The Board discussed a change order for wiring at the WWTP. Additional mixing units are currently out for bid, additional wiring is needed to install the mixers upon purchase as these were not part of the original design.

The LA Group has been preparing an excel sheet of Zoning by individual parcels and discovered Tax Map #60.78-1-1.2 was incorrectly zoned as Residential in the original Zoning Law.

The Board instructed Atty Buettner to prepare the necessary local law to change the zoning to Industrial.
