DuBOIS — Sandy Township Engineer Perry Bowser gave an update on the process of possibly selling Sandy Township’s water systems at Monday’s Municipal Authority meeting.

“I have had two requests for additional information from one of the prospective purchasers, and I’ve been providing that information,” Bowser said.

One question was about the water contract that the township has with the City of DuBois, asking what part of the system it applies to, Bowser said. That was for the USDA loan — the project the township undertook to extend the water in the West Liberty area, and put the tank and the pump in.

The other question is a request about the sewer usage that the township bills its customers for since not all of the customers are sewer and water.

“They were not clear on how much we just bill for the sewer alone so I’m working on getting that information for them,” Bowser said.

On Feb. 15, the township learned that four entities are interested in purchasing its municipal authority — the City of DuBois, Aqua, Pennsylvania American and Suez.

Packets, including instructions to the interested parties on what steps to take next, were sent to those entities. The interested parties have until March 20 to respond with bid proposals.
