Elmwood Board approves $2.2 million bond

ELMWOOD—Preparations for the new wastewater treatment plant were made by the Elmwood Village Board early last week. Trustees Neil Boltik and Mike Sand were absent.

Three actions were approved in anticipation of the plant. They regarded:

--A Post-Issuance Debt Compliance Policy for the IRS;

--A Resolution Authorizing the Borrowing of $350,000-Interim Financing/Funding the Construction;

--A Resolution Authorizing the Issuance and Sale of $2,200,000 Sewer System Mortgage Revenue Bond.

In a related item, the board directed the Village Counsel to draft a letter of interest to Pierce County for the purchase of land and a building adjacent to the sewer plant. The structure would allow the village to store sand and salt, and have a heated place for the police vehicle.
