WATER: McFrederick increased salaries by $5,000. McFrederick is trying to focus on getting all the well rehabilitation done.

A dump truck would cost about $35,000; cost is split between water $17,500 and sewer $17,500. $12,500 was budgeted in water for the cicle mower. A new shop for public works/fire department is proposed at $25,000 in water and $25,000 in sewer.
SEWER: McFrederick increased salaries by $5,000 and allowed for increases at the Plant. In order to decrease infiltration, McFrederick would like to use CIPP/Pine Bursting, $150,000, on two different sewer lines. One line runs under Lions Park, out to the church and out to Florence and then the Long Haul Line from Green Acres down toward the Depot before it goes to the plant. They would start with the Long Haul Line. The dump truck split is $17,500, $12,500 was budgeted for the cicle mower and a new shop for public works/fire department is at $25,000. $20,000 was budgeted for phosphorus filters in the air lifts.
