COMMENTS FROM THE FLOOR

Gerry Fella explained his tap-in situation for a new dwelling.  Todd Schaus had put five in and all but one was sold.  They were all paid for.  He then passed out copies of paperwork showing two that were paid for and the deed shows one, but paid for two existing water meters.  S. Leibering asked if Fella was sure tap-ins were paid for and asked if the meters were paid for; Luthy advised he was sure the meters were paid for when the tap-in was paid.  Luthy stated that a $25.00 inspection fee is required by the Town of Santa Claus and that the paperwork Fella had was sufficient.  Kamp moved to have the board approve the tap-in of water service, acknowledging the tap-in fee had been paid to Santa LaHill so it would apply to the Town of Santa Claus as a valid tap-in fee.  Fowler seconded the motion.

Ayes:  S. Leibering, Fowler, Kamp

Nays:  None

Motion carried.

UTILITIES SUPERINTENDENT

Luthy advised no tank inspection quotes had been received and went on to review the solicitations; believes the prevailing wage, which at the current numbers won’t renew until January 1st, might be an issue in no one quoting.  He will re-solicit.

Ayes:  S. Leibering, Fowler, Kamp
