Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye. Mr. Phillip presented to the Board three phases of projects, that would in-tell 10 blocks of replacing clay sewer mains and lines. We also have Theda Boydston, Town Manager present.  The clay lines were built seventy-eighty years ago and have created infiltration and inflow into the sewer and waste water treatment facility during heavy rains. We have been pro-active on going after grants. We received a grant in 2003 that helped replace 50% of our clay lines. We still are actively looking for grants for our town. We have received several REAP and CDBG grants for our town, that we have been able to rehab a lagoon cell, rip rap/dyke repair and add fencing around the lagoon. Some of our manholes were replaced back in 2003. We are not currently under a consent order, DEQ has reported we have infiltration issues. We have received ARPA funding through our town, in the amount of $220,000.00, in which we should receive the second part of that in October. We are utilizing the majority of fund to help with the rehab project, along with adding $20,000.00 of PWA saving funds, as well.  We would like to use the counties portion granted to help with the $300,000.00 total project. We would like to thank the Board for giving the towns this opportunity to do something within our community, that we probably would not be able to do within our lifetime. Warner asked how long their 2003 project lasted with rehab lines, Phillip stated six months, we expect the whole project to last for one year. The counties portion to be completed in 3-4 months, starting the project around July 01. We are also planning on doing the overall project in three phases.
