Questionable water quality early this year resulted in not only a citywide boil water order, but expenses totalling almost $316,000.
Coun. Lee Atkinson motioned to have the expenses come forth this month, with city administration providing a rundown of expenses.
Advertising and media cost the city $45,667, city personnel costs were $74,173, consultants were $42,564, divers were $23,400, laboratory testing cost $68,287, parts and supplies were $23,431, robots were $15,975, vehicles and equipment were $5,079 and miscellaneous costs were $16,872.
With the boil water incident expenses unforeseen, associated expenses have been absorbed into the operation, a report by city manager of capital planning and strategic services Scott Golding reads.
