LAHARPE — For more than 30 years, LaHarpe has sold water to residents between LaHarpe and Gas.

In so doing, the city collects an extra $5 a month from each of the 44 customers — enough, city officials said, to cover the costs needed to pay an employee to read meters one day a month, but not much else.

The problem, City Council members clarified Wednesday, is when the conversation turns to maintaining or repairing the 33-year-old, 4-inch water main.
