DIRECTORS ABSENT: MAX MAHAFFEY, T.D. YOUNG

OTHERS PRESENT: RICHARD RAMIREZ, DISTRICT MANAGER


The regular Board Of Directors monthly meeting was called to order at 4:02 PM, with Mr. R.S. Harvill, Vice President presiding.


FIRST ORDER: COMMENTS FROM PUBLIC

None


SECOND ORDER: CONSIDER/ACCEPT CERTIFICATION OF DEPT SERVOICE COLLECTION RATE FOR THE 2005-2006 BUDGET YEAR

The board had received Mr. Moore's letter about "enclosed rate" but enclosure with new appraised value & debt dollars due in 2005/2006 was not enclosed as indicated with letter. Mr. Ramirez will followup with Mr. Moore's office immediately to get necessary figures.


THIRD OREDER: REVIEW ADMINISTRATION REPORTS.

Mr. Ramirez believes the unbilled 2,660,310 gallons of water on reports was easily accounted for with break in 4" main at River Plantation Drive & Roanoak, Damaged 3" main at Interstate 45, along with leaking 2" valve 669 ZStonewall Jackson. Breaks occuring in very old concrete mains. Mr. Ramirez also noted that our sytem was running at 95% capacity with extreme dry conditions at various intervals over past couple months due to dry weather and apparent lawn irrigation. Problem is tank capacity on well # 2. It was reccomended an approximately 200,000 gallon tank be installed at well # 3 along with emergency generator and booster pump. Mr. Smith motioned that Mr. Ramirez contact AEI Engineering for study on cost of Engineer's report necessary to move project forwad. Mr. Dillon seconded and motion passed 3-0.


FOURTH ORDER: DISCUSS ANY NEW OR UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Mr. Ramirez reported the project to install 8" sleeve across Interstate 45 during highway construction ongoing was a dead issue due to unexpected State DOT opposition.


There being no further business, Mr. Dillon made a motion to adjourn the meeting with Mr. Harvill seconding the motion, which passed unanimously.


Mr. R.S. Harvill declared the meeting adjourned at 5:11PM.
