          Water consumed: 609,000; water paid for: 537,000; balance for month:

 -72,000; YTD: -1,649,000.

          Schoolhouse items: Kastens Electric disconnected the boiler on the recommendation of the Office of the DOL, boiler inspection. Nebraska City Utilities turned off the gas to the building for the summer. October they will turn it back on for the furnace.  This should save some money for the town. The sewer pumps have not been able to keep up with all the rain.  Sherman Company out of Des Moines was called to come look at them.  A sump pump was purchased to put in the pit from Menards.  An estimate was requested to see what the cost of repairing the pump at the shop for a back up pump.  The Sherman Company will get that estimate to us.  Monitoring of the lift station and pumps will continue.

          Final BBQ preparations are underway. It was decided to set up the water slide at 4:30 p.m. on Friday. To go meals will be served out of the concession stand to see if that helps with the long line at the shelter.  Bob Bryan has offered to announce the kid’s tractor pull.  There will not be a bean bag tournament this year and the horseshoe tournament will have 20 teams in this year. The Ebert Family is hosting the Fun Run again this year.  Everything is ready to go.

          Clean Up Day: Dwight Kastens will donate his time monitoring items dumped.
