This is totally unacceptable. The mayor has had every opportunity to hand this system over to WV American Water Company. He should be held personally responsible for this mess and charged accordingly.

They'll be fined a ridiculously low amount of money and the citizen, as usual, suffers.

Guys I usually don't say anything on here, but the council voted to sell the water system well over a year ago and it passed. At that time WV water got into their rate hike problem with the PSC. WV water laid off 30 men and said that they were not going to purchase any more systems. There have also been meetings regarding the water that were posted and no one shows up. Where is the concern for community then. Let your voice be heard. Come to the council meetings and say what you think. Also even though the council passed the selling of the system, the system legally belongs to the people of Pratt. So when the offer is made there has to be a special election to vote on wether to sell of not. Be sure to contact WV water and encourage them to purchase our system also.

Steve, nice try. This was pitched to Pratt long before the issue with WV American Water. Pratt has had more than ample opportunity and I witnessed Pratt saying no to the Kanawha County Commission. It is time for the Pratt officials to pay and pay dearly. You have endangered the citizens of Pratt long enough. Stop blaming the citizens.

Sorry...... Everything that was said there was true. The administration is just waiting on WV Water now. Say what you want but if you would attend the meetings you would know what the problems are.

Who cares what you sold the mayor's wife when the town has been poisoning all of us in Pratt, Hansford and Paint Creek for over a year.

No, the water is not fine. It is contaminated with bacteria. I would not give it to my dog to drink. It is a shame that we have to pay an outrageous amount of money for water so we can wash clothes and flush the damn toilet.

If I could drill a well, I damn sure would!

I know for a fact the water is fine since the new cheif water operator took over. And I do agree with getting rid of the mayor and they need to fire the office clerk who is responsible for the mishandling of the funds. That is what they did to the last office clerk.
