The community forum on the city’s public water and sewer infrastructure is cancelled. It had been scheduled for January 21st.
Back in November, we reached out to all city elected officials and other local representatives to invite them to participate in the forum. We hoped that elected officials would attend and participate in an open forum to help residents and businesses learn more the city’s infrastructure needs and options. Unfortunately no elected officials RSVP’d.
Hopefully the city will organize its own town hall forum to speak directly to residents and businesses about city plans for fixing the water and sewer system. Given the emergency situation we faced in December, now is the time to start involving ratepayers in the development of a comprehensive plan for addressing the needs of the system.
