The commission received an update from Moore Engineering regarding the progress on the water, sewer, and storm drain project as well as the water supply project. Moore had several items for the commission to review and give approval on in order for the Moore to continue the progress on the water, sewer, and storm drain project. The commission reviewed and approved all the items as requested by Moore.
Midco informed the commission that their access channel would be run by KNDK in the near future. Currently, it is run by United Communications, but due to some issues that have arisen, the decision to transfer the channel to KNDK for operation has been made. The commission felt this would be a good move for the channel.
