  1. Yes Clarence sure could use the upgrade very seriously the water is not drinkable are cook with barely can be used to shower are bath

  2. The former administration caused the problem and bled the village dry of all its funds. It neglected the water and sewage problems leaving a huge mess, used grant monies for pet projects leaving raw sewage running in homes and ditches and our pasture. All this was brought to the attention of all state and local officials many many times. Now that the new administration, village and community members are coming together to fix the problems you fine the village. The village’s problems stem from no money so how is fining them going to solve anything. Help them not penalize them for someone else’s incompetence.

  3. A tiny town that can’t afford $15,000 to spend on fines… I’m guessing its citizens knew and complained about the drinking water and sewage system long before the Dept. of Health had to intervene. Goes to show, if you ignore a problem, it comes back to bite you in the tushie sooner or later.
