Edon Board of Public Affairs addressed a light agenda when it convened in regular session Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at Village Chambers. Mayor Darlene Burkhardt called the late afternoon meeting to order with Andy Ledyard, Warren Henry, Chip Hulbert, Fiscal Officer Heidi Bidwell, Water/Wastewater Superintendent Chris Decker and Solicitor Tom Thompson in attendance.
In business taken up, members:
•Approved the plan calling for water tankers to be filled at the water tower for emergency or non-emergency fires outside Village limits; Solicitor Thompson will update the Village’s Water Rules and Regulations to reflect procedural changes.
•Approved replacing the Water Plant’s leaky window.
•Heard from Superintendent Decker that maintenance and daily operations were being completed at both facilities. He also noted he was preparing to “degrease” the Wastewater Treatment Plant’s lift station; treatment is to reduce FOG (fat, oil and grease) buildup which can cause float and pump operational problems.

•Accepted the Minutes, Financial Report and Bills as presented.
•Signed the Shut-Off List.
