GRANDVIEW – The city of Grandview has just two years to use loaned funds secured through the state of Washington’s Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.
The funds were secured for the purpose of replacing a water main on Old Inland Empire Highway, according to City Administrator Cus Arteaga.
This past Tuesday he told the Grandview City Council the loan funding was secured with the hope of securing additional Surface Transportation Program monies to improve the roadway, but the transportation funding was not successfully secured.
Because there is time limit on the drinking water loan, Arteaga requested approval for moving forward with the replacement of the water main on Old Inland Empire Highway. He told the council that completing the design for the project may give the city better standing when it applies for additional funding in the future.
The council by a 5-0 vote approved the request to sign an agreement with Huibretgtse, Louman Associates to complete the design of the project at the cost of more than $189,000.
