LIBERTY - The City Council authorized the mayor Wednesday to review and sign documents for grant and loan applications for a proposed 12-mile sewer line from Liberty to Dunnville.
The city will seek funding from the Department of Local Government Community Development Block Grant Program, Economic Development Administration, Rural Development and PRIDE - Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment. The application is expected to be complete by the Oct. 1 deadline.
The proposal is to extend sewer service to Tarter Gate Co. which plans to build an addition that could add jobs for up to 150 people.
Richard Montgomery, a local surveyor, suggested the city design the sewer line to serve other people, who would help pay the debt. He was assured there will be no rate increase for citizens already on the city's sewer service.
