Brighton council is expected to discuss sewage treatment options yet again at its meeting tonight.
In a motion to be voted on tonight, councillors Baker and Tadman suggest it’s time to stop wasting taxpayers’ money in attempts to bring Brighton’s sewage treatment operation up to standard.
The motion states that over $630,000 has been spent with two engineering companies and issues still have not been resolved.
The motion calls for staff to issue a Request for Proposals for the construction of a mechanical sewage treatment plant to replace the current lagoon and constructed wetland system.
A mechanical sewage plant is estimated to cost between 20 and 25 million dollars.
Brighton council meets at 6:30 tonight in council chambers.
