Water loss: 10.6% Water had to be dumped when the water tower was hooked back up for service so this figure is rather deceiving. A sewer pump went bad. After doing some investigating the pump works, the cable must be bad. Utility Service Company has not sent a final inspection report on the water tower renovation at this time. They have sent a bill for the second installment of the contract which the City disagrees with. The Aldermen were told we would receive the first bill at completion of the tower and the second bill the following year. Christie gave Attorney

The first step is we make several state and federal regulatory agencies aware of the proposed project. They can then weigh in if there is concern. We do this by sending each agency a letter, project description, maps, photos, etc. They are then given 30 days to respond. Up until last year this thirty days was considered satisfactory. However, the people that review the reviews now say we have to send out another letter reminding them they have 30 days. This means another 30 day comment period. We are now in that period. Thus far the corps of engineers have a question, but that is it." MO-KAN will contact us when they know more. 2. Web Site ­Tabled until the next regular scheduled meeting. 3. Ordinances ­ a.
