Pontotoc County Commissioners approved a final performance report for a Community Development Block Grant project in Rural Water District number seven Monday.
The grant was for radio read meters to be installed for the entire district. The meters allow for automatic meter reading.
“We are ready to close out the grant on behalf of Rural Water District number seven,” said Millie Vance of CDBG.
“The project served the entire district,” she said. “We spent $216,005.42 of CDBG funds. We spent $217,432 of water district matching funds.”
Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the report.
Commissioners approved an interlocal agreement between Pontotoc County and City of Ada to move and update a waterline on 13th Street for Pontotoc County Courthouse’s new plaza.
District Two Commissioner Danny Davis said the city would do the work on the waterline and the county would furnish trucks to remove debris and rubble.
Commissioners voted to continue the current burn ban in the county. Pontotoc County Emergency Management Director Chad Letellier said two fires occurred over the weekend because of activities prohibited by the burn ban.
