2008 – 2009 Officers Judy Savage – President Scot Atwood – Vice President Liz Wallbaum – Secretary/Treasurer

In the last two weeks, you may have seen the Wallbaum family around town quite a bit. So far, they have replaced about two hundred water meters of the six hundred scheduled to be replaced. Already, several people have noticed their water usage going up, sometimes quite a bit. Older water meters under read the gallons going through them, and the older the meter, the more they under report. Fortunately for water customers, but unfortunately for the village, customers have been getting a lot of free water. With the increase in water rates on your bill this month, it makes more sense than ever to conserve water. Install low flow toilets and shower heads, and wash only full loads of laundry or dishes. Speaking of toilets put some food coloring in the tank. If any coloring seeps into the bowl, you have a leak. When changing water in a fish aquarium, recycle that water onto house plants. Also, rethink how much you really need to water your yard or garden. As a guide as to how much water a household uses, expect one to two thousand gallons per person in the house. Although that is a wide range, conservation efforts will keep you to the lower end of that range. - Mayor Dave Handy
