The Department of Public Works has provided community members with a special informational resource regarding the Wastewater Treatment Facility Headworks upgrade proposed on the 2018 Town Meeting Day ballot.
Winooski voters are asked;
“Shall general obligation bonds of the City of Winooski in an amount not to exceed One Million, Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars ($1,450,000) be issued for planning, design, and construction of capital improvements to the City’s wastewater treatment plant, including a new headworks structure housing a mechanical screen and grit removal system and a garage building, at a total estimated cost of $1,450,000? Of this funding One Million, Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,200,000) is expected to be eligible for funding from the State Revolving Loan Fund for the new headworks improvements. Repayment is intended to come from the enterprise fund, subject to any reduction for applicable state and federal grants-in-aid and any applicable general funds.”
