Edinburg Council approves contract renewals

EDINBURG – Edinburg Town Council approved several contracts at its meeting on Tuesday.

Included among those approved was the contract with Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office, which will cost $93,890, roughly a 3 percent increase from a year ago.

The council also approved the town’s contract for the use of the wastewater treatment. Renewal cost of that contract is $8,514 per month, an increase of about $600 per month. Mayor Dan Harshman said that part of the increase is due to purchasing chemicals required to combat bacteria in the water supply, for which testing has become more comprehensive.

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office also reported 537 calls to action in the town, including a drug-related search warrant service in which arrests were made, according to Capt. Wesley Dellinger.

Also discussed was the potential sale of 107 S. High St. Shentel plans to buy the house for the purposes of tearing it down according to Harshman.

A meeting will be held to further discuss amending the town’s budget at 7 p.m. April 27.
