Report of Town Manager:
Richard Roedner reviewed his July report with the Board and suggested that a mooring policy/ordinance be discussed later.
Board reviewed financial report for month of July.
Consider Approval of Personnel Policy—This was tabled.
Russ Martin reviewed the Pine Tree Report on the Water System. Some of the topics that were discussed were extending the tank upward and additional 4 rings or approximately 32 feet. This could result in more pressure and less use of pumps to pump water through out the Island. Some other suggestions were to extend the intake pipeline further into the lake and laying the pipeline deeper in the water to avoid algae. He also recommended that you should have enough water for one day’s supply on hand.
He also mentioned the loss of water (15000 gallons/day) through the pressure relief valves.
James Kuiken requested comments from Board members as soon as possible.
