MEETING MINUTES OF THE
LAKE WYNONAH MUNICIPAL AUTHORITY
A regular meeting of the Board of The Lake Wynonah Municipal Authority was held on May 15, 2001 at the Wayne Township Municipal Building, Wayne Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. Board members present at the meeting were Jim Ridderhoff, Walter Jaros and Tom Nagle. Also in attendance were Jim Goodman (LWMA Attorney), Dave Bright (LWMA Engineer), and Mike Stewart (AmericanAnglian).
The meeting was called to order by Jim Ridderhoff at 6:05 pm.
The minutes for March 2001 were reviewed and accepted by motion of Walter Jaros, seconded by Tom Nagle, carried by all.
The Treasurer's reports for March and April 2001 were reviewed and accepted by motion of Walter Jaros, seconded by Tom Nagle, carried by all.
Mike Stewart reviewed his written report relating to managerial matters (submitted to the Board prior to the meeting) which addressed water and sewage operations. The written report is attached to the office copy of these minutes. He also told the Board that water production is at approximately 320,000 gallons a day but that he expected it to rise to 340,000 gallons a day when the Summer residents start arriving. The plant personnel are continuing with leak detection. Mike said that another set of leak detection classes are scheduled to be held in about a month and that he is planning for all plant personnel to attend along with the LWMA's leak detection equipment. He also noted that hydrant flushing started on May 15th. Also, Mike told the Board that the mower was repaired locally for $101 rather than the few hundred it would have cost to be repaired at Sears.
Dave Bright said he had nothing in particular to report.
Jim Goodman brought the Board up to date with the water rates hearing that was held on April 27, 2001. He said that he was able to introduce all the testimony that he'd planned to, and that final briefs were due the day after Memorial Day. Ron Derenzo and Jen Hoy testified. Walter asked what the final briefs will contain and Jim Goodman explained that it is essentially a summary of the testimony heard and documents submitted with particular items stressed again. After that, the judge will make a decision. There is no time frame for Judge Stine to make his decision.
Mike talked to the Board about a rise in requests for minor repairs to driveways incurred by the truck while performing a pump. Also, the number of people asking that the pump be performed from the street rather than the driveway is increasing. Mike explained that pumping from the street requires much more time and puts a lot of stress on the pump truck due to trying to pump uphill. Driveway accessibility to holding and septic tanks was discussed and it was decided that Tom would prepare policies.
There being no further business, Walter Jaros motioned for adjournment, Tom Nagle seconded the motion, carried by all.
The meeting was adjourned by Jim Ridderhoff at 7:20 p.m.
Meeting minutes were taken, prepared and submitted by Jennifer Hoy.
