To Move Ahead
Edenton Town Council, upon recom
mendation of the Board of Public Works,
has set priorities on improvement of the
water system as well as expansion of
both the water and sewer systems. The
projects, while considered to meet mini
mum needs, are costly.
The total estimated cost of the pro
jects considered to be the most urgent
is $612,000. If a federal grant of at
least 50 per cent of the cost is secured
it will still mean $306,000 in local money
must be forthcoming. Some of this will
come through assessments paid by those
who will receive the benefit of the new
services while the greater portion must
be secured from other sources.
