There is still no decision from Grand Forks council on how to move forward on the water meters.
About 70% of the devices are installed but council has decided to give the community yet more time to give input on what to do with those who refuse a meter and what an opt-out option might look like and cost residents.
About 250 homeowners are holding out.
Here’s the city’s Communications Officer Sarah Winton.
Such is the political and legal mess around Grand Forks council that Julia Butler – who is being taken to court for conflict of interest on the meters – is still taking part in discussions.
But mayor Frank Konrad is recusing himself as the city’s legal team has previously advised that he may also be in conflict.
