Limestone:  One additional load of limestone has been authorized but not purchased yet.  A motion was made to authorize the purchase of a 4th load of limestone.  Motion passed.  This allows the purchase of 2 more loads of limestone, bringing the total for the year to 4 loads.  We may not be able to purchase the limestone from New Enterprise.  Ruth will contact the Brookville Municipal Authority about support for limestone for 2021.
 
Web site:  Facebook is now up and running.  It can be accessed on the NFWA home page.
 
Water Sampling:  There was a misunderstanding with Bill Sabatose about the free tests.  He agreed to a 25% reduction on the bill.  We agreed to pay that amount.  The previous sample results looked ok except for the acidity.  
 
NFWA Meetings:  December NFWA meeting has already been canceled.  A motion was made to move the NFWA meetings to the 2nd Tuesday of the month and change the starting time to 10:00 am.  Motion passed.  
The next NFWA meeting will be on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 10:00 am.
 
For the Good of the Order:  A discussion was had about not having insurance.  General liability insurance will be discussed next year.  Can we come up with an outreach program for getting additional active members.  The beginning of the next meeting should start with the election of officers for 2021.  Dana has agreed that she would be willing to serve as Secretary.
 
Adjournment:  With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned by President Ruth Rowan at 9:59 am.
