Bollards:  At the last meeting there was a discussion on the placement of the bollards at the Victory Plant, but no decision was made on how to proceed. Mayor Sullivan explained that we should ask Attorney Dixon to write a letter in response to Laberge’s letter.  There was a discussion on not being in agreement with their recent letter on who’s responsible for the bollards.  Mayor Sullivan explained the history of the bollards.

Commissioner Lloyd made a motion to have Attorney Dixon write a letter to Laberge and let them know we are not in agreement with their letter and that we will be hiring someone to put in the bollards in the appropriate places and we will be taking this cost off their last bill, this motion was seconded by Commissioner Kahnle, all ayes, motion passed.


Startup request:  There was a letter requesting the water board to provide permission to Shultz to place the victory plant in service to allow a full commissioning of the plant.  DOH has offered permission to put the plant in service.  The request allows the plant to be placed in service understanding additional work may be outstanding.  There also was an email received from Laberge confirming that the Certificate of substantial completion will not be issued until demonstration, training and remaining performance sampling is satisfactorily completed and a final walk through with Water board representative is conducted.  This is yet to be scheduled.

DOH said it’s ok to test November 5th, 2008.  Commissioner Lloyd made a motion to allow Shultz to put the victory water system on line on November 5 for testing, demonstration and training, this motion was seconded by Commissioner Kahnle, all ayes, motion passed.


Industrial Use Permit. There was a discussion that Attorney Dixon talked with the Attorney from Schuylerville and all looks ok and they will provide to village, then to the water board by the first part of next week.
