An agreement between the Dawson County Board of Commissioners and Etowah Water and Sewer Authority could bring more fire hydrants to the underserved areas of the county. The commission is expected to vote on the proposed intergovernmental agreement during tomorrow's 6 p.m. meeting. "As the authority replaces and extends water mains to improve or provide domestic water service, the county will provide for fire protection by paying a fixed cost per fire hydrant to be installed, which includes a proportionate amount to upsize the water main for fire flow requirements," said Brooke Anderson, authority general manager.
