Harristown’s Mayor and Board of Trustees are looking at their options for solutions to issues impacting the Village’s over 40-year-old water plant.
According to a released issued by village officials, the plant is still operational but has been experiencing some equipment failure. They say repairs to the current plant will be “extremely costly,” so the Mayor and Trustees are exploring other opportunities that may be available to Harristown, as well as repairs to the existing plant.
There have been talks about a possible water co-op. There are several communities that are exploring a regional water co-op possibility, but this is only one of several options that the Village is looking into at this time.
In a letter to village residents, the Mayor and Board of Trustees said they hope to gather as much information as quickly as possible to determine the best solution for the water plant.
Officials plan to hold a town meeting on January 5, 2017, at 6:30 PM at Harristown Grade School, pending School Board approval. This meeting will update residents, as well as serve as a forum for any questions or opinions they may have.
