Water and Sewer Contracts with City:  Jean turned the signed contracts in to city office.

Water and Sewer Operator: Jean contacted Billie Jo NB we discussed payroll for Kyle Rogge.  NB is checking with lawyer to see if the position has to be advertised so for now he will work temporary.  Kyle has agreed to the same pay for now.  He currently does more for NB in duties than he does for us.  We will need to discuss pay again later.  Need to check with Jade Boggs on how our insurance will cover because he will be using a personal vehicle and we subcontract him.


District water and sewer rates need to be adjusted and notify users.  Jean and Laurie will work on the raise.
