04-15-14 ASHLAND EMERGENCY WATER PLANS HITS HUGE FINANCIAL SNAG

Apr 15, 2014 -- 8:13am

 A PROJECT THAT WOULD INCREASE ASHLAND'S EMERGENCY WATER SUPPLY... IS HITTING A FINANCIAL SNAG.      THE CITY WANTS TO TAP INTO PHOENIX AND TALENT'S WATER THROUGH A NEW PIPELINE...
BUT IT'S GOING TO BE A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE CITY FIRST ANTICIPATED. IN MARCH...THE ASHLAND CITY COUNCIL VOTED UNANIMOUSLY IN FAVOR OF SPEEDING UP THE PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION OF A WATER PIPELINE....AND THE CITY SAYS THEY CAN AFFORD THE PROJECT... AS LONG AS A PLAN TO RAISE WATER RATES BY 10% GOES THROUGH. BUT THE ORIGINAL COST OF 2.3 MILLION DOLLARS...HAS NOW BEEN RAISED TO 4.3 MILLION DOLLAR ESTIMATE. THE ASHLAND CITY COUNCIL IS EXPECTED TO DISCUSS THE ISSUE AT  TONIGHT'S COUNCIL MEETING.
