Johnny Shepherd spoke up that he remembered that meeting. He said that the Village needed to respond
quickly to the EPA and that CT was able to handle their demands. He asked if passing Resolution 2016-3 meant

She said that she understands it was intended to help cover the expenses
for resident’s topping off their pools throughout the summer due to evaporation
and cleaning. However, some residents
are actually using their hose and filling their entire pool. Being a pool owner herself, she said that if
you filled those same pools in any other town or had the water hauled in, you
would pay $500-$600 depending on the size of the pool. Mayor Hall said this something the Utility
