WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The town meeting in West Terre Haute Monday evening required some extra security.
Several people showed up to the meeting to talk about a water issue.
One of the topics at the meeting was a payment the town made in connection to a water bill of a resident.
The issue in question was whether the council was playing favorites.
Few residents spoke up after the city clerk explained the situation of the broken equipment.
In short, the council says they did exactly what they’re obligated to do in this type of case.
“And the charge to the town for the actual billing of the equipment in there is much more than $500 for the sewer installation. It’s the same thing for everyone who gets a grinder pump and a rotor and they all get a break,” the Clerk said.
Another thing that came up in the meeting, some insurance trouble for the city.
West Terre Haute is bringing in a trainer focused on environmental health and safety in hopes that the change will help them get better liability coverage.
