Sewer Moratorium up date: at a regular scheduled meeting Monday August 8 2016, of the water & sewer commission the following motion was approved.

Motion: Rob Lemansky makes a motion to extend the Moratorium to August 6, 2018, subject to the fact, that it can be modified by the Commission within these two (2) years. The purpose of this Motion is to orderly and fairly, allocate the prescribed capacity in the following manner and amounts: The capacity is 100,000 gallons per day of residential like sewerage. 50,000 gallons per day to be reserved for residential use, those residents within the current sewer area; and 50,000 gallons per day to be reserved for commercial and industrial growth. To qualify, for the commercial-industrial availability of 50,000 gallons per day, no one applicant will be allowed to request more than 10,000 gallons per day of capacity, without approval by the Commission. Residential, commercial, and industrial applicants, not within the service area can be reviewed by the Commission. The Commission has the right to review and modify this Moratorium at any time. This Motion shall remain in effect until August 6, 2018, or when capacity is reached, if sooner. Seconded by Paul Gagner. Vote: Unanimous.
