Water issues in neighboring Albany continue to be a concern for city residents and elected officials.
According to a report in the Clinton County News, the Albany City Council recently discussed the hiring of an engineering firm to complete a study of the city’s major water problem, which includes significant loss of water and master meters more than 60 years old.
Three engineering firms submitted proposals to do the study, but during a recent city council meeting, it was obvious city council members had lots of questions about a particular firm and how the evaluation process of those bids had been conducted.
Meanwhile, the water issues continue to be an issue not only for residents, but also local businesses, one of which has apparently expressed the situation is dire and could force them to consider relocating.
The Albany City Council will meet again this evening (Tuesday) to continue their discussion of the matter.
