Commission members were updated regarding the need for a grinding
station at the wastewater treatment plant.

been encountering regarding trash that is introduced into the system.

save wear and tear on the equipment at the lift station.
They will get more specifics in regard to cost and provide the
details to commission members before a decision is made.
