BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Voters in the Vermont town of Bennington area going to be asked to approve a nearly $9.9 million bond to upgrade the community's sewage treatment plant.
Engineer Wayne Elliot says the project would satisfy a state legal order that the facility comply with its discharge permit.
The Bennington Banner (http://bit.ly/2epRlEM ) reports it would ensure the quality of water in the Walloomsac River and prevent fines while increasing energy and operational efficiency.
A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for Oct. 2 while the vote is scheduled for Oct. 10.
