Albion City Council took another step last Tuesday night, Oct. 11, toward construction of the new city wastewater treatment plant.
The council authorized execution of a $3 million loan from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality to the city.
The total estimated project cost is $4 million, but the city has been notified it will receive forgiveness of $250,000 in loan principal from DEQ and is also expected to qualify for a $250,000 small town grant from DEQ.
The city also has $500,000 in reserve funds to help with the cost of the new plant.
