WOODS CROSS — The City Council will hold a public hearing at its Oct. 15 meeting to take public input on the proposed $4.5 million water bond to finance a water treatment plant to remove tetrachloroethylene from the city's drinking water.

Water rates would be increased $5 per month to cover the cost of repaying the bonds and operating the facility. The City Council is also considering raising the rates an additional $4 per month to fund a Capital Replacement Program, which will replace aging infrastructure annually to avoid the costly task of having to replace it all at the same time.

The hearing is 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall. All interested water users are encouraged to attend.
