DIRECTOR of FINANCE and HUMAN RESOURCES REPORT:
Mrs. Hogan stated that she filed an insurance claim and spoke with the NH Public Risk Management Exchange (Primex) about the lawsuit filed by the town of Littleton against the Board of Commissioners. Primex will review the lawsuit filed with the court and check against the available litigation coverages for LWL officers and board members.
SUPERINTENDENT/ GENERAL MANAGERS REPORT:
The Town of Littleton provided LWL written authorization that they will take over the billing and energize about two (2) dozen NHDOT installed streetlights along the on and off ramps to I-93. NHDOT discontinued service to selected I-93 on/off ramp lights between exit 41 Ė 44 in 2012 in conjunction with their statewide light discontinuance and energy audit project.
LWL will begin its evaluation of the towns request. Though physically the lights will most likely not present a problem to energize they are installed and wired in a manner that all consumption goes through a single billing meter. The billing may pose challenges to ensure that the proper account charges are applied correctly to the proper bill payer.
Commissioner Sweet asked for a motion which was provided by Commissioner Cooper that the meeting enter nonpublic session in accordance with RSA 91-A:3, II(e), seconded by Commissioner Ross.
