Stimulus Funds Cause Delays

Posted on 11 November 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—A couple of utility projects in Boone continue to be plagued by delays because of the use of Stimulus Funds. The City Council’s Utility Committee found out there will continue to be delays in work on two sewer lift stations and a high service pump located at the water plant. Superintendent of Utilities Roy Martin has told the Committee that the delay is the requirement that materials used by made in America. Martin has said the delay could be a couple of months. One lift station is at South Linn Street and is being relocated south of US Highway 30. The second is on Division Street on the sanitary sewer line that was rehabbed last year.
