The city of Fredonia is examining options to fix the city's water issues.
City commissioners met with engineers from B-G Consultants in a special session earlier this week to discuss issues with the city's water lines. Fredonia has experienced several line breaks in the past year that have led to interruptions in water supply and several “boil water” orders. City Administrator Wes Young says the priority is to improve the system for residents. Young says the age of the lines in the current system combined with changes in the weather make the lines prone to leaks. Commissioners authorized Young and B-G Consultants to move forward with the process to create a plan of action for repairing and maintaining the lines. The Fredonia City commission will meet again on Wednesday at 5:30pm at city hall for their regularly scheduled meeting.
