LIBERTY - The city will do a feasibility study to see if the water plant is sufficient for the city and county's water supply or if it an expansion is needed.
The City Council agreed Monday night to hire a firm to do the study.
Mayor Steve Sweeney said he estimated the plant is at 70 percent capacity and East Casey County Water District plans to add more customers within the next few months.
"We need to look at expansion and the water producing capacity," he said. The council also will look at another source of water if needed, he said, adding the water plant will be outdated soon. The city and county gets its water from Lake Liberty and the city treats the water.
In other matters, the council agreed to ask the Casey County 4-H Horse Club to vacate property on the south side of town the city has for industrial development.
