Odor control agreement for Jeffersonville pump station gets OK



Ashack recommended the city could go ahead with negotiating a deal with Clark Memorial Hospital to buy the land so that it could install the fence around the pump station. By the time design plans are finished in July, a contractor could begin construction. It is anticipated construction of the biofilter would be complete by spring 2014.

The early estimate for construction costs totals $110,000, Ashack said.



The sewer board was also notified at their meeting that Watson Rural Water Co. Inc. will begin charging the city 40 cents per reading on water meters. There was previously no charge for the service.

“We have 2,749 customers that [meters are read for],” Ashack said. 

The total cost would be nearly $1,100 each time it reads meters, if all meters are read.

The board directed attorney Scott Lewis to investigate whether or not there is a statute that regulates the charges that can be levied to read the meters and he said he will bring it back to the next meeting.
