City of Austin seeking bonding dollars to help fund wastewater treatment facility renovation project

The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities is asking lawmakers to pass another bonding bill this year for state public works projects — although nowhere near as big as last year’s record-breaking 1.9-billion-dollar package.   Spokesman Bradley Peterson says top lawmakers appear interested in a 200- to 300-million dollar bonding bill, and the Coalition is asking for 100 million of that for water infrastructure projects.  District 27 Senator Gene Dornink, Republican from Hayfield spoke with KAUS and stated that he has submitted a bill that would complete the city of Austin’s funding request for bonding dollars to help offset the cost of the city’s Wastewater Treatment Facility renovation project…

The project received $7 million in bonding dollars in the 2020 Minnesota legislative session.
