Re: NOW mini-mansions and disgust

Zem: We are still in the assessment phase...getting a municipal water
system would require, by town ordinance, a vote passed by majority that
okays this. And upfront, it will be made clear to everyone that it will
not be optional...if the vote passes then everyone will be connected to
city water. They can maintain their current wells if they wish to do so,
but that will be in addition to being connected to city service, not
instead of...I'm not sure how we are going to convince everyone that
spending in excess of a million dollars for a town of less than 700
people will be worth it, but I guess we'll see how it goes.
