Council discusses water system

Thursday, August 11, 2011

KNIGHTSVILLE -- The Knightsville Town Council met Tuesday night for its monthly meeting. The council discussed the water system planning study, new equipment for the Town Marshal's car, and community upkeep.

The water system planning study was prepared by Midwest Engineers and will show the town where inconsistencies are in their water system.

"We had to hire a firm to tell us what we need to update in our water system," Council President Mike Kester said.

"We're trying to update our water system because we're losing a lot of water. We borrow water off of Brazil. We're paying for water that (we're not receiving payments for). We're losing it somewhere, (and) we're trying to figure out where," Kester said.

The council applied for and received a community development block grant (CDBG) to pay for the research from the firm and now must figure out how to fund the project to update their water system.

Meanwhile, the council has also been approved for a grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security to be reimbursed for a new radar and in-car camera for the town marshal's car.

"(The grant) was approved and we're waiting to be reimbursed for that. It was over $5,000 cost and we're being reimbursed $4,000," Clerk Treasurer Charlotte Reyher said.

The council also discussed a problem area of the town that has been fixed.

Contractor Bob Parr brought in pictures of a repaired storm sewer on Johnson Street that had been a problem for sometime. The sewer was repaired within the last few weeks.

The Knightsville Town Council meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m., at the Knightsville Community Center. The next meeting is scheduled for September 13.
