FINANCIALS:

The G/L Report is the closest thing to a Balance Sheet that TRIO offers.  The G/L Report is the General Ledger Report and shows all the transactions that occur within the system.  A totals for the Fund Balance should be a line item along with the designated reserve accounts.

 

The GASB's new financial reporting method is to list all tax supported accounts to be separated from accounts that fees pay for, such as the Ferry, Golf, and Marina.  The tax supported accounts are listed under General and the non-tax supported accounts are listed under Enterprise.

 

Signed the Check Warrants.

 

OLD BUSINESS:

Water System Upgrade - There was a meeting last week to discuss and resolve some of the issues.  The Electrical Inspector came on Thursday, June 16, 2005, the Electrical Contractor has some violations that have to be corrected.  There are seven valves that close by turning counter clockwise, these will be fixed in the fall after the water system is shut down by replacing the valve stems and the bonnets. 

 

Received a bill for the Instrumentation in the amount of $18, 225.00 and $2,715.00 for the Pressure Transducer.  Need to know the total amount of monies that have been spent on the upgrade.

 

 

Willis Property - Documents for interim financing have been signed and returned to Key bank.  Attorney doing the title search found a problem with the original subdivision, need a letter from the Town of Raymond stating this parcel is not a subdivision.  The c losing will occur when the Town of Frye Island receives this letter from the Town of Raymond and Paul Willis returns to town.

 

 

SAD 6 - The school budget passed for the total amount, but failed to fund it fully because Article 4 was rejected. 

 

Met with Marshall Tinkle on June 17, 2005, Marshall is reviewing all information that was given to him by Wayne.

 

 

Tennis Court - Vermont Tennis Courts hopes to have the repairs completed by July 4, 2005.  The rainy weather has Vermont Tennis behind schedule.

 

 

Haul Out Facility - Met with Wayne Duffet, PE, and did a peer review of the facility.  Yesterday was the worst day for operating, The carriage had to pushed all the way into the water while empty and had to be pushed with the backhoe with the ferry on the carriage.

 

Wayne Duffet said the rollers are improper, system should be a pull down/pull up system, more bents are needed, more supports are needed, and the system's design is not rugged enough.

 

Wayne will return next week with a winch expert to check if the existing winch can be used for the pull/down pull/up system.

 

 

NEW BUSINESS:

Vic Solomini - an advertisement for a Public Hearing was never posted, Vic's issue will be put on the next Selectmen's Warrant as a Public Hearing.
