Receivership is another option for Pratt

Kanawha County commissioners learned recently that the town of Pratt has $140,000 in tax liens levied against it and the town-owned water company, and as a last restort the town could be dissolved. That wouldn't get rid of the debt to the IRS...that would be collected when the town's assets were sold. Another solution besides dissolving the town may be to place it in receivership, which means someone would be appointed to oversee the finances. Kanawha County leaders will take up the subject again in September. Pratt's population is about 600.
