  2. August 2 Bond Issue Election For Upgrades To Jackson's Wastewater Treatment Facility

    On Tuesday, August 2, Jackson voters will be asked to vote on an issue for the use of revenue bond funds to pay for repairs and upgrades to aging equipment at the wastewater treatment plant.  The $10.1 million bond issue project will provide extended years of service from the existing 33-year-old plant and add treatment capacity for future community growth, as outlined in the Wastewater Facility Plan.

     

    Revenue bonds provide the least expensive method to pay for sewer improvements in Jackson. Bonds allow costs to be spread over 20 years, minimizing the rate impact on current customers.

     

    If the city’s use of revenue bonds is approved, sewer customers will pay for the borrowed money with a 10% rate increase, or $3.15 per month for the average 5,000 gallon-per-month household. The current rate for 5,000 gallons per month is $31.41.  The proposed 10% increase would make the rate $34.56 in 2023.

     

    If this revenue bond proposal does not pass, failures of aging equipment could require extremely expensive emergency repairs to prevent the release of untreated wastewater into the environment. Without the upgrades for additional treatment capacity, Jackson could not support continued community growth.

     

    Tours of the plant will be held on Thursday, July 21 at 4 pm and 5:30 pm. Both the public and the media are invited and encouraged to attend.

     

    More details, including a project list, are available on the City of Jackson’s website at www.JacksonMo.org
