Chautauqua County is hesitant to send water to Caney during the current water shortage.
Caney has asked Chautauqua County for 35,000 gallons of water per day, to support the 77,000 gallons it takes to run Caney each day.
County commissioner Rodney Shaw says Caney needs to fix the leaks first.
Chautauqua and Elk counties are also currently in a drought, with 35,000 gallons of water being enough to support the town of Grenola for four days.
Shaw says he wants to help Caney, but there must be steps taken.
The county commissioners also canvassed the results of the 2023 General Election at this week's meeting.
