Attica water tower upgrade coming soon

ATTICA – Attica Village Administrator Greg Martin told council members Thursday night Gateway Tank would be installing the aeration system in the water tower April 8. The tower should be out of use for four to five days and bulk water sales are to be stopped for that period. Homeowners should not notice changes in their water pressure during the process.

Martin said engineer Marvin Gnagy is to oversee the project and council extended appreciation to Gnagy for his assistance to the village in formulating the water distribution optimization plan and the trihalomethane reduction evaluation study and implementation of solutions to those issues.

All soil borings for the lagoon location and new wastewater treatment plant have been obtained and engineer Lyn Makeever is to accomplish the surveying this week, according to Martin.

Martin also assured residents that potholes are to be filled soon.

Fiscal Officer Pat Krebs reported $740,433.75 in all funds. She said the 2011-12 audit has been completed but it will be several months until the final report is received.

Police Chief Keith Turner said AEP has been contacted about the outage of two street lights.

The first farmers market in downtown Attica is set for July 6. Interested vendors may call Jeff Painter at (419) 426-7200 or the village office at (419) 426-9611.

Members heard the first reading of an ordinance setting pay rates of park seasonal employees, including manager at $8.15 an hour, assistant manager at $8.05 an hour and lifeguards at $7.85 an hour.

Council is to meet at 7:30 p.m. April 11.
