Borough May Lease Mains to Company
Officials of the borough of Girardville, Ga., are considering a project to lease its water mains to the Broad Mountain Water Company. The municipal water mains have, it is claimed, been a losing proposition for some years and a citizens committee has been appointed to act in conjunction with the water committee in coming to an arrangement with the Broad Mountain Company to take over the mains and furnish water to consumers at the rate now prevailing. At present the water is run through a meter and is bought by the borough from the Girard Water Company at a rate of $50 for the first million gallons each month, and ten cents per thousand gallons over that amount. The borough sells water at the rate of fifty cents per month for a private family, and proportionate rates for bath tubs, hotels, etc. Beer pumps are charged for at the rate of $3.00 per month.
