Lunch Rights Reserved --JL-n:,a-- Not Responsible For Accidents 267-4949 April 27-2t SHEPHERDSTOWN EYES IMMEDIATE COUNTY, STATE SEWAGE HELP In desperate need of last minute funding for its $2.2 million proposed sewage system, Shepherdstown Town Council Tuesday night voted 5-1 to proceed with the project, contingent on assistance from the governor's Office or County Commission. According to Mayor Charles Bosley, the town needs about $100,000 to fund construction bids already awarded, which ex- ceeded by $640,000 the town engineer's original estimate. A grant from the Environmental Protection Agency for 75 percent of project costs is assured, but other federal and state assistance cannot exceed , previously determined levels, creating the shortage: Bosley said. Stating alternatives for fun- ding, Shepherdstown attorney Doug Rockwell noted that a state Partnership Grant, which ap- pears to be held up in the governor's office; a grant from the county, or a local bank loan. The letter action is unac- ceptable, Rockwell said, because it would require the town to provide as collateral a lien on the system or to return to the Public Service Commission for a revised rate schedule. Bosley, and Rockwell, who LEETOWN Mrs. Ruth Locke Dial 725-8309 'stated the problem to County Commission last week, will meet with commissioner today, when it is expected to vote on $55,000 request. Rockwell said that the commission has authority to grant loans to individual county municipalities -- an issue commission debated last week. The county loan, if granted, would fall far short of necessary funding, covering only im- mediate needs. Bosley added that he repeatedly has contacted the governor's office about the state grant, though he has been unable to reach the governor himself.
