375,000 gallons of water were used in December.  The city now has an annual maintenance contract with Dakota Pump.  The annual fee of $430 includes an inspection.


SMI has build a new safety grate and access cover for the lift station, to avoid an accident while taking water samples.


Eric Dybsetter noted that there is a problem certifying the service areas protected by the Porter Fire Department in 2009.  The document contained errors, and the Department of Revenue requires copies of both the fire service documents and apportionment agreements to make any changes.  The city does not have apportionment agreements with the townships.  Eric will work with Pat and the department of revenue to resolve the issue.
