Here's to a successful and progressive New Year. Stay
tuned for upcoming events happening in Maize.
From the City Administrator - October, 2016:
As reported in
our last issue, plans to expand the
wastewater plant's operating capacity are a
necessity. The City's exponential growth
and development mandates this improvement.
Everything is now in place to begin the
process of designing and constructing the
upgrade. The $6 million project will double
the plant capacity from 500,000 gallons a
day to 1,000,000 gallons a day. A 20-year
low interest state loan was secured for
funding. Payment of the loan will not
require an increase in the tax mill-levy.
About 90% of the loan will be paid for out
of the existing and future budgets. The
addition 10% will be obtained from a $3.00
user fee to customers beginning in January
Here is a short update of current
City operations remains very busy
as we wrap up summer activities and prepare
for upcoming winter. Everything is going
well and we thank each of you for allowing
us to serve you.
Thank you for being a part of the Maize family!
