The August meeting of the Town of Rye Board of Trustees was held August 14, with trustees Sonny Jackson, Deborah Jackson, David Douglas, and Sandra Steele, as well as Mayor Mickey Smith and Town Clerk Sherri Beach in attendance. Trustees Sam Serracino and Marty Rahl were absent.

Bob Boyd, CPA, opened the meeting with a discussion of the new accounting reports presented to the Board. He has been working with Clerk Beach to streamline, simplify, and clean up the accounting records. He said the work is nearly complete. Clerk Beach is pleased with how much easier the accounting is now, and the Board was impressed with the clarity of the reports. Mr. Boyd said the annual report was filed with the state with no penalties.

One citizen addressed the Board with a few concerns. She wondered if the road work was done. She was concerned about all the loose gravel. Mayor Smith told her the road crew would be back to sweep the gravel off the road, hopefully in the next few days.

She also wondered what could be done about the people speeding up and down Boulder. One vehicle in particular was mentioned. Several of the Board members had noticed the same violator. Mayor Smith said the only recourse was to take down the license plate number and turn it into the authorities.

Her other concern was over the increase in her water bill. She's fairly new to the area, so Mayor Smith explained the recent rate increase to her. He also assured her that the new meter reader application will be able to track usage by day, so if there is a spike in the bill it will help pinpoint when, and possibly why, there was higher usage than anticipated.
