By Litchfield property the Washington City Council promised last night to give the Seacrest Marine company an answer within 10 Days on its request for installation of a sewer line to its Plant site West of the City. Seacrest which recently acquired the old Beaufort county prison Camp property for erection of a boat building Plant requested that the City install the line with the company providing the lift stations. City policy provides that sewer lines run outside the City be paid for by the property owners asking the service. The anticipated Cost of a six Inch line to the Seacrest property was put at $18,000, half for material and half for labor. Edward Rodman attorney for the firm said that the policy should not apply in this Case because the line would go to an area being considered by local interests As an Industrial Park Rodman contended that a sewer line run for such a purpose would not violate present policy. Beaufort county has agreed to pay $25,000 for materials for a water line for the proposed Plant which is to be1 built at an estimated Cost of $3,500,000. The City has agreed to provide labor in an equal amount in the installation. This formula was used in attracting Hamilton Beach to locate North of the City.
