Garrett officials amend sewer service boundaries

OAKLAND — The Garrett County commissioners Wednesday unanimously approved an amendment to the Mountain Lake Park/Loch Lynn Heights sewer service area in the water and sewer master plan.

The last time the boundary was amended was in May 1982 and currently the ad valorem rate is 4 cents on $100 of the assessed value in the service area, according to Patrick Hudnall, administration and environmental chief of the Garrett County Department of Public Works Utilities Division.

John Wilson, a Mountain Lake Park resident, and another resident voiced concerns about having someone to service their sewer grinder pump.
