Well problems may not delay project

 The City of Yorktown and Layne Christensen Company have hit a bump in the road in the completion of the town’s new water well. On Wednesday, April 1, a large amount of sand was discovered while completing the aquifer test.

The goal and anticipation from the city was to have the well finished by March 19. Following completion, a new pump would be installed and the entire development of the well was to be wrapped up by April 5.

Only days prior to scheduled completion sand was found in the water while conducting tests.

Layne Christensen worker Jeff Pennell noted how he was beginning to load equipment when initial tests were showing good, clean water.

Order favors fewer fowl

The common theme at the Yorktown city council meeting held on April 13 was safety of the community and “foul play.”

Since officer Joshua Serbin’s induction as code enforcement officer in July 2014, he has been hard at work insuring that safety of the community is priority. That safety includes identifying certain health and housing standards, promote the public health, safety, and general welfare within the city through the regulation of substandard buildings.

Serbin said, “There were 26 open cases when I took over as code enforcement officer. Twelve cases had been open nine months or less and the others had been open 12 plus months. I have been able to close nine of the 26 cases.”
