Birdseye town council calls special meeting

From local sources

BIRDSEYE — The Birdseye Town Council has called a special meeting next week to receive an update on the town’s water grant.

Members will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Town Hall, 103 W. State Road 64.

Birdseye has received a $450,000 grant to finance upgrades to the town’s water system. News came last month that the project received its environmental release as council members signed contracts with Indiana 15 for $32,000 in grant administration work, $5,000 for labor standards review and $3,000 for environmental review work.

Birdseye will use the grant to replace some meters, gain a new connection to the Patoka Lake Regional Water and Sewer District to increase water pressure, change some valves and possibly upsize at least one line.

Tuesday’s meeting will be an opportunity to discuss the next steps to making those upgrades happen.
