From the Delta County Independent (Hank Lohmeyer):

Under the agreement approved by the town board on April 28, the Meadow View neighborhood will disband their private company and become direct, individual water customers of the town. Roy Fleeger, president of the pipeline company board, said, “The agreement is the result of a lot of hard work by everyone. I know that we spent at least a couple of hundred hours researching different aspects. The town was very responsive to all of our concerns, and when we explained our reasoning they agreed with us on almost every point we raised. The discussions were extremely amicable on all sides.”

Under the deal agreed to, the town will install a new pipeline to serve the neighborhood off of the West Side main line, and each of the 42 current tap owners on the Meadow View system. The town will pay half of the estimated $71,792 cost of materials for the new line. The 42 tap owners will pay the other half for materials. They will also pay installation costs, estimated at $66,800.
