I’ve been informed that some believe the ballot for the annual meeting may be modified at the meeting to add names. This is not true. The ballots will be finalized and printed in advance of the meeting. There will be a space in the ballot for write-in votes, but no names will be added to all the ballots after they are printed. Because of this confusion, I will accept any additional names that you wish to be placed on the ballot between now and Monday, November 18, 2019, at 5:00PM. If you wish to place a name on the ballot, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

There will be no meeting tonight of the PWA Board. The next meeting will be the meeting on November 25 at 6:00 pm at the Chancery Building, 300 North Lamar, Oxford. Thank you!
Good evening. It’s come to my attention that some clarification needs to be made regarding the annual meeting.
It’s Monday November 25 at 6:00 pm at the Lafayette County Chancery Court Building.
Various things will be addressed at the meeting. In addition to regular business topics, which an agenda will be posted by November 18, there will be an election for two Board positions. These are currently held by Jason Butts and John Davis, who both will be seeking re-election to those spots. And as of now this Board has been advised of no other person wishing to place his/her name on the ballot. The contact numbers for those individuals are listed on Punkin Water’s website.
Proxies will be taken, and it is acceptable to give your proxy to either someone on the Board or another member of PWA, but we’d request that all proxies gathered be turned over to Mark Woods at Daniel Coker Law Firm by Tuesday afternoon November 12. His office number is 662-232-8979 if you need directions.
If you have an interest in serving on the Board, please contact Jason at 662-816-1871 or myself at 662-816-5700 so we can get you on the ballot. We can then also post some bio information here and the website for other members to see. This makes for a smoother election process and we would like to have that info by Monday November 11.
This is an important meeting to attend. In addition to the election, financial matters will be discussed, proposed changes to Bylaws, and other important matters will be brought up. Repeating, an agenda will be posted by November 18.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact any Board member, numbers on the website
November 7: All proxies must be turned in by Monday November 11 to be counted for the upcoming annual meeting. Thank you.
Starting at 9:00PM on October 29 until 2:00AM October 31, PWA will be flushing lines in the following locations: County Roads 269, 271, 270, 421, 419, 470, 409 and 405, as well as Highway 6 between County Roads 271 and 421. You should expect to see low pressure during flushing and brown water for up to 48 hours after flushing is complete. There is no immediate health hazard. Run outside faucets 10-15 minutes to help clear brown water in pipes.
Flushing of lines in the Lakes community will begin at 9 pm tonight until complete. Discoloring of water may occur. Thank you for your patience
Per the PSC 100 percent completion, we will begin flushing water lines tonight after 9 pm in the areas of Southerland Drive, north end of Lakes Drive North, Spring Lake Cove, and Rock Springs Drive Brown water may occur because of the vigorous flushing Thank you

Update from tonight’s meeting:
Wow, what a productive meeting Punkin Water had tonight! I’m excited to post some things that we accomplished tonight at our monthly meeting.
First, the Board approved a Merchant Processing Agreement with Trustmark. This will allow our members to pay their monthly bills online or have a monthly draft option for an automatic deduction from your account. There will be a small 3% processing fee, however, for the transaction and it will be added at the time of your transaction. Look for everything to be in place within approximately two weeks and then click to pay!
Next, the Punkin Water Board voted to approve the City of Oxford agreement to have Oxford provide us with a supplemental source of water. Our attorney, Mark Woods, has been working diligently on getting us more favorable terms for this agreement and we appreciate all of his efforts. After complete execution of the Agreement, the funding process will begin, contacting contractors for bids for installation of the new line and metering equipment we will need, and we will be well on our way to having a new source of water to help with Punkin Water needs for our customers. Look for updates as we go listing details of costs and other advancements in this project.
Next, let me remind everyone of our annual meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, November 25, 2019, at the Chancery Court Building in Oxford. We have two Directors positions open, the ones currently occupied by Jason Butts, our President, and John Davis. If you want to throw your name in the hat to join us as a Director and have your name placed on the ballot, please contact us quickly! Time is of the essence. If you have a proxy form you need to get to us, the deadline for returning proxies for the meeting is Monday, November 11. Please join us for this meeting!
It’s been a productive year for Punkin Water with the completion of the 415 Project, the implementation of a new flushing plan, trying to get our financial ducks in a row to make things more convenient for you, our members, and a decision to execute the City of Oxford contract. It hasn’t always been a smooth process, but we stand ready to serve you and our door is open for your suggestions, questions, and, yes, even complaints. Remember, this is your association, and feel free to contact us at any time.
Thanks so much!
