BOARD OF WORKS: Residents granted bill credits for leaky pipes

GOSHEN — Severe cold that plagued Goshen this past winter is still taking a financial toll.

On Monday the Board of Public Works and Safety granted three residents credits on their sewer bills for January and February due to leaky water pipes.

Charles Fort, 122 The Willows, received a credit for $375.03, Alice Rolph, 163 The Willows, received a credit for $92.64 and Robert Miller, 1014 S. 15th St. received a credit for $72.28.

The board does not give a credit or refund on the amount of water that flows from a leaky pipe, but does give a credit on the sewer bill for the amount of water that did not go into the sewer system. Typical sewer bills are often used to calculate the difference in consumption.

In other business the board:

• Hired Michiana Tree Works for $625 to remove a diseased pine tree from the City Annex Building lawn.

• Approved occupancy permits for a new home owned by Victor and Irene Koop, 905 Deerstone Drive, and an industrial building expansion at 2333 Century Drive that is owned by Forest River Manufacturing.

• Approved a revised promotion policy for the police department. The provision that officers must have a least two years service before being appointed to a non-rank department position was removed. The revision involves the school resource officer, training officer and one position on the drug unit, according to Shannon Marks, legal compliance administrator.

• Hired Super Seal for $12,256, which was the low bid, to surface seal a downtown parking lot.
