VII. Visitors
        Attorney Wayne Gerlt introduced himself to the Board.  He presented the Board with a request for permission to connect 3 conforming lots on Griffin Rd to the South Windsor Sewer System.  Mr. Tyler explained that these lots aren’t within the East Windsor Sewer Service Area and the regulations state that sewer line extensions must be within the SSA.  Mr. Leslie suggested running this by Bill Hogan of the CT DEP.  Attorney Purnhagen agreed with this suggestion.  Mr. Anderson stated that he wouldn’t want to create a burden for the Town. A Developer’s Agreement would be needed.  Attorney Gerlt felt that South Windsor would maintain the lines within South Windsor but was unsure about the extension into East Windsor.  Attorney Purnhagen felt that an Inter-town Agreement would be needed.  Mr. Barton asked what about the WPCA’s opinion on our SSA.  Mr. Anderson said more facts would need to be gathered before making a decision.  Mr. Leslie asked if the WPCA would want to consider putting in a new small subdivision near a sewer system outside of the SSA.  Mr. Barton questioned whether we should let South Windsor determine our SSA.  Mr. Tyler questioned where this would end, would more properties want to extend the sewer line to connect.  This item will be on next month’s agenda and Attorney Gerlt will talk to South Windsor about what would be on the agreement.  Attorney Gerlt thanked the Board and left the meeting at this time.

        Mr. Leslie reported that he had a call from Jim Giorgio of Newberry Village.  He has just bought another parcel with 3 approved building lots; he has asked to extend the sewer line up through the lots.  The Board would like to see plans with a gravity sewer line in the public right of way along Winkler Rd.  

        Mr. Leslie had a phone call from Lesa Kuhn’s who owns the Opera House in Broad Brook and 14 Emily Rd.  She thinks she is being over charged.  Mr. Leslie has gone out to look at the properties and checked the Assessor’s records.  He has asked Ms. Kuhn’s to provide data and to come to tonight’s meeting.  He has not received any information from her.

        VIII. Legal
FCC Regulations
        Mr. Leslie reported that the Journal Inquirer had been contacted about the public hearing notice; they provided a public hearing notice, but it was not what we were looking for.  Attorney Purnhagen explained that the FCC Regulation would need to be republished.  He will put something together and bring in a draft for approval.  Mr. Anderson would like to have some time to look it over.

Pump Station Agreement – SJK Properties, Quarry Meadows
        There was nothing to report.

Rya Corporation
        There was nothing to report.
               
                IX. Action on Facility Connection Charges

Motion: To impose the Facility Connection Charges as published for Southern Auto Sales, Inc. 161 South Main Street, East Lot Car Wash through Mansions at Canyon Ridge LLC, 10 Canyon Ridge Drive.
        Tyler/Barton
        Passed unanimously

        X. Unfinished Business
Newberry Rd Assessments
                        Mr. Leslie went over the assessments for Newberry Rd.  The Board will need to adopt the policy and publish the assessments.  Mr. Tyler said they would need to review how this will affect the Prospect Hill Rd Assessments before adopting the policy.
        
        Prospect Hill Rd Assessments
        These will follow the Newberry Road Assessments.

Modification of Sewer Service Area
Mr. Leslie reported that he had received P&Z’s comments and their questions/objections have been included in this draft.  Mr. Tyler felt that the SSA should follow property lines not zone lines, properties should either be in or out of the SSA not half in and half out.  The subcommittee will meet one more time.  Mr. Anderson suggested Tuesday, July 1 at 10 a.m.
        XI. New Business
        Superintendent’s Report
        Mr. Leslie explained that they needed to make year-end transfers.  The budget was about 2% over; they went over on maintenance.  

        
                      Motion:  To transfer $5,000 from Main Sewer Line Repair combined with the $5,000 from the Town into the Major Sewer Line Repair Account which the Town maintains.
        Tyler/Barton
        Passed unanimously

                       Motion: To transfer $15,000 from the Contingency Fund into our Sinking Fund.
        Tyler/Barton
        Passed unanimously

        Motion: To transfer $3,000 into the Pump Station Replacement Fund.
                        Tyler/Barton
                        Passed unanimously

        Mr. Leslie reported that the first of the pump station upgrades has been done; it went well.  It will save money if two are done at one time.
        
        XII. Adjournment
