Water & Sewer Commission meeting last night could not proceed, due to a lack of a quorum. It was reported however that there is a 1/28/13 hearing before the Appellate Tax Board on the Gulf Resources (the Medfield Commons Carwash) appeal of its failure to pay its contested sewer bill of about $45,000. Gulf argues that its water does not go into the sewer. Town argues that it just allocates half the cost of the combined water and sewer system to water and half to sewer, and does not allow others (such as those using water to water their lawns to have separate meters for the irrigation water as other towns do) to just pay the water portion.
W&S will meet 1/24/13 at 7PM.
