Reilly Road Funds

    The city of Wichita Falls now has the authority to borrow up to $30,000 dollars for a new Automated Dispensing Station at the Reilly Road Water Fill Station. Approval for the funds came from the Wichita County Commissioners Court during their special session meeting earlier this morning, the motion passed 5-0. Wichita County Judge Woody Gossom said the new system is essential to help rural water users get the water they need.
    Currently the fill station is manned from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 at night and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. for users to fill they must be present at those hours. The new automated station system will allow users to access their water at all hours. An electronic log will be kept of users who use the station.
    The users must first get a signed form from their County Commissioner, then set up an account with the the city of Wichita Falls to get your water from the fill station. The theory is that once the system is put in place users will be able to enter their account and pin number in order to get water. When a user takes more than the 7,500 gallons of per household limit the system will be able to link and fine that user for using too much water. There is currently no timetable for these new system installments, and according to Gossom the city the $30,000 is not the actual cost just an early estimate.
