Wolfforth requests community participation in water issues

The city of Wolfforth will hold a town hall meeting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13 in the Frenship High School cafeteria on water treatment and the options the city has for obtaining new water sources.

Mayor Charles Addington said he has planned the meeting as an informational opportunity for residents interested in finding out what the city will do about water. But it’s also an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts on the issue.

City Manager Darrell Newsom said when the public meeting was first planned he expected the city to have plans already set. But new information from Blaus Wasser about financing options presented before Monday night’s meeting led city council members to delay voting on whether to build a water treatment center. They could also tie in to well fields the city owns near Ropesville, connect to Blaus Wasser’s water pipeline or even request a connection to Lubbock’s water supply to be used if future water problems arise.

City Secretary Debbie Perkey said a notice about the town hall meeting was sent to Wolfforth residents in the water bill they should receive this week.
