Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority


The city of Hopkinsville is looking to fill two administrative positions at City Hall following the resignation of its acting chief adminstrative officer.

Melissa Spurr, who had also been the city's budget officer, stepped down from both positions to become the financial director for the Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority.


An ordinance gradually raising water bills about 31 percent in Hopkinsville is set for the city council’s approval.

Hopkinsville Water Environment Authority General Manager Derrick Watson says the ordinance which spreads the increase over three years unanimously passed its first reading at Tuesday’s city council meeting. Watson says if the increase passes its second reading the additional revenue will go toward projects in Hopkinsville.
