ITEM #1: CALL TO ORDER
Meeting was called to order at 6:30 PM by Chairman Amy Atamian.
ITEM #2: JENNIFER BELLIZZI FROM ‘3 KEYS RESTAURANT’ AT 19 MAIN ST FOR APPROVAL OF PROPOSED USAGE
Jennifer Bellizzi arrived at 6:
The current allocation is 3,000 GPD and the current usage is ~300 GPD, but the property is only being used by Uncle Leo’s Coffee and Donuts.
Ms. Bellizzi and her sister will be opening a restaurant at 19 Main St and will also be using the cement slab at 15 Main St as a patio.
There will be 64 restaurant seats and 14 bar seats inside. The patio will have 30 seats.
The shed currently on the patio will be used as an ice cream hut. Any water used on the patio will be from the ice cream scoopers. There will also be table service on the patio. There will be 2 barrels of water; one clean and one ‘greywater’ which will be filled inside the restaurant and disposed of in the kitchen sinks.
MOTION: Keep current allocation of 3,000 GPD for 19 Main St. T. Eubanks, motion. D. Pattee, second. Passed unanimously.
ITEM #3: AUTHORIZATION FOR EMERGENCY EXPENSES
There is an extra $300 to be spent for the blower that was authorized at July’s monthly meeting as it must be shipped from Germany. Ms. Atamian has allowed for the extra $300 be added to the approved cost.
There was also a failure on the blower in the membrane tank and no alarm went off, so Mr. Burke requested that NIC come to the plant to find out why. Mr. Burke wanted authorization to call them because it may be a large expenditure.
Ms. Atamian stated that in the past, there have been emergency purchases made without the knowledge or consent of the board. Ms. Atamian feels there should be a procedure in place when things like that happen so the Commission is not blindsided with large expenditures. She asked if she could approve these things and then notify the Commission via email.
Mr. Pattee stated that if something fails and needs to be replaced, Ms. Atamian should be able to authorize it. Mr. Eubanks agreed if it were up to a certain dollar amount and anything above that should be approved at an Emergency Meeting.
ITEM #4: PUBLIC COMMENT
ITEM #5: ADJOURNMENT
MOTION: Motion to adjourn. D. Pattee, motion. V. McPherson, second. Approved unanimously.
Meeting Adjourned at 6:48 PM
