BOONE, Iowa—Boone City Administrator Luke Nelson says discussions about establishing a “Leak Protection Program” for Boone utility customers are on going and in fact have even changed since the last Council meeting. Nelson says the original proposal would have applied for residential properties but now discussions have expanded to working with other customers. One question that keeps coming up is why not let customers opt into the program instead of making them opt out. Nelson says he prefers the opting out so that people that fail to hear or act on the opportunity, will have protection. Nelson the Council has not adopted the program yet and probably could until late spring.
