Ken will follow up with Stadelman to see if we can run three pumps at the intake.  Chlorinator is still having issues.  Del Nor out of Sugarland Texas gave Ken a bid of $9,600 to fly out for three days to diagnose the problem. Siskiyou pumps in on schedule.  

District Manager Ami Arneson reported, the Auditors asked about the board raising the Capitalization policy for infrastructure items only to $5,000.  This would save the company money in the long run.  Ami will bring back the proper verbiage for the change at the Aug 2023 meeting.  Also, we have a bid from Strahm's seal coating for $11,412.84 to reseal the parking lot.  Arneson left a message at Tri City out of Medford to submit another bid.  Chairman Fraser asked Arneson to give a copy to the Fire Dept, as they will be asked to pay for half of the seal coating bid.  

Fyre remarked he will investigate what exactly the Treasures position does and get back to us.
