Chet and Stephanie Clark addressed council on the water bill for 112 Zihlman St. The Clarks inherited the house and found a past due water bill of $1716.93 pending.

Mr. Marcin said that since the owners died a couple of years ago, the six month window for a lien to be placed on the estate is past. As part of the discussion, no explanation on how this situation has been allowed to occur was provided. Referred to COTW.

Aaron Patterson suggested that whenever poles are damaged in the future that they be replaced with cheaper non-matching poles.
