LANDIS — The Landis Board of Aldermen voted Monday to buy and install an automatic meter reading system. The budget for the project is estimated to be $969,270, with the town contributing $48,270.

The N.C. Division of Water Infrastructure will contribute $736,800 to the project via an infrastructure forgiveness loan and an additional $184,200 will be provided through a N.C. Division of Water Infrastructure Loan. Reimbursement for the water meter fund will be provided through the town grant.

The board voted to use the $1.5 million it has left in bonds to construct an elevated water tank and waterline extensions. The waterlines would run down North Chapel Street, under Kimball Road and tie onto Main Street. The project would increase water pressure for the entire town.

The board considered the project at previous meetings and Monday reviewed a proposal for the planning and construction of the tank and extensions provided by Municipal Engineering Services Co. and voted to contract the company. The budget for the project has yet to be determined.

The board also discussed:

  • Tearing down the wing walls for the grade separation of the railway construction on Kimball street should not delay the project and is not a correction that will cost the taxpayers any money.
  • The Breast Cancer 5k was delayed due to weather and has been rescheduled for Oct. 24 at 10 a.m.
