CITIZENS PARTICIPATION
N/A

WATER REPORT
Joe provided the board with some information on the most recent water leak stating that it was in the transmission line leading to town from the water plant. He stated that given the age of the pipe, he’s assuming there are weak areas in the line and recommends replacement soon. The board asked him to gather information for the next meeting regarding cost of materials, length of pipe needed, etc. so that they can determine the best course of action.

He also reported that the mag meter for the Wetmore should be delivered this week for installation.

The board reviewed a quote from Martz Technologies to integrate the mag meters into the SCADA system. Decision was tabled until the meter’s functionality could be determined.

SEWER REPORT
Discussion regarding information needed from ICEA Solutions resulted in the board asking the solicitor to send a letter requesting submission of the necessary files.

The board reviewed two quotes from Martz Technologies regarding repairs/maintenance/upgrades to the Sewer plant and pump stations. Decision on those quotes were tabled as the board wished to speak more with the plant operator as well as gather information on cost effectiveness.

OLD BUSINESS
There was a brief discussion regarding the placement of water meters at the park in an effort to better track usage there.

NEW BUSINESS
Tony informed the board of a message he received regarding issues the Authority may have had with specific agencies. After some discussion, the board concluded that there were no issues or concerns.

Mike informed that board that he had recently acquired “archived” files from a former Authority solicitor’s office that he feels may prove to be useful. He also brought up concerns regarding the ability to read customer’s meters due to dogs or other interference.

The secretary presented a request from a customer to consider reducing the interest and/or late fees associated with his account due to the amount of money he has already invested in Galeton. Regretfully, the board is unable to allow any reduction as they are mandated by the Municipal Authorities Act to bill all customers equally and fairly. It is the board’s opinion that it would be unfair to all other customers to reduce any fees.

ADJOURN
BJ motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:30 p.m. Rob seconded the motion. All voted aye and the motion carried. The meeting was adjourned until the next regular meeting scheduled for Wednesday, July 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Borough office.
