The contractor for the water and sewer project is anticipating the water line change over in that area tomorrow. Janet Prosser expressed concern with a letter of December 30, 2011 explaining the water would be shut off during the installation of the vault and valves and that it would be turned back on if the necessary signatures were received on the document. She requested a continuation of water service during a period of time for further discussion of the agreement and an extension to sign the agreement up until January 31, 2012.

Councilman Dickson explained the purpose of the utility license is to allow the Subdivision's equipment within the Town's right-of-way and that the urgency is due to the construction installation schedule.
