Public works department tackles licensing needs
March 11, 2021
After several months of depending on an out-of-town license for water and sewer systems, the Moorcroft public works crew is off to a great start toward obtaining their own licenses.
Scott Green has received his license for operating the water system and hopes to receive the same for sewer before next month.
Dave Elliot needs a few more practical hours and he will have his, too, as well as the sewer certificate, by that time, according to Public Works Director Cory Allison.
Currently, the town is paying $1000 per month for the use of the licensure of Irene Hixson in Newcastle. Hixson had previously told the town she was willing to allow the use of her certification for a limited time and that time is nearing its end. With Green and Elliot fully licensed by April, Moorcroft can stand independently again.
In accordance with law, Allison plans to be part of the next group to test for their water license at the end of the month. He hopes to get his entire department licensed soon.
