The Cedar Key Water and Sewer District Board voted unanimously Monday evening to approve a historical joint cooperative project between the City and the Water Board to improve water lines, to be funded by the Community Redevelopment Agency.

Mayor Sue Colson thanked the CKWSD Board for their cooperation in this shared project.

The plans call for replacement of faulty pipes, fire hydrants, and sewer mains, as well as street resurfacing and storm water and sidewalk improvements throughout the city proper.

Interim CRA Director Gregory Lang presented the Proposed Phase II - Streets and Utilities plan at the CKWSD Board meeting Monday. Phase II construction is estimated to cost approximately $3 million and will be paid for by CRA bond funds.

Due to infrastructure disrepair, Lang noted, a lot of work needs to be done. Construction is expected to begin in January and be completed by October 2010.
