  1. Brett Converse, JUB regarding NPDES Permit, Grant options, Lake Study: The Lake Study has been reviewed and evaluated and now sent on to Boise. Brett will be submitting a public access request of the report to review what sent. Brett and Tanner have plans to tour a chemical plant in Parkdale, OR.  They are a little smaller than us and have been up and running for quite a while.  Will be meeting with an operator there and hopefully one of their Board Members to obtain feedback on the system that they are using.
  2. The Cottages Homeowners’ Association regarding the possibility of lake access for outflow was discussed. Brian Werst, KPSD Legal Counsel is working on a purchase agreement and easement for lake access.
  3. Grant Nixon received the paperwork from KPSD regarding the purchasing of needed ERs for the Ponderay Carwash. Mr. Nixon let the Board know that they would not financially be able to meet the 6 months deadline that the Board had proposed. Grant had called Eric directly; however, Eric let him know that he had to come before the Board for discussing other options. The carwash currently has 11 ERs.  The average over the last 12 months has the carwash usage at 15 ERs. The Nixon’s just invested in upgrades for the carwash and would like to postpone the purchasing until April 2023 when the business picks back up.  Table any further discussion and decisions until November meeting.  Grant Nixon will bring a proposal in writing to present to the Board at that time.
