The Vandalia City Council held a work session prior to its regular council meeting on Monday evening at which they discussed options with the city’s water treatment plant. For many months, the topic of the plant has been brought up as something that would need to be addressed in the future as the age of the plant and the various things that need to be upgraded as Mayor Rick Gottman says the current plant was built in the 1950s and is nearing the end of its viability.
And with the need for a new plant, Mayor Gottman says a water plant project is something for which the current and future sales tax that goes for infrastructure needs is meant to be used.
At the work session, Lee Beckman of Milano & Grunloh Engineers presented the city with three different options concerning the water plant. And we will hear about those options coming up tomorrow on Newscenter.
