CROWN POINT | A request to connect a residence to the city water system has been approved by the Crown Point Board of Public Works and Safety.
A water well at 961 Greenview Drive is failing, prompting the need to connect to the city water system, the homeowner told officials.
The homeowner 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.
A final decision will be made by the Crown Point City Council.
