Town of Medaryville to Move Forward with Wastewater Upgrades

  
 
The town of Medaryville held a public hearing for the proposed wastewater system upgrade Monday night.

No person from the public spoke about the project so the Medaryville Town Council will move forward with the project. The council will be working with the Kankakee-Iroquois Regional Planning Commission to submit a Community Development Block Grant worth $450,000. The town is also expected to expend an estimated $400,000 in non-CDBG funds on the project. These funds will come from the town of Medaryville and a bond issue.

The council also went ahead and hired McMann for design work and University Research Consortium to conduct an income survey.
