City Water Project Update-Per Attorney Don LoBue, since there is an annexation, a public hearing was required and was held Tuesday night. Final passage by the Springfield City Council is scheduled for next Tuesday night. Per Supervisor Gary Budd, the deposit check for the water service has been paid and the required permits are being obtained and the needed products are being ordered. He said the Township will not have to annex to the City until an adjoining property annexes. Since the Township is tax exempt, there is no advantage for the City if the Township was to annex.
