4.      The Board discussed the Tarman Springs Well Drilling Bids. There were four bids received at the last meeting. The lowest bidders were Negley’s and Funks. Negley’s was the lowest bid. The Board had our water department review the bids and even after reviewing Negley’s was the lowest. A Sanders/Bumbaugh motion accepted the bid from Negley’s Well Drilling. Motion carried unanimously. We are now waiting on Negley’s estimator before we can begin drilling. Wally Koster is going for surgery on October 10th so we need to get a drilling date.

In the agreement with PSL, they receive a portion of the tap fee. The Board is not sure how that will work if do not get tap fees. Solicitor Lisko will review agreement.
