Regular Meeting Nov 15, 2021

The regularly scheduled business meeting of the Littleton Water and Light (LWL) Board of Commissioners (BOC) began at 1:00 p.m. on Monday,
November 15, 2021 in the LWL conference room. Present were Commissioner Peter Cooper, Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Linda MacNeil, Director of Finance Lori Hogan and Superintendent Thomas Considine.

MINUTES REVIEW:

The minutes of the November 1, 2021 regularly scheduled Commissioners meeting were reviewed. Commissioner Ross made a motion to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by Commissioner MacNeil.

The vote was in favor of the motion 3-0-0

GENERAL/OTHER BUSINESS:

1. Mrs. Hogan and Superintendent Considine reviewed, and a discussion ensued regarding the 2022 Operating and Maintenance budgets for both the water and electric divisions. Each revenue and expense line item were reviewed and where needed explanation was provided to the BOC.

Following a detail review of each division and comparing the anticipated expenditures to the projected revenues it is obvious that unless LWL implements a rate increase in 2022 that the proposed 2022 operating activities will result in a significant shortfall. The anticipated shortfall is the direct result of the geopolitical business environment that LWL is operating which have increased costs in some expense centers drastically. The rising cost associated with power supply and the transmission markets is having a devastating effect on electric supply as these two-expense line item represent more than 70% of LWL operating activities.

The suppressed/delay in the product supply chain has already impacted LWL ability to meet certain customer project timelines.

2. The 2021 major equipment purchases were reviewed with the BOC and the tally represents LWL expenditures to-date.

The 2022 proposed capital improvement projects and equipment plan will be presented and discussed at the BOC regular business meeting on December 6th.

3. Superintendent Considine requested that the meeting be moved to nonpublic session to discuss a matter involving workforce/employee matters (RSA 91-A:3, II (a &b)).

RSA 91-A:3, Paragraph II, section (a) and (b). Seconded by Commissioner Ross.
