WATER REPORT

Joe reported that the Mag-meter has been installed and is working well so far. Once it has been determined that this meter will function properly long-term then a second meter will be purchased for the other stream.
He also reported that the software has been installed for the conductivity meters provided by the Triple Divide Coalition but stated that in-stream meters were sent rather than in-pipe meters. He has concerns with these during winter conditions in the stream. Triple Divide will be contacted regarding exchanging the meters.
Information on Re-pipe was presented for repairs to the waterline that had leaks earlier this year. After some discussion, it was decided that the board would like more information. Joe will contact Coudersport’s water operator to find out what their experience is with the re-pipe and the secretary will contact a representative to come speak with the board.
The secretary presented letters from DEP commending Galeton for the high level of maintenance of the dams at the Wetmore. This letter was sent as a result of an inspection done by DEP earlier this year.

SEWER REPORT

Tony informed the board that he and Tom will attend a meeting in Williamsport regarding possible PENNVEST funding for sewer upgrades. He is also meeting later in the month with Jennifer Rossman and Bill Siegle regarding the CDBG funding for upgrades at the sewer plant stating that the Income Survey has been completed and application for funding has been made.

OLD BUSINESS

The board had a lengthy discussion regarding the delinquent accounts, penalties and “dead” properties. Some board members wish to make changes in the way these accounts are billed. No decisions were made at this time.
BJ asked for a workshop to be scheduled to begin discussion on the budget. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, August 23rd at 5:00 p.m. in the Borough office.
Tony asked that the September meeting be re-scheduled for Tuesday, September 12th. All members agreed. The secretary will advertise for the workshop and meeting change.

NEW BUSINESS

The secretary informed the board of an Outreach program orchestrated by the Potter County Planning Commission and presented a ballot from Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association to vote for a Director and Assistant Director.
ADJOURN

Joe motioned to adjourn the meeting at 8:30 p.m. BJ seconded the motion. All voted aye and the motion carried. The meeting was adjourned until the next regular meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Borough office.
