CARTHAGE — The Carthage/West Carthage Utility Management Board approved a $160,478 budget for water filtration in 2013-14 on Wednesday.

Board members also began discussing the intermunicipal agreement to change the time frame when adjustments are made to each municipality’s contributions.

The villages pay in accordance with estimated total use. West Carthage pays approximately 33.34 percent and Carthage pays 66.66 percent.

With use fluctuating, one or the other often ends up paying more than its share. Changing when the averages are calculated may equalize the payments and place them in line with when water service is provided.

Board members tabled the proposal to give themselves more time to review it.
