Commissioners will receive a presentation from the city's hired engineers, who have prepared preliminary plans for a $40.5 million expansion of the city's Wastewater Treatment Plant, 1400 E. Eighth.

Officials from Black & Veatch, the city's consultants for water and sewer systems, will be on hand to explain the finding of their design study.

Bottom line: The work would cost $40.5 million, construction would start in the spring of next year and the expanded facility would be ready to start treating sewage in the fall of 2002.

Steve Phillips, who heads the city's consulting team, will be on hand to explain the report and answer questions.

The company already is working on a rate study, which will recommend setting utility rates at levels adequate to bring in enough money to pay for the project and others during the next five years.

Water and sewer projects are financed with revenues from monthly water and sewer utility bills.
