Public meeting on Snake River wastewater plant tonight

Daily News staff report

The Summit Board of County Commissioners will hold a special meeting tonight for public discussion on the wastewater treatment facility in the Keystone area.The utility operation is administered by Summit County government, but a group of citizens wants to form a special district to assume management and ownership of the facility.The Snake River plant is believed to be one of only two plants in the state administered by county government. The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. at the Keystone Fire Station. County administrators will give a short presentation, then the commissioners will hear public comments on the proposal. The subject of becoming a sanitation district has been discussed during citizen advisory meetings in the past, but the decision to remain within the county has always prevailed. Now that the utility has acquired substantial cash reserves with the help of increased tap fees, citizens are pursing ownership once again. The meeting will serve as an information and feedback session between the commissioners, interested service area customers and the Snake River Wastewater Treatment Plant Citizens Advisory Committee.For more information from the advisory committee, contact Dave Morris at (970) 390-1362 or evenings at (970) 468-6342.
