EDGERTON, KS – The proposed 2011 Johnson County Community Development Block Grant Action Plan contains $200,000 in funding for the City of Edgerton to be used to upgrade an existing sanitary sewer main. The sewer main that is proposed to be upgraded has had several overflow and back-up incidents in the past that need to be addressed. The City is proposing to resize the problematic section of the main from an 8-inch main to a 10-inch main.
On September 16, 2010 the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will set September 17, 2010 through October 20, 2010 as the public comment period and October 21, 2010 as the Public Hearing date on Johnson County’s proposed Action Plan for 2011. The Public Hearing will be held during the 9:30 a.m. BOCC meeting in the Hearing Room on the third floor of the County Administration Building, 111 South Cherry Street, Olathe, Kansas.
The purpose of the 30-day public comment period and the Public Hearing is to receive comments from citizens on the proposed uses of the 2011 CDBG and HOME program funding. All comments will be included in the final 2011 Action Plan prior to submitting the Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
