Praise for Huntington Sanitary Board and Lou Akers by Resident

Having attended council meetings and committee meetings for years, the expletives spoken about the operations of the Huntington Sanitary Board have been infinitesimal.

The negativity ended Monday night during Huntington City Council's Good and Welfare section.

A woman stepped forward with praise for HSB/Water Quality Director Lou Akers. Why? He and his employees provided exceptional service to her situation with stormwater. In particular, she applauded "contact with a person" rather than a machine.

The HSB and Water Quality Board had an item on council's agenda: They are purchasing the former SS Logan Building to consolidate all operations. The move will save $55,000 a year. The current West Huntington office (former post office and Westmor Theater is month to month).

Council will vote on the purchase at its first August meeting.
