Board closes out year with fees, grant
Ongoing water issues and youth outreach were the two Christmas gifts waiting for the Board of Aldermen when they met on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
After approving the minutes from two previous meetings, the board discussed a policy on sprinklers and water disconnections.
Mayor Chuck Cariker said that town officials had been asked if customers could disconnect meters at their homes and with their sprinkler systems during the winter. Cariker said the town charges a $50 reconnect fee in situations when the water has been turned off for nonpayment.
Alderman Eloise Carson asked if customers paid a fee for disconnecting service and reconnecting it.
