The city of Kingston has officially relinquished its hold on Swan Pond Road water customers who are trying to get pressurized municipal water.
“We’ve got to get these people some water,” Councilman Kevin McClure said at the city council meeting Tuesday.
The council had agreed to turn over its water customers on Swan Pond Road to Roane Central Utility District at last month’s meeting and sent a contract regarding the agreement.
Roane Central Utility District returned that contract with a few changes.
City manager Jim Pinkerton said he expects the new line to be in the ground in about 18 months.
Mayor Troy Beets suggested that Pinkerton send a letter to notify residents of the situation.
