Wikimedia Commons

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.

Sturgis to get new water source

The city of Sturgis, Kentucky will purchase treated water from the Union County Water District with the help of state funds. Governor Steve Beshear announced a new $986,000 state grant today, as well as an additional $3-million from the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority. The current outdated water system has received 33 Notices of Violations for unsafe levels of methane and acids found in the water in the past. Water rates will not increase for Sturgis residents.

Princeton & Sturgis Wet/Dry Vote

wikipedia.com

Voters in Princeton and one precinct in Sturgis, in Union County, have decided to go wet. Caldwell County Clerk Toni Watson says the measure allowing liquor-by-the-drink in restaurants and the sale of packaged liquor passed yesterday by nearly 200 votes. Watson says businesses can apply for the proper license after 60 days.  

The 2nd precinct in Sturgis passed a measure to sell wine and beer by just 14 votes. Precincts 1 and 3 chose to remain dry.  Portions of Union County are already wet  so county clerk Trey Peak expects sales in precinct two to begin in about thirty days.
