General Information


The annual stockholders meeting was held on March 6, 2017, with around forty present.  The President referred everyone to his report in the book.  Attorney Steerman reported on the cases that Amity is involved in and recommended that Amity continue to be proactive in all the water cases.  The Superintendent presented a slide show to go along with his report and mentioned that besides doing work to keep the whole system in shape, extensive work was done on the Satanta Canal last year.  Rebecca Nichols, the District 67 Water Commissioner gave a short statement on storage in John Martin and said it changes every day.  The lawsuit with Fort Lyon was discussed extensively.  The Board didn't want to file the lawsuit, but felt it was necessary to protect Amity's Great Plains water rights.  A new agreement was made between the companies.  The lawsuit was expensive and put a financial burden on the company.   The 2017 assessments were set at $31.00 per share.  Four resolutions were passed.  Randy Witt and Bill Wright will continue serving as directors on the Board for another three years.  Glenn Wilson presented certificates of recognition of service to Terry Howland and Kerry Wagner. The meeting concluded with lunch at the Holly Senior and Community Center.  
The Amity Board and the Fort Lyon Board's met on March 7th for their semi-annual meeting.  It started with a tour of the Fort Lyon canal from the Kicking Bird bifurcation to their headgates on the Arkansas at La Junta.  Both Boards agreed a lot of work had been done.
Amity's Great Plains water stored in Adobe has all been delivered to the Queens. 
Note that the stock transfer fee is $100.00 for the first certificate then $25.00 per certificate for all other certificates thereafter within the same transaction as long as the grantor and grantee are the same.
