Warsaw To Make Water Plant Repairs

Warsaw, IL – The Warsaw City Council will be making some repairs to its water plant a little sooner than expected. The council has declared its water plant a public health and safety emergency. City leaders say by doing so, the council can immediately address some needed repairs, instead of waiting to receive bids for the project. Following the vote, the council hired Tri-County Electric to make the electrical and computer repairs at a cost of no more than $35,000.

The council also approved the purchase of 2 new police cars for about $30,000. The cars would be leased with an option to buy after 5 years. Police Chief Brandon Norris says he will make cuts in his budget to clear up the money for the cars.
