MASON — The ongoing wastewater improvement project was a topic of discussion when the Mason Town Council held its most recent regular meeting.
Michael Yandrich, representing Triad Engineering, Inc., spoke to council members regarding a recent inspection of the wastewater plant de-watering system. He gave council members an estimate of cost and summary of the work to be completed. Council members agreed to have the building, which houses the belt press, fixed during the “Wastewater Treatment and Collections System Improvement Project.”
R.C. Faulk of the Mason County 911 office was present at the meeting to get a signature required to provide 911 service to the town, following the recent resignation of the police chief. Council members voted to have Councilman and Police Commissioner Ralph Ross sign the “User Agency Agreement for Criminal Justice Information.”
