After a very long process, Elmore City secured their last permit from the Department of Environmental Equality to proceed with the water treatment plant project.
“This has been a long and drawn out process and we are very happy to see some progress being made,” said Lisa Rollings, City Clerk.
A water treatment plant for the city is part of a long term goal of producing their own water, which will lead to the possibility of grants, new water and sewer lines in the next couple of years and repair to city streets.
Water treatment was part of the cities Capital Improvement Plan.
EC updates their CIP every five years and are already in year number two of our current five year plan.
Residents are urged to make suggestions for the next five year plan by contacting any member of the Elmore City Planning Committee: Kim Chandler, Quentin Casey, Tom Luster, John Ferris or Chip Howard.
“Elmore City officials greatly appreciate the input from these local business owners and individuals who take the time to look ahead and see where our city is headed and what we might need down the road, literally, we need roads,” explained Rollings.
