Pinewood to hold meeting on water system project Thursday


After receiving $9.6 million in federal funding last year to expand its water system, the Town of Pinewood will hold another informational meeting to update the public on the project Thursday.

Pinewood Mayor Sarah Mathis distributed a news release on Thursday's meeting late last week.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development award funding will expand Pinewood Water System into the nearby Rimini and Panola communities.

The mayor and other town officials will make a brief presentation at the meeting and provide answers to frequently asked questions on the project, according to the news release.

Thursday's meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at Pinewood Community Center, 130 Epperson Lane, in Pinewood.
