Sharp stated there is grant money available this year that needs to be used. He stated that he needs a list of projects right away from each city/town indicating what they want to add to this year's jobs so they can be priced out and decisions made.
The board accepted the recommendation for the conventional water treatment plant in Ferron City at the existing site at an estimated cost of $2.7 Million. The board agreed to ask for 75 percent grant and 25 percent loan from the Community Impact Board in June for this project.
