Judge David W. Nibert has issued a temporary restraining order against the $5.2 million water project slated for sections of Calhoun County.

The complaint was filed by Bruce Caswell of Welding Inc. against the Mt. Zion PSD, Boyles and Hildreth Consulting Engineers, Inc and Mid-Atlantic Storage Systems, Inc., a company that the Mt. Zion PSD awarded the contract for water tanks.

Welding, Inc. claims Boyles and Hildreth refused to open their bid linking it to illegitimate stipulations related to requirements for a bid package.

Caswell claims he met the requirements.

A hearing is set in Calhoun Circuit Court on December 2 at 2 p.m., with the principal parties attending.

Ron Lane, Inc. of Arnoldsburg is also expected to take legal action against Boyles and Hildreth.

The Mt. Zion PSD has filed a request with the West Virginia Public Service Commission for a 30-day extension over the delivery of the PSD's records.

The WV Public Service Commission is investigating the PSD following a request of the Calhoun Commission, initially requesting records going back to 2006.

Another special meeting of the PSD is scheduled for Saturday evening at 6 p.m. at Arnoldsburg.
