Rainy River Town Council held a special meeting Monday evening to deal with two items.
The first involved accepting a proposal from the KGS Group to do a Trihalomethane (THM) reduction feasibility study at the local water treatment plant.
THM levels have been higher than acceptable in the local drinking water; albeit the water is said to be still safe.
The study will point council in the proper direction for reducing the THM levels in the most cost effective way.
New employee
Council also agreed to hire Ben Drennan on the town crew. He fills the vacancy left by long time employee Dan Godin who recently moved away.
