Back to normal for Laurens CPW after stretch of cold temperatures

Mar 12 Written by  MONTE DUTTON

Compared to the regular meeting a month earlier, the Laurens Commission of Public Works barely met at all on Monday afternoon.

Twenty minutes? Tops.

In the wake of an unusually cold January, utility bills went up drastically in February, and a somewhat agitated group of customers showed up to register shock and consternation. All of them received invitations to attend further meetings, but attendance there was sparse. CPW general manager John Young reported that he had been able to resolve a few complaints.

Bryan C. Able, a local attorney of 25 years' standing, was present in his new role as CPW attorney, replacing newly appointed Family Court judge Matthew P. Turner.

Young announced that an audit preparation will be an item on the April agenda. He said the preliminary report "looked good" and noted that the process went unusually smoothly.

The Board of DIrectors agreed to continue as title sponsor of the Sporting Clays fund-raiser held each year to benefit the Laurens County Health Care System.

Young reported on the completion of the exterior illumination of a sign at Hunter Industrial Site and progress of a sewer system for the facility.
