Old Business –
PPSSD – Colin Marcusen called in from SEH to this meeting. He reviewed the Memorandum Dated October 31, 2013 from SEH. Some issues discussed were; the proposal from Moosehorn Resort to the Township regarding using part of their land to run lines to two other parties in the district. The Township Board has decided to not go with this proposal and will go another route to reach these two members of the district. All members of the district will have to pay capitol cost even if they don’t connect right away. The system has to be designed for the maximum flow right from the start. Metering was discussed and Colin will check further on this matter as to how and when this should be done.
VNP Clean Waters JPB – This information is now on the SEH web site.
