P.

Ferguson questioned the impact that such increases may have on the collection and treatment budget line.  P. Pastella reported that increases in the flow during the spring are expected and considered during budget development.  Fifty-six percent (56%) of the total budgeted revenues were received.  Expenses year-to-date were thirty-eight percent (38%) of the total budgeted.  Net cash of $210,641.21 remained at the end of the period.  The reserve account had a balance of $130,434.21.

Other Business

 

L. Carpenter discussed the Village’s conversion to LED interior and exterior lighting and the availability of programs to share the cost of the conversion.  L. Carpenter wondered if it would be advantageous to consider converting the lighting at the system pump houses. 

 

L. Carpenter also questioned maintenance at the pump houses.  P. Pastella responded that there had been a delay in receiving parts for a mower resulting in a delay in cutting the grass.  The mower has been repaired and maintenance is back on schedule.
