The commissioners, acting as the governing board for the water and sewer district, unanimously approved a resolution accepting the USDA funding conditions during a meeting April 14. The project is expected to cost approximately $3.4 million. A USDA Rural Utilities Services grant will cover $2.5 million. The county will also receive an $819,000 Rural Utilities Services 40-year loan and contribute $50,700 of county funding. Commissioners established the Overhills Park Water and Sewer District, which covers the Overhills Park Subdivision located just north of Spring Lake near the intersection of East Manchester Road and Highway 210, in 2009 after failing septic tanks were reported.
