Chairman Hawkins welcomed those in attendance and called the meeting to order.  He reminded the Board and its audience the purpose of this special called meeting was multi-purpose: (a) to discuss the sewer projects for the Town of Fletcher; (b)to preview the budget of the Parks and Recreation Department; (c) and to review the funding for donations to non-profit agencies during the upcoming fiscal budget year.


Chairman Hawkins opened the floor for a motion to convene as the Cane Creek Water and Sewer District Board to conduct business on the Town of Fletcher sewer requests.  Commissioner Kumor made a motion to convene as the Cane Creek Water and Sewer District Board.  The motion carried.


Chairman Hawkins reviewed a letter he received at this meeting from Mayor Parrish making recommendations for appointments to the Cane Creek Water and Sewer District Advisory Board.  Per the letter, Fletcher Town Council recommended two appointments: (1) Fletcher Town Council member; a property owner within the Town of Fletcher who is connected to the Cane Creek WSD System.  This appointment could possibly be a representative of the industrial community.  Mayor Parrish=s letter also recommended that the County Commissioners should appoint the majority of the members (three) as owners of the System.  The recommendation was: (1) County Commissioner; a member outside of the Cane Creek WSD; and one member within the Cane Creek WSD who is connected to the System but is not a resident within the Fletcher Town limits.  It was the consensus of the Board to accept the recommendations for appointments to the Cane Creek Water and Sewer Advisory Board as stated in Mayor Parrish=s letter.


Chairman Hawkins reviewed for the Board a resolution
