The Mayor explained that a booster station would need to be installed and what the price was three years ago. Impact fees, availability fees, and user fees will need to be evaluated.

There appears to be some confusion on the electrical. The City agreed to pay the monthly bill, not install the electrical. The Dir. of Public Works will speak with Paul, of Paul’s electric, who volunteered to donate the electrical labor for this project. Since the power will come off a City pole – the City will have to authorize things.
