A Resolution Authorizing a Loan of up to $20,000 to the Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority for Repairs to the Marshall Water Works System

Topic Description:

The Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority (WSA) has a contract with the Marshall Water Works Corporation which authorizes the WSA to operate the Marshall Water System on behalf of the Corporation.  In fulfiling its function as the operator of the system, the WSA has determined that the system is in need of repairs.  Marshall Water Works II, Inc., has refused to permit the WSA to expend water works funds on the repairs.  The WSA has expressed its concern that a failure to make the repairs may result in the loss of water services to all or part of the system.  The WSA has requested that the Board of Supervisors authorize a loan of up to $20,000 from the County to the WSA to permit the WSA to make necessary repairs if Marshall Water Works II, Inc. refuses to permit the WSA to use water works monies for the repairs.
