President Heideman recognized Maintenance Supervisor Russ Schoon who reported on the following:

President Heideman reported Jackie Glenn, Utility Clerk compiled a list of water accounts with due dates older than June 21st. Two of the accounts had their water service terminated and have never paid their delinquent bills. One of the accounts recently had additional people and children move in, and there was concern expressed about no running water. Russ Schoon was directed to check if the water service had been turned on by the residents and if so, to shut it off again. If the service has not been turned on, the Health Department will be called due to health concerns resulting from no running water service.
