  • LJ committee to look at rates

    LEBANON JUNCTION — Lebanon Junction is facing some tough decisions when it comes to the city’s water company.

    For years the city has been making hundreds of thousands of dollars in account transfers from the occupational tax fund to help keep the water department afloat. City Clerk Susan Crady said the water company has not been self-sustaining for several years, and that’s a big problem.

    If the city was to lose a large portion of its occupational tax money then it could possibly be unable to pay for bulk water and system maintenance.
