A Special Message from Your City Adminstrator
Ladies and gentlemen: I would like to encourage each of you to attend the City Council meeting Tuesday evening May 27 at 7: 00 P.M. to offer support or testimony to help the City demonstrate you are behind the City’s efforts to pursue a Community Development Block Grant [CDBG] application. This support action will enhance the City’s prospects of receiving a grant to replace the City’s three  aging lift stations –which collectively break down on average every six days reflecting the fact they are on their last legs. The City spends nearly $4000 a month keeping them operable but it is only a matter of time before one or more of them shuts down completely. The Citizens of North Bonneville simply do not have the 1 Million dollars necessary to replace these lift stations without outside funding assistance.
I would also have you consider writing a letter of support attesting to our plight and requesting CDBG’s participation through their grant program to help ameliorate this capital facilities issue. If you are interested in providing written support I have provided a link to a draft letter for your convenience. I would appreciate the support letter within a couple weeks if that is possible.
Thank you for this consideration – Steven
