On Nov. 21, 2016, the Wilsonville City Council approved a resolution authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with CH2M Hill Engineers, Inc., to provide final design and bid phase support for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Replacement Project. The purpose of the project is to replace a failing 40-year-old corrugated metal outfall pipe the runs from the treatment plant to the river. The project also includes the installation of a new diffuser to disburse and cool the treated effluent when being released into the river. Completion of the repair project is required by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and is expected to be done by next fall. The new outfall pipe and diffuser has a capacity of up to 7 million gallons a day to meet current needs and support future growth in the city.
The City Council also agreed to extend the deadline to apply for 12 different openings on various City boards and commissions until Friday, Dec. 30, 4:30 p.m. The extension provides community members additional time to submit applications for the open positions. There are openings to serve on the Budget Committee, Development Review Board (Panel A and Panel B), Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, the Planning Commission and Tourism Promotion Committee. Applications are available online at www.ci.wilsonville.or.us/apply. For more information contact Sandra King, City Recorder, 503-570-1506; firstname.lastname@example.org.
During work session prior to the meeting, City Council heard reports and held discussions regarding the Year 2000 (Eastside) Urban Renewal District and also on the Transit Master Plan which seeks to identify and recommend enhancements to the City’s public transit system.
