    I would love to see public water come to Silver Lake Road. Many residential homes have to haul water due to wells during our. And the water quality from most wells is poor and residents have to but water for cooking and drinking.

    We agree with Jamie Pike that making municipal water available for all Covington taxpayers who live on Silver Lake Road is of utmost importance. We are well aware of neighbors who have been unable to sell their properties because of the well known water difficulties here and are forced to truck water for their daily needs. It is extremely unfair to add an additional tax burden on Silver Lake Road residents in order to benefit a few residents and some large businesses who are already receiving numerous tax cuts and benefits that the rest of us pay for.

      JERRY DAVIS says:

      Steve, The only people that pay for a water district are the people who live in the district so there will be no tax burden on the people who live on Silver Lake road. We have looked at providing water to Silver Lake road but it’s too expensive to bring it in from Perry Center. We are hoping that with this new water district that we will be able to expand it to possible include Silver Lake road.

    I would like to see public water down on Crossman Road. I believe there is already a waterline to the county border. A number of new wells had to be drilled on Crossman and Wyoming Rd within the past 2 years.

    Is the pickup day for all of Covington going to be Thursday? We were on a Monday pick up previously.
    In addition;
    We have been paying for WM service and have paid through the months of March and April, will we be reimbursed for services paid for?

    • Larry Warren
      Larry Warren says:

      Pickup is Thursday for the whole town. You will get a refund for March and April. The refund will be check or credit, depending how you paid your bill. If you had autopay, you will not be charged in the future, WM is going to delete all private accounts.

      The present water project is only in the north east corner of the Town. I am sure that the town board will be looking into future water projects after this is completed.
