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 [3] 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
