SURRY—With most of its conditions to be met by the county, minus annual payments of $200,000, the Surry Town Council voted to move forward with its decision to transfer its wastewater treatment systems to the Hampton Roads Sanitation District.
The Town Council had previously voted to deed its sewer systems to HRSD following a public hearing held in March, but with the prerequisite that the county keep several previously undisclosed agreements with the town.
The conditions were later revealed in a letter to the county to include cutting the town’s grass, emptying trash cans in “Oaks Park,” and annual payments of $200,000.
The Surry Board of Supervisors agreed earlier this month to comply with four of the town’s five conditions to deeding its systems, rejecting only its request for the annual payments.
