Paradise pursues sewer

Town awards $1.25 million contract for system plan

The Paradise Town Council took a significant step toward pursuing a sewer system on Tuesday (Jan. 14), awarding a $1.25 million contract to HDR Engineering. The consultant will design a treatment plant site, analyze environmental constraints, coordinate permitting and provide public outreach and support.

The town will use $800,000 in grant funding from the state and $172,000 from the USDA to cover most of the cost, working with the State Water Resources Control Board to secure the difference.

The vote passed unanimously, with Mayor Greg Bolin and Vice Mayor Mike Zuccolillo recused.
