STURGIS, S.D. – After approving a resolution in September, the Sturgis Council held a public hearing for a state SRF loan application that, if given the ok, would pay for a couple of large wastewater projects.
The projects include construction of a new 15-inch P.V.C. sewer trunk line for new development off Avalanche Road and rehabilitation for aging infrastructure along Williams, Dudley and Miller Streets.
The city is seeking approximately $10.39 million dollars.
AE2S Engineering completed a comprehensive facility plan identifying the community’s most significant needs over the next 20 years. Joseph Noble is with AE2S.
Residents of Sturgis may see a surcharge on their monthly water bill to help pay for the project. Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie says based on 3,855 accounts, the approximate per account monthly debt cost would be $11.10.
The city is now preparing to send the application to see if they are awarded the loan.
