KEEDYSVILLE - A new water system to serve Keedysville and Boonsboro will cost about $2.7 million, but officials are not saying exactly how the project will be financed.
The state has given local officials a $1.3 million grant to help pay for the new plant, Mayor Ralph B. Taylor said Monday night.
Taylor said it's premature to discuss how the rest of it will be paid.
"Don't get into that," said Taylor.
All customers will pay a "uniform rate," but that figure has not been set, Taylor said.
The project follows recent difficulty of providing water to the town of Boonsboro. Although Boonsboro has several water sources of its own, it also relies on Keedysville's system.
