Paul Gottfredsen was in attendance asking for a new water meter.  He owns property on the north end of town.  He is hooked onto Josh Sudweeks meter.  For the time, he will purchase his own meter at his property and still run water through Josh’s meter.  They would figure out the difference and pay for the water used based on usage.  He is going to buy his own meter and work things out with Josh.

The mayor called on those not on the agenda. There were none.

Michael Naser was in attendance to discuss the new water project update.  The placement of the new well was discussed.  The new well will be placed west of the canal and north of the cemetery.  The Forest Service has been contacted for the redevelopment of the Cottonwood Springs waterline.  The BLM will have to be worked with for the water line that crosses their ground.

The SLFRF funds were discussed next.  There is about $27,500 leftover from these funds.  The Board discussed different options for these funds. One option for this was cement at the new town park.  Another option would be lights for the new town building.  One bid has been submitted for the new lights.  Another bid will be needed.
