CLEARFIELD – New software is expected to help Clearfield Municipal Authority customers with their bills.
At Tuesday’s CMA meeting, resident Bill Hand asked about the authority’s progress with monthly bills.
CMA Manager John Williams said the authority has implemented new billing software and a new server. He said the staff has been training to use the new system and working to prepare monthly statements and billing, rather than quarterly billing.
Williams also said the “vast majority” of the new meters have been installed. He said the staff has been doing great with the changes.
Also at the meeting, Engineer Jim Balliet of Gwin, Dobson and Foreman, said the Montgomery Run Water Treatment facility has been able to manage the aluminum levels to comply with the new NPDES permit from the Department of Environmental Protection.
He said the new regulations are manageable and with a few adjustments, the treatment facility can meet the limits.
Balliet said the Mount Joy pumping station design has been completed and the public water supply permit has been approved. Balliet said CMA will apply for various grants when they become available.
He said the upgrades to the wastewater treatment facility is wrapping up. He said Lobar has essentially completed their punch list work; Church and Murdock is essentially complete with its punch list work, as well.
In other business, the authority voted to pay $2,375 to Liberty Mutual as well as $18,444.42 and $32,461.79 to Church and Murdock.
