On August 15, 2017 the City Council approved Resolution No. 2017-044 declaring an emergency condition and approving the execution of a contract for water treatment facilities.  Section four of Resolution No. 2017-044 calls for a report describing the status of emergency circumstances to be provided by the City Manager at each City Council meeting until either the installation of the treatment facilities has been completed or the emergency conditions cease to exist.



The following is a report on the status of the emergency circumstances as outlined in the attached Resolution No. 2017-049:
