Talk of water repairs led the discussion during the council meetings in Hopedale and Jewett.  The chlorine pump at the Jewett water plant needs replaced as soon as possible, so council allocated $1,000 for the project.

Hopedale is also experiencing problems with one of its villages water pumps, replacing the faulty pump with a spare while the other is being repaired. The water department is currently working on repairing meters throughout the village. Details of these issues and more council actions are reported in this week’s print edition of the Harrison News-Herald.
