A public hearing and adoption of the ordinance are required to stay in compliance.  “You’re seeing this in a lot towns, where it’s just a slight change when they came through and did the flood plain studies,” said Griffith, “So it’s not a major deal.  It’s kind of an are that’s undeveloped and has a creek and stuff in it.  So it shouldn’t affect ours, but it keeps us in compliance with the national flood insurance.”  The hearing will be held Thursday, December 27th, at 6:45.

Council also decided to start buying C02 in bulk.  They used to purchase 50 pound cylinders, but will now get about eight tons at a time.  “It makes it easier for the guys,” said Griffith, “Don’t have to handle the cylinders, hopefully improve the quality of water a little bit, and it cuts some costs after we get the initial expense of getting it hooked up,” said Griffith.
