City starts audit negotiations, stops water discussion

To City Administrator Jeff Looney's own detriment the council shut down a discussion regarding commercial master meters for local RV parks and apartment complexes. Place 5 Councilman – and mayor candidate – Kenny Hughes said “for the council to even continue considering this would be a disservice” to citizens.

“I've researched and talked to people,” explained Hughes. “This would effect two elderly apartments and an economically challenged apartment.”

MJ and John Alford – former owners of Westwood Utility Corporation – asked the council to rethink this decision in February based on research done on their part. The Alford's own Primrose RV Park on U.S. 84 in Fairfield and said in a previous meeting that their “water supply doesn't overly burden the City of Fairfield.”

MJ also said last year the RV park used 216,200 gallons of water for a total cost of $2,357.
