Some businesses will see increases in the fall, ranging from about 1 percent for mo- tels to more than 13 percent for business offices. Others, such as restaurants, will see their bills dip about 4 percent this year. But, thanks to a decision by the board of directors, busi- nesses that use a lot of water to irrigate their lawns may not see increases as large as they originally thought. That's because, while cus- tomers' meters are showing they use a lot of water, the same meters also show that the customers are sending the used water to the sewer. In reality, the water is only being used for irrigation, which does not directly affect the sewer plant. As a result, the board of di- rectors voted to bill those cus- tomers on a flat rate for sew- er use, basing it on their typi- cal sewer bills for the months of November to March, when lawn watering is minimal. The plan will be formalized later this month with a law, which will not go into effect for 30 days after its approval.

Farnell said donations can be directed to the bank or the Lions Club. Lions Club President Dave Olson said the scholarship is a fitting tribute to Jacks, who was 55. "Bill Jacks accomplished a lot in his life. He was very successful in his professional life," Olson said. "He did not let his disability get in his way.
