City-town water deal could stagnate

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Early committee discussions on a proposed water line from Chiefland to Otter Creek have Chiefland commissioners saying a better deal needs to be put on the table.

Vice Mayor Teresa Barron, who heads up the committee on Chiefland’s end, gave an update on the matter at Monday night’s commission meeting.

“(There are) several issues that would have to determine what’s going on,” she said.

Otter Creek’s current proposal, a plan that would help the town fix a dangerous water quality issue, calls for a 6-inch pipe carrying clean, fresh water from Chiefland  about 12 miles down U.S. Highway 19. The project is projected to cost about $2.4 million, funds that will be secured by the Town of Otter Creek.
