The Village of Sister Bay is now closer to upgrading it's nearly 30-year-old waste water treatment plant thanks to a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant. The $1.6-million grant is the final piece of funding for the project and is being combined with a low-interest USDA loan of $3,391,000. Sister Bay Village President David Lineau says upgrading the community's waste water treatment facilities has long been under discussion.
Sister Bay's Village Board recently approved the hiring of an engineering firm to draw up the specifications for the project. From there, the village will put the waste water treatment facility project out for bids.
