The city of Sturgis’s plan to shut down its water plant and move to the county water system is a good economic decision. That’s the opinion of Department for Local Government Commissioner Tony Wilder. He said the 34-year old Sturgis water plant spends 40-thousand dollars a year to meet current cleaning standards. Wilder said it’s cheaper for Sturgis to connect to the Morganfield plant than to build a new local one.
