CITIZENS' COMMENTS
Those who signed the register were: Donald Curtis
Donald Curtis, Columbus Road. appeared this evening to question
why he is paying two times more for water service than users
inside the corporate limits. He noted that he was much closer to
the water plant than a lot of Village residents, and; that he
was assessed for that water line when it was first constructed.
It was explained to Mr. Curtis that current policy is that
no water customers will be accepted outside the village limits
in an effort to induce annexation to the Village. Further,
costs to provide water has increased due to an increase in
electric rates, a water storage tank replacement project and
other distribution projects, and that the 100% surcharge for
water consumers outside the Village was instituted to a) induce
annexation, and; b) to offset General Fund Cost for maintaining
and protecting municipal facilities in extra-jurisdictional
areas.

standpipe to be constructed. Mr. Morrow asked if this factor was
included in the 1988 budget?Manager Plunkett said yes. $40, 000.
Mr. Plunkett noted that the Village will be paying off one of
its Bond Issues in 1988 which will help. Mr. Morrow said he was
sensitive to the rate increases. Mr. Plunkett said to the average
Village user it would mean a 5. 6% increase, and overall a 4. 9%
increase in the rates with the slight decrease in the Debt
Service charge.
Mayo0r.-<E-isenberg asked Mr . Plunkett if he had amR* egt-i*-ue 6111.x-ve
pep*eR-seo- nR-e *contract with OwensC- orning. Mr. Plunkett stated
that he hasn' t started on that portion. Figures on production
costs, etc.,for 1987 are still being compiled. He said he
expects to have that information by Friday and begin on contracted
water users by then. He said the Village hopes to do more
effective metering on Denison this year and replacements meters
have been ordered. He said there are still more to check on
Denison. Mr. Eisenberg also asked Manager Plunkett if he expects
to realize a difference in new customers by this time next year.
Manager plunkett stated that he felt it was too soon to predict.
The Village will begin to see more projects once the sewer line
crosses the creek. However, everything is purely speculative at this point. Mr. Plunkett did not foresee any water rate decreases in the future.
