City Council Meeting in Waltham, Massachusetts
City Council members answered questions as to why the water supply had above average amounts of bacteria in it and why it took them almost two months to inform the city residents. This meeting was held on October 9 in Waltham, Massachusetts. The residents wanted to know why a letter was sent to residents that lacked basic information about the issue. They found this bacteria problem after doing testing in August and again in September with no public notice until after the second test.
The Waltham council has asked City Engineer Stephen Casazza, who sent out the letter to the city, to appear before the entire Council during its regularly scheduled meeting time next Monday. They are hoping that he will be able to answer questions regarding the water in Waltham. Until this meeting, the departments in the city have been asked to use social media to spread the word about this.
The next City Council meeting will be held at 8 p.m. on Monday, October 15 and is open to the public, however, it is not open for comments from the public.
