ASCUTNEY FIRE DISTRICT #2

prUDENTIAL cOMMITTEE

Minutes of Monday, July 14, 2014

 

Minutes for 6:00 PM, Monday, July 14, 2014 meeting of Ascutney Fire District #2 Prudential Committee in Martin Memorial Hall.

Present: Prudential Committee Members George Murray (Chair), William Southard, and Everett Bingham. Also present was Fire District Manager Jim Mullen.

  1. Call to Order.       Chair George Murray called the meeting came to order at 6:06 PM.
  1. Approval of Minutes of June 9, 2014. Everett Bingham made the motion, which was seconded by William Southard, to approve the Minutes of 6/9/14. The vote in favor was unanimous (3-0); the motion carried.

 

  1. Update on Final Design of      improvements to water system. Jim Mullen updated the Committee on this      topic. The design plans are at the      “90% Stage.” Engineer Joe Duncan      will shortly be submitting the plans to the ANR for their review and      approval. The project cannot be let      for bid without the ANR approval.
  1. Review of Policies on Cost to connect to water      system. Jim Mullen said that the      “Policy Regarding Water Service      Connections”      established by the Committee on 6/9/14 has worked well in the case of two      customers who are connecting to the Fire District for their water      supply. We have received checks      from both.
  1. Approve setting up a Reserve      Fund for major rehabilitation, maintenance, and upgrades to the water      system.      Jim Mullen said that we currently      have two funds, with dedicated checking accounts at Peoples Bank for each      fund: one for water system operational      expenses (e.g., wages for the Water Operator, chlorine, electricity, etc.)      and one for the specific capital improvement project that is being      financed by the Vermont Bond Bank to purchase and upgrade the Country      Estates Water System.

Jim suggested that pursuant to 24 VSA 3313(b), the Prudential Committee establish a third fund: a Reserve Fund to be used solely as a dedicated fund to finance major rehabilitation, major maintenance and costs of upgrading the water supply system, and for the accumulation of funds to be used to match federal funds pursuant to subsection 1624(d) of Title 10. Withdrawals, as authorized by the Prudential Committee, would be made only for purposes for which this fund has been established. The Treasurer would open a saving account with the Peoples Bank for this fund. The savings account would earn interest. Connection Fees would be deposited into this fund.

 

William Southard made the motion, which was seconded by Everett Bingham, to pass the following Resolution:

 

“Resolution to Establish a Reserve Fund

 

Pursuant to 24 VSA 3313(b), the Prudential Committee of Ascutney Fire District #2 hereby establishes a Reserve Fund to be used solely as a dedicated fund to finance major rehabilitation, major maintenance and costs of upgrading the water supply system, and for the accumulation of funds to be used to match federal funds pursuant to subsection 1624(d) of Title 10. Withdrawals, as authorized by the Prudential Committee, may be made only for purposes for which this fund has been established.”

 

The vote in favor was unanimous (3-0); the motion carried.

 

Everett Bingham made the motion, which was seconded by William Southard, to authorize the Treasurer as follows:

 

“To the Treasurer of Ascutney Fire District #2:

 

Pursuant to 24 VSA 3313(b), you are authorized to open a new banking account to be used solely as a dedicated fund to finance major rehabilitation, major maintenance and costs of upgrading the water supply system, and for the accumulation of funds to be used to match federal funds pursuant to subsection 1624(d) of Title 10. Withdrawals, as authorized by the Prudential Committee, may be made only for purposes for which this fund has been established.”

 

The vote in favor was unanimous (3-0); the motion carried.

  1. Review and approve payment      items and loans. Everett Bingham made the      motion, which was seconded by William Southard, to approve Warrant #44 for      $1,274.17 (for Water System Operations) and $20,184.38 (for Water System      Capital Improvements) = $21,458.55 total.       The vote in favor was unanimous (3-0); the motion carried.

 

  1. Review FY2014 Year-end financial report. The report was part of the monthly Warrant report as the FY2014 budget year ended on June 30, 2014.
  1. Any new business that can legally be discussed. It was noted that beginning in the current fiscal year (FY2015) that began on 7/1/14, the Town will billing the Fire District quarterly for administrative support (e.g., the Town Manager’s time plus use of office) at the rate of $3,000/year.
  1. Next meeting: The next meeting was set for 6:00 PM on Tuesday, 8/5/14, in Martin Memorial Hall.   [Note this is a change from the usual meeting day of the second Monday of each month due to vacations.]
