11/21/15  The need for a water and sewer rate increase was presented by Public Works Director Dan Gaillet during a workshop after Tuesday’s Council meeting.  Sun Herald reporter, Mary Perez, summarized the presentation quite well in her article a few days later.  The Water & Sewer fund is an enterprise account and by law must generate enough revenue to cover the expenses associated with that fund.  It’s possible that this matter may appear as early as  December 1 Council agenda.

10/28/15  Balmoral Avenue Project Update… Design issues caused a delay of several weeks; the completion date is still projected to be the end of December.  Curb construction was underway today when I viewed the site.
