The Town of Dubois requested emergency grant funding from the State Loan and Investment Board (SLIB) to replace the liner in cell #2 at the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
During the SLIB meeting today, August 6th, they approved $194,400, the total requested, in emergency Mineral Royalty Grant funding to finance the project. The remaining 10% of the match funding, $21,600, will be provided by the town from the sewer reserves.
The tear in the liner of cell #2 was discovered last summer, and could only be fixed by replacing the liner completely. The complete application and details of the project provided to SLIB can be viewed here.
