Feedback clarified

The City of Grand Forks clarifies its motion on accepting feedback on water meter project options.

City water utility customers can indeed submit feedback on more than what was identified in a consulting firm’s report.

A City of Grand Forks ad in last week’s Gazette said feedback would be accepted on the report compiled by consulting firm Urban Systems regarding water meter project options; however, the motion made at the June 15 Committee of the Whole (COTW) meeting of city council actually said feedback would be invited “regarding collection of more options.”

Specifically, the motion reads: “Resolved that the COTW receive and refer back to staff and public, who are city water utility customers, for written input of no more than 500 words per letter, with one submission per person, regarding collection of more options; and, further, bring forward to the July 20 meeting and to be received by no later than June 25 at 4 p.m. and clearly titled ‘Water Meter Input’ to or hand delivered to the front desk of City Hall.”

The city released this statement: “The City of Grand Forks apologizes for any confusion the previous ad may have caused. We are looking forward to receiving your feedback regarding more options for water meters.”
