Reported by Bill Ewing as of December 10, 2012 the Village of Biggsville doesn’t have a contract with Dallas Rural Water because the do not have enough water to supply the village since the drought. The board might need to look into different options such as going in with Gladstone when they dig a new well or hooking up with Galesburg. The word from Shannon Duncan is to still move forward as if the contract is in place until told differently.
