City accepts half payment from school district for geo-thermal well line repair

During a 15-minute, year-end meeting on Tuesday, December 29, the Philip City Council agreed to accept half payment by the Haakon School District for repairs to the school's geo-thermal pipeline.

The school still stands behind its position of not being responsible for the line that first heats the Philip school buildings then heats several downtown businesses. Even so, as a one-time item, the school board said that it will pay half of the $6,200 repair bill.
