District Manager Update:
In general, all is going well within the District, Tim Gibbons has not reported any issues this past month. John Fitzgerald sent in the water usage for the month of July for the Board’s review. They were concerned by the amount of use and would like to keep going forward with monitoring the levels through the fall.
Old and New Business:
Potable Diver’s Issue –No more word from the Potable Diver’s on this topic at this point.
Spring Clean Out – Tim has requested that the flow meter be ordered, approximately $1500. The flowmeter would allow the Board to track and monitor what is used and justify the purchase. Tim believes there is water in the pipe, he can hear it, but he can not get any water to come out. He is going to call All Drain Services to come in and clean the pipe out further.
Update from CDC – Tammy Lake updated the Board that HACH still has not responded on getting the junction box operational. Tammy will continue to work on getting this completed. John and Tammy have the flowmeter hooked up so HACH can come handle the calibration. Aslan was on vacation the past week so Tammy will reach out to them soon to keep them finalizing this project.
Easements Needed – Walter McGill still has not responded to Melinda Sherman with the legal description on Lot 1 which is needed for writing the new easement.
Water Rights – Melinda has sent a new ruling to the Board about how to monitor the flows to retain/obtain water rights. There are two water rights on the Spring in discussion, they are owned by Ed Ryan and the Timbers Village HOA.
FH 16 – David Fisher, the owner of the lot this sits on, would like to backfill the entire space where this currently sits. David suggests extending this FH vertically, but the Board argues that it is so old it needs updating.
Wildfire Mitigation – Mr. Lomas reached out to get a second bid on removing the dead trees near the WWTF. The experts stated we needed to wait until all the red needles have fallen off the dead trees before removing them.
District Records –Ms. Lightfoot researched using Dropbox for all District records going forward. She stated that one user for $10 a month would be sufficient, and she will manage this for the time being.
With business concluded and upon motion duly and unanimously approved, it was
RESOLVED to adjourn the regular meeting the Timbers Water & Sanitation District Board of Directors
at 7:00 pm, this 8th day of August 2022.
Respectfully submitted, Kasey O’Halloran
District Manager, Timbers Water and Sanitation District
