Cooper, Commissioner Schuyler Sweet, Financial Director Cheryl Wilkins, and Superintendent Thomas Considine.

GENERAL/ OTHER BUSINESS:

Commissioner Ross stated that the purpose of this meeting was to further discuss the Town of Littleton’s request for funds ($154,885) to support the River District Revitalization construction project that was under funded.

Commissioner Ross asked Superintendent Considine to explain the result of the cash flow analysis that he submitted and suggested course of action.

Superintendent Considine summarized the procedure that was followed to reach a possible course of action that had the lower risk to benefits ratio.

Commissioner Cooper stated that he was concerned in regard to other request for funding such as the proposed underground line on Mill Street and the impact that rising oil and gas prices will have on the LWL budget.

Commissioner Sweet commented that most of the people wanting to bury the lines in this area do not realize that there are more than just electric that needs to be buried which complicates the entire project.

Bruce Haddlock asked what the condition was of the power line coming into town that historically has caused problems. Mr. Considine explained that National Grid replaced the line between Commerford Station and Pattenville in 2015 and rerouted the lines in some areas.

There were some additional general discussions relative to LWL subsidizing the River District Project following which Commissioner Cooper made a motion to grant the town’s request for funding in an amount not to exceed $154,885. Seconded by Commissioner Sweet.

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

Mr. Considine spoke with Andrew Dorsett (Town Manager) with regard to reconciling all project expenses and taking into account any remaining contingencies funds before determining LWL cost share to minimize the burden on LWL. Mr. Dorsett stated that he would attempt to minimize the impact to LWL in as much as they can.

ADJOURNMENT:

Commissioner Sweet made a motion to adjourn the meeting, seconded by
Commissioner Ross.

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

Meeting adjourned at 1:30 p.m.
