The Leitchfield Utilities Commission on Thursday approved the cost of repairs to the city’s water towers.

During the regularly scheduled Thursday, Aug. 4 Utilities Commission meeting, Leitchfield Utilities Chairman Robert Crawford presented an invoice from Pharis Electric for repairs to the water towers’ lighting.

Crawford said the water towers are required to have continuous lighting; however, there was some issue preventing the towers’ lights from running continuously.

The invoice for the repairs was $425.19, which the Utilities Commission then approved.

In other business:

*Leitchfield Utilities Attorney David Vickery reported that the Leitchfield City Council had unanimously approved the contract with the federal government to continue to store Leitchfield’s water at Rough River Dam; however, the contract had, as of Thursday evening, not yet been returned from Washington D.C.

*The Utilities Commission entered into executive session to discuss personnel.

Upon returning to open session, Crawford said Leitchfield Utilities Superintendent Dwight Embry, during the executive session, informed the Utilities Commission of a personnel matter involving a single employee; however, no action was taken.
