Resident fined for using boro hydrant

Coudersport Borough Water Authority held a special meeting Wednesday to discuss penal­ties and potential charges against a borough resident who used a borough hydrant to top off his family’s pool.

Todd Brown, a member of the Coudersport Area Municiple Authority, admitted to police when interviewed that he had used the hydrant to fill the last few inches of his pool in an ef­fort to speed up the process. Borough police did not cite Brown, but Water Authority mem­bers penalized Brown with a $300 fine. He must also pay $250 as restitution for the water.

Authority members also fined John Rotello, an Austin resident, $150 for assisting Brown in connecting to the hydrant.

Both men were given 20 days to pay the fines. Brown paid his Thursday.
