The commission discussed the upcoming informational meeting concerning the proposed water project and ordinance with Northeast Regional Water District (NRWD) General Manager Gordon Johnson.

The commission and Johnson discussed the format of the meeting and agreed that each would stay in contact leading up to the meeting and hold a short meeting to go over what each will present.

The commission and Johnson agreed that this upcoming meeting could not be run like the meeting held a year ago in which the two engineering firms dictated the meeting. The engineering firms, Moore Engineering for the City of Langdon and Advanced Engineering and Environmental Systems (AE2S) for NRWD, will be present to answer any technical questions. The main presentations concerning the water project and the back-up options that the city has should the project be voted down will be presented by Johnson and Langdon City Commissioner Chuck Downs.
