Mayor wants $90M for water, sewer improvement contract
Published: October 12,2012
JACKSON — Mayor Harvey Johnson Jr. is pushing the Jackson City Council to approve a $90 million water and sewer improvement contract that project officials guarantee will pay for itself.
The Clarion-Ledger reports the project would be a major step toward addressing the city’s water and sewer infrastructure.
The project includes four major initiatives:
— Replacing the city’s antiquated water meters, which is expected to generate new revenue because old meters often read low.
— Upgrading the city’s utility billing system.
— Replacing broken equipment at the city’s two water plants.
— Repairing and upgrading the sewer collection system.
The city put out a request for proposals on the project earlier this year, and picked Siemens from three energy companies that applied.
