The regular monthly meeting of the Rye Board of Trustees was held Wednesday, November 13. All trustees, the Mayor, and the Town Clerk were in attendance.

Gary Golladay reported that the water treatment plant lost power and was down for three days. The cause is unknown. The need both for a battery back-up system and some sort of alarm was brought up. No one knew the system was down. There was no interruption in service. The situation might have been different had the outage occurred in the summer.

The treatment plant is working with a back-up air compressor. The main one is being repaired. There is also a drier at the plant that isn't being used because there isn't an available power outlet. The power line is very accessible; an electrician will be contacted to put in an outlet.

A crack was found in the storage tank that has been offline. Mr. Golladay asked if there was a liner in the tank. After some discussion, the Board agreed there was no liner. If the crack is not too bad, a liner may solve the problem. The severity of the crack will be investigated further to determine if it will be cost-effective to repair the tank, or if it will be more prudent to replace it.

The asphalt work to the driveway has been completed. Several trustees and Mr. Golladay all reported being pleased with the work. Clerk Beach was instructed to pay the bill for that work once received.

There have been a few issues with the new water billing system. Although Clerk Beach has been able to correct the billings, there are concerns with why only certain meters are having problems. She will do some web training to learn more about how to fix the problems. It may turn out some meters need to be replaced.
