Despite recent rainfall in the area, the Maysville Lake is still reeling from last year’s severe drought, prompting the Maysville Town Board and Municipal Authority to continue the odd-even water conservation efforts implemented last year.
Maysville Water Superintendent Steve Dobson reported to board members Monday night during their regular monthly meeting that the city’s lake level is still two feet below normal.
In light of the situation, board members voted to continue the water rationing efforts and placed no time limit on how long the conservation plan would last.
Board members also approved several budgetary items during Monday night’s meeting including the acceptance of the 2012-2013 Budget, which begins in July.
In other business, Town Board members approved a pay raise for Robert Dunkin, a part-time police officer. Dunkin’s pay was raised from $8 per hour to $9 per hour.
Board members took no action on repairing potholes in some of the streets in town due to a lack of funds.
The Board adopted several policies for the Maysville Police Department on Monday night.
In the Maysville Municipal Authority meeting, trustees approved a motion to allow Paul Arnold to volunteer time and equipment to mow the lagoon area.
