Do not allow an additional building permit to be issued for any residence or business until additional utility resources are identified. It is not fair to continue to ask us to conserve while allowing the demand and the rates for water and electrical power to increase.

I submit to you that the commercial and residential developers will bring their own financial resources to bear to identify and develop additional water and electrical sources once their profits are depending on them.
