|Sterlington aldermen approve wastewater bid|
Construction on a new wastewater treatment plant to process Sterlington's sewage could begin as soon as the end of August.
The Sterlington board of aldermen unanimously approved a $1.6-million bid submitted by G. D. Womack to build the new facility. The board acted on the matter Tuesday at its regular meeting.
Sterlington Mayor Vern Breland said construction of the plant would begin as soon as the Louisiana Community Development Block Grant program signs off on construction plans.
"They will give us the go ahead on the bids," said Breland. "I'm hoping that by the end of August or the first of September we'll begin construction."
The new facility will be able to treat up to one million gallons of effluent per day.
Sterlington officials said previously the new facility was necessary because of growth in the Sterlington area.
In other business, aldermen unanimously approved the adoption of an ordinance to govern the hiring of new personnel, including new police officers.
Under terms of the new ordinance, any police officers hired would be required to become post-certified within one year of their employment. Also, new officers would be required to commit to at least two years of service after they are hire to prevent a loss of city investment in training officers.
Breland said the ordinance was a good move for the town and everyone "was on the same page."
"Everyone is happy with this ordinance," Breland said. "It's in place now, so any police officers hired will fall under these new standards."
Breland also pointed out the last officer hired has agreed to abide by the new regulations.
Meanwhile, aldermen approved the annexation of several parcels of land along U.S. Highway 165 North near Marion State Bank.
The annexation paves the way for construction to begin on access roads for the new Sterlington Elementary School, which is set to open sometime in the next year.
