B.  Gail informed the board of how the contract for school nursing was going with RRMR Schools.  Diana Swartzrock is no longer the nurse going to Rockford.  Gail made the change to Stacy Kabele.  All is going well at the school.  Stacy has been busy writing IEPs, emergency plans, and assisting the medical assistants and secretaries with any questions they may have.

A.  Year to date budget at 19.63%








B.  Well sampling has picked up doing about 9 a week.  Have done a few well closings.

Septic system installations have picked up this month had been slow this summer. Have about 15 permits issued that the system needs to be installed. One of our Contractors that were not going to get certified changed his mind and is going this

month to do so. Also have one other new contractor that is also going through the certification.


Old Business:  No old business.


New Business:  Jeff asked Board for guidance on penalty for a contractor that is not certified. There has been some issues in Butler County with none certified contractors installing system. The board felt that Jeff should issue a citation. Also should put something in his procedures to reflect this. Jeff will have Misty add something to their procedures and present it to the board.
