conflict of interest regarding his tenancy and would respond appropriately if/when the situation arose.

Bond pool, that the cost of the new water treatment plant will be between $750, 000 and $1.2 million, that the cost
includes the removal of the current water treatment plant, and that rates would not have to be increased to fund the
plant if the District participates in the Bond Pool. Director Dutkin asked how the purchase decision would be made
regarding the type of plant and the manufacturer. Mr. Dinges replied that selection of the plant will be based on a
recommendation from the District's water engineering consultants, according to gallon per day treatment limits,
