  • In their words:

    Jason Scriber

    By Jaxon Scriber

    Do you have land? A part of a PVA’s job is to value it. The bigger the land the bigger the value.

    Another part of a PVA’s job is to produce revenue for most local services .These services are paid for by taxes.

    If this job didn’t exist there would be a lack of  funding for local services such as schools. If it didn’t exist our schools wouldn’t be as good as they are right now.

  • P’ton sewers possible

    A plan is in the works to bring sewer access to Pendleton.

    The plan is in its infancy, and depending on funding sources may be years away from becoming more than a dream.

    The plan would bring sewer access to Pendleton’s businesses from La Grange. District 1 Magistrate Roger Hartlage and others, including Harold Bratton, hatched the idea at a Cracker Barrel.

    The idea is simple: an 8-inch gravity feed line to a pump station in Pendleton, then a 4-inch forced main to La Grange.
