Cass Supervisors approve NW sewer/water loan source


August 3rd, 2011 by Ric Hanson

The Cass County Board of Supervisors approved a motion made during their meeting today (Wednesday) in Atlantic, that established 1st Whitney Bank and Trust in Atlantic, as the source for a loan not to exceed $555,000, for the purpose of funding the northwest Sewer & Water extension project. The board is waiting on additional information before determining the exact amount of the loan necessary, and the means for which it will be paid back.

One option under consideration, is using the Local Option Sales Tax to repay the loan over a few years. The loan will be used to plan and carry out the construction of a water and sanitary sewer project in the Amaizing Energy Urban Renewal Area, located just north of Atlantic.

The board also approved a change in job classification for Secondary Roads Employee Mick Sager, of Atlantic, from Operator 1 to District Working Foreman.
