Brandon City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposed borrowing of $16 million for the construction of a new chemical building and upgrades to the chemical delivery process at the city’s water-treatment facility.
The hearing will be held during Monday night's regular council meeting at City Hall.
Pending there are no major objections, council may give first reading to a borrowing bylaw, allowing the city to make an application to the Municipal Board for approval.
The project will also replace the use of chlorine gas with sodium hypochlorite as a disinfectant to eliminate the facility’s most hazardous material.
Although the city was approved for $4.5 million from the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund, split equally with the federal government, the funds will not be enough to cover the construction costs for the new building.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the council chamber.
