Motion seconded by Councilmember Denison and carried. The funds will be used to purchase trees.
5. JIM CONOVER - Request For Additional Water Meter
Councilmember Piccolo reported that Jim Conover, 304 North 500 East, has requested an additional water meter at his residence. He is presently connected on 2nd North and feels the water pressure is insufficient for his needs. The Tamllos residence, which is located behind his home, has a high pressure system. He would like permission to hook on to this high pressure system, which is about 80' north of his property line. Paul Wheeler, Street Supervisor, has measured Mr. Conover's current pressure between 45 and 50 Lbs. The pressure at the Tamllos resident is approximately 90 Lbs. Mr. Conover has agreed to pay for all expenses. However, one drawback is that the connection on 2nd North would have to be terminated. A lateral that is left stagnant can easily freeze and cause future street damage.
Mr. Conover was at the meeting and spoke on his behalf. He is willing to pay all expenses. However, if this connection would benefit others, perhaps they could share in the cost. Councilmember Piccolo reported that estimated costs are between $2,500 to $3,000. This figure does not include terminating the lateral. Councilmember Piccolo will continue to work with Mr. Wheeler for firm costs and the feasibility of the request.
