The Columbia/Adair County Utilities District board elected David Jones treasurer at its regular 2nd Thursday monthly meeting, 11 Dec 2014.
Jones succeeds Rudy Higginbotham, who has been replaced on the board with the appointment of Larry Russell Bryant by the Adair Fiscal Court on Tue 09 Dec 2014.
Board accepts low bid for new pickup truck
The board opened two bids for a new pickup truck. Don Franklin Ford submitted a bid of $23,500 for a 2015 Ford F-150. Harvey-Ellis Chevrolet bid $24,619.81 for a 2015 Chevrolet. The board accepted the low bid of Don Franklin Ford. Both are Columbia, KY dealership, and it was stated during the meeting that as of 4pmCT, Thursday, both dealerships were owned by the Franklin Family Group.
Longhunters project complete
General Manager Lenny Stone reported that everything is complete in the Longhunters project, a part of Phase 15, styled the "Downtown Project," except for one leak to be corrected within a brief period.
Telemetry work to be completed shortly for Russell Co. line tank
The general manager said that telemetry for the newest water tower, on Gentry Mill Road near the Adair-Russell County line is almost complete. Preliminary changes at the Shepherd Tower on Liberty Road has been done, and all that is needed now is for the telemetry expert to install instruments at the tower on Gentry Mill Road, and an antenna to be installed there for control of the towers remotely to be activated. At present, water levels on at the Gentry Mill tower are maintained manually.
Most work on the lift stations complete
Mr. Stone said that the collection system at the Columbia Wastewater Plant are ready to go.
Most of the work replacing the lift stations is done. Center Street, the most urgent of the lift station situations and the new gravity feed lines is now online.
The lift station on KY 80, across from Westlake Drive, needs only electrical hookup by Kentucky Utilities. That work has been relayed by the recent wet weather.
Mr. Stone said that the work on the lift station at Majestic Yachts has been slowed when the contractor encountered some of the hardest rock situations seen in these parts.
Water system seeing growth
Mr. Stone said that the water systems are all running well. One indicator of improving times, he said, was that there were 69 turn-ons, more than the 61 cut-offs during the month of November.
He said that $1,008 in old bills had been collected. He said that the clerk who does this work as just a part of her overall job description has collected $19,470 this year, more than her salary.
Water loss for the month was 11.9%, he said.
Present at the meeting were Robert Flowers, chair; Vice Chair Tim Baker; Secretary Barry Stotts; Treasurer Rudy Higginbotham, and Member and Treasurer-Elect David Jones; Board Attorney Marshall Loy; Office Manager Jennifer Carter; Board Consulting Engineer David Bowles, and media representative. The CAUD Board meets each 2nd Thursday at 6pmCT, at 109 Grant Lane, Columbia, KY.
