Owens attended many of the organizational meetings.

Danville has signed a non-binding commitment to purchase the minimum amount allowable, which is 1 million gallons per day. The annual cost would be about $450,000.

The water commission also asked that the city contribute $2,500 to allow Bluegrass Area Development District to act as staff for the commission and to pay attorney fees. The utilities who are expected to buy more water capacity have been asked to contribute $5,000 a piece.

Danville Commissioner Terry Crowley asked that Owens get a budget for the money.
