    In his departmental reports, Town Manager Gene Dvornick said the service line replacement project is completed, and the town has received permission from the state Office of Drinking Water to use remaining funds to replace water meters town wide. The meters, he said, have been ordered. Also, the We Are One Georgetown survey is now available through the town's website, www.georgetowndel.com, and a door-to-door survey is scheduled for this Saturday.
    The council conducted first readings of three ordinances: one to increase the amount of time the town has to approve or reject building permits from 10 to 20 days; another that applies amendments to a conditional use; and a third to modify the town's Emergency Services and Georgetown Recreation, Education & Arts Trust fees.
