(LAGRANGE) – Nearly 40 years ago a sewage treatment facility for the Howe area was identified as a significant need.
Last week the LaGrange County Regional Utility District closed on financing for the $17.4 million project and construction will begin this month.
District Board President Patrick Wiltshire called the finance package very unique: a collaboration of county and state government and the ITR Concession Company which runs the Indiana Toll Road.
Niblock Excavating of Bristol will build the sewer collection system at a cost of $9.6 million. Selge Construction of Niles will build the wastewater treatment plant near the northwest corner of State Road 9 and County Road 700 North at a cost of $4.4 million.
LaGrange County put up $1.7 million in Major Moves funds and $75,000 from the Redevelopment Commission.
