Contracts for north and south pump stations officially approved in Jeffersonville


JEFFERSONVILLE — Required connection

Several residents required to connect to city sewers in the Steeplechase neighborhood have yet to do so and may be forced to connect through legal action taken by the city.

Jeffersonville Wastewater Superintendent Len Ashack said residents were sent letters in October stating they have not requested a permit from the sewer billing office to connect to the city sewer system, which they are required to do.

Board Member Bill Saegesser asked if legal action was the next step for the board to take as it had already sent out the certified letters.

“The statute does allow a lawsuit to make them connect and pay for all of the costs for that,” said Sewer Board Attorney Scott Lewis. “It has to be a decision from the board to allow a formal vote to a lawsuit being filed.”

The sewer board voted unanimously to authorize legal action to force the residents to hook up to the sewers.
