Junction to get

wastewater loan:

State Sen. Tom Buford, R-Nicholasville, announced Thursday that Junction City's $143,000 loan to upgrade sewerage to Phlyben Village and eliminate the pump station at Toon's Curve has been approved by the Capital Projects and Bond Oversight Committee.

The money will be used to design the project. Many federal and state grants require that the design be complete before applying. Junction City will use $70,000 in tobacco settlement money to pay for the rest of the $213,500 project.

Early estimates put the cost of construction at $3.5 million. Buford said that Junction City will likely begin construction in less than a year.


It will improve service to about 165 households in Boyle and Lincoln counties that have documented health hazards.
