COMMITTEE REPORTS: The Mayor explained that there is an ordinance in place that holds landlords responsible for water/sewer obligations to the Village.  The Troyer bill issue was discussed further.  The Fiscal Administrator has calculated the costs incurred, and established a five-year average of expenses against usage. A $329.38 credit was determined.  This credit will be offered to the landlord.  The rest of the bill will have to be an issue between the landlord and the tenant per the Village Solicitor, the Mayor explained.  The Fiscal Administrator will give the formal notification of the credit this week.
