In other business Monday the council:
reviewed plans for a new water treatment plant, estimated at just over $3 million in cost, which is expected to be advertised for bids in early spring according to Kelli Scott, Snyder and Associates, the city's engineers. The structure is planned for city property west of the existing plant at West Carleton and South County Road (U.S. Highway 63). It will be of precast concrete construction with brick veneer on the exterior. It will replace the city's 50-year-old treatment facility. (See accompanying engineer's drawings).
