City to hold open house July 10 on North 2 UEP

By Staff | Jun 20, 2017

Property owners with questions or concerns about the city’s North 2 Utilities Extension Project are being granted access to city staff to resolve those issues at an open house at City Hall on Monday, July 10.

The informational meeting for the owners of the nearly 9,000 parcels was announced at the City Council’s special meeting last week with new information just being updated, according to city public information manager Connie Barron.

Representatives for the project contractors and staff members will be available at the open house between 4 and 8 p.m. on July 10. Property owners can stop by any time during those hours to address their concerns.

City Council members urge property owners to attend that meeting and participate to fully understand the project and the benefits they will receive in return.

General project information will be available in Council Chambers. People can get answers to their financing questions in Conference Room 220. To see if you qualify for the city’s hardship program, visit Conference Room 224.

The city is expected to approve a State Revolving Finance loan debt ordinance at the next City Council meeting on July 24. The current rate for an SRF loan is less than 2 percent.

Once that is accomplished, a public hearing on the final assessment takes place on Aug. 2. Construction on the $269 million project is slated to start in August with a completion date of August 2019.
