The Village of West Mansfield will be getting its water treatment plant and sanitary sewer updated thanks to a grant obtained earlier this week by the Logan County Commissioners.
The grant, totaling $259,000, was received through the Ohio Development Services Agency for the new "Critical Infrastructure" program. The State of Ohio received 76 requests for 'set-aside' funds like the Critical Infrastrcuture program that are to be used for civic improvements. Logan County was one of 29 local governments to receive the monies.
Activity under this grant is scheduled to begin next month and run through August 2015, but the commissioners accelerated the plan for the West Mansfield updates and set a goal of Spring 2014 for the completion of the project.
The commissioners will first select an engineer to develop the plans, and then will pick a contractor to complete the work. The selection of both the engineer and the contractor will be conducted with a public bidding process.
