City Water Plan Aired At Meet

Frostburg – The Mayor and City Council held a meeting Tuesday with R. C. Regnier, consulting engineer for Whitman, Requardt and Associates. The new 16-inch main will run from the city reservoir on Big Savage Mountain to High Street, a distance of 4,317 feet, at an estimated cost of $60,000

Alex G. Close, city clerk, stated that the city has available $40,000 from the 1947 water improvement bond issue, and $25,000 from the 1950 water improvement bond issue.

The 1947 issue was for $60,000 of which $20,000 has already been spent and the 1950 issue was for $50,000 of which $25,000 has already been spent by the water department.

Mayor Jesse Jacobs stated that an effort is being made to have the work started before winter.

The Frostburg Fire Department recommended this larger waiter main seven years ago, following the disastrous Abramson fire which occurred in September, 1945.
