Earlington Water Remains in Jeopardy

earlington city 300EARLINGTON, Ky. (11/20/13) – As of late October, Earlington residents found out there could be a possibility their water supply would be cut off due to delinquent outstanding invoices of nearly $25,000, which was a total of two months.

County Attorney Todd P’Pool told SurfKY News last month that if the invoices weren’t paid soon, the city's water supply would be shut off. He also said that the South Hopkins Water District was currently keeping the water on out of good graces.

“There was some movement today,” said P’Pool Tuesday, Nov. 19. “I have reviewed a written letter from the South Hopkins Water District declining (Earlington) Mayor Michael Seiber’s request to write off any charges. The South Hopkins Water District felt it wasn’t fair for other customers. His request to abate water charges has been declined.”

SurfKY made several attempts to contact Seiber about the city's water supply. He did not return those calls.

After making several city personnel changes including the layoff of the city's police chief, he released the following statement via email Nov. 13:

“I met with the City employees Tuesday morning to finish the reorganization of City government, to discuss financial issues, and address our infrastructure problems. The City of Earlington has been cut to the bare minimum. We have water and sewer departments and office personnel, a total of five City employees.”
