The Leitchfield Utilities Commission discussed the progress of the under-construction sewer project at the new Grayson County School Board headquarters at Thursday night’s meeting. Utilities Superintendent Kevin Pharis noted that workers still have 1,784 feet to lay -- 18 feet deep in the ground -- until completion.
If the sewer is not completed by the target move-in date in late July, the Commission said a holding tank will be utilized at the new building to accommodate its sewer needs.
The Commission also agreed to purchase a new premium efficiency pump motor for the old Intake system at a cost of $9,500.00. In order to replace the old pump, which has been utilized for many years, a crane must be rented at a cost of $1,500.00, with labor costs adding another $1,200.00 to the total cost of replacement.
