This meeting was to discuss the challenges that we have as far as meeting basic maintenance and operation needs, looking at long-term sustainability and what it costs to maintain our infrastructure as well as building a revenues reserve in case we have emergencies. The Abrahams Group put all of the numbers through a model and came up with recommendations for wastewater and water rate increases as far as what those numbers should be and where we should be at. Another special meeting will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
