Twin Falls to ask for Bond to Pay for Updates to Waste Water Plant

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)- Its likely the city of Twin Falls will be asking its citizens to pass a multi-million dollar bond resolution this summer for upgrades to its waste water facility. Monday night the 37 member wastewater citizen advisory committee presented the plan to city council. The council could vote on the ordinance by next week.

They’ll be asking voters to pass a $38 million dollar bond that will double the capacity of the city’s wastewater treatment facility. Lori Ward is co-char of the citizen committee made the presentation to city council. She says most of the people she talked to saw the need for increasing capacity to the city’s sewer system.

The project will serve the city for 20 years and will cost the average residential user about $5.21 cents more to their bill. After the city council passes the resolution, the bond will be placed on the May ballot for voters to decide.

City officials say the facility is at its limits of capacity and cannot accommodate any more. Without increased capacity residential and industrial growth would be at a stand still.
