Supervisor Moses called the meeting to order at 5:30 P.M. Dave Clark stated that the water meters need to be updated. Currently there are approximately 870 Neptune water meters that need to be changed. Dave stated that it is very difficult to find parts for the current water meters and he has only about a dozen left in inventory. Dave said there are a few options that the Town can look into. The Board would like to move into the transition over the next few years and go slow and easy. Supervisor Moses will look to see if there is any available grant money to do the project. The cost per meter will be between $179.00 - $200.00. The Board suggested that the Town look to see where they can get more parts by putting in the Specification number and to see if other Towns have this model that they need to get rid of to cover us until we make the total switch over. Councilman Friedman moved to adjourn at 5:45 p.m., seconded by Councilwoman Wood; carried.
