Results from the March meeting are found here. A special meeting was held on March 29th to vote on the DOE water contract. The results of that meeting, including a disclosure that residential and commercial rates are set to increase in the coming months, are discussed here.

Though I am not always able to respond to every communication, I welcome your questions and feedback. Feel free to share these updates with anyone who may be interested in staying abreast of city issues.
