By Roll, Trustee votes are as follows:  Hardbarger ñ Aye, Boardman ñ Aye, Vidlak ñ Aye, Seyler ñ Aye and Brown - Aye. Motion approved.

New Business:  The clerk presented a proposal for a water rate increase to cover funding shortfalls and the implementation of a new water reserve after the water meter installation project depleted the previous reserves.  Since the implementation of water meters, residential water use has decreased and water income has also decreased.  A dollar should be added to the water charge which would increase the monthly charge from $20 to $21 per residence and an increase from $1.50 to $1.75 for every 1000 gallons over the first 1000.  This increase should balance the water fund and allow for a 5% water fund reserve each year.  The sewer rates are adequate and will remain the same.  A new water rate resolution will be voted on at the October regular meeting that reflects the rate increase.

Vidlak motioned to adjourn at 8:51pm. 2nd by Seyler.  By Roll, Trustee votes are as follows:  Hardbarger ñ Aye, Boardman ñ Aye, Vidlak ñ Aye, Seyler ñ Aye and Brown - Aye. Motion approved.

The next regular meeting is scheduled for October 8, 2014, 7 pm at the ALA Hall.  The Meeting Notice and Agenda will be posted for the public at the Village Office, the Union Branch of the Nehawka Bank, and the Union Post Office.
