MINUTES OF REGULAR MEETING
OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES
HOLIDAY SHORES SANITARY DISTRICT
Monday November 9, 2020
The Board of Trustees of the Holiday Shores Sanitary District met on the above date in regular session pursuant to laws and rules of said Board of Trustees and in accordance with the terms of the notice of regular meeting.
Richard Hayes, President called the meeting to order. Trustees, Jeff Sedlacek and Brennan Murphy were present. Also present were Carla Lankster, District Clerk and Mr. Ken Dulle of Restoration Resources, Operations.
The Auditors from Scheffel Boyle were in attendance to present the Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Report for the year ended 6/30/2020. The auditors present were Chris Sobrino, Julie Billeter and Josh Andre. Chris Sobrino spoke to the Trustees regarding some changes in how debt is recorded and that Scheffel Boyle has a clean opinion of the financial reporting of the District. He stated that all information was given to the auditors in a timely manner, and questions were always answered quickly. The audit representation letter was signed by Mr. Murphy and Ms. Lankster and returned to the auditors.
A proposal was presented to the Trustees by Mr. Brian Ury of CNB Bank, to move bank accounts and the water plant loan from Associated Bank. The loan could be refinanced at a lower interest rate, but the payments would increase because the current loan has a slight balloon payment at maturity. The re-bonding fee would be approximately $15,000.00, but Mr. Ury said the overall savings would be around $70,000.00. The interest rate earned on the deposit accounts would be increased. He also mentioned an optional service to help avoid fraud, called ACH Positive Pay and Check Positive pay. There are two other banks that we expect to present proposals to the Board. Ms. Lankster should compare and make a recommendation to the Trustees.
