Jo Co Commission Approves Agreement For Public Workshops

Public workshops on the NW Water Line Project are now free to be scheduled and conducted now that the Johnson County Commissioners have approved an agreement between themselves and WWC Engineering.

County lanner Rob Yingling brought the agreement before the commissioners at their Tuesday meeting.

He explains the agreement further.

The next step, according to Yingling, will be to have a meeting with all the county, city and other local officials that need to be involved and then move on to organizing and implementing the public workshops.

The workshops will be for the public in the area of the pipeline project, to explain where the line will be built, who might be eligible to hook onto the water line, how they can do so and the costs involved.

One sure step for those outside the city limits is the need to form a special district that will allow non-city residents to hook uo to the municipal water line.

The commissioners approved the agreement with WWC Engineering for a not-to-exceed fee of $18,200.

No public wprkshops have been scheduled at this time but will be done as soon as possible.
