Keedysville Water Commission

February 6, 2012

The monthly meeting of the Keedysville Water Commission was called to order at 8:15 pm, with the following members present: Commission Chairman Barry Levey, Commission Members Matt Hull, Richard Walton, Victoria Gudeman and Tim Robertson and Town Administrator Rick Bishop.

Minutes for January 3, 2012 were read and approved.

General Fund Report was $118,095.81.

Mr. Levey noted the walkthroughs and leaks found in various places relating to the Main St. water line replacement. He sought approval for bringing in Fluid Conservation Technologies to perform leak testing. The commission agreed.

He noted the difficulty in getting the punch lists from the three contractors completed so that the project could be closed out and the interim financing could be paid off. He expressed concern about the amount of retainage for each contract and the response that could be expected from the contractors if the retainage were a low amount.

Mr. Robertson noted that the pressure reducing valves from the vaults in Cannon Ridge and Rockingham still needed to be sold.

Meeting adjourned at 8:17 p.m.
