7.  New  Business.
            A. John Kernian was present to discuss concerns with the tank project on Poker Hill Road

The new schedule which Chagnon's has presented, would have the project going through June of 2004. The signed contracts we have with them now says that it will be completed by February 14, 2004.

The impact this would have on the Water District would be an increase in cost from Phelps of $13,000.00 more than was budgeted for the project. According to John, Chagnon's may be responsible to pay part of this cost

Phelps feel they need to be there to oversee Chagnon's work do to some prior errors by the contractor. So Phelps recommends that we send a letter to Chagnon about the over run of time and the impact all around. Phelps also feel it would be best if it could be resolved without any legal process.

Phelps suggest a meeting with the contractor . They are also willing to write a letter to the contractor addressing theses concerns. The  board agreed this would be good then Chagnon would know what our concerns are.

Peter also informed everyone that he would like to talk to Todd about this .

The amendments for the borings on the Poker Hill project were approved and signed.

A motion was made to accept the invoice from Chagnon's and it was approved for payment.

8.  Bills to review & approve for payment. Bills were reviewed and approved.  

9. Next Meeting Date:  Next regular meeting February 28, 2004 at 9:00 a.m.

10.  Adjournment.  The meeting was adjourned at 10:13 p.m.
