Carey Takes Another Step Toward New Wastewater Treatment Plant

4/2/19 – 7:27 A.M.

Carey took another step toward a new wastewater treatment plant Monday. Village council approved a motion of intent to award Peterson Construction a contract to rebuild the plant. The company offered a bid of a little more than $10 million for the contract.

Council could approve the contract as soon as April 15th. The village will pay for the project using a half-percent income tax set aside for sewer improvements. They are also waiting on approval for a low-interest loan from the Ohio Water Development Authority Water Pollution Control Fund.

Construction could start this summer. It would take about two years to finish.
