The City Council authorized an application for a Community Development Block Grant at their regular city council meeting on March 11, 2024 for a water system improvement project in the city.  The grant request will be for $1.5 million dollars and if awarded, would be used for the design phase, along with permitting, environmental reporting cultural resources and other mandated requirements for a project of this scope.  The water system improvement project would secure additional water supply, improve our storage capacity, and improve water system reliability by constructing a new Middle Reservoir above SW 8th Avenue and drill new Well 10 near the South Reservoir along Hwy 11 at the south end of town.  For more information refer to the Water System Improvement Project Timeline document below.
