County OKs water system hookup plan

November 15, 2006|by TARA REILLY

The Washington County Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to help Pen Mar-area residents pay to hook up to a new water system.

Under the program, the commissioners will put a lien on properties with the understanding that the water allocation fees are collected when the property is sold or ownership is transferred.

The program applies to 48 residents who weren't eligible for a zero percent, no-payback loan assistance program. Thirty residents qualified for the loan assistance program. Those property owners would not have to pay back the loans if they live in the residence for five years.
