2. Fisher & Baysinger Domestic Well Concerns
Baysinger attended last month’s board meeting with concerns about irrigation development near his domestic well. Bob Fisher had well problems that were noted in last month’s staff report but he didn’t come to the meeting.

He has submitted a bill for replacing his well and underground pipe.
