Another important piece of business at this year's annual membership meeting on Sept. 17 was the vote on changes to the Bylaws. The Bylaws changes passed with a 2/3 vote. The vote was:  184 Yay to 57 Nay. Entranosa's staff will be busy in the upcoming months preparing financial impact statements for our entire membership, mostly due to the termination of the septic program.
