Franklin City Council on Monday gave its approval for the city’s General Authority to proceed on an estimated ten million-dollar sewer system renovation effort.
Earlier this summer, the General Authority presented Council a list of upgrades that were necessary to keep the system from experiencing serious deteriorations and breakdowns in the next decade or so. The projects that were approved are expected to be undertaken throughout the next eight years.
The General Authority must still find the financing for the renovations.
The projects would include, but not be limited to, an extensive series of repairs and replacements of sewer lines, and a rehabilitation of the city’s wastewater treatment plant.
