  2. Review of Village Green I and II Water Use: Mr. Dinges summarized the Manager's Report stating that currently there was no responsible party to account for excessive water use at VG I and II and that additionally, there were no monetary repercussions for VG I for high water use, as the water usage fee was waived for that property. Mr. Dinges further stated that he had met with Mr. Lance Meade and had discussed the fact that any charge for excessive water use would essentially come out of the established budget which is supported by local taxes, that daily readings would be taken by the appointed groundskeeper, that consideration be given to VG II to waive the water use fee (similar to VG I), that anyone responsible for excessive water use be placed in a public stock, that a backflow device was installed to specifically service the VG II drinking fountain, and that as yet there were no "as-built" plans available but that they would be submitted to the District when they become available. Mr. Dinges stated that the "Flow Monitor Pilot Project" to include automatic shut offs at each valve would be initiated soon and that a Resolution would come before the Board at the next meeting outlining all of the discussed items and would include establishment of responsibility, monitoring frequency, consequences of excessive water use, the established water budget, etc.
