LANCASTER - City officials approved a sewer project Tuesday on U.S. 27 to add casing around the water line that runs through downtown.
Mayor Billy Moss said city engineers feel this will keep the city from making as many repairs to U.S. 27.
"This is so we don't have to go in every one or two years and fix a hole on U.S. 27," Moss said.
Moss said the city has spent between $15,000 and $20,000 in the past on new blacktop for the road, and he said this project should cut those costs. No start date for the project has been set.
In other business, the council approved a $10,000 request by the 911 center.
Moss said the money is a general appropriation, and that the amount was as much as the council could give to help the center keep doing its job.
