Reviewed proposed Water Department budget.  It was agreed that any surplus in the budget would be moved to the water equipment reserve – a new truck will be needed in 2018.

Motion was made by Trustee Fitch to allow the Water Department to purchase additional controls for two well pump motors at a cost of $2,700.  Motion was seconded by Trustee Hultenius and passed unanimously.

Reviewed proposed Sewer Budget with Delaware Engineering.  Overall there is a decrease in the budget, the surplus of which will be used to make upgrades to the plant.
