Whitehouse City leaders make agreement with Tyler over water

The water woes are over for Whitehouse residents.

The city of Whitehouse has decided to sign a 25 year contract with Tyler. Whitehouse can get out of the deal at any time without having to pay any fees.

"I'm glad it's resolved. It's been a long hard negotiation process. I know it's created some concern about the community and staffers worked hard to do what we thought was best for the community and it's finally worked out," said Ronny Fite, the Whitehouse city manager.

"I think this is a very very fair contract and I think it is something that is good both for Tyler and the city of Whitehouse," said Mayor Barbara Bass of Tyler.

All that's left now is for the Tyler city council to agree on the contract.

They're set to meet on that September 10th.
