EARLY — The Early City Council will consider approving a financing agreement with the Texas Water Development Board for the construction of an eight-mile pipeline that will bring treated water to the city.
The city has applied for $6 million in financing through the water development board. “Hopefully it won’t be that much when it’s all said and done,” Early City Administrator Ken Thomas said.
The pipeline will run from the Brown County Water Improvement District’s water treatment plant to Salt Creek, where it will end in a two-million-gallon ground-level storage tank that will be built. The city will build a second line from the storage tank that will tie in to the city’s line at Early Boulevard, Thomas said.
The Zephyr Water Supply Corp. will also run a line to deliver water from the storage tank to its customers, he said.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. today at Early City Hall. The complete agenda follows:
