Hopedale Board of Water & Sewer Commissioners
Minutes of November 17, 2010

The Hopedale Board of Water & Sewer Commissioners met on November 17, 2010 in the Draper Room of the Town Hall.  Members present were Chairperson Morin and Commissioner Tarca.

Chairperson Morin made a motion to open the meeting at 6:00PM.

Chairperson Morin called a brief emergency meeting of the Hopedale Water and Wastewater Commissioners regarding longevity pay.  Chairperson Morin stated that a vote was taken at the September 9th, 2010 passing longevity pay for the Water/Wastewater Superintendent.  Chairperson Morin stated they received notification from the Town Coordinator last week that they did not have the authority to vote on longevity pay.  The Board has requested in writing from Kopelman and Paige a letter stating that we did not have the authorization to vote on longevity pay along with the procedure on how to collect the money back.  Once the letter is received we can determine how the money will be repaid by Superintendent Tim Watson.  

Chairperson Morin apologized to the Town of Hopedale on behalf of the Board for apparently overstepping their boundaries.  He also apologized to Superintendent Tim Watson for putting him through this ordeal.

Commissioner Tarca made a motion to adjourn at 6:02 P.M. and made unanimous by Chairperson Morin.   

I attest to the best of my knowledge that this is a true and accurate recording of the minutes of November 17, 2010.

Timothy Watson, Manager
