Earlville Holds Special Meetings On Budget, Water Districts

EARLVILLE – After getting the approval to move forward with a $4.5 million capital improvement project to upgrade the village water system, Earlville will hold special meetings in the coming months to tie up some loose ends.

Although no date has officially been set, the village will hold a special meeting in February to discuss the formation of water districts in the four towns surrounding the Village of Earlville. Currently, the village water system supplies water to residents slightly outside the village lines on the east and west of the village with no formal arrangement between the municipalities.

In past meetings, water project Engineer Brian Skidmore of Barton and Loguidice explained that because there is no formal agreement. With water districts in place, the Village of Earlville would bill the town for the total water usage, and the town would in turn bill the residents who receive water from the village system. This step provides more options in the event of non-payment, allowing the town to add the unpaid water bill onto a resident’s taxes. Currently, the village has no recourse when non-village residents fail to pay their bills.

“The towns in these areas need to form proper water districts, a formal agreement between the village and the town to supply water,” explained Skidmore at previous public hearing on the water project.
