Chariton County Proposition 1 Would Decide Future of Public Water Supply District Number 2

Chariton County voters will decide on Proposition 1 during Tuesday’s election. A yes vote for the proposal would result in Chariton County Public Water Supply District Number 2 selling its assets to Missouri-American Water Company and then dissolving. District President Rick Manson says this proposal has been planned for a while.

Manson adds there is a quality aspect regarding the sale to Missouri-American.

Customers could see savings of up to 50 percent if the proposal passes. The district covers areas in and around Brunswick, Triplett and Dean Lake. Manson says local schools would also benefit.

The proposal requires two-thirds approval to pass.
