EDINBURG — The Village of Edinburg held a regular meeting on Monday, December 13, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. in the Village Hall.
At the meeting, Village Attorney Rocci Romano told that Board that he was down to his last five easements needed for the raw water line project to begin. He hopes to get those finished as soon as possible, so that the project can begin on time.
He also confirmed that the agreement with Sharpsburg and Neighboring Area Water Systems was signed by the Village President.
Romano also shared with the Board a law suit filed against the Village by a convicted felon. Romano said he did not expect anything to come from the lawsuit, and the the Village should be fine. He hopes the Board doesn’t have to hear about it again. According to Romano, there was no merit to the claims being made against the Village. He just wanted to bring the matter to the Boards attention so they were aware of it.
