Minutes from the 5/14/2019 City Council Meeting have been uploaded to the Minutes page.
1. A $3.45 surcharge will be added to every water bill starting July 1 (so will first appear on the bill printed at the end of July). This is required by DENR and will cover the cost of the $178,000 water tower loan. By collecting the surcharge early, we can prepay on the loan and reduce the overall amount of interest we will owe. Water Tower construction is expected in the summer of 2020.
2. It would be a huge help to me if water bill payments and bill stubs were paper-clipped together rather than in an envelope. It takes a lot less time to remove a paperclip than it does to open and dispose of an envelope. Plus, the envelopes generate a lot of extra trash. Paper clips are available inside the drop box. Pull down on the door and a plastic box is on the left with paper clips in it.
3. Quite a few changes to the City Office hours are coming up due to the end of school and numerous Finance Officer training classes. Check the city website home page (BELOW) for those updates as they were too numerous to list on voicemail.
Congratulations to the Montrose High School Class of 2019!
