Facility fails to cover its expenses

By Frank Johnson

Bardstown City Council members weighed the pros and cons of continuing to operate a water station in Boston that has recently broken at a working session of the council Tuesday.

The station dispenses barrels of city water for citizens for the price of a few quarters and is frequently used by individuals who are not hooked up to a water line. At the meeting, Sheckles said he recently received an e-mail from a woman in the Boston area who uses it to get water from her home and was concerned because the station had stopped working.
