Water Hauling; Lake Cleanup; Blue Signs July 29, 2009
 2500 Gallon Storage TankWATER HAULING RECOMMENDATION
(Dear e-News;) 
With the drought, I contacted my old standbys for water delivery to supplement my meager well production.  I found this:
Chinatown is taking no new customers "until the drought is over". "Waterboy" and others did not return calls.
  We finally got a real person on the phone at Hills of Texas Bulk Water of Dripping Springs (554-6451).  My assistant, Stacy, talked to Hank, the owner or manager, and was told that next deliveries were two weeks out ... not an option for me.  Using her best sweet Cajun voice and declaring an emergency, she was able to arrange delivery of 2,200 gallons for $140. You might want to pass this information on via email to our Volente residents. They might prove to be an excellent alternative to Chinatown and others.

NEED A SIGN? - LET US DO IT!
We appreciate the do-it-yourself attitude of Volente residents, like the one who added the address of their new home to an existing address sign. But really, we are HAPPY to install reflective blue signs at no charge for new homes, ones we missed, or to replace damaged or missing signs. The signs are funded by our Emergency Services District 14 and produced and installed by volunteers within the Volente VFD Auxiliary.
