Derry council unsure if county authority will buy sewer system
By Nick Cammuso
Bulletin Staff Writer

Derry Borough Council is waiting for an answer — one way or another — regarding the possible sale of the borough municipal authority to the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County.

Council again discussed the matter during a work session on Monday, but president Chad Fabian said it’s unknown whether the county authority is going to extend an offer to purchase the borough’s sewer system.

LWA Executive Director Susan Huba attended the meeting to state her organization’s case for tax exempt status, something that has been denied in the past, although neither Huba, who wasn’t with the LWA at the time of the denial, or council, knew why it was denied.
