In order to meet a state mandate by 2015, the Galt City Council will be asked to approve spending up to $325,000 to move forward with wastewater treatment plant upgrades.

By September 2015, the city is required to meet strict arsenic and nitrogen discharge limits imposed by the Regional Water Quality Control Board three years ago.

If approved at Tuesday's regular city council meeting, the money will pay for West Yost Associates to prepare preliminary design documents related to the upgrades. The firm is already working with the city on a related project.

The money will come from the city's wastewater fund.

Also on Tuesday, council members are scheduled to:

  • Approve a one-time reimbursement of $28,000 to the Roman Catholic Bishop of Sacramento for irrigation system and grading related to property adjacent to the wastewater treatment plant.
  • Receive an update from Mayor Marylou Powers on the city's strategic plan.
  • Adopt a resolution regarding the donation of park benches and trees on public property.
  • Make appointments to city committees and commissions.

The city council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the city council chambers at City Hall, 380 Civic Drive, Galt.
