JAY

Broken line

closes school

The difficult-to-reach location of a broken 16-inch water line slowed down repair crews Tuesday, and city officials said the community might soon be without water. “We will probably run out of water,” said Charlotte Howe, city clerk. “If we do there will be a 48-hour boil order enacted.” Jay public schools and the Delaware County Courthouse were closed Tuesday, and schools were expected to be closed again Wednesday.
