RSD to seek $1.6M for sewer project

The Harrison County Regional Sewer District board met last Wednesday morning and made plans to update property owners and government officials about the New Salisbury Sanitary Sewer project, which has been approved for funding but has yet to break ground.
All necessary information has been sent to the Economic Development Agency for review. The EDA awarded a grant to pay for the project, which will bring a sanitary sewer system to the New Salisbury business corridor, but it first must review the plans before any construction can begin.
The district board plans to send a letter to property owners to keep them updated and will visit county officials in January.
The board will also visit the county council next month to ask for $1.6 million for the Lanesville Interstate 64 interchange sanitary sewer project which has been approved by the board of commissioners.
In other business, RSD treasurer Gary Davis informed the board that SSK, owners of the Berkshire Pointe mobile home park, located east of New Salisbury, are two payments behind to the district. The district owns and operates the wastewater treatment plant at the mobile home park.
The board also opened bids for the Lanesville school campus stormwater quality unit, which was awarded to Fulkerson contracting. The details of the contract will be negotiated before the board’s next meeting.
The sewer district’s next regular board meeting will be Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 8:30 a.m. at the Harrison County Community Foundation building in Corydon.
