Item V Bain asked Hart about the agreement in this item. Hart explained that it was to enable an emergency interconnect similar to the arrangements with City of Round Rock and Jonah SUD. He said this agreement was not a bulk water sale. He said it would be used for emergencies only, subject to our ability to provide service, with the same rate to be charged to Chisholm as is charged to Round Rock and Jonah. Item R Wood asked why the computers to be purchased were not coming from Power Computing. Gray replied that Power Computing sells an entirely different operating system than what the City uses at this time. She added that in the next few years, the systems will be interchangeable. Item O Hoyt asked where the components would be used. Briggs replied that these components need to be put on the meters that don't have them presently in order to be compatible with the Customer Choice and Control System. Item Z Vincent asked about a timeline. Kingma responded that it would be over a period of 15 years, with on-going traffic impact analysis being done. Hart explained that part of the reason for separating and accelerating is because the site to be used for a school needs to be acted upon as quickly as possible. Wood asked when D. B. Wood Road would be under construction. Briggs responded that because of the bridge, the design would be complete in 1998, with construction to begin in 1999.
