UNION BRIDGE - The Maryland Department of the Environment will allow the town more time to find about $60,000 in additional money needed before 25 homeowners can hook into the town's water and sewer systems.
Mayor Edward L. Williar said the state made available a $70,000 grant last month for the project, which would assist the residents whose water supply comes from Bowman Springs. The owner of the springs has given the residents until the end of 1991 to find an alternate water source.
Town officials met with the commissioners Thursday to see how the county can help. Williar said he expects a reply from the county within the next few weeks.
