NEW BERLIN – Among other things discussed at the January New Berlin Town Board meeting, talk surrounded the South New Berlin Water District improvement project and changes to the town permit rates.
On Monday night, Jan. 12, 2015, the New Berlin Town Board convened in the New Berlin Town Hall to discuss town business. Despite the horrid traveling conditions and freezing temperatures, there were a handful community members in attendance.
The main order of business for the board was to begin finalization of the multi million dollar South New Berlin Water District improvement project. The engineering stages of this project began back in 2010. Construction for the project was started in early 2014 and is just being finished.
Among the improvements made to the water system, which services 140 residences in and around the hamlet of South New Berlin, there was an additional well drilled, a water filtration plant was installed, there was 1800 feet of pipe installed for service to more residences, and there were new, remote read, water meters installed. These water meters would allow the meter reader to drive down the street and read meters on both sides of the street without having to leave the vehicle.
