Washington City Hall is passing along a warning to all residents of the city.  City Clerk Illa Earnest says they have received numerous phone calls from residents about a letter being circulated about service for water lines.  Earnest says the city repairs any problems from the main to the curb box or with the meter.

She adds the property owner is responsible for any work that would need to be done with the rest of the line.  Earnest says the letter asking for insurance coverage to cover the cost of the line is a scam and warns all residents to disregard the letter.

Here is a copy of the scam letter and contact Washington City Hall with any further questions.
