2. Your bills can be delivered via email to your inbox monthly!
3. Payments can be made with credit cards and the fee has been reduced from a $2.95 service fee down to a $2.30 service fee.
3. There is a link to the utility billing software, where you can set up and make electronic payments on our website. The link is: https://nbwater.authoritypay.com.

August Troop 315 Newsletter
Pictures are Rafting in 2018
Scouts; We are very blessed at all the things our town and troop represent. At the end of every newsletter, I end with a quote from our founder Robert Baden Powell, I do this to show that the basics in scouting are meant to have our boys grow up into productive , fine citizens who can pay it forward , showing the next generation of scouts the same courtesy that was shown them.
Planning every meeting, every camp or outing is an exciting opportunity to work with each other to see everyone’s likes or dislikes and deliver a program that has our troop large and solid. Your youth leaders are passing the torch to all the newest of scouts and for that , I am very proud of all of you. That’s what makes the adults who support and participate wanting to volunteer .
Now that the pep talk is done. I am happy all our leaders and parents are coming together at the Festival. Hard work will pay off. We do very well .

August 22. PLC meeting
Scouts, your youth leadership will need to sit down and come up with the calendar of events for this year. This need to happen so the , Then adult committee can approve and discuss program, finances, and membership at its meeting.
It’s been some time since we had one of these but adults who are registered need to schedule a meeting in early September for the items listed in the PLC meeting. I’ll discuss with Mike Julien on a date for that.
Quote from Lord Baden Powell
“Life would pall if it were all sugar; salt is bitter if taken by itself; but when tasted as part of the dish, it savours the meat. Difficulties are the salt of life.”
