THE POWER OF COMMWITY
For Customer of Menasha Water Utility June 2015
' .'••\ ..,^: •.....-
We are pleased to present you with this year's Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. ,Th^repor|; is designed to keep you and/or your
family mformed about the quality of water and services we deliver to you every day. Oar yvaier is safe and meets all federal and state
requirements; our goal is to continuously provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to know
Menasha Water Utility continues to work to improve the water treatment process and protect our natural water resources. We are
committed to ensuring the quality of your drinking water.
If you have any questions about this report or other concerns about your water utility, please call our Water Utility Manager Timothy Gosz
at 920.967.3451. You can learn more about our Water Utility by visiting the Menasha Utilities web site at www.menashaufciliiies.com.
We want you, our valued customer, to be informed about your water utility. We also welcome you to provide public input at the Menasha
Utilities Commission meetings the fourth Wednesday of each month at 8:00 a.m. at our Office and Operations Complex, 321 Milwaukee
Street.
Our water supply source is taken from Lake Wmnebago, filtered, treated, and disinfected at our Water Filtration Plant. It is then distributed
to our customers through our water distribution system. A summary of the source water assessment for Menasha Utilities is available at:
www.dnr.state.wi.us/orR/water/dwfi/swap/surface/menasha.pdf
The water we deliver to you is continuously monitored and tested according to Federal and State laws. Currently we monitor and test for
over one hundred chemical element and compound constituents. All sources of water are subject to some elements or compounds that are
naturally occurring or man made. These can be microbes, organic or inorganic chemicals, or radioactive materials. All drinking water,
mcludmg bottled drmking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some constituents. It is important to
remember that the presence of any of these constituents does not necessarily pose a health risk. To understand the possible health effects
described for many regulated constituents, a person would have to drmk two liters of water every day at the Maximum Contaminant Level
(MCL) level for a lifetime to have a one-in-a-million chance of having the described health effect. We have leamed through monitoring
and testmg our water that some constituents have been detected at levels below the MCL. The MCL is the highest level allowed in
drinking water for each constituent, and set by the EPA at very stringent levels to protect public health.
From the entire list of over 100 elements and compounds we monitor and test for, small detectable amounts were found for only 18.
Included in this report is a table of these test results for our water for the period of January 1 to December 31,2014. Dates and results for
less frequent testing are also included in this table.
In summary, the DNR and EPA have determined that our water is safe at these low levels. We are proud that our quality drinking
water meets or exceeds all federal and state requirements. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1.800.426.4791 or www.epa.gov/safewater.
Menasha Utilities upgraded its treatment facilities in 2007 to include UV Disinfection and Granular Activated Carbon Contactors. With the
upgrade, we meet or exceed the level of treatment required for cryptosporidium by the EPA's Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water
Treated Rule which took effect September 2013, therefore we did not monitor for cryptosporidium nor were we required to.
Lead in drinking water is rarely the sole cause of lead poisoning, but it can add to a person's total lead exposure. Infants and young
children are typically more vulnerable to lead in drinking water than the general population. It is possible that lead levels at your home
may be higher than at other homes in the community as a result of materials used in your home's plumbing, especially if the home is older.
If you are concerned about elevated lead levels in your home's water, you may wish to have your water tested, and flush your tap for 30
seconds to 2 minutes before using tap water. All potential sources of lead in the household should be identified and removed, replaced, or
reduced. Additional information is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline. (800) 426-4791

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such
as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune
system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drmking
water from theu- health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and
other microbio logical contaminants are available from the Safe Drmking Water Hotline. (800) 426-4791
The sources of drinking water, both tap wafer and bottled water, mclude rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As
water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, m some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up substances resultmg from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
• Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations and wildlife.
• Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally- occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,
industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
• Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and residential
uses.
• Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes
and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoffand septic systems.
• Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurrmg or be the resuit of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. PDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same
protection for public health.

Health effects for any contaminants with MCL violations/Action Level Exceedances
Contaminant Health Effects
Infants and children who drink water containing lead in excess of the action level could experience delays in their physical
LEAD or mental development. Children could show slight deficits in attention span and learning abilities. Adults who drink this
water over many years could develop kidney problems or high blood pressure.
Additional Health Information
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking
water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing Menasha Utilities is responsible for
providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used m plumbmg components. When your water has been
sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using
water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead
in drmking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to mmimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at
www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
Information on Monitoring for Crypfosporidium and Radon
Our water system did not monitor our water for cryptosporidium or radon during 2014. We are not required by State or Federal drinkmg
water regulations to do so.

We are requu'ed to monitor your drmking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator
of whether or not your drinking water meets health standards. Durmg the compliance period noted in the above table, we did not complete
all monitoring or testmg for the contaminant(s) noted, and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of your drinking water durmg that time.
This was the result of a certified Laboratory Error and a retest was done immediately and was below the MCL. The retest was conducted
December 1 ,2014. The sample for Febmary 2015 was completed one day early on 2/4/2015 which is a monitoring violation. The sample
collected was below the MCLs.

Servicios Piiblicos de Menasha llevadas a cabo el cuarto Mi^rcoles de cada mes a las 8:00 a.m. en nuestro Complejo de Oficinas y Operaciones en la
direcci6n 321 Milwaukee Street.
Nuestra fuente de agua es proveida del Lago Winnebago, filtrada, tratada, y desinfectada en nuestra PIanta de Filtraci6n de Agua. Despues es distribuida a
nuestros clientes a trav6s de nuestro sistema de distribuci6n. Usted puede encontrar un resumen de la evaluaci6n de la fuente de agua realizada por
Servicios Publicos de Menasha en: www.dnr.state.wi.us/ore/water/dwg/swap/sui-face/menasha.pdf
El agua que proveemos a usted es continuamente monitoreada y probada de acuerdo a las leyes Federates y Estatales, En la actualidad monitoreamos y
probamos mas de cien elementos qufmicos y compuestos constituyentes. Tod^ las fuentes de agua est6n sujetas a contener algunos elementos y
compuestos que ocurren naturalmente o son agregados par el hombre. Estos pueden ser microbios, quimicos org^nicos o inorganicos, o materiales
radioactivos. Se espera que toda agua potable, inciuyendo el agua embotellada, pueda contener af menos pequenas cantidades razonables de
constiluyentes. Es importante recordar que la presencia de cualquiera de estos constituyentes no necesariamente representa un riesgo a la saiud. Para
entender los posibles efectos a la salud descritos por muchos constituyentes regulados, una persona tendrfa que beber dos litros de agua cada dia al Nivel
Maxima de Contaminante (MCL) durante toda una vida para tener una oportunidad en un mil!6n de tener dichos efectos a la salud. A trav^s de monitoreo
y pruebas de agua, hemos aprendido que algunos constituyentes han sido detectados a niveles par debajo del MCL, El MCL es el nivel mas alto permitido
en agua potable par cada constituyente, establecido por la EPA a niveles astringentes para proteger la salud publica,
De toda la lista de 100 elementos y compuestos que moniforeamos y probamos, fueron encontradas pequeiias cantidades detectables de solo 18. Este
reporte incluye una tabla con los resultados de estas pruebas realizadas a nuestra agua durante el periodo de Enero 1 aDiciembre31, 2014. Lasfechasy
resultados de pmebas menos frecuentes tambien est^n incluidas en esta tabla.
En resumcn, la DNR y EPA han determinado que nuestra agua es segura en estos niveles bajos. Estamos orguHosos que ia ealidad de nuestra agua
pofable cumple o exeecie todos Eos requerimientos federales o estatales. Usted puede obtener mas informaci6n acerca de contaminantes y posibles
efectos a la salud llamando a la linea Hotline de la Agenda de Proteccion Ambiental y Seguridad de Agua Potable al 1.800.426.4791 o
www.epa.eov/safewater.
Servicios Publicos de Menasha actualiz6 sus instalaciones en 2007 para incluir Desinfecci6n UV y Contratistas de Carb6n Activado Granulado. Con esta
actualizaci6n, cumplimos o excedimos los niveles requeridos para cryptosporidium por Regla de Mejoramiento de la Superficie del Agua tratada a largo
Plazo 2 de la EPA la cual tom6 efecto en Septiembre de 2013, por lo tanto no monitoreamos el cryptosporidium ni tampoco nos fue requerido.
El plomo en el agua potable es raramente la unica causa de envenenamiento por plomo, pero puede aumentar la exposici6n a! plomo de una persona. Los
bebes y nifios pequenos son tfpicamente mas vulnerables al plomo en agua potable que el resto de la pobiaci6n. Es posible que los niveles de plomo en su
casa scan mas altos que en otros hogares en la comunidad como resultado de materiales utilizados en la plomeria de su casa, especialmente en casas mas
viejas. Si usted esta preocupado acerca de niveles de plomo elevados en el agua de su hogar, seria bueno para usted hacerle pruebas a su agua, y dejar
correr el agua del grifo durante 30 segundos a 2 minutos antes de usar el agua del grifo. Todas la fuentes potenciales de plomo en el hogar deben ser
identificadas y ya sea removidas, reemplazadas, o reducidas. Informaci6n adicional esta disponible en la Hnea Hotline de Seguridad de Agua Potabfe al
(800)426-4791.
Algunas personas pueden ser mas vulnerables a contaminantes de agua potable que la poblacion en general. Personas Inmuno-comprometidas como
aquellas enfermas de cdncer y bajo ti-atamiento de quimioterapia, personas sometidas a transplantes de 6rganos, personas con HIV/AIDS u otras
deftciencias inmunol6gicas, personas de la tercera edad, y beb^s pueden estar particularmente en riesgo de infecciones. Estas personas deben buscar
consejo medico acerca de beber agua. Los lineamientos de la EPA/CDC acerca de los medics aprobados para disminuir el riesgo de mfecci6n por
cryptosporidium y otros contaminantes microbiologicos est6n disponibies en la linea Hotline de Agua Potable Segura (800) 426-4791.
Las fuentes de agua potable, ya sea del grifo o embotellada, incluye rios, lagos, corrientes, estanques, reservas, manantiales y pozos. Mientras el agua
viaja sobre la superficie de la tierra o a trav6s del suelo, esta disuelve minerales que ocurren naturalmente y, en algunos casos, material radioactivo, y
puede recoger substancias que provienen de la presencia de atiimales o actividad humana.
Contaminantes que pueden estar presentes en agua de la fuente incluyen:
• Contaminantes microbiol6gicos, como virus y bacterias, que pueden venir de plantas de ti'atamiento de aguas negras, sistemas s^pticos,
operaciones agi'fcolas y ganaderas y vida salvaje.
• Contaminantes morg&nieos, como sales y metales, que pueden ocurrir naturalmente o como resultado de escummiento urbano de aguas
pluviales, descargas de aguas residuales industriales o domesticas, producci6n de aceite y gas, minerfa o agrieultura,
• Pesticidas y herbicidas, los cuales pueden venir de una variedad de fuentes como agricultura, escurrimiento urbano de aguas pluviales o de uso
residencial.
• Contaminantes qufmicos org^nicos, incluyendo qufmicos sint^ticos y vol^tiles, los cuales son el resultado de procesos indusfriales y de
produccion de petr6!eo, y que tambi^n pueden venir de estaciones de gas, escurrimiento urbano de aguas pluviales y sistemas s^pticos.
• Contaminantes radioactivos, los cuales pueden ocurrir naturalmente o como resultado de la producci6n de aceite y gas y actividades mineras.
Con el prop6sito de asegurar que el agua del gi'ifo es segura para beber, la EPA prescribe regulaciones que limitan la cantidad de ciertos contaminantes en
el agua proveidos por sistemas de agua publica. Las regulaciones de la PDA establecen los limites para contaminantes en agua embotellada, la cual provee
la misma protecci6n para la salud publica.

Bebes y nines que beben agua que contiene plomo por encima del nivel de acci6n podria experimentar retrasos en su

que beben esta agua durante muchos afios podrlan desarrollar problemas del rinon o alta presi6n sanguinea.
Informacion de Salud Adicional
Cuando esta presente, los niveles elevados de plomo pueden causar serios problemas de salud, especiahnente en mujeres embarazadas y
nines pequeftos. El plomo en el agua potable proviene principalmente de materiales y componentes asociados con Kneas de servicio y
plomeria domestica, Servicios Publicos de Menasha es responsable de proveer agua potable de alta calidad, pero no puede controlar la
variedad de materiales usados en componentes de plomerfa. Cuando su agua ha estado estancada por varias horas, usted puede reducir el
potencial por exposici6n al plomo abriendo el grifo y dejando con-er el agua durante 30 segundos a 2 minutos antes de usar agua para
beber o cocinar. Si usted esta preocupado acerca del plomo en el agua que usted bebe, es una buena idea que se realicen pruebas a su agua.
Mas informacion relacionada con el agua potable, m6todos de pruebas, y los pasos que se pueden tomar para reducir la exposici6n esta
disponible en la linea Hotline de Agua Potable Segura o en www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

We have made strides to improve communication and recognize this is a key area of focus and we
can look to make continued improvements. Effective 2 way communication is essential in an
organization and this initiative wil! take af! of us to accomplish and training will be provided. The
date of the training is still being determined.
We will look to p!an a company function later this summer and would look to those that stated they
had interest in planning or helping with the event to let Dawn know so we can start this process.
We will have an employee appreciation luncheon on June 1 7 and the management team will cook
lunch as a means to thank you for your hard work and dedication to the organization.
We wili continue to iook for more ways to communicate information to all empioyees inciucfing more
on our mission/ strategic initiatives, core competencies and expectations.
Computer/Phone Tips from IT
Press: #3 to rerecord your message: You're leaving a voicemail message for someone/ and you mess up.
Or maybe you've just said, "Dude—Your behavior at lunch was appalling/' and you realize that a more
fac+ful wording might be appropriate. Or you change your mind about leaving a message altogether.
All you have +o do is press the # key on your phone. At this point, a voice gives you three options:
• Press 1 to play your message back so you can hear it.
• Press 1 to continue recording. (In other words, the # is a great "Pause" key; it holds the recording while
you think.}
• Press 3 to erase your voicemail. You can start over again if you like/ but you don't have to.
Impressively enough, all four U.S. celiphone carriers—Verizon, Sprint, AT&T/ and T-MobJle—treat the #
keystroke exactly the same way, and offer exactly the same options when you press it.
Lineman Slang
This section on Sineman siang has been added to help familiarize you wl+h some of the Jargon used in the
electric utility industry.
High pot-To apply potential to eiectrical machine or equipment normally done during insulation testing
Knuckle busier" an adjustabie wrench
Jumper- A slack electrical connection between two points
Riser pole - A transition pole going from overhead to underground dis+ribution
Tub - Pole type transformer
Safety Incentive Program
The quiz for June is on Safety Awareness (General Safety and Health Policies] and is attached. If you are
looking for a copy of the safety policy you can ask your manager to review a hard copy or an electronic
copy is located in the S: Sharedata directory under Personnel & Safety/Safety.
Congrats to the May Winner: Bill Menting
Safety Tip: Be alert for the changes in weather
The weather today seems to be more variable than in the past, poiar vor+exes in the winter and more
frequent F5 tornadoes in the summer. To stay safe when severe weather strikes/ you must be prepared to
react and not start the planning process when it is too !a+e.
Here is a list of the common warnings used by the National Weather Service in our area:
• Severe Thunderstorm Watch: Conditions are favorable for a severe thunderstorm in the area(s)
covered under the wa+ch.
• Severe Thunderstorm Warning: A severe thunderstorm has been spotted in the area either by a
trained spot+er or Doppler Radar. This could mean high winds, large half/ lightning and heavy rain.
• Tornado Watch: Conditions are favorable for a tornado in the area(s) covered under the Tornado
Wa+ch. You do not need to take cover, but you should keep an eye on the conditions and stay
near a radio/ TV or weather radio.
• Tornado Warning: A tornado has been spotted in the area by someone on the ground or Doppler
Radar. Take cover immediately.
Our radios have a weather alerting system and will notify our employees if these events are activated.
You can also instdii various apps and turn alerts on your phone to get the weather notifications.

Wellness Corner - June is National Safety Month
Safety isn't Just a practice while on the job. This month concentrates on reducing leading causes of injury
and fatal incidents both at work/ on the road and in our homes and communities. Injuries are a leading
cause of disability for people of all ages" and they are the leading cause of. death for Americans ages 1
+o 44. 'Everyone can get involved to help prevent injuries. Safety issues include the following:
Prescription pdnkiller abuse: Prescription painkilier overdoses are a growing problem En the United States,
especially among women. About 18 women die every day from a prescription painkiller overdose —
more than 4 times as many as back in 1999.
Transportation safety: Doing other activities while driving — like texting or eating — distracts you and
increases your chance of crashing. Almost 1 in 5 crashes (17%) that injured someone involved distracted
driving.
Slips, trips/ and falls: One in 3 older adults falls each year. Many falls lead to broken bones and other
health problems.

THE POWER arCUfjSMUFtlTY
Date: June 19, 2015
To: Menasha Utilities Commission
From: Management Team
RE: DRAFT Organizational Chart
The organizational plan was based on feedback from department meetings and management meetings and
those ideas were combined with the strategic plan for the organization. The plan includes some new
positions, new titles or new responsibilities within positions. All of our current employees play a role in
this organizational structure it just may include some different responsibilities or it could provide a
different opportunity from what existed today. The plan was developed to look at the transition over a 5
year period and also looked at the potential retirements.
The retirements were looked at in order to look to develop a succession plan and allow us time to plan for
changes within the department, provide adequate training and knowledge transfer. They do not mean they
will automatically take place but will need to be continuously evaluated. The head count has the potential
to increase in 2016 by 3 people for a period of time in order to adequately work through the succession
plan and is anticipated to return to the same number of employees by 2018.
The attached structure shows the structure today and where we would like to be in 5 years and listed
below are the changes from the current structure to the final plan. The job descriptions and pay scales for
the new positions would be presented at the July Commission meeting.
Title Changes
• Engineering" Change title of Engineering Tech to GIS Technician to reflect more of role in
organization
• Water - Change title of Chief Water Plant Operator to Water Operations/Lab Foreman to be
consistent in titles within the department
• Water" Change title of Water Maintenance Mechanic - Operator to Water Maintenance Tech -
Operator
• Water - Change title of Water Maintenance Foreman to Water Distribution Foreman
Other Changes
• Customer Service - Change full time Clerk position to Customer Service Representative and provide
cross training for better coverage on customer service and billing
• Finance - Change Storeskeeper position to be Purchasing/Storeskeeper for electric and water and
responsibility of maintaining proper inventory levels and preparing materials for planned jobs.

including those systems indentified in the technology plan
• Water - Create Water Plant Maintenance Foreman to oversee the maintenance at the plant and no
Water Plant Technician position
• Water - Combine Meter Utility Specialist and Water Distribution Worker positions and create a
Distribution Utility Specialist to encompass Metering, Distribution and Cross Connections and add a
position
Potential retirements over S years
• Engineering - Chief Meter Technician
• Electric - Technician Assistant functions would transfer to Customer Service department and
Finance. Plant accounting function would be combined with AP/AR/GL Clerk function and becomes
one full time position.
• Two Electric Operators - Combine Operations and EMT position and look at succession plan for the
position by adding a Substation Technician position

Customer Spotlight-Boys & Girls Cluf) : ;
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Cities is part of a national network of affiliated Clubs. The national organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of
America, began in 1860 with several women in Hartford, Connecticut. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive
alternative, they organized the first Club. To recognize the fact that girls are 3 part of our cause, the national organization's name was
changed to Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 1990.
The new Boys & Girls Club of Menasha is a 33,600 square foot facility that will include a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics)
center/ robotics lab, and 3 7,500-square-foot gymnasium. The building wii) include two learning centers for different age groups, a technology
center, spaces for art, music, drama, dance, recreation, guidance and counseling. The facility officially opened on June 8, 2015.

Re: May Financial Statements compared to Budget
Electric Utilitv
The consumption of electricity was slightly higher than budget by 0.2% overall for the month of
May. We continued to experience warmer average temperatures during the month.
Consumption was 5.3% less than budget for the Residential customer class. Industrial
consumption increased by 479/348 Kwh, or 1.2% overall. The budgeted cost of power was
$71.45/MWh and the actual for the month was 4.5% higher at $74.63/MWh. The cost has
started to come down slightly/ but due to the one-month !ag in billing we anticipate the power
cost will decrease more next month with respect to the higher system support resource costs
related to specific plants.
Net Operating Income is less because of the higher purchase power cost. Revenues were
slightly higher to help offset/ but monthly expenses were all slightly higher due to six weeks of
payrol! charged to May. The budget is allocated equally. Distribution expenses are lower for
the year due to budgeted substation projects that have been pushed back to later in the year.
The Net Cash Balance does include all projects listed on the Project Status Report that we are
still working on completing. It also includes the shortfall in net operating income for the first
five months of the year.
The Electric Project Status Report shows the current status of capital and large maintenance
projects. A column was added on the right side of the page titled "Budgeted/Projected End
Date". For the projects that are ongoing/ all dates have been added for anticipated completion.
The projects that have been left blank have not been started yet. DOT projects continued in
May on Appleton Road. With all of the new development in Menasha a lot of time was spent
working on the billable projects. These projects are not reflected on the Project Status Report
because they are paid by the developer. New carpeting and tile was installed in the back half of
the Office Complex.
Water Utility
Water usage decreased by 2.5% compared to what was anticipated for the month of May. The
Residential and Industrial classes were down by 2.7% and 15%, respectively. The Resale
customer increased consumption by 12.2% which helped offset the Residential and Industrial
customers taking less water for the month. Our loss ratio is higher than our target/ but we
usually see it higher during this time of year when we are working on flushing the water
distribution system. For the year/ total consumption exceeds the budget by nearly 6%. Total
revenues for the year are higher than budget by 4.1%. Even though consumption was lower
this month net operating income is still higher due to iess expenses overa!!.
All expense categories were less than budget for the month. Pumping expense is lower for the
month because of less electric costs and delayed painting for the diesel building. The painting
will be completed a few months later than anticipated. In Water Treatment, chemical costs are
less than budget by $4,459 for the month. Less water was produced than anticipated but the
new chemical pricing is also beginning to reflect in the monthiy cost. This is also shown on the
Monthly Production/Chemical Cost graph. Our chemical costs are not following the normal
annual trend of major increases during summer months. We anticipate they will increase
because of the amount of chemicals used to treat the water during the summer months but it
will be at a rate that is less than in previous years. Distribution expenses are less due to less
time spent working on maintenance of mains.
The Water Project Status Report shows the current status of capital projects. The second
payment was made for the main replacement project which continued on Ida and Lincoln
Streets in May. The security upgrade at the Water Plant was installed and work continued on
the Chemical Feed Building control update. In May, the water utility received rebates from
Focus on Energy and WPPI Energy for the low lift pump/VFD project.
Energy Services and Telecommunications Utility
In Energy Services, the year-to-date revenue will be less by one month's payment for Jefferson
Park South because of the way it was set up in the billing system. It was set to be a number of
payments instead of by date which means that the additional month was recognized when the
lease first started.
For Telecommunications/ the expenses continue to be less than budget because we allocated
internal labor charges equally throughout the year. Time is charged to this utility only when the
work is done. Currently, all work is associated with a new customer in which time is charged to
the work order and is not recognized on the income statement. The Net Cash Balance
represents operating funds only. The depreciation fund is not included in this balance as it will
be used for replacement of existing infrastructure as needed. The cash balance is higher than
budget because work has not started yet for rerouting fiber at the river crossing. Also we
received a contribution for a new customer in which they have paid the cost for installation.
