Summer demolition eyed for old sewer plant



ELLSWORTH — If all goes according to plan, the city’s old wastewater treatment plant on Water Street will be only a smelly memory by summer’s end.

City councilors gave the green light Monday night to City Manager Michelle Beal to proceed with the request for proposals process for the demolition of that facility.

Engineer Brent Bridges of Woodard & Curran said he expects the project to go out to bid in mid-April, and that a bid will be ready for council approval in May. Demolition work would then take place in June and July.
