The Water After Long Delays

The Interurban Water Company, of Independence, Mo., after having had many difficulties, legal, municipal and other, put in its way, has at last overcome all obstacles and been granted by the county court a 20-year franchise to lay mains between the east city limits of Kansas City and Independence, Mo. The minimum charge the company agrees to accept in the franchise is $1.50 a month for 2,500 gallons of water. When there are 400 consumers the charge is to be reduced 25 cents, and with 600 consumers 25 cents more The company agreed to furnish water free to any county institutions on the line and to put in a free fire hydrant for every 25 consumers.
