Ottawa Threatens To Shut Off Naplate’s Water

Posted by wlpo on December 18, 2012

Water may be shut off soon to all of Naplate.

The Ottawa City Council has sent Naplate a letter saying they’ll stop offering water if the village doesn’t pay 22 thousand dollars in overdue water bills.  When Ottawa raised its water rates a few months ago, Mayor Bob Eschbach says Naplate officials refused to pay the new rates.  He says Naplate still will get a break since the city normally charges twice the rates for extending services outside city limits.

Commissioner Dale Baxter says it time for Ottawa to “stick to its guns”.
