City Takes Next Step to Replace Alton Vacuum Sewer

During this month’s Lawrenceburg City Council meeting, the city took the next step for the upcoming replacement project for the Alton vacuum sewer.  The system was installed in the Alton area back in the 1970’s and has not provided reliable service since.

The project has been on going with the city seeking grants and loans from the HUD Community Development Block Grant Program.  Governor Matt Bevin and city officials announced at the end of October that the city received a $992,500 grant for the $1.98 million project.

At the council meeting, the council approved a resolution accepting the provisions of the grant and allowing Mayor Goodlett to enter into contract with the Bluegrass Area Development District to provide administrative services which is required by the grant.  Mayor Goodlett explained that the city has only a few more actions to take before the project will begin.

In addition, city auditor, Alan Zumstein, CPA, gave a clean audit report for the city, and Gary Gaines from the Anderson County Habitat for Humanity asked for help resolving a city held lien on a prospective piece of property for the next Habitat house they are planning to build.  They also announced that city offices will be closed on December 23rd, 26th, 30th and January 2nd for Christmas and New Years.
