February 28, 2014 Financials: The Committee reviewed items of the budget balance sheet with John Donaghy.

Budget Status: The Committee reviewed the next FY budget status.

Customer Deposits: A review of the current ordinances will need to be researched to see if customer deposits can be reduced after a 12 months period with a good pay history.

Bill Payment Assistance: The committee was advised that Finance has been reviewing current laws for JWSC to set up a service for customer donations on Bill Payment Assistance and the ability for “rounding up” on a customer bill payment. The new finance system may have the ability to track and maintain this type of payment service.

Fire Hydrants: The committee discussed the responsibilities of maintaining fire hydrants in both the city and the county. Steve Swan will be setting up a meeting with all parties involved to develop a standard for fire hydrant maintenance and testing.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:15 PM.
