Putnam County votes on waterline extension projects

Putnam county commissioners this week voted to move forward with waterline extension projects in Custer Ridge, Sigmon Fork, Painters Fork and Trace Fork. Putnam County has about $50,000 set aside so far, and could apply for a low-interest rate loan with the state Infrastructure Jobs Development Council for more. In all, it's a $2.3 million project, and some questions were raised about adding that kind of price tag onto existing debt in Putnam County.
