Suggested “Speakers and Topics?”

Two Weeks until the July 13th Council Meeting.


REJECTED — We did not get on the July Council Agenda to follow-up with the Council Members on the Water Rate Fee Reduction Petition we presented in the June Council Meeting.  The City is stalling?  Waiting on a “study.”  We are uncertain?
