The Town of Clay will receive a $50,000 emergency loan today through the office of Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito. "These funds will allow the town to make much needed improvements to its current water lines," she said.

The presentation of the $50,000 zero-interest loan will be made Friday (April 6) at 9:30 p.m. at the Clay County High School. The loan is sponsored by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh.

Water services have been disrupted much of this year in Clay County with boil water advisories. The town has been unable to pay certified water plant workers, in addition to numerous other problems. The town provides water to other public service districts in the county.

The town has had three mayors in the past few weeks, and has been unable to meet its financial obligations. Most of the municipal services have been disrupted, including police and street services. (SEE "Clay Continues In Crisis 3/30)

The local EMS has been forced to re-group and political controversy regarding mismanagement of town and county government has led to angry accusations and debates.
