* I was reappointed to the Triangle J Council of Governments -- 2 year term (5-0)

* Commercial Park Entrance -- Easement to allow us access to our park from US 64 has been obtained from Mr. Stone in exchange for utilities to his property. This not only saved considerable money -- we can now move forward with phase I.

* Silk Hope Water project (school) has a contingent contract awarded ($898,652) with J. F. Wilkerson contracting. This will be contingent upon the option and the cost for crossing the Rocky River (5-0)

* Group "B" Pea Ridge Rd. main (16 inch water line) has been approved by the state and the tentative date for opening bids is June 21. This is the first step in getting our county trunk line in place to service the southeast and southwest water districts. (5-0)

* Water taps for customers on existing lines in the southeast water district were approved to go to contract bids. (5-0)

* Pump station upgrades to 4 million gallons per day will go forward. Contract has been initiated with the Town of Cary for beginning the design of the Raw Water Pump Station (their intake) (5-0)

* Budget Workshop -- we're certainly not finished but we think we will be able to hold our tax increase to 4 cents. From revenue neutral/reappraisal that would be 59.7 cents per $100 of value. (Current rate is 64.64 cents per $100)
