Wade Petteys, owner of 227 Main St & 214 Center St, wrote the Board requesting a reimbursement of $4,029.87 in water/sewer rent for a hose bib left running and a plumbing leak.  Trustee Halliday stated the Board should have discretion to amend these billings when water did not enter the sewer.  Atty Buettner has submitted draft changes to the sewer law setting guidelines property owners can follow to provide documentation of special instances.  Atty Buettner suggested the Board consider amending the water law in a similar fashion if adopting the sewer changes.
