City Septic to Sewer Program (S.T.E.P)
The City Council authorized and received a study to convert all properties currently utilizing septic tanks to a centralized collection and treatment system. This represents about 1029 properties within the City’s limits. The study identified all un-sewered areas, the most practical system to serve each area, and the construction priority based on environmental and economic conditions. The study estimated a total of $6 million in utility cash reserves for this initiative, pursuant to Resolution 26-2020. City Council has affirmed its decision to continue with the plan for 100% centralized sewer service within the City. The implementation is currently scheduled over an eight year time frame.
