Ken Smith – Presented a concern regarding the Lecompton United Methodist Church water bill and meter reading. The water bill indicated the church used 17,000 gal of water over the course of a month. Ken decided to monitor the meter for leaks. In the course of a week the Church only used 400 gal. The City Clerk indicated that the City Superintendent could change out the old meter for a new meter then send in the old meter to be tested for accuracy. If the meter tests within allowable limits the Church will pay for the meter replacement. If the meter tests bad, then the City will adjust the last bill and no payment for the meter will be needed.
