Town Hall Meetings

Executive Director, Steve Swan, advised the Committee that Channel 99 has agreed to run the JWSC’s public service announcements and a display monitor is being placed in customer service with a running loop of informational subjects.

Commissioner Elliott stated he attended and spoke at the most recent RUPA meeting. He stated the new building received a lot of interest and the group was pleased upon learning it would be a profit center. Commissioner Elliott stated it is important for the Commission to take the lead in town hall meetings.

Mr. Swan updated the Committee on his recent meeting with the Board of Realtors. He discussed the current landlord program and distributed literature. Some at the meeting questioned if a line of credit could be used instead of a blanket deposit. Mr. Swan advised the Committee this would require a change to the City and County Ordinances.

Mr. Swan stated that four (4) areas have been identified where town hall meetings with residents wanting to connect to our system need to be scheduled:
• Belle Pointe
• Rose Drive
• Glyndale
• Sterling/Highway 99

Mr. Swan will set up the meetings and notifications to the residents.

There being no additional business to bring before the Committee, Chairman Dean adjourned the meeting.
