PUBLIC COMMENTS, QUESTIONS & CONCERNS
Louise Kirkpatrick, Dunn Avenue, addressed the Board regarding her water connection and a potential sewer connection. Her current water connection will be replaced by the DPW since it is not deep enough to prevent freezing in the winter.

fee at 17 Dunn Avenue provided the connection is made at the same time the
water connection is replaced.
