It appears residents in the Rolling Hills area could have a new water provider. McMinnville officials are seriously considering a verbal offer from Warren County Utility District’s manger to purchase 101 customers.Water and Sewer Committee members Jimmy Bonner, chair, Everett Brock and Mike Neal met Tuesday and instructed Water Department director Anthony Pelham to bring them a written proposal for their consideration.The decision was made after a presentation from Pelham outlining the financial situation in a three-page summary.“The line blew out on Christmas night and Warren County Utility worked with us. The line was repaired and we have an interconnection with Warren County now but during the process it became very evident we would have to spend a healthy chunk of money if we wanted to replace and upgrade the line across the creek,” said Pelham.While the city would have to spend approximately $100,000 replacing the broken line under Charles Creek and upgrading the system, the county has an existing line it already has connected to the customers and the verbal offer from Warren County Utility District manager Mike Green would give the city $101,000.
