Dis­cus­sion about the costs involved in the con­struc­tion of a new water treat­ment plant took place at this week’s meet­ing of the Napoleon City Coun­cil.

The mayor was unhappy with fig­ures that were pre­sented to coun­cil a year ago regard­ing the esti­mated cost of con­struct­ing a new water treat­ment plant com­pared to a cur­rent esti­mate on the project.

The dis­cus­sion arose after the city engi­neer requested action from coun­cil regard­ing a $1,908,900 con­tract with Jones and Henry Engi­neers for design on a new water treat­ment plant.

In 2012, coun­cil was told that con­struc­tion of a new plant would cost $18 mil­lion.

Now the plant is esti­mated to cost approx­i­mately $24 million.
