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.
