Bids for Employee Health Insurance were submitted to the Trustees.

Other plans under the Affordable Care Act that are comparable to the current plan, but with less coverage would be even higher increases of 20% up to 47%.

Mr. Dulle said everything is going good at the water plant. The Hydrants were flushed last week. One of the main Sewer lift stations had a pump fail, so we are waiting for a price on replacing that pump. There is a leak at one of the sewer lift stations at the Deerfield subdivision. It is at a line coming out of the lift station and we had to wait for it to dry up before taking our equipment in there to make the repair.
