earlington city 300EARLINGTON, Ky. (12/17/13) — Back in October, the residents of Earlington found out that 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.

Today, the City of Earlington sent out a press release in regard to the issue: “The City of Earlington is current with South Hopkins Water District, including any late fees/penalties assessed, and Madisonville Municipal Utilities.”

When SurfKY News asked where the money came from to pay the delinquent invoices, Mayor Michael Sieber wasn’t available to talk about it.

Last month, County Attorney Todd P’Pool, also the water district attorney, told SurfKY News that there was some movement on the issue. Seiber had requested that the charges be written off, however, the South Hopkins Water District delined to do so.

When Todd P’Pool was contacted about the press release, he said, “I hope we can continue this trend and to keep moving forward.”
