Plattsmouth gets engineer's report on the infrastructure development for the southwest area that includes Four Mile Industrial Park …and takes action to study the next development steps. The report was received after the council voted to not accept an offer for the remaining 65 acres of the industrial park property.
The Cassgram reports Steve Perry of Olmsted and Perry engineering told the Plattsmouth City Council at the March 7th meeting that his preliminary estimate for infrastructure to and into the industrial park is $2.4 million. That includes extending sanitary sewer and water services through Four Mile, paving 2000 feet of a Four Mile road, and doing the grading for pad build-ups and water collection areas. A sewage pumping station would be needed in Four Mile.
Other properties in that area could also benefit from the sewer extension. A sewer assessment district could be created and other properties would then share in some of the sewer costs, said Perry.
“We don’t have to jump in with both feet immediately,” said Mayor Paul Lambert. There are many other stages before any final decision could even been considered, but a motion to indicate the council’s interest in continuing the planning was the next step, he said.
A motion to have the engineer and the city administrator continue working on infrastructure planning to Four Mile Industrial Park passed 5 to 1.
