The town of Bethune has put the last pieces of the financial puzzle together for its long planned and awaited water system upgrade project. The water upgrade project, estimated at close to $3 million, will be paid for with a combination of low cost loans, including a bond issue, and grant funds. After more than two years of submitting grant applications and putting together a bond package, the finances are finally in place, Councilman Don Witham reported.
