All 3 contracts of Phase 3 are substantially complete.  With a project this big, there are bound to be issues that need to be addressed.  Customers are encouraged to contact GASD with issues that need to be addressed.  Problem areas will be assessed and the appropriate action will be taken.  We appreciate the courtesy that customers in the areas have shown to the construction crews.  The crews have all expressed their thanks for the cookies, baked goods, etc.  The GASD Board continues to make sure that all available monies are spent.  Currently, there are 4 associations that have petitioned the board for service.  The Board of Trustees welcomes areas and associations that request service.  The main infrastructure is in the ground and future projects will start to be planned in the near future.  While a small number of problems cannot be solved to the satisfaction of the customer, GASD will continue to serve those people in the sewer district.  Please contact us or attend our meetings which are held the first Monday of every month at the sewer plant.  There is currently a position open on the board.  Interested parties should contact Karen Thornton at 374.4025.  Dave Taylor, Chairman, GASD
