<br />17:6925 <br /> <br />various methods set forth in detail on the recapitulation summary. <br />It was the consensus of the City Council that a plan be adopted at <br />this time which would raise the necessary revenue for operation, <br />mainten~nce and capital projects for this year; that after the <br />completion of the updating of the report on capital project needs of <br />the water system that further considerations be undertaken by the <br />Council. Mayor Forman then called for a poll of the Councilmen's <br />preference in the proposed plans: <br /> <br />Councilman Butterworth stated in part that he was categorically <br />against raising water rates for the purpose of discharging the City's <br />charge for the Metropolitan Water District assessment, but since the <br />rest of the Council had voted otherwise to require that the assessment <br />be met from water revenue that in his opinion Plan 'A' was the most <br />acceptable and least burdensome plan from the standpoint of the <br />homeowner and consequently be favored Plan 'A'. (He later voted with <br />the majority for Modified Plan 'H'.) <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Councilman Hage favored Plan 'B' and stated in part that he would <br />like to see more of the charge borne by the actual water user rather <br />than on a standby basis; that in his opinion this is not the time to <br />place it on the tax bill but wait for developments during the year. <br /> <br />Councilman Arth favored Plan 'B' with some modifications as he would <br />rather see the water rate increased by l~ per 100 cubic feet and <br />reduce the minimum thereby deferring any increase at this particular <br />time. <br /> <br />Councilman Considine favored Modified Plan 'H' and stated in part <br />that as long as the Council has already determined that the charge <br />should be raised through water revenue that in his opinion most of <br />the charge should be left in the water billing structure so the <br />people may follow what the City is doing and understand the logic <br />behind it; that if there is need for additional funds in the future <br />there is still the water rate to work with or go the ad valorem tax <br />route. <br /> <br />Mayor Forman favored Modified Plan 'H' and felt strongly that the <br />charge should be borne by the water users and not placed on the <br />property taxes; that during the coming year developments may alter <br />the situation. <br /> <br />Whereupon it was MOVED by Councilman Considine, seconded by Council- <br />man Butterworth and carried on a 3 to 2 vote as follows that the City <br />Council adopt Modified Plan 'H' for the ensuing year. (Ordinance <br />No. 1333 INTRODUCED later in the meeting - see Page 3.) <br /> <br />AYES: <br />NOES: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Butterworth, Considine, Forman <br />Councilmen Arth, Hage <br />None <br /> <br />1 <br /> <br />OCCUPANCY <br />PERMIT <br />WINSLOW <br /> <br />Pursuant to instructions of the City Council of December 6, 1966, the <br />Director of Public Works and the Fire Chier made detailed inspections <br />of a new structure nearing completion at 47 E.
