Flagstaff City Council to Re-vote on Drinking Water for Snow Making

After voting against the use of drinking water for snow making at the Snowbowl ski lodge (see September 3, press release), the Flagstaff city council will be re-voting on the issue this Tuesday.

If you are in Flagstaff please consider attending this important meeting:

Tuesday  September 7, 5:30 pm
@ the City Council Chambers
Located at City Hall, Rt. 66 & Humphries

If you are unable to make the flagstaff meeting your input is still important!
Please consider calling or e-mailing the council!

Here is the agenda item pertaining to the Peaks:

[7.] M. Consideration of Motion for Reconsideration of Substitute Water Sale Agreement with the Arizona Snowbowl: Recovered reclaim water or reclaimed water.

RECOMMENDED ACTION:
(1) Move to reconsider the substitute water sale agreement with the Arizona Snowbowl.

[7.] N. Consideration of Substitute Water Sale Agreement with the Arizona Snowbowl: Recovered reclaim water or reclaimed water.

RECOMMENDED ACTION:
If the motion in Item M is successful, then the Council may choose or amend one of the following options:

(1) Approve the substitute agreement with the Snowbowl to use either directly delivered or indirectly delivered reclaimed water contingent upon the Snowbowl’s commitment to one of the two delivery options.

(2) Leave the original agreement in place and provide directly delivered reclaimed water; or

(3) Develop a new agreement to use indirect delivered reclaimed water only.

At the end of last meeting:

You can read a press release about how the City Council just voted on Thursday Sept. 2nd to keep the current contract with Snowbowl in place, which meant no drinking water. The vote was 5-2 with Presler and Brewster against and Babbott, Barotz, Overton, White, and Evans in favor of keeping the contract in place.
