The Coming City Council met in a special meeting on Monday, June 22 at 1 p.m. at City Hall. The meeting was to discuss the lowest bid received on the wastewater project funded by a $1,045 million loan from the USDA Rural Development. The loan is for 40 years. A year ago, engineer, John Selig described the project during a public meeting about the project as “rehab four of the major lift stations in town, which is Lockwood Drive, Bryan, one by the swimming pool and one on Lee Drive over the north side of the high school, baseball field.” Selig said that he wrote the funding application in a manner to take care of the issue that they’re having down on the south end of Fifth Street where it hits Sand Street.
