FISCAL OFFICER___________________________________ DATE________________
The Village of Antwerp’s personnel/finance committee will meet on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. in council chambers to review the Village’s Employee Personnel Manual.
As part of the waterline replacement project. Sections of E. Canal from Erie Street east to Water Plant drive will cause water in the area to be off while connections are made. Once water comes back on, residents are advised to run their outside spigots until the water clears as the process of shutting off water caused sediment to be stirred in the lines. There has been no lose of pressure in the line so this does not caused a boil advisory. The Village would ask for patience during this process as we replace cast iron lines that are over 50 years old with plastic. This should result in less waterline breaks.
Due to rain yesterday, the connection by the waterline contractor to E. Canal will continue this morning and there will be interruptions of water starting this morning. This will also effect S. Main residents/business from E. Canal to Daggett.
Due to the new waterline project on S. Main Street, water to the downtown will be shut off temporarily while the contractors tap into the E. Canal Line. Should be any time and they will work as fast as they can to get water back on.
