Water tower maintenance proposal aired
Clinton not only needs more water, it also needs places to put it when it comes. And to make sure it has those places, city officials are exploring a long-term agreement under which a Georgia company would bring the city’s five water towers and standpipes up to date over the next five years and then maintain them indefinitely into the future.
The Georgia firm is Utility Service Company Inc. of Atlanta. Under figures it proposed at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the cost would be $212,957 each of the next five years while the catchup takes place and $94,672 annually thereafter.
