Help on Loyalton's major water leak was rejected by the State, City Mayor Sarah Jackson reported at the September 20th City Council meeting and told of two bids, $252,646 and $368,489. Both bids were well over the engineer's estimate. It was an open bid and she stated they were able to "shave off " $31,000 in traffic control. In paying she told of $80,000 in Cal Trust, $29,400 in general savings and the $6,000 per week they pay toward sewer and water which has met its year end mark. They would sign the draft contract the following day. On Monday work started on the south end of Second Street and affected residents on Lewis, Second and West Mill Streets were warned of water shut-offs from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The area has a lot of noise and dust. The mayor stated they would repave where they dig it up.
