Lula ready to start work on new sewer line location

By Marc Eggers Anchor / Reporter

LULA – Lula City Council members heard an update from City Manager Dennis Bergin on the long discussed and much debated “Sewer Line -I” project under consideration by the municipality at their voting session Monday evening. 

No one stepped forward to offer public comment either for or against the estimated $1.4-million project during the meeting.

“We’ve been talking about this for about a year,” Bergin said following the meeting.

Bergin told council members about a recent effort to provide interested parties some of the specifics on the proposed project.

“Last Friday we had a Public Information meeting because we’re soon to be out surveying the properties and doing some environmental studies on the proposed, possible route for development and how this will serve the Belton Bridge/ Highway 365 area,” Begin explained.

Bergin said the meeting was “fairly well attended” by “landowners that might be affected or touched…by that sewer line and in anticipation of us having surveyors come out on their property in the next two weeks.”

Bergin said he expects the exact path of the sewer line to be known in about two months.

“It’s about two miles of line and it’s all gravity feed.  If they approve the entire project it will actually eliminate what we call the 5th Street pump station, because it’s all a gravity line.”
