Regular Meeting Jul 3, 2023

The regularly scheduled business meeting of the Littleton Water and Light (LWL) Board of Commissioners (BOC) began at 1:00 p.m. on Monday,
July 3, 2023 in the LWL conference room. Present were Commissioner Linda MacNeil, Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Peter Cooper, and Superintendent Thomas Considine.


The minutes of the June 19, 2023 regularly scheduled Commissioners meeting were reviewed. Commissioner Cooper made a motion to accept the minutes as presented, seconded by Commissioner Ross.

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


Superintendent Considine introduced Mrs. Heather Brown to the BOC as LWL newest employee. Heather’s first day of work was June 30, 2023. She will be working in the front office doing customer service-related tasks.

The BOC welcomed Mrs. Brown to the LWL team and hopes that she will find employment a positive and satisfying experience.


1. Primex Risk Management provided LWL supervisors with a training workshop about “Harassment in the Workplace” on Thursday, June 28, 2023. Both Federal and State laws were discussed and reviewed regarding discrimination in the workplace being unlawful. LWL Code of Conduct was discussed about how to recognize a hostile workplace environment and what employers need to be aware of to protect others from bullying, inappropriate language, subversive and other toxic/pervasive behavior that does not belong in the workforce.

When LWL is back to full staffing levels, Primex will conduct another Harassment Workshop tailored to nonsupervisory employees regarding courtesy and respecting others to foster a positive workplace environment.

2. LWL is working with Smart Energy of New England (SENE), a locally based solar installer, on the feasibility of installing a 1 MW PV array on the old landfill or other suitable property. The company that SENE was initially working with does not install arrays on landfills. The cost of installation is about $1.7/watt. Available credits and other federal/state incentives may make ownership by LWL economical feasible.


1. The auditors report for the year ended 2022 regarding the financial activities of LWL was discussed by the LWL.

Following some discussion Commissioner Cooper made a motion to accept the report as presented, seconded by Commissioner Ross.

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

2. LWL has asked Daymark Energy to review pricing on the power supply marketplace and whether it would be advantageous to procure the remainder of 2024 and portions of 2025 and 2026 open power resources. This would help stabilize about 70 percent of LWL operating and maintenance budgets going forward and could potentially lead to discussions about how LWL may be able to reduce electric rates.


There being no further business to come before the board Commissioner Cooper made a motion to adjourn the meeting, seconded by Commissioner Ross.

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

The meeting adjourned at 1:52 p.m.

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