The Chattooga County Water Authority heard from Butch Eleam 
with Guffin & Eleam, Inc. The board approved Mr. Eleam’s 
recommendation to change insurance previously with Auto
Owners to Cincinnati. The Water District will save approoximately
$2000 per year.
By a 2-3 vote, a long running tradition will come to an end next month.
The majority voted to no longer offer a Christmas bonus to the nine
employees at the water office. 
The Hawk Ridge water tank will be getting a much needed face lift.
Work has already begun on landscaping around the tank. The tank will
be painted and lettered in coming months. The Hawk Ridge tank is
located off Trion-Teloga Road. The county has two other tanks located
on Taylor’s Ridge and in Halls Valley along the property of the late
water district member D. L. "Goob" Williams. The remaining two tanks
will also have some touch up painting and lettering.
