MENDOTA — A water project will have the city of Mendota opening the checkbook to the tune of nearly $4 million following action taken by the council during the regular meeting Monday night.

Alderman Walt Weiland said the city had planned to construct a water treatment plant on the site of the new water tower near Interstate 39.

After consulting with other departments, Weiland said the building will not only contain a water treatment plant but also a computerized monitoring system for all of the city’s wells and pumps along with a storage area for off-season vehicles such as the street sweeper and snow plows.

McMahon and Associates is the engineer on the project, with Whittaker Construction as the general contractor. Mayor David Boelk said several local firms will be subcontracting on the project that should begin in July.

A committee meeting to discuss increases in water and sewer bills will be at 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 24. Weiland said the increase is primarily due to the increase in energy costs to run the water and sewer plants.


Wish list: The city approved a nearly $16.3 million appropriation for the coming year.

Personnel: Jon Kaufman’s resignation was accepted. It will become effective next month.

Fireworks: A request by Mendota Area Chamber of Commerce for a donation toward the annual Fourth of July fireworks was approved. The city will again donate $1,500, same as last year.

The fireworks will be at the Mendota Tri-County Fairgrounds at dusk on July 4.
