Keedysville Water Commission

March 7, 2011

The monthly meeting of the Keedysville Water Commission was called to order at 8:10pm, with the following members present: Commission Chairman Barry Levey, Commission Members Matt Hull and Richard Walton and Town Administrator Rick Bishop.

Minutes for February 7, 2011 were read and approved.

General Fund Report was: $89,115.52.

Mr. Levey noted the line break repairs on Mt. Vernon Lane. He also noted that loss rates are back to normal.

Mr. Levey discussed progress on all three contracts of the water infrastructure upgrades. He said all three projects are moving forward. Storage of materials by the contractor for the water line replacement were discussed noting the need to not use the parking spaces in the lot by the rail bed. Gina Ellis asked how long the waterline replacement would take. Mr. Levey noted that while the contractor has 365 days from March 1 for substantial completion, he hoped that it might take as little as six months. He also noted that the unknown variables involved with replacing an old line make such a forecast difficult.

Meeting adjourned at 8:15p.m.
