PERSIA - The water district is still no further along in the town of Persia. Town Supervisor Melvin LeBar brought up the matter at the monthly board meeting.
"We've been through this the last several months," LeBar said.
According to Town Clerk Denise Trumpore, there are 14 houses in the town that want to start their own water district. Currently the village of Gowanda supplies the water. Under the proposed district, the village will still supply the water but the town will send out separate bills.
The town's lawyer and the village's lawyer have been working together on this agreement. According to Trumpore who talked to the town lawyer, nothing has been sent over from the village.
"I contacted our lawyers first to see and he said 'No, we haven't heard anything,'" Trumpore said.
The town also approved Trumpore to purchase a clerk program software from BAS. This program is a backup program that costs $14.50 a month.
"This backup service will provide peace of mind from any disaster that could happen including fire, water damage (or) computers crashing," Trumpore said.
The board approved the contract for up to $174 a year. The BAS program is currently what Trumpore uses for all transactions where money is taken in including marriage and hunting licenses.
