Mr. Levey gave updates on the Water Infrastructure Upgrades. ---He noted that the water tower was erected and the painting would begin on July 11. ---He noted that Ferri Contracting, the pump station contractor and USDA were in discussions about payment for stored material because the prefab pump station was complete but was not yet on site. ---He noted that C. William Hetzer, the contractor replacing the water line had moved to the second phase of the replacement. He also noted several issues & outages that have occurred due to the replacement.

He noted the meeting with Austin Abrams, the chairman of the regional water board, about possibly amending the agreement with the Town of Boonsboro for the maintenance of the water infrastructure.

Mr. Bishop advised the Commission of a request by Rick Painter, the operator of the water treatment plant, to install the two new pumps into the slots that are currently being used instead of the two extra slots as the plans call for because of the lack of access to the valves and gauges behind the pumps. The Commission declined the request due to the cost.

Meeting adjourned at 8:10p.m.
