Twin Falls City Council Approves Wastewater Bond Vote
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) On Monday, the Twin Falls City Council met to discuss the future of the city's wastewater facility.
And in the end unanimously approved an ordinance that will be put to a vote this coming May.
Currently the city of Twin Falls is at full capacity when it comes to its wastewater.
To help fight the problem, the city formed a citizens committee and was asked to come up with a game plan for the future.
Last week, that committee came back to the council and proposed a 20 year – 38 million dollar Revenue Bond.
The ordinance approving the bond, which was approved by the council Monday night, will be put to a vote this coming May.
“We understand that there is going to be a cost associated with it. But the investment comes and we will be able to build new schools… that industries will continue to grow. which is important to us as individuals that live here… who work here… who want this city to be a great city.”
Said Co-Chair of the Citizens Committee, Christopher Reid.
If approved by the voters, residents in city limits would see a $5.21 increase in their monthly sewer bill.
Over the next few months the committee will be providing informational meetings city wide, answering any and all questions locals might have about the upcoming May 21st vote.
