CML District 1 meeting will be held in Sedgwick on Thursday, May 20, 2010 with pre-meeting at 4:30 p.m. and social hour beginning at 6 p.m. with dinner following at 7 pm.

Golemboski reported that the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority had revised the Loan Repayment Schedule for the Town’s DWRF Direct Loan by applying the remaining un-drawn project funds totaling $191,801.18 to the principal which reduces the remaining principal thereafter.  The principal reduction lowers subsequent principal payments from $16,584.95 biannually to $13,033.08 or a savings of $7.44 per month per tap.  However, because the Water Enterprise Fund is required to remain in compliance with the parity requirement of the loan Golemboski suggested that we wait for the completed audit to see if the savings can be passed onto the tap owners.  Since we have a full years data on the operational costs of both water systems we will have more proven data to base our rate structure on and we have increased summer electrical costs from Xcel and a new rate structure from Morgan County Quality Water District that needs to be included in the figures before revising the monthly rates.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:15 p.m.
