Regular Meeting Apr 15, 2019

The regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting began at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15, 2019 in the Littleton Water and Light (LWL) conference room. Present were Commissioner Peter Cooper, Commissioner Schuyler Sweet, Financial Director Cheryl Wilkins, and Superintendent Thomas Considine.

MINUTES REVIEW:

The minutes of the April 1, 2019 regularly scheduled Commissioners meeting were reviewed. Commissioner Sweet made a motion to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by Commissioner Cooper.

The vote was in favor of the motion 2-0-0.

CUSTOMER & PUBLIC CONCERNS:

Mr. Considine stated that there has been a lot of discussion as a new Commissioner was not appointed by the Board of Selectmen to date. In light of this development Mr. Ralph Ross agreed to submit his written intent for consideration to remain on the LWL Board to the select board.


SUPERINTENDENT/ GENERAL MANAGERS REPORT:

1. A draft copy of the 2019 year-end financial audit was recently made available to LWL for review. The final report will be released following LWL managements review and the completion of the Managementís Discussion and Analysis. The MD&A is a supplement to the annual financial audit and is required under GASB-64.

2. The situation that involved Ms. Judy Wilson suddenly resigning from her position as a Customer Service Representative (CSR) after only three (3) weeks was briefly discussed with the BOC. Though the circumstances were somewhat puzzling and unique the timing ended up being advantageous for LWL. Another person that also ranked very high during the interviews was contacted and was available to start work immediately. Ms. Shara James accepted LWLís offer of employment and reported to work on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 as the new CSR.


GENERAL/ OTHER BUSINESS:

1. The 2018 favors list was discussed with the BOC. The list tallyís all service work completed by LWL throughout the year that is not generally considered a system operational or maintenance necessity. Typically the customer would be held financially responsible for the costs incurred. The total charges for the year ended 2018 that LWL incurred in support to the community was about $61,000.

The BOC agreed that maintaining a list of service work completed for other governmental and community agencies was important and shows LWL commitment to the community and its mission.

2. The LWL front office is planning to transition to summer office hours beginning on Monday, June 3, 2019 and ending on Friday, August 30, 2019. During this time the front office hours will open in the morning at 6:30 and close in the afternoon at 3:00. Notice will be posted in the lobby for the typical walk-ins during the month of May.
