With the absence of Nesquehoning Water Authority chairman, David Hawk, the monthly meeting was conducted by vice chairman, Frank Parano.

Authority member Gary Porembo made a motion in light of the fact that Balliet Insurance Agency of Nesquehoning did not attend the meeting or show any interest in the authority switching their business to their company, that the authority would keep their insurance with the Byrant Agency of Tamaqua

Parano read a letter that a new water tank will be installed in New Columbus in place of the old one. The Gaming Commission will fund part of the installation and construction will begin in June of 2012. Ron Tirpak, borough engineer, will develop the plans for the project.

The authority approved bills for $19,323.93 and ratified bills paid in July 2011 for $8,853.60.
