SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Board of Aldermen took a vote Thursday night whether to switch to river water or install filters into the pipes.
It was a 4 to 1 vote in which the Board of Aldermen voted to switch the whole city of Saltillo to river water.
This is an estimated cost of $140,000 and would take about three months before the city could see clear water again.
If the city had decided to install filters, it would have cost the city $1,300,000.
Commissioner Brandon Presley said he came into the public meeting with the intent to have a decision set in motion even if it took all night and that decision was made.
No time has been set at this time when the transition will take place.
