Airport grant, military ops, city water request to be heard by Williams City Council tonight
The Williams City Council has several items to discuss on their Jan. 9 agenda including whether to extend city water to Lazy E Subdivision.
A request was made by Lazy E subdivision property owners enquiring about the feasibility of the city providing water service to their homes, which do not currently have water service, are in the city limits, and are adjacent to a subdivision with city water lines.
The property owners have expressed a willingness to repay the city at an interest rate of 3 percent per year for a repayment period not to exceed 10 years, the cost of which shall be added to their water bill.
The total project cost is estimated to be $241,707, which would result in a monthly repayment in the amount of $2,334 and estimated total interest revenues to the city in the amount of $38,366.
Other items on the agenda:
The city council will also hear from the Boys and Girls Club regarding future projects and plans for the Williams community.
