                         Superintendent Burshem Report, Stadelman Electric is currently working at the intake to add soft starts to the pumps.  A contract for electrical work was presented by Burshem for Crown Terrace 1 project.  The scope of work had three options.  Burshem will get with Stadelman for a better description of option 1 and 2.  The board agreed option 3 was out.    Burshem also requests that the board alter our guidelines regarding contractors performing installs for newly added services. He's requesting that the board only allow one contractor to be under contract with Harbor Water. In this manner, he may guarantee that the person performing the work has a bond and a license. The board recommended that we provide clients a choice of two or three contractors who satisfy the requirements for bonding and licenses.
