As the city of Murphy begins wrapping up business this calendar year, council heard updates on water loss from the Public Services Director Tim Rogers and the state of the municipal court system during the council’s Tuesday, Nov. 15 meeting.
Court Administrator Patti Towne presented the Municipal Court operations update. She informed council that the court hired two new associate judges, Dana Huffman and Ashley McSwain, under a two-year appointed contract. Also hired, after a lengthy search, was new bailiff, John Rogatski.
In a separate presentation on water loss, Public Services Director Rogers told council how many water lines the department repaired — 48 lines this year. The department also eliminated some water loss by replacing 41 inaccurate or outright broken water meters.
While unexplained water loss still totals over a million gallons of water, the number is in line with previous months.
The next council meeting is scheduled for Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
