City Engineer Damon Johnson gave a quick update on city projects. First
Mr. Johnson said he had received a city bypass draft from the highway
department. He said the bypass is not currently on the table but needs to be
included in our long term plan. Mr. Johnson said he and the Mayor will review
the 5 or 6 options presented by the highway department.
The Wastewater Treatment Plant will not be in permit this month primarily
