A member of the Infrastructure Advisory Committee was one of many people who spoke at Wednesday's City Council meeting about a resolution that would delay parts of the $68 million Surface Water Improvement Project (SWIP).

 
Jim Gattey says, on the Advisory Committee, he spent many hours looking into details of potential project and wished that others would have also gotten involved earlier: “I had never seen many of the people who were testifying on and objecting to the project until that public hearing, and it surprises me that so many people are willing to put off their objections or responses to a project that would make it better until after the decision has been made the money has been paid and then they come forward with their own individual problem." Most councilors voted in favor of the resolution with Jim Clinton dissenting. The resolution calls for the Council to move forward on replacing the aging pipe and delaying about half of the project that involves a water treatment facility and hydro-plant.
