City, school district continue sewer talk

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, November 16, 2013

In the wake of voters’ rejection of a school bond that would have allowed Paradise ISD to update its wastewater plant, Paradise city officials will continue talking with school district officials on what to do about wastewater.

At its meeting Monday, the council will outline a proposed contract with the school district to provide wastewater treatment services to district buildings and facilities.

As one step in that direction, the council will consider approving access easement agreements for PISD water lines.

Council members will also hear an update on an agreement with the school district regarding the collection of sewer fees.

Halfway through the agenda, the council is scheduled to meet in closed session with its attorney.

During the open portion of the meeting, the council will also:

  • select a firm to conduct the city’s annual audit and another to inspect the water tower;
  • discuss fees for animal control services, mobile food vendor permits and water-tap installation;
  • hear from the Paradise Historical Society regarding a historical marker;
  • review the EDC’s budget;
  • consider purchasing a lighted sign for the school zone; and
  • permit the EDC to paint fire hydrants.

The meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, is open to the public.
