Stan Dugger informed the council of a program that Cayuga is using where the customer purchases a meter to be attached to an outdoor hydrant, allowing the use of water for filling pools and watering gardens without having to pay sewer rates. Larry has been looking into such a program and Mr. Dugger's information will be passed on to him.
Rick Royale asked that all sump pumps hooked into the sewer system be unhooked due to the high volume of water the plant receives during storms, causing more costs to the customers from wear and tear on the plant, and the use of more chemicals.
