A special meeting held by Morgan County commissioners this morning tackled an easement approval for the North Morgan Water Cooperative.

Commissioner Ginny Fanning explains.

“The county received a request from the North Morgan Water Co-op to allow them to have an easement of some property that the county owns, where our communication tower resides, and this will help them in the process of continuing their hard work on getting water out to all the residents of Morgan County,” says Fanning.

Fanning says the property is in the northwestern portion of Morgan County.

The easement item was on a previous agenda for this past Monday’s meeting, but was delayed after Fanning says the Morgan County State’s Attorney reviewed the paperwork. She says the water co-op agreed to the proposed changes to the language.
