Hugo’s request for $3 million to fund a stormwater reuse project also fell by the wayside. The project was expected to save the city 54 million gallons of water annually. Given the concern with water issues in the northeast metro, Bryan Bear, Hugo’s city administrator, said the decision was particularly disappointing.
