Water rates were increased by 2%.  Mill levies, used to calculate revenue from property taxes, were kept flat.  Fees for "Other Charges" were simplified.


In August, 2019, the Metro Board eliminated long-term debt on their balance sheet by paying off the remaining loan balance of $134,319 stemming from the well drilling project that was completed in 2015.

Early in the summer of 2019, the Board took the 100,000 gallon water tank out of service and refurbished it at a cost of $88,165.  Of that amount, $35,341 was for a new roof membrane and $52,824 was for concrete repairs.  These refurbishments extended the useful life of the tank into the future.  Work on the 100,000 gallon tank was completed by September, 2019.

Later in the summer of 2019, the Board took the 250,000 gallon water tank out of service and repaired four concrete pillars inside the tank that support its roof at a cost of $15,266.  This repair work corrected a structural deficiency that was first detected in 2015, shortly after the water tank was put into service.   Work on the 250,000 gallon tank was completed by September, 2019.
