Nemaha County Commissioners were updated Wednesday, Aug. 10, on Nemaha Advocates Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NADAA) activities. Mallory Siebold became coordinator in late June after Jessica Baker left.
Ordering materials to rebuild one aeration basin at the wastewater treatment plant was approved by the Auburn Board of Public Works (BPW) Thursday night, Aug. 8. Dave Hunter, general manager, said estimated costs are $13,000 and delivery of materials will be in six to eight weeks. Included in the 2016 budget is replacing the diffusers in one of the two aeration basins. Hunter noted the utility has tried to do so the past couple of years. He said the utility wants to rebuild one basin this year to get a good review of its operational life.
