Water was the hot button agenda item at the Bruceville town council meeting on Tuesday night.
Items started off with the vacuum station at the waste water treatment facility took a power surge. The council approved the $3,000 for the repairs.
Also at the meeting, it was announced that Bruceville will be upgrading their water infrastructure. The town has been working with the Southern Indiana Development Corporation along with Midwestern Engineers. The current setup has lead to citations from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.
The new setup would include a 60,000 gallon water tank, would replace many water mains, and would upgrade the water meters to an automated system.
The project is expected to cost around $1.6 million dollars.
And finally, the council approved to amend an ordinance so the town could charge J-F-S Milling, the new feed mill in Bruceville for Farbest Foods for use of the waste water system. Under the amendment, it would cost the mill $169 per month for 16,000 gallons of waster water and $8 for every 1,000 gallons thereafter.
