It has been some years since Diamond City has conducted a rate study so in the latter part of 2018 Diamond City partnered with Communities Unlimited to do a sewer and water rate study at no cost to the City. Michelle Viney, Community Environmental Management Specialists with Communities Unlimited was assigned to work with diamond City. She and Jerry Kopke attended that last Council meeting in February where she presented the study to the Mayor, Council and the citizens. If you click on the link below you will find the complete study completed by Communities Unlimited. If you have questions please call Steve at City Hall at 870.422.7212 with any questions you may have.

Just recently a district judge ruled that the OMRPWA has to comply with the mandate. There are two sets of minutes attached that are meetings of the OMRPWA Board of Directors. You need to read these minutes if you are concerned with this mandate.
