The members of the Town Water Conservation Committee wish to co- sponsor the Third Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest with FGUA for the Villages Elementary School students. MaryAnn Krisovitch, the Town’s contracted Water Resource Coordinator, and Michelle Harris, FGUA Representative, have coordinated with the Villages Elementary School teachers for another Annual W.C. Poster Contest for grades 1, 2, and 3. The Town and FGUA will fund equal amounts for the art supplies. Prizes will be coordinated through donations and funds from the Utilities Water Conservation Promotional Ad Campaign budget. Students with winning entries will be invited to the Town Commission meeting in April, which coincides with Water Conservation Month.
