Great! Now can we water the $10,000 worth of Flowers on Main Street before they are all dead? Please? we all understand that not even the city of East Jordan wants to pay the city of East Jordan water rates. None of us do. But looks like you should just bit the over priced bullet and Turn on the water.

Can water bills still be paid the same way with the drop box then since its appointment only?
