  • The El Dorado City Commission was told the city of Augusta asked to have another year of no reset on their water contract during their meeting Monday.
    Augusta's contract is supposed to reset if they use more than a specific amount of water, resetting to the new higher level.
    Because El Dorado is now Augusta’s sole source of water, City Manager Herb Llewellyn said it would have reset the last two years, but they agreed not to do that. It would reset this year if the city doesn’t allow a no reset again.
    Commissioner David Chapin said he would like to have some actual numbers on the water.
    “This is still about being a good neighbor and not gouging our neighbors in a tough time,” Commissioner Shane Krause said.
    “That works both ways,” Chapin said. “We don’t want to get gouged either. That is why I want to see the numbers.”
    More information will be brought back to the commission.
