The Town of Grand Island will hold a public hearing at 8 p.m. Tuesday to allow the town to make $1.3 million in mandated water/sewer improvements.
The capital improvement project will install 9,350 linear feet of 12-inch transmission water lines along Staley Road and transfer service to the new line. Wendel Engineering already has prepared a map and planned the report.
The total cost of $1.3 million will be financed by bonds, federal, state, county and local funds. The bonds will be financed by the collection of a special assessment within the sewer district, according to the public hearing notice.
Supervisor Nathan McMurray said it would be unfair for the 30 percent of residents who don't have access to sewers to be forced to pay for sewer updates.
