Department Head Reports:  Conservation – The Beach Bash on August 21 had a good turn out and people enjoyed the entertainment and the food trucks.  IT- Found a decommissioned backup device that was still on our system, which is now unplugged making our network even more secure. Treasurer-Still collecting taxes and reported that only 14% of our tax collections are done online. Schafer pointed out that an EFT payment online charge for a customer is 25 cents, which is less expensive than a stamp to mail in the payments.
