Water System: The update from Fred is that the well #1 replacement, scheduled for June 10, was postponed for further coordination with PUD. The installation will be rescheduled for sometime in July, and the Board will then notify the water membership.
The project was successfully completed on July 8!
BMA Meetings: It is difficult to schedule a membership meeting until we can all safely gather and conduct BMA business. There are several important issues on hold pending discussions and votes. The Board is committed to ensure safety and continues to monitor the state and county guidance for conducting gatherings. “The Island County Board of Health plans to discuss application for Phase 3 on June 16, 2020. Once local officials vote to approve to apply to enter Phase 3, the application must be submitted to the state for approval by the WA State Secretary of Health. The exact date that Island County may potentially move to Phase 3 is unknown, but the process will start the week of June 15, 2020. ” (Island County, Dept. of Emergency Management Press Release, 06-12-2020). The BMA bylaws require a minimum 14 day advance notification for any meeting. In the meantime, take good care!
