Lundquist asked if collection of the sur-charge could continue and the funds placed in reserve to be used for water tower repair or replacement or improvements to the water distribution system. Currie informed the Council that they would need to approve an ordinance to continue to collect the sur-charge and designate the funds for water distribution repair/replacement.
