Vandalia asks for $112,000 for water line extension

By Rich Bauer, Managing Editor

The Fayette County Board on Tuesday tabled a request from the city for funding assistance with the extension of a water line in the city’s western Interstate 70 interchange.

The city has asked the county to chip in $112,000 for the water line extension, which an engineer has estimated to cost $212,000.

Several board members balked at the request, with the reasons cited including the county’s financial status, the amount requested being more than half of the total project cost and the fear of setting a precedent.
