The Madison County Industrial Development and Building Authority has installed numerous water lines and implemented a commercial sewer system in the Hull area in recent years.
The group intends to keep up the expansions.
The IDA approved a resolution Feb. 20 seeking funds from the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority for 2013.
The IDA is applying for $1.6 million for water services expansion and $2 million for sewer service expansions.
No specific projects were listed in the resolution. But the document said the IDA is “committed to constructing and installing new water and sewer mains and service in Madison County.”
Industrial authority executive director Marvin White noted that the county had to apply for GEFA funding by this month to have any chance of getting funds for 2013.
In other matters Monday, the authority approved an intergovernmental water supply and sewage agreement with the city of Hull. The document is essentially a continuation of the previous water and sewer agreement between the two entities, with the city agreeing to handle water and sewer services for the town.
Also Feb. 20, utility director Steve Shaw reported that 779 customers were billed for water services by the county in January, up 10 from December.
