((brian loftus)) the leaders of the vallley are starting their week with us here on 8 news now good day.

((rod woodbury)) >> actually this us our water line debt. it's the last debt we have in boulder city. been paying off golf course debt and other things like that. 'kdf ami to us that we're finally down to the last one. it's a big one. it's 28 million dollars. but allowing us to use funds from the capital improvement fund will help us accellerate that. if we put on another 750 thousand dollars towards it a year, we're saving 3 million in interest. we're hoping we can do more than that and pay it off even sooner.

than that. for those reasons and others we need to start rethinking our growth policies, not scrapping them all together, we like our small town community, but there's good reasons to grow a little bit. i think most citizens are on board with that. ((brian loftus)) >> maybe there's a happy medium when it comes to growth so continue to explore it. ((brian loftus)) >> we were just talking before the interview, the olympics are over, school is starting so now it's time to say hello to the fall. let's get into fall festivals. planning is under (art in the park, wurstfest, chautauqua, winter art fest, etc.) any changes to the events? ((rod woodbury)) >> well i like chautauqua cause it's kind of an unknown. it's named after a city in new york but we have the scholars come in and act out the parts of prominent people. so this year i think we have jack warner, the founder of warner brothers, introduced sound to motion picture and was very revolutionary, pt barnum, the
