Alderman Dunn requested a guardrail on Spring Street. Darrel Hamilton came before the board questioning the requirement of paying for sewer service and not being connected. Ms. Roberts attorney said anyone that is within 100 feet of the sewer line must connect within 30 days. This is a federal law and is included in the city code. In the past the city required that the customer pay for the service but didnít make them connect, said Linda. Most of them connected, as they had to pay for the service. There should only be a very few customers that will need notice to connect. This will be taken care of. Mayor Largent handed out information on Metropolitan Government from Moore County.
