Regular Meeting Sep 5, 2017

The regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting began at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 in the Littleton Water and Light (LWL) conference room. Present were Commissioner Perry Goodell, Commissioner Peter Cooper, Commissioner Ralph Ross and Superintendent Thomas Considine.


The minutes of the August 21, 2017 regularly scheduled Commissioners meeting were reviewed. Commissioner Ross made a motion to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by Commissioner Cooper.

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

Commissioner Cooper stated that before any work was completed on the underground electric circuits in the Mill Street area that additional discussion would most likely be required to develop a thorough set of plans and cost estimate.


1. LWL personnel assisted by Dodge Contracting began work to reroute the 8 inch water main in front of the TJ Maxx plaza. A two (2) to three (3) week construction schedule is anticipated. EJP is scheduled to be on site to install two (2) water live taps on Thursday that are critical to maintaining service to the businesses in the affected area.

2. Hydrogeologists from Geosphere Environmental physically located two (2) proposed wellhead sites with regard to the feasibility water supply study on the Lafayette Avenue property. It is expected that the access road will be completed sometime in October and drilling at these sites will be scheduled for some time thereafter.


1. The BOC briefly reviewed the letter to the Town of Lisbon in regard to LWL supporting their efforts to develop a business/industrial park on Mt. Eustis Road abutting LWL infrastructure in which Commission Goodell signed on behalf of the BOC.

2. Mr. Considine stated that he had received a telephone call from Bill Thomas of the NHDES Bureau of Dam Restoration and Repair in regard to the abandon dam on the South Branch of the Gale River. Mr. Thomas made the initial inquiry into whether or not LWL had any future plans to restore and place the South Branch back in-service. His group would like to visit the site and then come to a BOC meeting to discuss their findings and proposed plan going forward.

The BOC did not object to entering into a discussion with NHDES.

3. The BOC reviewed the proposed bids quantities as suggested by Daymark Energy with regard to the pending wholesale power supply purchase.

Commissioner Ross stated and the other Commissioners agreed that LWL should not be hedged greater than 85% on the shoulder months (April and October) and 90% for all other months. In regard to the term of the purchase/deal it will depend on the bids prices received. If the price offered is three (3) to four (4) cents then LWL should inquire about a longer contract term.

Mr. Considine stated that he will work out the detail with Daymark and update the BOC at a later meeting.


Commissioner Ross made a motion to adjourn the meeting, seconded by
Commissioner Cooper.

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

Meeting adjourned at 2:10 p.m.

The regularly scheduled Commissionerís meeting is held twice monthly on the first and third Monday, at 1:00 p.m., in the Departmentís conference room.
