CROWN POINT | The City Council has approved a request to connect a home in an unincorporated area to city water.
The homeowner said a water well on the property at 861 Greenview Drive is failing, prompting the need to tie into the city water system.
The owner agreed to a 25 percent surcharge added to the cost of city water and to not object should the city attempt to annex the area that includes his home.
The area is outside the city's eastern limit.
The Board of Public Work and Safety endorsed approving the request.
