Pima to use ARPA funds to update sewer
PIMA – Pima Public Works department head Dennis Lines likes to say that nobody thinks about the sewer until they have to. Well, the town of Pima is proactively taking measures to keep people from having to think about it.
At its Tuesday night meeting, the council – minus Mayor C.B. Fletcher and Council Member Deborah Barr who were both absent – unanimously voted to allow Lines to purchase necessary items and contract for needed sewer work at the system’s lift stations to ensure continued stability.
Lines gave a presentation to the council and advised of the needed repairs to the lift stations, including concrete work. He said the update should include transition pieces that are guaranteed for 40 to 50 years.
