BSBIA – Meeting held at Fair Have Fire Department. – June 6th 2015
Election of Officers- Tom Agnello President. Hal Berardi Vice President, Diane Banks, Secretary. Toni Santoferra, Treasurer.
Announced that this is his last year as president and to think about replacement. Please forward nominations to him at firstname.lastname@example.org
I attendance Kim Parks and Dave Doyle- Gave sewer project update- very pleased with progress and contractor- To date 17,000 feet of pipes laid- they are ahead of schedule and the project may be completed the third week in August- Kim stressed it was very important to sign easements and that there was no good reason not to hook up to sewer system. Contractors need to decommission the septic systems and we could start using the sewer system- Electric boxes on homes and cottages have an alarm system which lets you know if there is a malfunction. To date 72 applications for hook up, that is about half. Die test will be done before hook up.
Doug Clemons and Dave Willard are out in the field it you should need to contact them regarding any questions you may have regarding the sewer project.
We need to advertise on our WEB site a list of contractors that are able to hook up the home owners- electricians, septic and sewer installers
Chris Lee- New regulations regarding opening channel – the DEC and the Army Corps of Engineers now states you cannot put the stone back into the bay until July, this will cost a lot more money to open and to put the stone back into the water-this leaves very little money for maintence digs- A suggestion on moving the channel opening was brought up- Chris Lee said he would have to get new permits and said he would look into it for next year. Meeting Adjourned.
Diane Banks, Sec.
