Water power plans put on back burner


During the Sept. 10 meeting, however, that language was changed to a flat rate lease payment that would be phased in over a shorter period of time. There were also several additional changes made with regard to aesthetic changes to the area. 
In light of those changes, Falling Waters LLC representative David Snyder requested that the commission table the matter until its next meeting as he had not anticipated the changes and desired a chance to meet with staff before an agreement was solidified.
During Tuesday’s meeting, Brinson informed the board that Snyder and Falling Waters LLC were still not ready to come before the board for final consideration and had requested an additional 30 days with which to solidify their final proposal.
“Since the last meeting, I did meet with David Snyder and the project engineer, and we went over the agreement and I explained to them why those changes were made, and what the financial impact was,” Brinson said. “The engineer said he wanted more time to go over the business plan and make some changes possibly.”
Due to the fact that the proposal had already been tabled twice before, commission member Jeremy Stutsman suggested that the commission vote to postpone the request indefinitely rather than table the request for a third time.
“If we table it, we have to bring it back at our next meeting,” Stutsman said. “If we postpone it, it can be when they bring it back to us.”

The commission agreed, and a motion was raised and approved to postpone the request until such a time as either the commission or Falling Waters LLC is ready to review it once again.
