County officials attend groundbreaking ceremony for the Marshall Junction water tank

Wednesday, January 15, 2020
The Saline County Commission, along with other county officials, attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the elevated water storage tank — close to the Marshall Junction and located northeast of U.S. Highway 65 and Interstate 70 intersection — Wednesday morning, Jan. 15. The purpose of this 250,000 gallon tank is to help provide enough fire protection, as well as water supply, for the 65 and I-70 area — also to serve customers of the Saline County PWSD No. 3. The funding for this project is coming from the county’s economic development half-cent sales tax. The total construction costs for this project will be $698,735. Construction for the water tower is set to begin Thursday, Jan. 16, and estimated to be completed by Saturday, Aug. 15. The following county officials are pictured from left: Nelson Mayor Gale Cornine; Tony Day, Marshall Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director; President Greg Swift of Marshall-Saline Development Corporation; Southern Commissioner Monte Fenner; Kirby McCullough, chairman for Arrow Rock’s Board of Aldermen; Presiding Commissioner Kile Guthrey; MSDC Director Sandy Allison; and Northern Commissioner Stephanie Gooden.

  • Since we've looked at this picture for the last month on the service we pay to subscribe to, do you think it's possible just to put a heart or something up there as the main picture? It's kind of sad that in a months time, there's nothing more noteworthy going on in the community than seeing the same picture of the county commission.
