ANNOUNCEMENTS

Mr. Wendelborn updated Trustees on a recent Lift Station overflow in the Sanitary department, along with the timeline that the overflow was under control in about 20 minutes from first alert, and that the problem was fully repaired in just a few hours; the situation required calling emergency contractors to aid. The cause appeared to be grease in the lines that built up in the lift station.

Ms. Alexander updated Trustees to her upcoming vacation from August 17th through August 23rd. President DeLuka asked that agenda packets be as soon as possible upon her return to the office on August 24th, and that all Trustees review the content of previously distributed financial reports and confirm to him which reports they wish to see or do not wish to see in future packets.

Trustees Marquardt and Stockhausen announced that they may not be able to attend the August COW meeting.

ADJOURNMENT

Motion by Marquardt to adjourn; seconded by Stangel.
Motion prevailed by a voice vote of 6-0.
