City Manager Amy Nelson says the cost of each potential location will have a bearing…

The three potential locations include next to the existing “new” plant, near the collector well in Paddle Wheel Point, or at a location in the north east industrial park.

She says planning on the collector well is at the point where the water plant location needs to be finalized………

Nelson says she would like the commission to make a decision…………

The city is prepared to spend up to thirty million dollars for a new water treatment plant.
The commission meets tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 7pm at the RTEC building.
