Regular Meeting Dec 21, 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, December 18, 2023 in the LWL conference room. Present were Commissioner Linda MacNeil, Commissioner Ralph Ross, Commissioner Peter Cooper, Director of Finance Lori Hogan and Superintendent Thomas Considine.


The minutes of the December 4, 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


1. The profit and loss (P/L) statements for the month ended October 2023 were distributed to the BOC for their review and comment.

2. Ratepayers in LWL’s first two (2) billing cycles have received the Power Supply rebate that totals almost $98,000. The largest of LWL’s billing cycles are to follow.


Mr. Considine stated that he filmed a short public relations video message with Notchnet last week that should air sometime this week on GoLittleon’s Facebook and website and then they plan to release it to other social media platforms.


1. LWL personnel have been busy today with storm-related activities due to heavy rain and winds. The higher elevations have taken the brunt of the storm trouble regarding power restoration activities and the headwater at the Gale River has taken a pounding due to very high-water levels and snow melt. At the time of this meeting crews were still in power restoration mode.

2. On Friday, December 15, 2023 LWL personnel responded to a water leak in the vicinity of 210 W. Main Street. Crews discovered a two (2) cubic yard rock/boulder sitting just above a crack in the water main. The boulder was removed with the assistance of the Littleton DPW front end loader and taken off-site, repairs made, and service restored.


1. The NH Department of Energy is making plans to distribute the proceeds from the sixty-second (62) Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) Cap and Trade auction to LWL for disbursement in the amount of about $81,523. Once LWL receives payment from the NHDOE eligible LWL electric customers will receive a rebate (credit) applied to their LWL statement.

2. LWL recently received a Letter of Agency from the Grafton County Commissioners (GCC) regarding the Middle Mile Network project and the contractor that they retained. eX2 Technology, LLC will be coordinating the project for the GCC. The goal of the project is to bring high speed fiber optic broadband to each municipal office in Grafton County. The project is federally funded and is separate from the NH Broadband Initiative developed by the NH Governors office. eX2 personnel have reached out to LWL and have made inquiries as to the needed documentation for developing an attachment agreement between LWL and Grafton County.

3. The highlights of the union negotiations were discussed with the BOC. Progress is being made and the negotiations are nearing completion. A list for the BOC to review will be presented so that the impact can be reviewed and discussed before moving toward acceptance.


There being no further business to come before the board 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 2:32 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.
