Water authority agrees to pay engineering fee
At a recent meeting of the Summit Hill Water Authority, the board conducted the following business items:
• Accepted and agreed to pay a bill to Carbon Engineering for $9,103.50 for professsional services and work completed on the recent solar project overseeing the construction of the solar field.
• Tabled discussion on a tap-in fee for the new ambulance building being constructed at the east end of Ludlow Street. Authority engineer Mike Tirpak agreed to review the authority's regulations and make a recommendation based on his findings.
• Approved the shut-off list, but agreed to hold off until April for a property located at 217 West White St., due to personal reasons for the property owner at their request.
• Unanimously approved the rescinding of all actions in previous meetings that set a four percent employer match for the Simplified Employee Pension IRA Plan and adopted a three percent match per IRS regulations.
• Received notice from Blue Cross that their Group Sponsored Health Care Coverage plan required two employees to participate and since there was only one employee the group coverage would be unavailable beginning in December 2011.
• Unanimously approved offering non-group coverage to Alice Kane, spouse of Alexander Kane, instead of the group coverage at a cost of $500.60 per month, which will be covered at 50 percent of the cost by the authority.
Since this is not part of a group, the member will have to pay the bill and submit the application themselves. This plan is available until the spouse reaches 65.
