Motion by Dibble, 2nd by Richards to have Chairman sign the agreement with Independent Audit Services for the 2016 and 2017 audit for a fee of $4200.

FMG was present.  Alex reported that the September ground water monitoring has been done; well #1 has been officially abandoned; areas of waste outside the cell have been bladed back and the edge lines have been staked. 

Alex also discussed the timeline and process for design and permitting of a new area of cells once cell 4 and 5 have been filled.  The board need not take any immediate action but needs to be aware that the process before construction could take 18months to 2 years with actual construction taking up to 9 months.  The board also has to have the filled cells capped within 60 days.  Current data suggests that the current cells have approximately 8 years of capacity left.

Barker Concrete and Construction representative was present to address the daily landfill operations.

Equipment repairs have been made. All seems to be going well.

Motion by Kizer, 2nd by Nabholz to a have public comment period at the end of the agenda lasting 5 minutes per speaker.
