In a review session Monday evening, Chillicothe Council heard about progress in City Services.
Director David Fishel spent about an hour covering needed work that he is coordinating. While city crews are gradually tackling 36 projects in water and sewer services, he has a short list of consultants to choose for $27 million dollars of improvements to the wastewater treatment plant over about a year.
Fishel says he's hit some bumps in the road, but he stays flexible. One bump is that the replacement radio-read water meters the city has been installing over six to eight years are no longer being manufactured, and they must reassess how to keep moving ahead.
And, It's up to council to approve the proposed 4% sewer rate hike...but Fisher pointed out that currently it's about 50% below the state average.
