No. City Council did not take this decision lightly. A public forum for input was held on November 9, 2020, to gather feedback on three options (new IRP, new water softening system, or connection to BWL). The forum was announced publicly as a public notice, on our website, and on Facebook. Public Hearings were held many times throughout the process of determining a plan, gathering research, the bidding process, etc. Residents are always welcome to sign up for public hearing notifications.
