County Offers Loan

September 26, 1990

UNION BRIDGE - The county is willing to provide Union Bridge with a $31,000 interest-free loan to help pay for new sewer and water hookups, K. Marlene Conaway, assistant director of planning, told the Town Council Monday.

The money would be added to a $70,000 state grant to offset costs of adding about 29 homes to the town's water and sewer systems.

The homes currently receive water from a private system on the Bowman Springs farm. Dennis Bowman said he wants to discontinue the service by the end of 1991.

The residents would each pay about $1,000 in hook-up fees.

Representatives of the homeowners said they will discuss the offer with the group and give officials an answer to the offer by Friday.

The town already has received two extensions on the state's deadline and must reply to the grant offer as soon as possible.
