1) Tim Arnold was here to ask why council said no to his application for a second water meter. He said that he was following the advise of his attorney, he was video taping the councils reply. Council said that for now they are not letting anyone have a second meter. Sunrise Engineering did a report and found that if everyone who has a meter used their allocated 60,000 gallons there is not enough water coming into the system. So for now no more second water meters are being allowed. After discussion Tim suggested Town get legal council, which the Town Council said they were doing.
