CIP considers revisions to water/sewer plan
During its regular Sep. 03, 2020 meeting, the Forney Capital Improvements Advisory Committee met to review proposed changes for water and sewer plan.
- Mr. Richard Dormier briefed the committee on proposed changes. Ms. Holler asked about uncompleted projects - Mr. Dormier said some expected development did not occur. This is a 10-year plan, must be reviewed every 5 years. Much of the growth expected for the 10 years (in the current plan) has occurred in 5 years. Mr. Shimkus asked about oversized lines - that could happen if Windmill Farms approves a proposed project, and the city is able to work with them. If the city does it alone, could need a 24 inch line. Mr. Dormier presented a proposed timeline for updating the plan: Two public hearings will be held by council. Forney has been proactive (on water / sewer) infrastucture.
Mr. Shimkus asked about water capacity - Mr. Dormier said city's in good shape, just completed 2nd phase of pump station two, adding capacity. Wasn't needed 5 years ago. This will be reimbursed in the proposed CIP plan.
