County trying to sell Eugene water system

County trying to sell Eugene water system

August 18th, 2011 in News

Cole County's government wants to get out of the water business.

Presiding Commissioner Marc Ellinger plans to contact Missouri American Water Co. officials to set up a meeting with the County Commission about what it would take for the company to buy the Eugene water system from the county.

Commissioners believe that a major factor Missouri American will want to address is raising the water rates.
