Hector will absorb Burdett’s water district

HECTOR—The Hector town board is planning to expand their water district by absorbing the village of Burdett’s district.
The board approved spending $7,500 to pay for the cost of preparing a general map, plan and report for extending the district, Tuesday, Feb. 12. The money will be used to start the process of forming the extension of the water district, the boundaries of which will be the village of Burdett. Supervisor Ben Dickens explained the village decided it no longer wanted to operate its own water district. The town and the village have been meeting since October of last year to discuss transferring operation of the district.
Dickens added the village held a public hearing and the deadline to oppose the merger ended Friday, Feb. 22, with no petitions. The goal is to have the transition completed by June 1.
Dickens explained the town will take over Burdett’s tank and pump site. He said the village’s 148 water accounts will join the 425 town accounts. He added the merge will decrease Burdett water bills by a few dollars and have no impact on town residents.
“It’s a good fit,” said Dickens.
