Community of Spickard to pay more for water but customers rates to remain the same

Spickard, Missouri

The Spickard Board of Aldermen approved several actions Monday evening regarding loan applications.

One involved looking into a loan from the National Rural Water Association to repair the existing pump station. That vote was taken following discussion of a small borrowers loan for wastewater and drinking water needs. City Clerk Amy Chapman reports the city is in the process of doing paperwork and looking into applying for the small borrower’s loan.

A request for qualifications was approved for professional engineering services regarding fixing the pump station and creek crossing. A resolution was also approved authorizing the submittal of documents, which Chapman says designated Mayor Alan Tharp to sign paperwork.

Water loss for December was 14.99% with several days of flushing hydrants. Public Water Supply District Number 1 will raise its rates to six-tenths of a cent per gallon as of February 1st. Spickard will not raise its rates at this time.

The board approved buying 100 gallons of diesel fuel for tractor or lawnmower use and board member J. R. Roberts’s resignation was accepted.

The board looked over a cooperative agreement sent from the Spickard Special Road District.
