The ERC determines costs of sewer services for homes and businesses. For residential homes the ERC is 1. For resort buildings the ERC varies according to services offered. The July meeting will discuss possibly changing the way those ERC numbers are calculated.

In addition, Mayor Dave Kavanaugh said the council is in the process of discussing how to fill the vacant city administrator position left by Brenda Thomes, who resigned in March. The city has not decided whether to hire a new administrator or a clerk/treasurer. The council was to meet Tuesday, April 8, to discuss how to proceed to fill the vacancy.

In the meantime, Thomes’ former responsibilities are being managed by interim administrator Tim Moore.
