Total cost is yet to be determined but we have allocated $750,000 from the utility bond funds and $200,000 from the General Fund Bond. This project will construct the sanitary sewer (wastewater) collection system that will serve the downtown area. The gravity system will be connected to a new lift station across Bluford Avenue from the current City Hall. Initial construction will provide a basic backbone system; some portions of the system will be built as warranted by development. The budget allocated from the General Fund Bond may be used to offset the utility connection cost of targeted private development efforts.
There is no specific timeline for this project. The initial core system construction and subsequent pipeline installation will likely be conducted as part of several roadway projects.
