Sewer Project Contract Awarded In Paulding

The Pauld­ing Vil­lage Coun­cil has voted to enter into a con­tract for phase II of the com­bined sewer over­flow project, while at the same time, it talked about the finan­cial hard­ships pre­sented by the Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency.

The Cres­cent News reports that Pauld­ing coun­cil has passed a res­o­lu­tion autho­riz­ing the mayor to enter into a con­tact for phase II of the com­bined sewer sep­a­ra­tion project, pro­vided the vil­lage receives approval of a con­struc­tion loan from the Ohio Water Devel­op­ment Author­ity. Coun­cil approved the project, at a cost of $4,408,815.45, dur­ing its spe­cial meet­ing Mon­day. Now that the con­tract has been awarded, vil­lage offi­cials can sub­mit an appli­ca­tion for a con­struc­tion loan from the OWDA. The dead­line to sub­mit the loan for approval this month is Sun­day, Feb. 15. The OWDA board meets the third Thurs­day of each month to con­sider loan appli­ca­tions.

If approved, the project should get under­way in April.
